Peter posts about how Blue States are getting increasingly uncomfortable for folks of conservative mindset and recommends getting the heck out of Dodge:
As I've said before, if you find yourself trapped in such a "blue state", or in a blue enclave within a "red state", it's long gone time you started looking for a way out of there. You may lose money by moving, but you'll at least retain at least some degree of the freedom for which our founding fathers fought . . . not to mention your self-respect. Freedom begins locally, with citizens and their local government controlling their own affairs. From there, we can move upward and outward to take back levels of government that have been infiltrated by the progressive enemies of freedom - but it all starts locally.
The Queen Of The World and I did exactly that last year. Even though we lived in what I used to call "The United States of America portion of Maryland" it was still Maryland. We planned our exit for about a year and yes, we had to pay for the move ourselves. For us, it's been worth it - there's no State income tax, so in 4 or 5 more months we'll get to break-even on the moving costs, and you get a lot more house for your money down here.
And the air smells of freedom here. And Peter is exactly right - freedom begins locally and people here (mostly) mind their own business. Nobody cares if you have a Trump sign (heck, or a Biden one) in your yard - which absolutely would not have been the case up in Maryland.
We also had family reasons to move here - we're 15 minutes from grandkids which is nice. I could see this as a big reason NOT to move if your family was all in a Blue State. It worked out for us but won't for everybody.
Long term, there will be a LOT of this kind of sorting. I think it's the prelude to the great national divorce that this Republic is headed for. The Red areas will get redder and the Blue areas bluer until there's really not much common ground between them.
