Add Florida to The Neighborhood?

Many of us have escaped the PRoMD for the Sunshine State. Maybe time for us to talk among ourselves while we celebrate being in free America?

Why Florida? Why not Texas? Why not Colorado or South Korea? Better to have a "Maryland Diaspora" forum, but frankly, more fora are just confusing. I just hit "new posts" obsessively.

Florida got good and it got bad where you hang your hat has a lot to do with how you feel about the place, it wasn't luck I found a good part of the Space Coast, there areas here I wouldn't drive through just like Baltimorge.

I will be a Florida resident in about a month. We close on our house in MD in 1 week and then head to Florida to buy a new house. I can't wait to get the hell out of here.

As of late it seems like a bad idea to move to a conservative state with a good economy as progressives are leaving their states in droves for higher ground but then keeping up with the communist voting style after they move.

Florida, Texas, Colorado, North Carolina, Arizona were all relatively free states that are currently being invaded by progressives and will most likely be blue states within a decade. If you are going to move to a conservative state I would recommend three things.

1. Look at the 2016 and 2018 voting records. You donít want to move to a state that went anywhere below 60R:40D in the presidential or senate elections. The states hovering around 50:50 are just a time bomb at this point which are going to be blue within a decade

2. Look at the tax structure. Places with either a flat or no income tax are a huge benefit to keeping progressives out of the state. A flat tax or no state income tax (normally replaced with a flat sales tax) means that lower/middle people will be the ones footing the bill for any government expansions. It turns out that lower/middle class people donít like paying for this stuff which means the government is not big to start with. When progressives look to move, they will see that the cities donít have free healthcare, free transportation, free parks, free etc and decide to move somewhere else.

3. This is one that I donít personally like but social conservatism is a huge plus when trying to keep progressives out of your state. Abortion bans, marriage bans, large Evangelical cultures, etc are all great weapons against progressives. You want them to look at your state and say ďMan, that place is a backwards crap hole.Ē

The cancer is spreading, no doubt about it. I donít have much faith in America or the youth we are currently producing but hopefully I will be dead before the SHTF moment really happens and can live the last 50ish years in a good state(s).

Keeping my nose to the grind stone to produce inventory to take to FL for hopefully a month in the winter, following the money (horses).


In regards to a move is SC in the running?
