In recent decades the phrase, “As California goes, so goes the nation” has become commonplace, strongly implying that California leads the way in America’s political, social, and economic trends. Sadly for America’s future, this is not a wholly unfounded idea.
One need only look to the effects of California’s leftwing, neo-Socialist laws, regulations, and taxcode upon small businesses to see that, if California leads the way, then that way is to financial ruin.
This is not to say that California doesn’t provide many well established routes for Californians to start small businesses, the driving force in employment.
California’s Many Routes To Starting A Small Business
It’s just that those routes all lead out of California and into states with less punitive laws and taxes and, obviously, the jobs those small businesses would provide followed along the same routes.
Both sadly and scarily, California did lead the way in this. On a national scale America is suffering the same fate as our laws, regulations, and tax code drives corporations overseas because offshoring is the only way that they can survive in the current global market.
