Americans Are Fleeing Blue Counties Like They're On Fire
The National Divorce Is On
Yesterday, I told you about my move from St. Louis County to a rural county.
To no one’s surprise, I am not alone.
According to analysis by Issues and Insights, as reported in Epoch Times, 2.6 million Americans have moved out of Democrat counties and into Trump counties since 2020. From Epoch Times by way of Zero Hedge:
“More than 61 percent of the counties that voted for Biden in 2020 lost population, while 65 percent of Trump-supporting counties gained population,” the Issues and Insights analysis said. The data showed that some 2,562,937 people moved from Democrat-leaning counties to Republican-leaning counties since Biden was elected in the divisive November 2020 election.
Millions of Americans are reasoning like me. Many served their country in the armed forces or as policemen, firemen, medics. Or they worked hard, maintained their property, and paid their bills on time. They raised decent kids (or tried to), and trained their pets.
At critical moments, they took to the streets or penned letters to the editor hoping right wrongs they saw around them. Perhaps they formed organizations, pamphleteered, attended political rallies, worked for candidates.
In other words, millions upon millions of Americans invest their time and treasure in making America great.
For that, they were slandered, libeled, beaten, robbed, blamed, scapegoated, insulted, fired, de-banked, banned from the internet, and disowned by their children. Because, in Joe Biden’s America, a good American is the worst thing you can be.
Today, we learned that the Biden Administration wants to punish home buyers with good credit in order to reward people with bad credit. I’m not making this up. Via Zero Hedge:
A new rule from the Biden administration will force homebuyers with good credit scores to pay higher mortgage rates in order to subsidize loans to those with riskier borrowing profiles, the Washington Times reports.
Did you work hard and play by the rules? Sucker!!!!
Did you think I was exaggerating when I said (repeatedly) “they want us dead?” Pollyanna!!!
Almost 2.6 million Americans (and maybe many more), have realized that participating in protests, letter-writing campaigns, sloganeering, and even elections just empowers the people who want us dead. That’s because the death-wishers literally own those industries. They let us blow off steam, but they control the game board. You might have a joy stick, but someone else has his finger on the power switch. At any time, they can take everything you have. We’ve seen them seize bank accounts, retirement accounts, and physical property of people who merely show up at protest.
The smart ones are moving.
Moving out of enemy territory is not giving up. It’s playing a different game. You’re not Jason Bourne.
You’re not going to force the unconditional surrender of the enemy by hunkering down in St. Louis County and refusing to recycle your glass bottles. That war is over, and we lost.
Luckily, the vast majority of land in America was not lost in the war, as we shall see in a bit. Most of the land wasn’t even contested.
The mutant devil-worshippers who run our fascist, rotten society and government don’t want anything to do with people who live where I do now. They want us dead, of course, but they don’t want to drive all the way out to Bumf**k Egypt to kill us. Their mal-education from colleges with names you’ve heard of teaches them to expect we will all soon die of carbon monoxide poisoning from sucking the fumes from the ejection ports of our “fully-automatic” AR rifles whilst mass murdering families of transgender migrants.
Let them believe it.
Our enemies will tell themselves (for they talk only to themselves) that we are surrendering.
We surrender nothing. Nothing that is not rightfully ours, anyway. For me, who was born and raised in the city of St. Louis, to stand my ground there would be an act of aggression. The city belonged to the Democrats before I was born. They won it through chicanery, but possession is nine-tenths of the law.
Rather, we are claiming our rightful land. We have to pay for it, like everybody else, but we have a right to live and work in a land that lets us live and work and own the outcomes, good or ill. We believe in the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, and we recognize that no one has ever seriously attempted to disprove any element of it.
That paragraph is so important, it’s worth reading here:
We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness—-That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient Sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The History of the present King of Great-Britain is a History of repeated Injuries and Usurpations, all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid World.
Wow. You cannot read that paragraph monotone. Your brain provides the highs and lows, the furious and the philosophical, the profane and the divine. If you read it just now, silently to yourself, your mind paused between “their former Systems of Government” and “The History of the present King of Great-. . .” Paused and took breath.
Why? Because your mind reads ahead, and it knew a transition was coming. From philosophical to legal. Having laid the foundation of his argument in philophical terms, Jefferson transitions, here, to the legal. Jefferson itemized the injustices that prove his case.
That transition demands a pause and a change in pace, tone, and volume.
And then the voice in your head grew louder as you approached that last, famous line:
let Facts be submitted to a candid World.
The poetic metre of that clause is so perfect that a rational person can reach only one conclusion: whoever wrote that is right, and whoever denies it is wrong.
We’re leaving the Blue counties because we don’t want to live wrong among the wrong. We know their way is wrong because their way denies the guy who wrote that clause. Right living means, in part, living as if the truth were true, and Blue areas prohibit one from living rightly. So we choose to live among the right—or, at least—among those who don’t deny the truth. They may not live it, but they don’t deny it.
The Issues and Insights study we cited above provides us an important understanding of what is now meant by Red vs. Blue. It compares population changes between “counties that voted for Biden” and “Trump-voting counties.” No mention of Republicans or Democrats because that old dichotomy is dead. The real divide is where we live, and, praise Jesus, where we live has room for the all right-thinkers and right-livers currently trapped in the Blue Devil counties. Here’s 2016 election map of counties:
Pick a red. Any red will do.
We hold these truths to be self-evident.
Let facts be submitted to a candid world.
The productive and constructive people are making the red better and leaving the blue to rot.
I couldn’t be happier.
