It’s becoming increasingly clear that California’s Democrat values have caused the state to become an unlivable mess of high taxes and draconian rules. As such, more and more of California’s residents are packing up and heading to the reddest of the red states, Texas.
More and more companies have been moving into the state of Texas to escape blue state regulations and fees and, as such, workers have been doing the same. It’s not just regular people like you and me either. Celebrities have also followed suit. Another celebrity considering moving to Texas is MMA fan and podcaster extraordinaire, Joe Rogan.
And Texas Representative Dan Crenshaw couldn’t be happier.
On his podcast, Rogan noted that California’s tax situation is out of control, and its draconian rules during this lockdown continuing through the summer made Rogan comment that he’s not sure if California is a good place to live.
“Here’s the thing, if California continues to be restrictive, I don’t know if this is a good place to live. First of all, it’s extremely expensive. The taxes here are ridiculous and if they really say we can’t do standup until 2022,” said Rogan.
“I might jet, I’m not kidding. I’m not kidding,” he continued. “This is silly. I don’t need to be here. The only reason why I’m here is because I’m close to people like you, a lot of my friends live here, the [Comedy] Store is here. But if they won’t let us do the Store — we can do stand up in other places — why would we stay here?”
Rogan’s comments got the attention of Crenshaw, who openly tweeted out his excitement at the prospect.
“Texas is gonna be even more awesome, if that was even possible. Joe Rogan, Elon Musk…anyone else? Texas is open for business for freedom loving Americans,” tweeted the Republican congressman.

Crenshaw referred to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who also publicly mused about moving his operations to Texas after California’s restrictive rules were preventing him from opening up his factories and continuing on with business.
