The great exodus out of America’s blue cities

Post by Doka » 03-11-2019 11:25 AM

Article after article, I see blames Trump policies, like lower taxes and America(Americans)1st, is the given as reasons for leaving these Socialist States. YET, the statistics show, that the mass migration is coming out of Blue States. It's "Double Speak" Agenda. Getting more common each day.

No ! You do Not have to go out of the Country to see the Socialist Carnage, just look to your neighboring States(or the one you are in).





Snippet:
The states people are fleeing? New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Illinois — and at the top, California.

Experts: NYC Could Go Bankrupt for First Time in 40 Years

Financial experts predict that there are already signs the city is headed for financial disaster, as many individuals and businesses are leaving the city for lower tax areas and city government spending is at an all-time high.

The last time the city came close to filing for bankruptcy was in 1975 when former President Gerald Ford refused to give the city a bailout package to settle its debt.

The city is running a deficit and could be in a real difficult spot if we had a recession, or a further flight of individuals because of tax reform,” economist Milton Ezrati told the New York Post. “New York is already in a difficult financial spot, but it would be in an impossible situation if we had any kind of setback.”

The city’s budget deficit has reached an all-time high over the past year. New York City’s long-term liabilities— including pensions, bonded debt, and retirement benefits for city government employees— reached a record-high $257.3 billion, according to an October 2018 Citizens Budget Commission report.

Even though the city’s budget deficit has reached record highs, Mayor Bill de Blasio has shown no signs of curbing the city’s spending.

The Big Cities take down the States, because most of these cities have been allowed to run on Huge State government Free-For-All, Not a Free thing for the people, who Pay and Pay, just the Government it's self. All of these are "Sanctuary Cities"(States) . This is one heck of a way to put a STOP to illegal immigration, but, it will do so, when the Whole Country is plunged into Poverty, who would want to come here ? Not even good pickings for thieves .

Here is some very good reading, for those Who Still care or are still capable of Reading Comprehension

The Experiment

How much longer will the middle class politely tolerate its own destruction?

A middle class that outnumbers the combined poor and aristocracy is a relatively new phenomenon, dating back to around 1900. The rise of the middle class was the result of Industrial Revolution capitalism. It has been one of the most significant and epochal developments in history, yet the intellectual reaction for the most part has been to either ignore it or treat it with disdain. Now the project to destroy the middle class is well under way, with unpredictable and uncontrollable consequences that promise to be just as epochal as its creation.

Intellectual condescension towards the middle class is so common it’s a cliché. What’s rare are attempts to go back in history and see things through the perspectives of that despised group and its progenitors, the poor.
