Advice for blue-state refugees
By Michael Gray
... The bottom line: If you are a refugee from the policies of those blue-state politicians that you elected and continued to support for years, and think that you can just mosey over to a red state, all the while planning to keep your ingrained big government social and political attitudes intact, think again. You're bringing with you something far more dangerous than any biological virus, something that impacts your fellow citizens in ways that can potentially harm them for years to come, possibly forever: your convictions.
Seriously, if you can't muster up at least a tolerance for red state values, but especially their abiding love of liberty, then you might as well unpack the U-Haul, shelter in place in your safe space, and hope that the petty tyrants you put in positions of power don't make it any worse for you and yours. But, as we've already seen, they can... and they will.
