I do think that people in flyover country get tired of being pushed around by a few coastal states.
Add Calif/Wash/Oregon and NorthEastStates to your equation, and the race is nearly over before it starts.
That’s a real tiny piece of the country to be pushing around the remainder. And it represents the lion’s share of entitlement spending, too.
So not only do they push us around, but we also fund their stupidity.
Jefferson was right.
“I view great cities as pestilential to the morals, the health, and the liberties of man.”
