  • Republicans Little Red Book! New York, California Tax Revenue Tumbles Amid Exodus To Blue States (Red States FLA, TX Show Incredible Gains In Tax Revenue)

    The Republicans’ little red book is showing people escaping big crime and tax states like New York and California for lower tax, lower crime states like Florida and Texas. But to Democrats who are really bad at math, 7+7 = 0? Most people are already familiar with the mass migration from the Democratic strongholds of California and New York, known for high crime and tax rates. We have delved into this in our article, “Americans Continue To Flee High-Tax New York And California,” highlighting Texas and Florida as preferred destinations. California and New York have sustained population declines during Covid...
  • J. CHRISTIAN ADAMS: This Red-State Election Reform Is A Big Mistake

    America’s descent to hyper-partisanship has led to blindness, especially about our elections. The Left has become the nothing-to-see-here crowd, where every election is rainbows and butterflies. They tell us that elections are free from any blemish, any ineligible voters, and any flaws at all. But the Left’s willful blindness is sometimes met with fanciful fears. Consider the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC). Before I first wrote about ERIC a number of years ago, pretty much nobody had ever heard of them. At the time, I pointed out that this interstate compact was formed by a fellow ex-DOJ Voting Section attorney,...

    Flyover country now seems to be a special project for left-wing power elites who would like to spread their agendas and homogenize every small corner of the nation.War on normal Americans seems to have found its final frontier in the conservative small towns and rural communities often called red strongholds on the political map. Infiltration of red America by woke activists and their agendas is nearing, or has passed, the inflection point.Thus, migrants who flee from blue to red communities tend to be of two types: refugees or invaders. Refugees tend to assimilate. They respect the traditions of their newfound...

    Summer is upon us, and America beckons, but not all of it! Let's face it, if the Rose City was on your bucket list, you outlived it.... Perhaps you should have been on Portland's bucket list instead. Forget about Orlando, Disney, San Francisco, Seattle, Honolulu and Denver too; deplorable dollars aren't welcome! But they aren't the only places that label you a fascist; Durango, Tucson, Flagstaff, Gallup, Moab, Wisconsin Dells, Boston, the Hamptons, Telluride, Stowe, and Santa Fe are all woked up as well. Forget about Aspen, Atlantic City, Savannah, Palm Beach, Jackson Hole, Helena, Williamsburg, and even Anaheim...they think...
  • Before Worrying About 2024, Conservatives Should Focus On Making Republican States As Red As They Can Be

    Conservatives should direct their energy toward state legislatures to stymie Biden’s radical agenda.It’s no secret the vast majority of Republicans want to vote President Joe Biden out of office in the 2024 election. And who could blame them? With skyrocketing inflation, banks collapsing, a wide-open southern border, politically weaponized federal law enforcement agencies, ideological grooming of children, unchecked Chinese surveillance, federal interference in U.S. elections, and more, it’s completely understandable for millions of Americans to be on the lookout for potential candidates who could get the country on the right track. While important, the 2024 GOP presidential primary — which...

    A recent New York Post article declared that, in a "staggering exodus," in 2022, more residents of New York moved to Florida "than any other year in history." The article reveals,A staggering 64,577 Empire Staters exchanged their driver's licenses for the Sunshine State version last year, according to figures from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles."They come in every day," a staffer at a Jacksonville DMV office told The Post this week with a weary laugh.

    The Census Bureau’s estimates of the population of the 50 states and the District of Columbia as of last July show that blue-state populations are on the move in astonishing numbers. And red-state populations are benefitting hugely from the exodus.“Texas and Florida make up about 15% of the U.S. population but accounted for 70% of its population growth this past year,” reports the Wall Street Journal. And the movement away from progressive-run states continues, even after the lockdowns have ended.The U.S. population grew by about 1.2 million between July 2021 and July 2022, with immigration accounting for a million of...

    We are all Americans. That said, there have been efforts for years to divide us for perceived political reasons. Those who live in the bigger cities often tend to look down their noses to those who don't. We have become a Blue America and a Red America. I personally believe that the colors are reversed, but maybe that's just me. A good representation of red vs. blue can be seen on the 2020 election map by counties.It has gotten so bad that there are discussions of secession and even civil war, God forbid. It would be difficult to have states...

