The people in charge who are f**king it all up for everybody else are gonna be the lead ones in the pack buying property up at below market value. Hegelian dialectic in play?

Apparently,

"Some states like California have responded by seeking to punish people for walking away from the collective. This includes a new Wealth Tax law in the works that would require people with high incomes such as business owners leaving California to continue to pay taxes to the state for 10 years, even though they no longer live there. In other words, successful business owners who leave California will have to pay taxes to two separate state governments at the same time."

Is it any different from the US gov requiring American expats to continue paying taxes even if they don't reside in the country?

A bit different. If I'm abroad, I enjoy the rights and protection of the USA through that citizenship. If someone gets jammed up abroad, the consulate will generally check in on the matter. Whereas if I get in trouble in Texas, California isn't sending a rep to help out with the beef. Make sense?
Yes, it makes sense but there's only 2 countries in the world that do that (require expats to pay tax). If you were Swiss or British or Italian and you "got jammed up abroad", the consulate will still help you out despite you not paying taxes to the gov't of your homeland. :)
