What Motivates Our Transient Society

I have written on this subject on numerous occasions and have yet to find a valid answer to the question many of us ponder. Why do people migrate from a Blue state like New York, California, or Massachusetts to Red or Purple states like New Hampshire, Tennessee, or Florida? The obvious answer would be financial or safety. Blue states are getting too expensive for even tax-loving Liberals, and the destination states I mentioned have at least one thing in common: no income tax or sales tax. The Red states tend to have better school systems. They also have lower crime rates than the states where they are exiting. Those are actual crime rates, not the manipulated statistics of Blue states, where they do not arrest criminals and, therefore, have a deflated rate.

So, if people are leaving these Blue states for a better quality of life in Red states, why do they bring their Progressive ideals with them that created those adverse climates they escaped? Why do they vote, or worse, get elected to office, to effectively change the Red state to be more like that which they left? I don’t have a means to get inside their heads for the answer, but we have seen how they accomplish their goals.

I have experienced firsthand two metamorphoses in New Hampshire and Maine, directly linked to Massachusetts. I came to New Hampshire in 1983 but was a rare Massachusetts Conservative and did not impact the Red characteristics then. `Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for the thousands of Liberals who proceeded me. They came to take advantage of the Conservative principles on the one hand and to destroy them on the other.

Since 2019, there have been 40,000 Democrat voters relocating to Maine, especially to York or Cumberland counties. These people have been infiltrating the Maine government and turning it into the most liberal state in the union east of Oregon. Why these people think that because Oregon or Washington state adopt a policy, it is suitable for Maine, defies logic. Even Oregon is rethinking its Progressive drug laws and reverting them to more Conservative policies. The area around Portland, Oregon, has become so Progressive that many counties in the eastern part of the state have petitioned to secede from Oregon and join neighboring Utah.

In Maine, these liberals have put a stranglehold on the areas of Portland, Augusta, Auburn/Lewiston and have gained a majority position in the Maine government. This power has allowed them to push through bills that most Mainers cannot identify. Gun restrictions in their war on the second amendment, the most liberal abortion law in the country allowing abortion to the moment of birth, creating Maine as a sanctuary state for minors seeking abortion or transgender care from other states, and joining the Popular Vote Compact to eradicate the Electoral College in violation of the Constitution are a few of the Progressive laws now on Maine’s book.

To label Liberal Democrats as Progressive is a contradiction of the word. There is nothing progressive in creating laws that show you are against the principles of America and, taken as a whole, show a hatred of this greatest political experiment in the history of the world. That is not Progressive but Regressive and Destructive. Americans are free to choose the state they wish to live in but not recreate it. If that is your purpose, please return to where you came from on the road you came in on.
