Nevada too. Governorship turned blue in the last election, but there was also massive voting fraud, including illegals voting and polls being held open past the limits to facilitate that. First thing they did was "new gun laws". A lot less was signed into law than was proposed, but some guy stood up at the public hearings and started listing all the people in charge of the effort who had all received recent "campaign donations" from George Soros.

I know more than a few folks in AZ that have said the flight from CA was hitting them hard. The sad thing is, the people that are leaving don't remember why they left in the first place.

Gotta disagree on KS. I just fled...err...relocated back to GA. The new Kansas Governor is going to over tax an already over taxed state. They do have great a great stance on most things 2A (constitutional hunting, no CCW requirement, etc).

The way that I see it, you have two options, you can stay and fight or you can run away.
Remember, it wasn’t too long ago that California was very conservative, it gave us presidents Nixon and Reagan, and help elect Bush Sr.
Conservatives need to expand their base… not reduce it.
Get politically involved.

Am hoping there are many of you more glib of tongue than I to handle that task! I am worried about all the censoring on social media, even though it is a voluntary arrangement , the voice of the left is huge and reaches out to so many . I had to digitally throat punch people and conversations with fools is foolhardy for me, I suck at it, thus I am outta there. In my neck of the woods anything MAGA may just land you in the ER, and I am willing to go that route, but many are not!

I understand, and agree to an extent, but a fight for this city can't be won.

Due to mass legal migration and mass illegal migration and birthright, CA and many other places will never have a chance of turning conservative again. Better to move elsewhere and prepare for what's coming.

There are big differences within the confines of a single state. In my state the libs are concentrated in Madison (the university is the big factor) and Milwaukee. Outside those cities and their suburbs the counties are more conservative, primarily due to hard working rural families who still value work ethics and common sense. Although we have a brain dead Democrat governor, the legislature is held by Republicans trying to hold him in check, e.g. his proposed dollar per gallon gasoline tax increase.

I hear the people in SanFran and LA have just dumped their shit and moved on.

Madison makes San Fransisco look conservative.

I am in the La Crosse area. Has gotten way more liberal since I moved here. Population density has a way of doing that, and the Colleges, three of em! Big Union area as well and all the union dudes I worked with around here were liberal.

It is frequently asserted here that the immigrants flooding across our southern border should instead stay home and fix their broken countries. Does that logic also apply to the conservatives fleeing California?

Can we give them rifles at the border and turn them around?

Good rhetorical question except we are not citizens of California.

LMAO, no. The 50th place in education ranking keeps people out. Also the abysmal weather. I could include a whole host of other items but I think everyone gets the picture...

Some things can't be fixed. Demographics is destiny. At a certain point the cycle just needs to take its course and hopefully something better can be built from the ashes. I get why people are fleeing these broken countries. Problem is there is no way for the people there to fix them. When IQs of 80 or below are the norm, it isn't possible to build a society that functions according to our standards.
