hard choice. One often doesn’t know what to do.
And the flight is scary for people who live in those places to which they are fleeing, also. Will the Leftugees soil their new digs by voting for the same kind of Lefty nimrods who ruined their previous state of residence?
Now the answer to THAT question seems to be a qualified “No.” Florida, for example, has had a massive influx of Leftugees. Yet these newcomers are, on average, even more conservative than the long-time residents. Just think of how serious and motivated YOU would have to be to quit your job and find a new one, fix up and sell your home, get new fiends, and (probably) a new church congregation, and move to a place where you don’t even know where the grocery store is. All in order to escape the ravages of Leftism. Only the hardest of the hardcore Conservatives would do that.
Hence, FL became decidedly MORE conservative when the Leftugees started coming!
Now I’m not saying it is all roses. Not all Leftugees are the same. Still, many, after been forced to drink from the bitter cup of stupidly Leftist state governance, are not eager to again stain their lips…
