Among the cities where people are leaving in droves are places such as Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, New York, and Los Angeles.
God, grant me serenity to accept the things I can't change
Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.

Why?

Because they're finally smartening up that communism doesn't work?

One can only hope...

...and they come to other places and want to make the new place like the old place; e.g., Austin, TX.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, I voted with my feet. For the first time in my life the people I vote for actually win.

Maybe we should not give sanctuary to people fleeing tax oppression from blue states? Austin is a lost cause.

Moving to greener pastures, where they will spoil the land before moving on again. Soon the entire country will be barren.

Some of them are like a Biblical plague of locusts. They settle into a green field, eat it barren, then fly off en masse to the next green field to repeat the process.

Tragically, we found Western New York (Rochester, Finger Lakes) to be more Conservative politically than Dallas.

Many of our neighbors are left wing liberals, seem evenly distributed between native big city Texans and transplants from New York City area and Commifornia.

Ya gotta get out of Dallas County and move out to Denton County. I moved to Dallas in 1991 when I was 26 years old, but as soon as I was ready to buy a house I moved out to DFW area. We’ll turn left too...it will just lag Dallas by maybe 10 years. All the locusts from California will bring their politics with them and ruin Texas too.

I say this as I’m sitting in a Starbucks in Times Square....Bill DeeCommieo, Mayor... :shock:

Socialism in a nutshell.
When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society,
over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it
and a moral code that glorifies it. - Frédéric Bastiat
