I hate seeing the articles which point out that fewer people live in flyover states than in places like California and Co, so these states shouldn’t have as many Congress representatives as they do now.
I live in the most abandoned state in the country. More people leave Illinois than any other state. And I’m thinking, God, these folks have accumulated all of the economic, technological, and ideological power. They have won every culture war. They have done everything to make our states unlivable. And it’s still not enough. They still feel slighted. Now they want to take away one last thing that won’t even out the score in conditions of the erosion of the nation-state, which is their number one cause.
Nothing is enough for them. They won’t rest until they drag everybody into their loony-tunes fluid paradise.
