Soon, if you live in a Leftist-controlled state you will know that you are one of the bottom-dwellers.
Because anybody with any sense is packing up and leaving Leftist enclaves for states that offer sanity to their citizens.
The census reports that nearly 7.5 million people moved from one state to another in 2018. People left loser states, preferring to live in states like South Carolina, Arizona, Texas and Florida. The latest 2018 domestic migration data was provided by the Internal Revenue Service.
7.5 million people hopefully leaving the idiotic ideology behind, but bringing their businesses and money with them. This mass migration impacts the Electoral College. That fact is why Democrats fight hard to dismiss the Electoral College.
Consider the financial and political losers.
Described as perennial losers, the list includes Leftists states of Connecticut, New Jersey, Illinois and New York. These states have experienced some of the nation’s biggest drain of people and their money. California experienced a net loss of 190,000 people in 2018. This number has consistently risen over the past decade. When you consider the influx of illegals, this loss of citizens is daunting.
The Hill explains why people are leaving.
Am I the only one in my spinning class at Equinox in Manhattan who’s fed up paying $200 every month for a gym with clean showers, $3,000 in rent every month for an apartment without cockroaches and $8 every morning for a cup of coffee? Am I the only one moving through the greater part of New York City boroughs and seeing an inexorable march of urban decay matched with the discomfort of crowding and inexplicable costs? I know I am not.
New York is the most expensive city in America. Its lower-cost neighborhoods are riddled with crime and homelessness. Its public schools, some of which are among the worst in the nation, look more like prisons than places of learning.
It’s amazing anybody wants to live in these urban indoctrination centers, aka hell holes.
Expensive, crime-ridden, and despair everywhere you look, but they do have their sports teams! And what about Broadway?
But the allure of New York in this example, gets better.
With between up to 50 percent of their paycheck going to a combination of federal, local and city taxes, not including other consumer taxes baked into every aspect of their consumer practices, residents don’t even have the comfort of knowing that their tax expenditures are going to the improvement of their lives in the city. New York infamously misuses the hard-earned tax revenues of its citizens in ways that scarcely benefit them.
Eventually, city and state taxes, fees, and regulations become so burdensome that people and corporations jump ship. More people are currently fleeing New York than any other metropolitan area in the nation. More than 1 million people have moved out of the New York City metro area since 2010 in search of greener pastures, which amounts to a negative net migration rate of 4.4 percent.
Negative population rate. And not just New York City.
Seven states are projected to gain one or more congressional seats after the 2020 election; 10 states are projected lose one seat.
The red-state leader is Texas, with a projected pickup of three congressional seats following the 2020 census — and that after gaining four congressional seats after the 2010 election. Florida will pick up two seats, and Arizona, Colorado, Montana, North Carolina and Oregon will each gain one, according to the analysis.
All 10 losing states — Alabama, California, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and West Virginia — lose only one seat.
But two of those five losing states that voted for Trump — Michigan and Pennsylvania — surprised most analysts since they have been blue-leaners for several years. And West Virginia is losing population in part because of a struggling state economy that has been so dependent on coal.
People worry that these blue state rejects will bring their ideas with them. In their new locales these assclowns will find a lot more vocal constituency opposing them. No more “mums the word” with Conservatives.
Further, people in the red states are much more plugged in politically. No more slow-playing one’s hand by Leftists and expecting Conservatives to grin and bear it.
Next, don’t expect the states losing population to stem the tide. They are Leftist-led and thus unable to change. Nevertheless, change is coming. Faced with hard choices, many of these states will ultimately become conservative. Leftist policies drive economies into the ground. And that’s when people get regime change.
