Colorado Becoming California
November 3, 2010 | Vanity

Posted on 11/03/2010 7:13:23 PM PDT by HapaxLegamenon

Much of the immgrination into Colorado is from emirigation from Califronia. Yet, the new residents in Colorado seem bent on repeating the same mistakes of California in electing Democrats. WTF. California was great as along as it was a majority Republican State. Then in the 90's in swinged wide to the Dems. Are these people insane in electing Democrats who got their original state in so much trouble in the first place that they had to move?

Use your spell check function and proof read your work.

I’m new to Colorado from Illinois.
Colorado beats my old home state in just about every way.
The ONLY problem here is the Commies in Boulder and Denver. The rest of the state is pretty reasonable, people LIVE the second amendment here...

LibTards have a habit of self extinguishing themselves...

Looks like the three Congressional Districts near Denver are the issue. Offer the residents a free one way bus ticket to CA.

Wealthy liberal environmental hippies moved to Colorado from Califoria, they moved to Oregon, they moved to Washington State.

You are placing in opposition here what is cause-and-effect. The Calis flee the high taxes, high crime, and way out of control government interference in all the details of their lives and find fresh air where they can breathe free in Colorado. It is so perfect in Colorado except... well the place just needs a few more services and a few more restrictions and some more environmental protections and it will really be perfect then! and then they vote for those little improvements and then TA-DA! California all over again. That is the danger to all the neighboring states as California goes bust. Oregon and Washington already suffer from the disease but it is ever more contagious and the infection is seeping into Arizona and Idaho. Colorado already is showing serious symptoms. Is it too late to expel everyone who has ever lived in California?

Massachusetts has done the same thing to New Hampshire.

Yes, I live near Boulder/Denver and the angry leftists there are different from the rest of the state. If I could afford to give out one-way tickets to North Korea they would have their utopia and I would be happy!

Yes, all the conservatives should flee Colorado immediately and move to Nevada so Nevada can be more conservative...

I actually read a thread tonight suggesting that....

lol...

as is the case with illegal Mexican immigrants, those “invaders” will inevitably turn their new home into the hellhole they are fleeing....

I believe the opposite is the case. It is not leftists moving from California to other states it is the republicans and conservatives.

For decades after WWII California drew millions of people from all over the country seeking better climate, jobs and affordable housing (which it was back in the good old days). Add to this the fact that California had one of the best public school systems in the country. A lot of these people who moved to California came from the northeast and most settled in and around the L.A. basin and the Bay Area. These people did not flee their old homes because they disliked their leftist state governments and brought their leftism with them. They and their descendants vote solidly for democrats.

It is also a fact that for decades “immigrants” have been settling by the millions in the state. The children and grandchildren of these people are now legal residents and tend to vote leftist because that is what their parents believed and voted for.

With the advent of leftist domination of the state conservatives have been leaving in droves to escape the high taxes and insane regulation. This only serves to make the remaining electorate more and more leftist as those who would vote otherwise flee the state.

The rise of leftists in other states is not due to Californians moving in. If anything the California transplants are more likely to be conservative. The leftists in these other states are either moving in from places like New York or New Jersey (where leftist governance is still popular) or are home grown by being under the constant influence of a degraded media and ideologically driven school systems.

True, Colorado is where an 80 year old man shot two illegals trying to steal his trailer and they filed charges against the man defending his property not the illegals.

Lets hope the trend continues.

The downfall of Colorado all began with singer John Denver and his Rocky Mountain High song. No kidding. That one song made it hip for long hair get-back-to-nature types to move from California and other places to Colorado. The state got bluer and bluer from then on. Now its an island of blue in a sea of red.

Colorado Springs is still Red so I don’t think she’ll move. As long as the land between Denver and Colorado Springs stays in private hands the urban sprwal from Denver is stopped. The land is mostly owned by one family that refuses to sell it for Denver development sprawl.

With 9 Electoral votes good luck.

The DNC knows that whatever they do with a state that has 55 electoral votes ( Kalifornia ) will be covered by the FED.

They are insane in electing Democrats, period. The same thing has happened to Nevada.

There is a similar situation in Northern Virginia. Maryland liberals totally destroyed their state with high taxes. They stare across the Potomac and see that the cost of living is much lower in Northern Virginia, so they pack up and move across the river to Alexandria, Fairfax, Vienna, Arlington, Manassas, Herndon, etc., where they immdediately proceed to demand the same 'changes' that they implemented in Maryland. Before you know it, regulations and taxes in Northern Virginia are unbearable, and now the cost of living there is just as high as it was in Gaithersburg, Bethesda, and Silver Spring. Did they learn their lesson? Hell no. That would require critical thinking, which is practically non-existent in the liberal brain.

You are very astute.

We fled California, specifically Orange County, in 1969. Almost all the leftists I met in Oregon and Washington States since that time came from places east of the Mississippi River.

Coloradans HATE Texans. They just want us to spend our money and leave. Been there and saw it. So, we no longer go there and spend any money. They are even verbal in public about it.

And, after yesterday, we will not go to Vegas anymore. Obviously Harrahs and others don’t need our money either.

Liberal locusts. They start in one state and ruin it with their politics. Then they see greener pastures somewhere else. They fly there and ruin that place with their politics. Each and every time they look at the chaos and destruction behind them they say “this used to be such a nice place to live”. They never learn that their politics are to blame for the destruction.

During the LA riots and the carjacking epidemic and whatnot, the rich entertainment industry limo-libs absconded to other places, including Colorado (Kurt and Goldie spent a lot of time up there, to the point that one of their kids was in hockey, and they owned a business). Also it seems most of the tech bubble zillionaires were libs, and they bought up scenic places by the square mile.
