Americans Are Ditching These Five States In Record Numbers

Apparently surging violent crime, massive tax hikes and insolvent public pensions are bad for attracting new residents...who knew? On the other hand, 364 days of sunshine per year, minimal crime, brand new infrastructure and some of the lowest tax rates in the country seems to be, to our complete shock, somewhat appealing to folks looking to relocate.

But that is just a couple of many interesting takeaways to be gleaned from the latest annual "U.S. Migration Report" from North American Moving Services which found that Illinois was the most ditched state in 2017.

Van Lines

A quick review of the data above, combined with the more comprehensive domestic migration map below, reveals a few other interesting themes:

1.  People continue to flee the indebted, pension ponzi burdened liberal states of America in record numbers, with Illinois, Connecticut, New Jersey and California all ranking at the very top of the most ditched states of 2017.

2.  The natural migratory pattern of New England and California's liberal elitists seems to be toward cheaper and lower taxed states in the Southeast and Western portions of the country...go figure.

Van Lines

Of course, this data from North American shouldn't come as much of a surprise as we recently noted that Illinois lost a staggering ~125,000 residents in aggregate, or roughly 1 man/woman/child every 4.3 minutes for the entire year of 2017.

In fact, recent Census Bureau  numbers also confirmed that the mass exodus from Illinois was the largest of any state in the country with lower taxed, lower cost of living states like Texas and Florida posting the biggest gains. 

Meanwhile, adding insult to injury, the domestic migration out of Illinois was enough to push the state down one notch on the overall state population ranking tables to just below Pennsylvania. Per Illinois Policy:

Here are some other observations of recent migratory patterns from North American:

Northeastern states - Connecticut has consistently been in the top 10 of outbound moves since 2013. It was #1 in 2013 and #2 in 2017. Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey have also made the list consistently since 2013. Maine and Rhode Island have both gone back and forth in having more inbound and outbound moves over the years.

Southern states - South Carolina was in the #1 spot in 2013 and 2014, then started to slip down. They were still in the top 4 but lost their top ranking as the state with the most inbound moves. North Carolina beat South Carolina for the first time in 2016 and kept their rank in 2017. Tennessee, Georgia, Florida and Texas remained constant in the top 10 from 2013-2017. Overall, the Southern states have had more inbound moves than some of the other regions.

Midwestern states - Illinois has consistently been in the top 3 positions of outbound moves since 2013, getting the #1 position 3 times. Michigan has been on the top 10 list of states with the most outbound moves since 2013.  Iowa consistently had more outbound moves than inbound until 2017, when it had more people move to the state than out of the state. Kansas has consistently had slightly more outbound moves, as well as North Dakota and Ohio. South Dakota has gone back and forth in having more outbound and inbound moves. Wisconsin was consistently having more outbound moves until 2016.

Western states - In 2013 and 2014, Idaho wasn't in the top inbound states. Then in 2015 it was #1. It remained #1 in 2016 and slipped to #2 in 2017. It is currently the nation's fastest growing state, with its population increasing 2.2% between July 2016 and July 2017. Oregon, Arizona and Colorado have consistently been in the top 10, with Arizona #2 for 3 years and topping at #1 in 2017. The western states also have had more overall inbound moves that the Midwest and Northeast

Of course, the overall trend of folks moving out of 'Blue States' and into "Red States' could spell disaster conservative politicians running in national elections...that is unless the folks ditching their over-taxed, insolvent, liberal bastions on the West Coast and New England actually understand that the conservative policies in their new home states are precisely what attracted them there in the first place...somehow we doubt that will happen.

Quick! Put Yankee immigration border controls at the Mason-Dixon line! We don't need more Yankees in the Carolinas and Tennessee!


No more illegal Yankee liberals! They are raising taxes and prices in the Carolinas and Tennessee!

Rising crime?


Woman delivering meals to the homeless attacked by African rapefugee with machete

SHELBURNE, Vt. (AP) -- Police say a man in Vermont has used a machete to attack a woman in her 70s as she delivered meals to a motel being used as emergency housing for the homeless.

WCAX-TV reports 32-year-old Burlington resident Abukar Ibrahim is accused of attacking the 73-year-old Meals on Wheels volunteer who was dropping off meals at Harbor Place, which serves as a temporary emergency housing facility. The attack happened Friday in Shelburne.…

I am Groot: ANYTHING the liberal Democraps touch immediately turns to utter and total shit. Not even manure quality shit either.

