Well I suppose taxes will go down then?
Well, from what we hear, hippie type people, nature lovers, dissaffected people who are escaping the bit city, others who choose to be liberal and child free are moving to Vermont. Vermont used to be a socially conservative state. So many transplanted New York liberal types have gone there, that it’s now a solid reliable blue state for Democrat candidates.
Howard Dean was their governor once upon a time. Need we say more. Beautiful state, but my head would explode if I lived there.

As the numbers drop costs remain the same for heating, maintenance and, to a large extent, teachers.
Oddly enough, there are a ton of little kids in my little town in central Vermont, and the local school population is up again. I’m not sure what it is, except that maybe having kids is catching, since I’m almost the only conservative in town. Maybe two or three others that I can think of.

They’re busily educating all those children who are offspring from all those gay marriages they started having.
Vermont is a beautiful state, but many of the people there are crazy as sh!t house rats. I’m sure a lot of them are members of the voluntary extinction movement. And then there are the homosexuals. Nuff said.
It is the global warming reducing the motility of the spermatazoa or the granola eaters.
