I live in Connecticut. It is a Progressive, Liberal, welfare state that until a few decades ago was prosperous and Conservative. Connecticut used to build world class machinery, lead the world in the insurance industry, and serve as the arsenal of Democracy. Nowadays we in Connecticut can’t even put together finger nail clippers.
What happened? It seems too many seemingly rational people took the easy road out and moved to greener pastures.
There are far too many former Conservative Connecticut Yankees out West and in the South. Texas and Florida seem to be prime destinations.
Why does it seem that Conservatives get tired of fighting for their principles and simply move to a more rational environment? When will it be time to draw a line in the sand and consider retaking our state and freeing ourselves from the tyranny surrounding us?