Actually, it’s the opposite. Just Google 1980’s/1960’s pictures of liberals states/cities and compare to now. All these cities were trash before neoliberal ‘consumption’ economics. Profits by and of speculation. Do Jews and Trump ring a bell? There you have.

The problem with these cities/states is that there are millions of people, because America is a Christian nation and they want to reproduce. They just can’t help themselves. And now you guys are complaining of few hundredths ‘Christians’ moving to your locality? Are you sure you guys are Christians? From where I stand is doesn’t look like. If I were you, I would do a DNA test.

What the actual fuck are you babbling about? Youre post proves you have absolutely NO idea what you are trying to convince us of.  I come from a blue collar family, a family of people who were conservative and held the jobs of civil engineer, civil servant, planner, etc... The great cities we once had were flourishing under the command of conservatism and real christians! They went to shit when you fucking liberal idiots destroyed the heart and moral of them by infiltrating into positions of power and stealing your way to wealth and power. This has turned into destroying states, and now countries...


Take a look at some pictures of our once great cities during the 20s - 50's, notice anything?

Between 1980 and now, all of the U.S. was "flourishing" under 2x Reagan, 1x Bush sr., 2x Bush jr. and now 1 year Trumb, with 2x Clinton and 2x Obama a clear minority. America should be "great" after so many Christian presidents. What happened?…

Biggest jump of course Obama, but that was the 2008 recession. Biggest out of the blue air jump under Reagan.

Now wait what Trumb's "Tax Reform" will do. Wage a bet that debts will explode even without a new economic crisis?

And regarding how your cities look, after all these years, my firm belief is they were mostly destroyed by your car fixation. Which of course is a bipartisan thing. Suburbian deserts, dying malls, dead city centers. You destroyed your own country and home towns by making them fair game for the car industry.

Americans Are Ditching These Five States In Record Numbers

My response: DEMOCRATIC STRONGHOLDS are crumbling. Migration probably made up of conservatives trying to get out of high taxation and immoral DEMOCRATIC HELL ZONES.

DEMOCRATS .... what can one say? These people in many cases are the scourge of America and a CLEAR and PRESENT DANGER to the REPUBLIC.

This is how to interpret this activity. Now that the libs have ruined the place they live in they want to move to less expensive places and start tainting those with liberal tax / spend policies.

They fuck up one place and then move on to another to do it all over again.

"They fuck up one place and then move on to another.."

Call it, the locust theory of social decay, perhaps.  OK, and that seems to be the author's conclusion too, that red states become more blue.  Maybe.

An alternative interpretation:  the people who migrate from blue states are those w/enough get up and go to get up and leave.  IOW, they are NOT the chronic complainers, blaming someone or something else for their problems, waiting for someone else to fix things.  They take action by voting w/their feet.  So maybe instead so-called blue states simply get bluer and the states, rel. to each other, become MORE polarized.

Good catch


Lets take acloser looks at these that SAY they are "Jews" but DO LIE

Revelations 2: 9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

and here

Revelations 3: 9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

and here

John 8: 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Yep, and that exactly what they bring with them when they move to these southern states. Most of these people are white and have money, but they vote for the same shitbirds that ruined the states they are fleeing. It might seem nice to see your property values go up and you local economy grow, but these people are locusts. They just turn the areas they populate blue over a few years. This might seem amusing to watch capital flee the blue states, but electorally this isn't a good thing

Correct. I grew up in a conservative family in Flint, Michigan. Moved to Colorado in 2006 into a conservative area. Now its slowly turning into Californication with all of the dumb ass libtards moving in from CA. Everywhere they go, they fucking ruin everything - brain washed assholes!

This frustrates me, too. I left because I couldn’t deal with the locust people anymore. Many have only been there a generation or less. It all started going downhill when they started flooding in during the Great Depression. Basically everyone that moved there for economic reasons. They’re the locust people because they seek out a lush place with a good economy, eat it alive, suck the lifeblood out of it, vote to steal from people there, then when it gets hard for them they leave. Hate these people with a passion.