    The Daily Wire ^ | October 11, 2022 | Luke Rosiak
    The more liberal a state is, the more likely it is to be home to income inequality, according to a Daily Wire analysis of newly-released Census data. New York, Connecticut, and California had the biggest gulf between rich and poor, according to a Census Bureau yardstick called the Gini Index that measures how far an area is from “perfect equality (where everyone receives an equal share).” Utah, Indiana, and South Dakota had the least inequality. The Census Bureau’s detailed annual population study, the American Community Survey, was released September 15, and covered 2021. Although liberals prioritize reducing the “gaps” between...

    The Daily Signal ^ | September 8, 2022 | Fred Lucas
    A senior adviser to the U.S. Census Bureau recalls sounding the alarm about the agency’s population count in 2020. “Me and a couple of other people at the Census Bureau were pounding the table saying there are going to be problems,” Adam Korzeniewski told The Daily Signal. “The sad thing is that no one cared,” Korzeniewski said. Two years later, the Census Bureau has admitted to undercounting six relatively conservative states and overcounting eight liberal states. Critics contend that this inaccurate count now favors blue states over red states in determining Electoral College votes and seats in the House of...

    A left-leaning New York think tank sounded a familiar warning about Arizona’s “voter suppression bills” being “dangerously close to becoming law.” The Brennan Center for Justice added in a press release that Arizona was “taking center stage in the relent­less effort to rein in voter parti­cip­a­tion in the name of ‘elec­tion secur­ity.’” Pending bills, the think tank claimed, were “aimed at making voting by mail harder.” That was in April 2021, before Arizona passed several reform measures that state legislators said they crafted to ensure secure and honest elections. Little more than a year later, in August 2022, Arizona notched...

    When the citizens of the United States are counted every 10 years, those numbers are used for the next decade to determine each state’s federal monetary allowances, and also the number of electors needed in elections to represent the citizens of those states. If any errors occur, those errors will affect these crucial matters for the next 10 years. Our last national census was conducted in 2020. The current 2020 Federally conducted U.S. census is predicted to have an unexpected impact on the upcoming midterms and next elections, due to errors that have been discovered.

    Amid predictions of a political “red wave” in the upcoming midterm elections, an economic wave has been building for years—with no end in sight—as companies flood out of blue states and into red states.As a result of its political divisions, the United States appears to now be dividing itself into prosperous, high-growth states and states that are suffering a chronic decline. But Democrat-run states believe that their abortion policies could be a key factor in attracting companies back.Caterpillar and Citadel, which announced their exit from Illinois in June, are only the latest firms to leave high-tax, high-regulation states.

    A new analysis of IRS data shows the financial consequences of gaining or losing population can be either extremely rewarding or devastating to individual states. In 2020, blue states repelled the highest earners while red states attracted them, resulting in massive economic losses and gains. Wirepoints, an Illinois-based research organization, took a look at the latest migration data released by the IRS and drew some conclusions that should leave Democrat-run states in a cold sweat, wondering how they’ll ever be able to maintain their profligacy. In the competition for America’s best and brightest residents, the most populous blue states are...
  • When It Comes to Economic Success That's Happening In America, Let's Not Forget It's in the Red States: 8 of the top 10 states with the lowest unemployment rates are led by Republicans!

    No matter how much President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party try to tout his supposed economic accomplishments, the president still gets low mark on his handling of the economy, devastatingly low, in fact. According to RealClearPolitics (RCP), using data from April 7-May 17, the president is at 36.3 percent approval rating on the economy, while 59.6 percent disapprove. That may have something to do with how the economic successes that are taking place in this country are occurring in states led by Republicans. Under Democratic control, this country has spiraled, dealing with the highest inflation in 40 years and...

    President Joe Biden’s deputies are taking $377 million from GOP-run heartland states to aid landlords in four Democrat-run states that use illegal migration to inflate their economies, according to a report in the New York Times. White House officials have already pressured governors in states to shift $875 million for poor renters into urban districts, the newspaper reported March 16, adding: Now they are going one step further, pulling back [$377 million in] cash from states with relatively few tenants — like Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming — or localities that failed to efficiently distribute the aid, including Alabama,...

    Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) delivered Florida’s State of the State address on Tuesday, touting the Sunshine State as an oasis for freedom and “America’s liberty outpost” in a nation of lockdown enthusiasts who seek control through what the governor described as a “biomedical security state that curtails liberty, ruins livelihoods, and divides society.” Addressing a joint session of the legislature in Tallahassee, he emphasized the freedom Floridians enjoy. “Together we have made Florida the freest state in these United States,” DeSantis said as he drew a stark contrast between his state and those whose leaders have “consigned the people’s rights...
