New Yorkers, Angelenos and Chicagoans leave their bankrupt liberal states and move to Florida, Arizona and Texas. They are all fleeing the ever-growing power and inefficiency of government, the crime, the sloth, the homelessness, and the taxes and regulations piling up on them. But when they get to their new, resplendent destinations, they keep voting for the same types of politicians and for the same issues they loved in their old homesteads. It’s then not surprising that, after a couple of decades, the new places look very much like the old ones. However, those same voters would never even think they are the ones responsible for the destruction of both places.
