And, ironically, his nickname is Lefty.

“…if you add up, if you add up all the federal and you look at the disability and the unemployment and the Social Security and the state, my tax rate’s 62, 63 percent. So I’ve got to make some decisions on what I’m going to do,” said Mickelson.

Phil Mickelson is an extremely charitable man
Professional golfer Phil Mickelson told reporters Sunday that he is considering “drastic changes” in response to state and federal income tax hikes — including possibly leaving the United States.

“It’s been an interesting off-season. And I’m going to have to make some drastic changes. I’m not going to jump the gun and do it right away, but I will be making some drastic changes,” Mickelson said during a press conference following the Humana Challenge golf tournament in La Quinta, Calif.

When pressed by reporters about whether those “drastic changes” could include leaving California or even the United States, the four-time major championship winner didn’t foreclose the possibility. But he made clear the reason he is considering such drastic options is the massive tax burden he now shoulders.

The next step is walling off America so that you can’t leave. They’ve done it in every other communist nation.

    Only have one family unit still in CA. They are young, with three kids, and trying every angle for a job transfer to get out.

    Where do they want to go? A red state.

    Send your prayers.

    Thank you.

    Texas is no utopia, although we have a one-horse shithole called Utopia where Kinky “Texas Jewboy” Friedman lives. People go there because it’s called “utopia” and to drink its limey, crappy bottled water by the same name. Many of them wind up leaving because it’s miles from nowhere and hot as Hell. Life here is tough.

    Texas has Federal internal checkpoints where you lose your 4th Amendment rights just for driving on the highway within 100 miles of the border. It has a city chock full o’commies called Austin. Don’t move there unless you’re one of ‘em because it will be like you never left your present Borg hive of libtards.

    It’s being colonized (on purpose) by a Third World invasion. As a result, cities like Houston are a multiculti armpit. The “immigrants” are being radicalized to hate whitey, and our individualist culture is being diluted to political inertness like the rest of the nation.

    You will still have to pay Federal income, State sales and State property taxes.

    It is hot as Hell in the summer, everywhere, you can’t escape it unless you stay indoors six months out of the year, or drive 500 miles from San Antonio into the Davis Mountains where there is nothing.

    If you come, bring money, needed skills, guns/ammo, strength of body and character and an intense revulsion to collectivism and tyranny. You will need all of them. Just don’t expect utopia.

    He obviously made these comment before he heard Comrade Obama’s inspiring inauguration speech.
