Default Anyone Regret Moving to a Free State From a ****-hole State ?????



Advertise Here

I left California after 55 years five years ago
My life has literally improved in every single way.
Spirituality
Physically
Financially
Freedomly Bigly ( just trying to keep with the ly endings)

So we have some here say "Stay and fight"
Super-stupid
Or the
"What happens when we run out of free states"
Better question
I think the free states have a couple three more generations to go
Then, I guess we did what we could

But the question in this thread is

"Does anyone regret moving to a free state from a ****-hole state ?????

I do not
Should have done it 20 years ago, not five

I moved out of my birth place of Washington State 21 years back and my only regrets was losing all the natural beauty, recreation of Puget Sound and the Cascades. I love that where I live now I do not need permits to build, my taxes are much lower for property and vehicles and people are respectful of private property rights.

As another thread communicates... might be a really good time to leave Virginia.

Choose wisely!!!!!!





I went from a MAJOR RED STATE to a Gray One, that has since turned BLUE. If my BLUE STATE goes dark blue.... I will leave and there will only be one regret.... it will put me further away from my grand babies.

I left NJ for NC 14 years ago. I had a better job in NJ but everything else about the move is positive. I know my daughter was raised in a much better place. We moved just before her 4th b-day.

All the Red states that accept Blue state migrants eventually turn blue
there is no hope
Wen everyone from there comes here, here becomes there.

Look at NC SC VA CO....

I left a free state over 20 yrs ago for another then-free state of Colorado. Unfortunately the locusts from Cali, Chicago, NY and DC came here too and it's time to look again.

I have met many California ex-pats here
Every single one is solid
There is just less free stuff here and we do not attract illegal scum and liberal scum
So, no such problem here, but that is a problem

Moved with the family when I was 14 in the mid 70’s from California. Thankful that my dad had the foresight.
Watched as the state has worked to civilize its image, to bring in industry. I on the other hand tell people that we’re still fighting Indians ( technically true) and most of the roads are unpaved (by mileage, true) to keep them out. The problem is, every generation needs to see the damage done by blue state thinking. Fortunately we have tornadoes working for us.

timberline,

Don't live on the front range nor in counties with destination ski resorts like Aspen, Vail, Steamboat Springs, or Crested Butte. I live in sw Colorado in Archuleta County and we (and our sheriff) simply ignore the fools in Denver with their stupid gun laws. Would it be better if the State government was more in line with the Constitution? Sure, but essentially most rural county sheriffs nullify the unConstitutional stuff emanating from the front range.

That said, we should ban liberal Californians from polluting our state with their foolishness. And yes, I am a Constitutionalist former native Californian and I'm never going back...not even for a visit.

only reason I moved to CA was the job
only reason I stayed was the job, and the time built towards a pension
when the job went away I went away
living off the pension in a much cheaper state.

Ohio has been losing population for 40 years but itís a good loss as itís coming from population centers.

No coincidence weíve been Red about as long, no hip lefty wants to live in a dieing waste land

If you want to live in a 'free state' then you should choose the least populated county in the least populated state. Liberalism and regulation is the direct result of concentrations of people. There are no cities that are as conservative as the surrounding rural areas.

What happens is when people live close to each other the problems that arise become the foundation of a progressive mindset. Homelessness, affordable housing, pollution, public transit, multiculturalism...etc

Ditto! And Italian Beef sandwiches.

I left Chicago in the late 1970s. I've never regretted it and would never move back.

I moved to Minneapolis before the Dummocrats turned that into a ****hole. Today, Minneapolis is one of the 25 most dangerous cities in the USA due to the importation of over 100,000 Somalis. Now I'm glad I left that, as well.

CA used to require you to continue to pay income tax on a pension earned in CA if you moved to a state with no income tax.



As for ourselves, I was born and partially raised in CA as a kid. Came back later as a Marine and stayed to work civil service after that. We REALLY liked 29 Palms and would have liked to live the rest of our lives there (great doctors down in Palm Springs due to the millionaires) but just couldn't stomach the rapid decline of the state as of late.

No regrets for leaving, though the wife has a few over where we ended up. She has started to wish we were in Idaho closer to where her best friend left CA for.

Yep, getting off the front range is absolutely the plan and we haven't completely ruled out the western slope vs another state. The problem is that while the FR races headlong to become the new Calirado it's a matter of time before you can't escape it on the other side of the divide. What happens when Denver institutes background checks on ammo, confiscatory tax rates to pay for their social programs, etc.... It'll be no better than the people in California who live east of I-5 but are ruled by the leftists - but then that's the case in ANY state as well.

So what happens if you don't pay it? Do the folks from the CA Highway patrol show up in Wyoming to collect?

I wouldn't necessarily call all of Michigan a ****hole, but the area I was in certainly was.

What I miss most are Flint style coney dogs.

Other than that, not a thing.

This is going to sound like a really weird question, but ...

In the rest stops along the interstate highway in Ohio, is the default color of the water in the toilets still yellow, even in just-flushed toilets?

When I was a kid and we'd travel south through Ohio to visit my mother's parents in Kentucky, I remember that. All the rest stop toilets looked like someone had..

1) Peed in them,
2) didn't wipe? (I was in the women's room), and
3) had forgotten to flush.

As a kid, I thought this was absolutely hilarious!

*flushes the toilet*

"LOOK MOM, IT'S YELLOW LIKE PEE NO MATTER WHAT!! HAHAHAHA!"

*flushes the toilet again and laughs*

"STILL YELLOW!!"

Mom rolled her eyes. Lol.
