You are 100% spot on. They are like a disease spreading their liberalism wherever they go. Then they are shocked when the people they vote for raise their taxes and turn the new beautiful place they “discovered” into a complete shit hole.

This is exactly what is happening where I live. Yes, THEY DO bring with them their politics. Most of them are now angry about inflation even though it is their politics that create the inflation. They don't seem to understand that nothing is truly "free." Some might even bend a little and say "we need to pay a little more for ...," but they don't realize just how inefficient is the process to get to their dreamworld.

Basically, it's simple. While leftist ideas seem nice on paper, in practice they do not work, because there is one thing that all of these ideas share in common. .... They always ignore the human element, that people behave based on incentives.

Some believe, for example, that the government can fix a person's economic plight by bringing to them a good job. What is the driver for that job? If it currently doesn't exist, then all you're doing is taking from some area that does have the right incentives and distributing it to an area that does not. You have to believe that someone in government knows better -- that they know what people need above and beyond what the (productive) people themselves believe that they need.

With good reason too. Instead of teaching math and science, the democratic-educational complex in blue states are teaching kids the 60 intersectional genders and how to tuck and tape. Will do wonders for the next generation of solar panels or carbon capture technology....

What’s not being discussed is how 90% of Republican counties are losing population and how deaths outpaced births in 75% of total US counties in 2021.

When you’re talking about people moving - you’re talking about baby boomers retiring and the economically well off switching jobs or working remote. That’s not that interesting of a trend.

And Texas is turning blue. That's why Abbott is up 6 to 8 points over the Betoboy.

California's trends are downright fascinating.

Only the libs could take a state with so much natural beauty and turn it into this.

The Republicans lose about 200bps of vote each presidential election cycle. In 2004, Democrats garnered 38% of the vote. In 2020, it was 46.5% of the vote. Texas will switch Democrat within a decade.

You said that a decade ago.

You aren't paying attention. Most Americans want their children to learn math and science, not counting the amount of intersectional victims in society. Democrats are out of touch. Eliminating grades? Eliminating honors programs? Math is racist?

That cost includes services such as porta potty's and probably counseling. Meanwhile you guys have no solution to the high cost of housing.

The solution is Trump 2024.

Why are you such a dumbass sometimes Catch?

Have you ever fed pidgeons before? Expansion of social services will do nothing but create more dependents, which is what the left ultimately wants in their quest to dismantle the American family.

Hispanics polling Biden at 19% approval.
That’s catastrophic for not only Texas, but will turn AZ and NV red, and turn FL more red than TX

Cities are now $hitholes, mostly. You have no idea how the rest of the country views the progressive ilk other than from inside your bubble.

B.S. I want the drug addicts cleaned up so they can be productive members of our society. Even if they cost us, to where they cost us a lot less.

Even Trump naming Supreme Court Justices won't amount to a damn. Unless some Republican wacko takes out one of our relatively young justices.

Don’t tell him that. @PaoliLion is much more entertaining as he makes “off the wall comments” from his liberal bubble of denial.

Well I said about two years ago Latino's coming across the border are one generation from being Republican.
. they are family oriented - Is a newly re located hard working family more in interested in their children learning reading, writing and math, or that the country they just left everything and walked 300 miles to get here is racist, and that their 8 year old is going to be in a gender sensitivity and awareness class instead of reading.
. they are people of faith - Kicker and Paoli have been clear what they and the D's think about people of faith
. they are hard working I am pretty sure they don't like paying taxes so a bunch of elitest snobs from New York and California can get their school loans forgiven.
The recent disapproval ratings Hispanics have toward Dementia Joe could be the beginning of a long term trend.

If you were to script a Democratic playbook over the next decade, these patterns are exactly what you would want to see.

Are both sides celebrating US migration patterns?

Correct. The democratic playbook is to destroy the states and cities they run.

That is happening.

Fortunately some people can move.

Seems like you would be celebrating immigration, but your brethren would all sit at the border and shoot them down like dogs if you were allowed. And you wonder why hispanics are overwhelmingly democrat.

Well at least you admit it. The DNC is selling out the best interests of the American people in their quest for power. Just like the big guy himself.

You clowns have been saying this for 25 years. Political classism is realigning. R’s are becoming the party of the working class, the populist movement is only in its infancy, world wide. If Desantis messages Trumps policies without the bluster, he wins 35 states. The D’s are clustered in failing urban areas, dependent on perpetual fake social outrage and culture wars to stoke fear and dependency. The 33% of people in the middle who decide elections see this vividly.
A female Mexican candidate winning as a R in south Texas is the canary in the cave here. Be warned.

Republicans are in failing rural areas. The counties gaining population are all Democratic. Almost all Republican counties are losing population. Republicans haven’t won the popular vote since 1988.

Your narrative is complete bullshit

What we need is more legal and no illegal immigration. Both parties would prefer to make it a political issue. IMO a reasonable solution would take about 30 minutes to work out. It would require some compromise which the most conservative and progressive wings of the parties don't want. The 1987 deal didn't help and fostered a lot of mistrust.

That’s the rub. For all the shade you throw at rural areas, which were decimated largely by union overreach and terrible Democratic and establishment trade deals, we have urban areas in this country that literally look like Bangladesh. And this is your definition of success? I lived in NYC for more than a decade, it’s a shithole now. Almost everyone I know has left. 75% of NYC public schools lost students this year and 25% lost more than 10% of their student base. It’s dying.

I will let you guess this American city:

Is there a link for this data? Here in Maryland which is predominantly democrat the counties that are gaining population are both democratic counties who gain mostly through Hispanics, and republican counties mostly through people leaving the democratic ones. If you eliminate the Hispanic influx then the growth of the state is generally swayed to to republican counties.
