(Natural News) We see a lot of talk about states wanting to “secede” from the United States, but apparently Americans aren’t waiting for it to happen and are taking matters into their own hands as they flee the most liberal, most regulated, most business unfriendly, most taxed, most crime-filled and most controlling states, in favor of those less taxed, less crime-ridden, less regulated freer states.

While Democrat politicians, the MSM and online liberals continue to screech and howl about abortion and the conservative states that are passing laws, or allowing trigger laws to go into effect to put limitations on abortion after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade and sent this issue back to the states, the rest of America appears to be more concerned with inflation, especially gas and food prices, and other issues.
Americans also appear to be more concerned for their children, education, and freedom, out-of-control crime in cities run by liberals, while again the media, democrats and liberals across the internet are more concerned with being “woke,” and being “social justice warriors,” supporting abortion, and pushing the LGBT agenda, and gaslighting Americans.
NOW LEAVING CALIFORNIA
Some would say, “but that is just your opinion,” but said opinion is based on data, and numbers and reports of businesses hightailing it out of states very unfriendly to businesses, and people are leaving because of crime, taxes, rules and regulations, all geared to control their citizens.
On August 1, 2022, we saw reports that GEICO had closed all of its offices in California and would only allow consumers to open new accounts online.
Their website currently only lists a few agents in San Diego as open for business in California. Until recently it listed the offices of Bay Area agents in Pleasanton, Pleasant Hill, Morgan Hill, Fremont, Mountain View, Emeryville, San Leandro and San Jose. The Sacramento Bee reports 38 offices are closing and hundreds of GEICO workers are being laid off across the state as a result.
People looking to sign up for a GEICO policy will need to access their offerings online. California customers cannot purchase policies via phone.
This is just the latest examples of the lines that have been drawn between liberals and conservative, Democrat run states and Republican run states.
Since the beginning of 2021 we have seen an increase of businesses “fleeing Washington, California and New York because of crime, violence and anti-business policies,” as reported in Feb. 2021 by Natural News.
It isn’t only crime, violence and anti-business policies that have states like California and New York seeing the largest drop in households, as a mass exodus continues. States like Texas and Florida are the top “population gainers,” as described by Forbes.
Freedom appears to be an issue as well and Gavin Newsom’s desire to control all has even liberals speaking out against California.
Bill Maher recently spoke out, stating he has felt freer in Florida, than in California:
“I certainly don’t always feel free in this state, I must say,” Maher said, adding, “And I have felt freer in Florida.”
NOW LEAVING NEW YORK………
In May 2022 the New York Post reported on the “Startling exodus to Florida accelerating despite NY reopening after COVID restrictions.”
New York has fully reopened after the strict restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic — but migration from the Empire State to Florida has accelerated this year, according to new data.
A total of 21,546 New Yorkers swapped their driver’s licenses for the Sunshine State version during the first four months of this year — a 12% increase from the same period in 2021.
The 2022 totals are 55% higher than the first four months of the last pre-pandemic year of 2019.
Apparently Americans, even some NY liberals, aren’t fond of being controlled and locked down.
New York being yet another far left liberal state with massive gun control (which the Supreme Court recently blocked part of), a sanctuary city, high taxes and a large increase of crime, which is a pattern being seen in cities and/or states run by liberal democrats.
“This is going to probably be a record year for increasing crime in New York City,” said Joseph Giacalone, a John Jay College of Criminal Justice professor and a former NYPD sergeant.
“You have a short-staffed NYPD and you still have policies that go against police work,” he said.
Before moving along, let us note that NYC, a sanctuary city that welcomes illegal immigrants, supposedly with open arms, is seeing its leaders whining about having illegal immigrants bussed from Republican controlled border towns to their town.
Same goes for Washington D.C. Sanctuary city, with a liberal mayor now complaining loudly about illegal immigrants being bussed there.
“The Defense Department has turned down a request from Washington, D.C., to deploy the National Guard to help with migrants being bussed into the city from Texas and Arizona.” – Source
What happened to those open arms welcoming them?
