Texas and California Spar over Jobs and Taxes: Better Governed State?

California has the beaches, weather, Silicon Valley, and other wonderful things. I've grown up as a California native and never dreamed of leaving the Golden State.

However, in my opinion, the public and government have run the state into the ground. They've created massive debts/deficits and expect my kids to pay for it. The next generation may decide to take their ball and play somewhere else -- like neighboring Texas, Arizona or Nevada. Those states have smaller governments, less tax burdens, less regulations, and higher employment.

"Building a business is tough. But I hear building a business in California is next to impossible," Perry says in a cheeky radio ad that aired ahead of his tour of the Golden State this week. "See why our low taxes, sensible regulations and fair legal system are just the thing to get your business moving to Texas." Which state do you think is governed better: Texas or California?

    I live here in TX and it is a well known fact that people from CA are moving here in droves but we have folks moving here from other liberal states as well. Anyone that wants to build a business or just wants to have a better chance at living a decent life is coming here. We have beach down south if that's what rocks your world but let's face it...who has time to just walk the beach every day...unless of course you're retired.

    Colorado (as I live there) is making the 'California Transformation' and SUCKS just as much (if not more) as California...like it or not. My eyes are on Arizona.

    Your manners needs improvement, not to mention your complexion. If you can't spell "Texas" right, then do yourself and the World a favor. Don't comment. You're only showing how low down on the "Intelligence Quotient" (I.Q.) Scale you are (Equaled to the size of your shoe). If you're going to debate, at least, debate Intelligently! That's a "No Brainer!" I don't make it a habit of attacking someone else's State, especially since I have relatives that live in California (Two Cousins).

    The 'Poor', what a worn out refrain if there ever was one. California steals from its lawful citizens to give to the Mexican Nationals streaming across its borders, just admit it. 'The Poor' my a$$. I have lived in both states (have you?) and you are FACTUALLY wrong.

    You might want to check your facts before you go to preaching about how CA takes care of the poor. Trust me, no one is starving to death in the great state of TX. We take care of our neighbors here.

    I Love my city in California but I cannot stand our government they ruined California down the toilet pushing residents away to live elsewhere with such a high cost , Why the hell California even need governments anyway , The Mayors seems to do a much better job and wants to lower prices of housing gas , taxes and other things but the governments orders they just won't allow it !

    What's there to decide, Texas has a lot less taxes, and a lot less political controversy, and they don't have Pelosi, or the other whaco Congresslady whatever her name is.

    I've lived in both states. I liked them both however I would choose California. It is beautiful and the temperature is comfortable without the terrible humidity.
