Default VA went blue

And I cannot live here anymore. Kinda saw this coming and have been planning for it. Were going to sell the home and move into the motorhome full time. South Dakota will become our legal domicile. VA was already drunk on taxes and enough is enough. Hard to see whats going on in this country with socialism and anti-constitutionalism.

Step 0 - Convince wife we gotta go
Step 1 - Find a job outta the Commonwealth
Step 2 - Sell the farm
Step 3 - Buy new Farm in a place that Isn't a Socialist shithole.

Yeah, I'm unhappy in Virginia. Especially after yesterday

I have been gone almost 30 years, so VA is well in my rear view mirror.

We are both going to have to flee Texas eventually. Just look how close Beto came to knocking of Cruz. It's coming.

When you look at voting demographics, almost the whole state is usually red, but Northern Va, and Richmond carry the whole state. I was born in Leesburg, and raised in Pulaski county, and I certainly don't have liberal values. That said, even when I lived there, there were plenty of us that called it the communistwealth.

Welcome to Pennysyltuckey.... The whole state is red with the exception of Philly and Pittsburgh.

Insane that the city masses can speak for the rest of the country....

Same thing at national level, and why we have an electoral college. Were it not for that, we would have preceded Venezuela down the toilet.

Here are your voting demographics. Family members in Va are pissed, and well, discouraged too. As said, if not for the electoral college system, we would already be part of Kalifornia or NYC.

Welcome to California...

It's that way here too James. The Coastal "Elites" control the rest of the State, which is more or less Red.

I don't think we are more than an election or so from it being that way in Ga. There are enough libbies in Atlanta, with more arriving daily, that soon, the rest of the state will fall under their rule. Scary man...

A lot of Californians are moving to Atlanta, thriving film industry there. It WILL change. Bank on it.

You can run, but you can't hide.

It's like a disease. They destroy one place, then move to another and destroy it.

Yup, it's a Cancer. The education system in this country has indoctrinated and conditioned the youth to a certain mindset, it's over now. Only a matter of time.

You just have to wonder if patriots will rise up, or fade away whimpering in the night. There will be no middle ground.
