    Alaska and Wyoming aren't blue states and neither is Louisiana. Oh and West VA voted for Trump in 2016.

    People have been leaving the north and northeast for the south since air conditioning became commercially viable.

    Problem with these people moving is they keep voting for the same kind of people and policies that caused them to leave in the first place.

    It's not politics, it's economics.Once I retired there was no way I could afford to stay there. What I pay in property tax now for a year would barely cover three weeks of property tax in N.J. They kept telling us it was for public education. For the amount of money I was paying I should have been butt deep in Einstiens.

    It's really no different from people leaving the Soviet bloc countries (back when they were under Communist rule) in search of a better life.

    But, but, but I thought the wealthy didn't pay their fair share. Wait till the other 98% has to pick up the tab that the wealthy was paying and then they'll be begging for the wealthy to return
