This is 100% accurate.

The sooner the better, sez I. Because as I always say, the Left is never going to stop all this horseshit lunacy; it will have to BE stopped. Yes, that will surely mean violence and bloodshed, I’m afraid. So be it. Ace lays down the straight skinny:
The people with all the actual privileges scream that they’re “marginalized,” while attacking the people who are actually marginalized by the system as, supposedly, “privileged.”
It’s a madhouse, and one in which the lunatics run the asylum.
And it will not last long.
The left wants a revolution?
So do we.
Bring it on, soibois.
Mega, mega, megadittos.
As I’ve often said, the police exist to protect the criminals from us.
Up until a couple years ago I would have and did disagree we were near any sort of civil war. I now think it more likely than not.
I didn’t want this War. I was hoping against it. It’s one Election away.
There is no where else to go now. I saw Hong Kong coming. It took some time but I got my family out. I knew NYC and suburbs were useless. I went to NC but I need something for my family where I am. Still, it’s a 40 year old Hippie area.
I hope I can root around a little while longer, since that is what I have been doing all my adult life.
“Still, it’s a 40 year old Hippie area.”
Well, semi. There are a lot more of me and you than of them, we’re just not seen. That nearby school still proudly has Navy ROTC, displays the American flag frequently, and continues to have a fall football game dedicated to the military. There is still more good than bad.
That school has to take take a majority all across NC.
The people here around it are pretty liberal. The professors there are pretty liberal.
IF you don’t prepare your kids now to understand how to duck the liberalism, they will become indoctrinated.
Half my neighborhood is unc,=.edu.
They took down Silent Sam.
Mostly outsiders from what I’ve been told. But point taken.
The people in my old neighborhood were liberals if you judged by the loudest/most prominent voices. But I would guess it was 2:1 or better Americans Vs citizens. But the neighborhood is just a small slice of middle North Carolina. Outside the bigger cities it’s a different world.
Probably once the kids finish school we will look for a more conservative nabe in NC to move. Preferably with lower taxes.
Plenty of those. And not really very far from your current location.
We’re getting the lay of the land as we wait.
I was born in NC, Greensboro – moved to SC at age 12. When we moved back to NC (wife also originally from NC) the hardest thing to do was pick the “right” place. My first choice was the very liberal enclave and neighborhoods of Davidson College in Davidson. But there was simply nothing on the market. I didn’t care about the neighborhood libs. I had time and spent over a year before I chose, close to two years in fact. Settled on Huntersville and within a year Mecklenburg county screwed up the school system as it existed when I moved here. Managed it anyway but learned a lesson, nothing will stay the same.
Were I doing it today some 30 years later I would move to the same place (assuming same work location) but I would do the educational part differently. My kids were the last to finish HS before it became completely worthless. They basically eliminated all the worthwhile advanced class structure within a year of my youngest finishing.
Back to Davidson. My youngest two were in daycare there and made lifelong friends there. We have quite a few friends from Davidson, some work for the college. Some are very liberal in their view but none are deadbeats or anti-law. I could live next door to almost any of them without a problem. None of them even have rainbow hair 🙂
OK, I’ll plug NC just a bit further. Once we get rid of that sorry ass governor (it will happen this Nov) the state goes back to being business and family friendly with reasonable income tax rates. Property taxes being location, but even then better than lots of other states.
We have outstanding universities if a young person wishes to learn. We have some of the most beautiful coastline in the world and beautiful mountains in the western part of the state. Not much you can’t find here. Good road system reasonably well maintained (at least outside of Charlotte, that city sucks in every damn way), and decent housing available at all levels. Weather is true 4 season for most of the state without the sub zero weather, hardly much less than 20F outside the mountains.
You picked wisely IMO. If I could choose to live anywhere (excepting the coast) it would be very close to you…
