The migration data is particularly powerful, and its one of the reasons why Californias class-warfare tax policy is so suicidal and why Texas is growing so rapidly.
um... this is NOT a good thing.
We here in Texas are being flooded with refugees from liberal states who bring their voting paterns with them and haven’t been seeped in the culture of Texas. This is what happened to California, and if it happens to Texas the Republicans will never win another national election.
You’re absolutely right about what happens when libs leave one place and migrate to another. They will always bring their wild-eyed liberal politics with them. You can take the animal out of the jungle but you can’t take the jungle out of the animal.
In a smaller version of that phenomena, some neighbors we used to live next to were big champions of liberal causes. (Both of them naturally lived off of government jobs.) Eventually some of those causes turned out to have “unanticipated consequences” for them and, after telling everyone how great the new utopia was going to be, they were the first people to pick up and leave the county. I pity their new community.
“This is what happened to California, and if it happens to Texas the Republicans will never win another national election.”
Unfortunately (and realistically), it’s no longer a question of “if” it happens, but how long before it happens.
Hispanic demographics down there are going to hurt you folks, as well.
I doubt either of these trends can be reversed — at best, “managed”.
But time is not on Texas’ side...
