I am voting with my feet this year.

And taking my 6-figure income with me (I work for a multinational and they don’t care where I live).

That means that the first state or two to secede will get the best and brightest from the rest of the country immediatley. Imagine, no EPA, no Federal tax, no OSHA, Imagine FREEDOM.

I work for a multi-national too. The new scheme is to assess tax in any
