“I’m outta here.” Those were the words Joe Rogan told his guest Joe De Sena recently. “Here” meant California, where Rogan has lived since 2003.
Where is Rogan moving? Texas.
Rogan’s criteria for choosing his destination:
- Center of the country
- Easier to travel to both coasts
- A little more freedom
- An uncrowded area
Implied in his point “a little more freedom” is the lower–read: zero–income tax rate in Texas. Rogan recently signed a mega-deal to move his popular podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, to Spotify. The deal is worth $100 million, and moving to Texas could reportedly save Rogan $13 million in income taxes.
It’s no wonder Rogan, like many Americans, is looking for a better America.
Americans are concerned about rising crime in big cities. The Hill’s Julia Machester reports:
A majority of Americans say they are concerned about rising crime in U.S. cities, according to a new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill on Monday.
Seventy-seven percent of respondents say they are concerned that crime is rising in the nation’s cities, while 46 percent of respondents said they were concerned about rising crime in their own communities.
“At the same time they see an increase of violence and crime and are concerned that prosecutors are not prosecuting the crimes — they blame the protests and the high unemployment when asked what is responsible for the spike in violence,” said Harvard CAPS/Harris polling director Mark Penn. “They also single out social media for being used to coordinate violence and in their view not doing much to curb it.”
In 25 large cities analyzed by the New York Times, murder rates are up 16.1% compared to 2019.
Fear of violent crime has spurred Americans to buy firearms in record numbers. They are getting their guns and their training before it’s too late.
With high crime in big cities, and blue state governors punishing the working class with severe lockdowns, now is the time to consider a move to a right to work state with low taxes and a pro-business government.
At a minimum, escape the city, you’re going to like what you see.
