...What reapportionment says about the future is perhaps less interesting than what it says about the present.
Red states are gaining population relative to blue states because of the divergence in policy. Jobs, and thus people, flock to red states because they are generally easier places to do business. If the states are, as Justice Brandeis posited, laboratories of democracy, then places such as New York, which will have lost sixteen electoral votes since 1960, and Massachusetts, which will have gone from fourteen to nine seats in those five decades, must be considered failed experiments....

Oh great. They bring their liberalism with them.
Unfortunately, Blue state liberal retards bring their voting habits with them. STAY AWAY from the SOUTH. You are not welcome!
Yes, they do.
I view things like taxes-to-cities a form of tribute to keep them in their hellholes and not come out to infect the America that remains uncontaminated.
Could it be ... gasp ... a tax thing?
I hate the color purple.
Stay home and stay blue you liberals!
In the west we call that Californication, when Californians visit your state and like it so much they decide to move there.
Well, another take on it is that we have a chance to win people over to Conservatism. Conservatism and Freedom do work.
In any case, this will give red states, right to work states and states with no income tax more power. That’s a good thing.
Just send the bimbo blondes, maybe they are trainable.
What this ultimately means is that while the House becomes more Republican, the Senate becomes more entrenched Democrat because only the House changes with the shifting populace. The shrinking blue states just become a deeper blue.
Some do, but generally it is the fed up conservatives that lead the exodus.
I sure hope so.
they are generally easier places to do business
yeah but they turn states like Virginia and NC purple
Most of these liberals are too stupid to ever learn a lesson of any type.
I see them rolling down I-95 in rented vans and such, loaded to the hilt with people and junk as they escape the hellholes they have created by their laziness and greed and, like locusts, move to the southern states.
Since birth they have been taught they are owed everything and they will not change but they will overwhelm the conservative voters in their new southern homes and start voting in the "gimmee" politics and laws they think they deserve.
I most certainly agree with that, stay away from the south. The lib bastards are surrounding me. I was out working one day and tired of the toil went cross country to my favorite creek swimming hole. I had not been that way in some time and lo and behold I came across a house that was not supposed to be there.
The new owner was at first taken aback by my Marcel Ledbetter attire of coveralls, no shirt and boots and even more surprised when he found I spoke rather good English. He is a stock broker he told me, come to the country to find peace. I allowed as to how we wanted to keep it that way, quiet. Upon further conversation he asked where to dine locally and I advised that Clara’s Kitchen had good specials and a mean jalapeno and jack hamburger but that she was kinda irregular in her hours. He said he hoped we would get some “better” restaurants here when more people moved in. I told him if he wanted “better” restaurants and more people he should go back where he came from while he still could on his own terms. I did not tarry for further repartee.
We had a little place like that back in the mountains of East Tennessee that served up a bacon cheeseburger to die for...damn; I miss that place. :-(
“New York, which will have lost sixteen electoral votes since 1960, and Massachusetts, which will have gone from fourteen to nine seats in those five decades, must be considered failed experiments....”
The biggest mistake George Washington made after defeating the British was not burning NYC to the ground. All the whores in New York City flipped their skirts up to every enemy Redcoat walking past and it hasn’t stopped for more than two centuries. New York is seditionist city.
Any patriots in NYC are rare exceptions to the overwhelming enemy rule.
