(1) California is also warm. Why aren’t they moving there.

(2) if having low taxes attracts more residents, then isn’t it a sign of effective leadership when a state can manage to not have an income tax, yet offer enough services to make people want to live there?

(3) “the people you know” aren’t a meaningful sample, sorry. I know retirees who have moved there for the weather, and i know younger white collar workers who lived there for the opportunity to have a similar ( if not better) quality of life at a far lower cost.
