Are they? Not seeing that. Texas is receiving high number of Cali refugees. But no one wants to live in fucking Alabama.
Black people are moving from Chicago and detroit to Alamba and why wouldn't they most of the African American community lives in good ol dixie.
Not so much state-to-state comparison, but here in Boston, the poor neighborhoods are getting bought out by developers and gentrified. You ever hear of “Southie?” Like South Boston from The Departed or whichever of the 20 Boston crime movies you like best? Lmao. I don’t even recognize it anymore, at least the people you see walking around, now young professionals live there, it’s not working class Irish guys who won’t think twice to smash a bottle over your head anymore, lmfao. They tore down some of the projects and built condos. The poorer folks are being priced out of the city and they’re moving first to the immediate small cities outside of Boston, but the same thing is happening there, it’s been gentrified. So these people are forced to move farther and farther out of the city, and many are heading to the western part of the state which is much more rural but has a couple TERRIBLE small cities that they can afford to live in. Give it another 20 years, they won’t be able to afford Springfield and Worcester anymore, and then you might see movement to cheaper states.
Areas like LA, San Francisco, Chicago... I think the same stuff is happening if people are relocating to the south. It’s apparently in less demand to live there so costs are much cheaper. I remember watching HGTV once and they compared a really nice house on the San Francisco Bay that cost millions, then they showed a comparable home in Missouri that was like $300k. You can’t buy yourself a warm doorway in Boston for $300k, that MAYBE gets you a shitty house in a lower-income suburb. So you can definitely live like a king by comparison in terms of your home if it’s elsewhere, but... downside: what the hell is there for anyone in Missouri, with all due respect to the Show Me state, haha. I hear St. Louis is awful and Kansas City is even worse, so there’s really not much of a draw to be there, or let’s say there are probably fewer and less lucrative opportunities there.
@WhiteSteve its happening everywhere. The people who built those neighborhoods and made them a success get pushed out by hipster liberals who then vote democrat who impose high taxes. Its like when California raised the minimum wage to $11 an hour what was the point because prices rose as did taxes.
Yeah, I mean, I don’t know if I like assigning conservative or liberal to every perceived problem, I think America on the whole needs a whole lot of reconciliation, because pretty much everybody is an asshole now and my respect for Americans’ values on both sides of the political aisle are at an all time low. Pretty embarrassed to say I’m from here right now, and that’s sad. As far as Southie, those old Irish people who used to be there were pretty fucking scummy in a lot of cases, and they were just working class people working for The Man in menial jobs just to pay the rent for their apartment in a triple-decker. I don’t know how much they made the neighborhood great as I don’t believe they were business owners, just laborers mostly.,” I don’t think the neighborhood ever was great, I think people around here just like it because they felt like it gave Boston some street cred, honestly, haha.
@WhiteSteve thats how it starts every generation does a little better.
I get what your saying and don’t completely discount it, but as a native Bostonian... doesn’t apply to Southie😂
Cripes, what did I go to Southie High?😂...*you’re
@WhiteSteve do you know Mark Wahlberg?
Lmao, no, but we’re both from Dorchester, same neighborhood. My cousin was actually at a party back in the day and she kind of rolled her eyes at some Dorchester chicks because Donnie Wahlberg had showed up to this party, pretty soon after New Kids On The Block’s heyday, and they were making a big deal of it, and my cousin isn’t basically real life Daria, not too impressed by anything, so she’s just like “so the fuck what?”, and these chicks were about ready to kick her ass over it😂😂😂
Just had the thought looking at an voting map. It’s a variable we need to figure out don’t we?
No, it isn't. What we need to do is respect that people have their own reasons for voting how they do and stop being so uppity.
Right, let’s not look at issues. Just ignore them.
How people vote isn't your issue. It's none of your business. People have the right to use their vote as they see fit. They don't have to justify it to you. You might not understand why they do, and that's okay. It's their business why they vote as they do.
Honestly I was thinking Dems need better marketing. Wasn’t really criticizing them necessarily.
Dems need better candidates. Hell, both sides need better candidates. It's sad to think this is the best our country has to offer it's citizens.
I’d say the candidates aren’t the best we could do, but the majority keeps electing them to be candidates.

Yes I’m a small business owner who votes for higher taxes. Red states are welfare queens who vote for tax breaks. Strange lot we all are...
That’s rich from a Trumpist.
No such thing as a Trumpist. It isn't a position.You bully people who vote differently than you. You don't want a democracy. You want people to vote as you vote.
Didn’t say they’re utopian. But those two states are the pillars of our economy.
I’ve heard south Illinois takes a lot of welfare, but the state is actually ranked in the forties when it comes to federal dependency. Prob bc of Chicago”s businesses.
Honestly I’m just looking at federal dollars in, versus federal dollars out to red states.
Like how California has a 54 billion dollar deficit?
California has the economy of a small country. Again, look at federal dollars in vs out.
Funny enough the states most at risk of bankruptcy are left wing states. Highest debt states? Left wing.
But if you actually are curious about federal dollars it pretty easily boils down to race. African americans are net consumers of tax dollars.
A lot are. I’m not praising the rich but only stating the irony and hypocrisy of welfare states being the most extreme conseractive.
Not sure about that, but if you factor taxes from each state vs what they receive from the Feds, red states are in the red, like $1 for every $10 they take. NY and Cali are reversed, $10 in taxes for every $1 they take.

Being critical and pointing out hypocrisy ain’t dissing.
If you want to point out hypocrisy there is plenty in the Democrat party. You'll be busy for the rest of your life. It's better to work for a united America rather than playing party politics.
It’s better to criticize than sweep it under the rug.
but that's what you're doing with Democrats
Trump loves the poorly educated!
