How about conservative FReeper yankees?

I moved from a union yankee state to your lovely Palmetto state. Since I moved here, republicans have taken every state-wide political office, elected a conservative governor and sent more conservatives to the US House.
So in all humility, I’ve decided to credit me moving here as the impetus for South Carolina shifting more to the conservative side. Okay?
(Love your peach cobbler.)
New York staters are a pretty conservative group. If you take out the city and a few suburbs (westchester, rockland, nassau) the state is pretty conservative leaning. Lots of hard working blue collar people that like to hunt, fish, go to church and watch football on the weekends want and be left alone. Too bad all the power is concentrated in a relatively small part of the state. Same could be said of PA and NJ for the most part. I lived and worked near the big city and in Buffalo and I can tell you that it’s two different states, one north of the Tappan-Zee bridge and one south.
I left twenty years ago and never looked back and I’m a better, richer person for it. I have friends that struggle to pay their $12,000 a year property tax, $300 electric bills not to mention heating oil in the winter.
I get tired of telling them to get the hell out of there about ten years ago.
It took me a little time but I was able to shake the big gubmint expectations when I moved to VA and then NH.

Good luck with that. A HUGE number of my high school class (’76) presently lives somewhere between NCarolina and Miami. Add in the retirees and you have a full blown invasion. It makes MASSIVE economic sense to leave NY and head south, for young as well as old.
Right on, brother.
You’d think that states like SC & GA would welcome the opportunity to expand their gene pool. Trees with few branches eventually die out.
