Well, you have your choices:

• Stay where you are and live cheaply under a Fascist dictatorship.

• Move to a Blue State and endure their high cost of living and Socialist governance.

• Take your chances on living in another country that is allied with the current American government.

my perennial suggestion is southwestern washington state, relatively blue and reasonable and affordable compared to areas north which are as unaffordable as anything.

Is staging a revolt an option?

Or move to Portland and do some street camping but wait they are going to be making it illegal now so camp in a vacant lot of camp in an empty field or something.

The American left calling people they do not like fascists. The American right calling people they do not like either communists or the real fascists. Political hyperbole can sometimes be so tiresome :roll: .

Texas needs a Mao-style Cultural Revolution, especially in the Panhandle.

There is one county up there (Roberts) where Abbott won unanimously. 100% of the vote.

Moving works, look at Florida. We had people move in droves here that espoused our conservative views and we took the Mid-Terms.

You can't have it both ways. Either enjoy a lower cost of living while complaining about the government style that allows you to afford it, or relocate to a place that's going to charge you through the nose for your Maoist ideology. Have to thought about a commune? That would solve some of the worry regarding financial survival. Research them, find one that is close to your ideals, then contact them.

Trust me....you don't want Mao. Under Mao, millions of people were killed because they didn't agree exactly with his brand of communism.
