There is always one major characteristic of people and places that lean more towards liberal socialism than conservative capitalism.
Those people and places become so accustomed to having their lives structured and paid for by the government that whenever their way of life is threatened, they react like drug addicts panicking over where their next “fix” is coming from!
The very idea that they might have to actually pay for everything out of their own pockets from earnings they’ve received from the kinds of jobs the rest of us have to work at to pay our bills, sends them out into the streets protesting and suffering financial withdrawal.
According to Independent Journal Review:
While the results of the election almost certainly ran a current of heartbreak through these left-leaning states, it seems the top-ten states which Hillary carried by the widest margins all have something else in common: people are clamoring to move out of them.
Stephen Moore, writing in the Washington Times said:
“the reasons Americans are fleeing these states are all driven by economics — namely, that they share the progressive values of “high taxes rates; high welfare benefits; heavy regulation; environmental extremism; high minimum wages.”
Here is an amazing statistic. Of the 10 blue states that Hillary Clinton won by the largest percentage margins — California, Massachusetts, Vermont, Hawaii, Maryland, New York, Illinois, Rhode Island, New Jersey, and Connecticut — every single one of them lost domestic migration (excluding immigration) over the last 10 years (2004-14). Nearly 2.75 million more Americans left California and New York than entered these states.
And where are most of these blue state residents fleeing to?
“states that had the highest percentage of voters come out for Trump — including Wyoming, West Virginia, Oklahoma, North Dakota, Kentucky, Tennessee, South Dakota and Idaho”
Plainly, people are starting to see that Socialism isn’t the grand utopia that liberal politicians are making it out to be and people are showing their lack of faith in it by moving to greener pastures in Conservative states!
