Changing demographics

Dana Mathewson

From Urgent Agenda. This could work in our favor, though some of us probably won't live to see it.

Last year, three states in the Northeast — New Jersey, New York and Connecticut — landed in the top five places people were moving out of fastest, according to 2017 data from United Van Lines.

(The other two states on the list were Illinois and Kansas.) And data from Pew Charitable Trusts found that while people are all about moving to the South (their population grew by nearly 1.4 million people from 2014 to 2015) and the West (866,000 more people), the population growth in the Northeast is "sluggish.”

The Northeastern exodus is particularly acute in many big cities like New York City. Since 2010, more than 1 million people have moved from the New York area — which includes parts of New Jersey, Connecticut and Long Island — to other parts of the country.

One reason given was "The horrendous weather"

We told you winter was coming to the North — and it’s so bad that many people are leaving the Northeast in search of better weather. Indeed, the largest migration between states is from New York to Florida, according to data from the Census Bureau. And simple looks at recent winters in the Northeast explain why. For example, in 2015, Boston had its snowiest winter on record and New York City had one of its snowiest blizzards on record in 2016.


Not sure what to think about that. While losing population concentration may help us (it certainly would reduce the number of electoral votes the Democrats get) it may only flip some of the good states that have been solidly in our corner. Then again, the liberals don't reproduce, so they have to recruit or perish. If they go where they aren't wanted aka the south and midwest will they be able to do what tehy did in the northeast? Maybe; they are good at taking over. But then too they may fail to successfully propagandize in their new homes, in which case we may well come out ahead.

I am one of the few people who does not believe this "demographics is destiny" thing insofar as we aren't talking about immutable characteristics (like skin color) but about ideas, and people can and do change their minds. If they didn't we would live in a socialist state by now, because many a young leftist saw the light and turned from their evil ways. But it's hard. As the Jesuits used to say "give me a child for the first seven years and he will be ours for life". Basic beliefs are formed in childhood, and if the liberals get their hands on the children they can make them into a clone army.

People are starting to wake up to that, however.

So Dana I'm not sure what to think of this. It is clearly a sign that the Left is petering out.

Oh, and if they all want to move because of the weather, isn't that proof positive that they really no longer believe in Global Warming? Who is going to move south when you expect a ten degree rise in temperatures?

In many ways that is good news in and of itself