Holohoax Alert

by Alfred Schaefer

MONIKA SCHAEFER was arrested on January 3 2018 in the very heart of “Holocaust country” while attending, as an observer, the bizarre inquisition hearings against the courageous Sylvia Stolz. This “trial” was for illegal words that Sylvia Stolz had spoken at the “Anti Censorship Coalition” (AZK) in Switzerland in 2012. The twisting nonsensical accusations of the inquisition was beyond bizarre. What the snake that calls itself the “State Prosecutor” did, will be something that will amuse future generations when studying the “witch” trials of 2018.

Forty-five minutes into the inquisition the “State Prosecutor” snake called for a surprise break, which was then used to arrest my courageous sister Monika. The only thing Monika did was watch quietly as the inquisition was dealing with Sylvia Stolz. These people have us under close observation and figured it was a good opportunity to demonstrate their “power” and intimidate us.

Another snake masquerading as a “State Prosecutor” accompanied by three heavily armed thugs handcuffed Monika and dragged her away. When my sister protested that she is a free person from Canada and had done nothing wrong, the “State Prosecutor” snake told her, “if you wanted to stay free you should have stayed in Canada”. (Welcome to Holocaust country.)

Now they have moved Monika Schaefer to the high security prison in Munich and will keep her there indefinitely. Monika is accused of making an apology to her own dear mother. The title of the video was “Sorry Mom, I was wrong about the Holocaust.

What has angered the Jews is the fact that this one little video has undone hundreds of millions of dollars worth of their psychological warfare that most of us had become victims of. They thought that their ridiculous “Holocaust” program was now firmly wired into our brains, and then, along comes Monika and blows it out of the water with a simple apology to her Mom. That really surprised them.

This is happening at the same time that our borders are open and millions of young men from Africa and Asia are flooding into our European countries with a free pass to do whatever they want. This is something that the Jews had planned for the European countries for a very long time. In the end our cities are supposed to turn into Lagos- or Calcutta-type slums that can no longer resist Jewish hegemony.

The sick perverted criminals that ordered Monika arrested are people that put a pancake on their head and nibble the foreskins off of little eight-day-old baby boys thinking that this odd behavior somehow gives them the privilege to rule the planet. These perverts are the same ones that tried to silence me a long time ago already, but have failed. Here they are: B’nai Brith Canada.

To put Monika Schaefer in prison because she apologized to her Mom is making many people very angry and not helping people “like” the Jews very much. In fact, this may give Jews who want to come clean and join humanity, the opportunity to help us get Monika out of prison. So, if you are a Jew, we have many JEWdicial costs to cover, and helping Monika out of prison can be used as proof that you are a “good” Jew. Just contact me and we can work together.

Yes, Are you not aware of the jew supremacist anti-free speech laws in Germany, Italy, Austria, Canada, and ten other Euro countries. They have been trying like jew snakes to wrap it around your neck too. They have been passing them under the guise of hate speech laws- and the jew supremacists are the ones whom choose what is deemed hate speech and you have no say in it. Just try to call your representative and complain about your infringement of free speech by these laws and see where it gets you.

Yes she and many many others like her are in jail now and have had their lives destroyed by these filthy lying scum jew supremacists.

The shalom gang has invaded ZH. And while it's true your post has nothing to do with the article, maybe somewhat fact ambiguous with too much bold, it is very important to hammer away and continually expose the biggest and most expensive lie (wars, blood and money) - the ultimate fake news jew holocaust that never happened. For a highly scientific and never refuted analysis of the so called gas chambers, that conclusively establishes not one person was gassed to death in any prison camp between 1942 and 1945, please read and carefully study the Rudolf Report. You can get it online free. Jews are brazen liars that do whatever they want, stoop to any low to get what they want, and the jew holocaust myth is only one piece to their satanic scam to perpetuate their fraud.

The story about ppl being imprisoned for telling the truth about the jews fraud is absolutely vital, and every American should be alarmed and on guard, because the jews want the same power to destroy the freedom to speak the truth about their lies.

The entire Congress is controlled by the jew, that keeps them in line by blackmail. The jew controls the money, media, and courts as well. They use us to siphon off our blood and treasure to pursue their foreign agenda which is objectively of no use or benefit to Americans. They get away with it based on the political version of the Harvey Weinstein factor. American politicians prostrate themselves before jew money to get elected and re-elected.

So your story ought to be plastered everywhere until the ppl of this world reject the jew agenda, jew money, and jew advice. It is all demonic garbage that demonstrably has led, leads, and always will lead to nothing but trouble - unless societal dystopian degeneration, national bankruptcy, and endless war turns you on.
