Liberty returns to Michigan

We call these pockets of resistance.  And we classical liberals / constitutional conservatives welcome them. Now we just need the kind of leadership that can point confidently to the successes of such dramatic retaking of state economies and not run away from the very changes that turn states around.

Oh. And we also need a way to prevent the locusts who flee collapsing states from setting up in new states and, having benefited from the fiscally conservative infrastructure they moved in to, begin turning these states blue, using the health of the state economies to push for “compassionate” progressive programs, which in the long term will kill of those erstwhile healthy states, as well.

I mean, that seems rather greedy, doesn’t it? — moving from state to state, voting yourself the resources of those productive members of that state, then moving on yet again once the all the cash has been wrung out from the electorate, and you’ve artificially influenced the electoral college vote to keep Democrats in power?

Hell, even gypsy roofers have more pride than that.

Forget the border fence for a bit:  fence up the red states, instead, and let the illegals and the progressives and the client-state dependents settle in the blue states until such time as they’ve run them so poorly they come begging for bread to go with their political circuses.

And the price of bread?  Fidelity to the Constitution.  Or else you’re on your own.

And good luck hunting and killing a Starbuck’s Mocha Cookie Crumble frappucino and almond biscotti.

  1. Yes! Michigan, now one of the 24 right-to-work states. Hoffa, who’s your DADDY?

  2. “. . . a way to prevent. . . ”

    Montesquieu looked at this as mostly a matter of republican education, which, while obviously a long term prospect, at least has the virtue of working both for the in-migrants and the aboriginals.

  3. Oh.

    Which, sadly, would probably include Colorado these days as the Fort Collins-Boulder-Denver Axis of Cerulean appears to be metastasizing across the rest of the state.

    Governor Moonbeam Junior. “De-Brucing.” Amendment 64 (which is likely to give Colorado a lesson in the Law of Unintended Consequences, and give it to them good and hard).

    I swear, Nebraska is starting to look attractive of late…

  4. So,
    Where do I sign up to take a punch for liberty?

  5. If getting employer benefits without paying union dues is BAD, why is getting government benefits without paying taxes GOOD?
