I saw a bumper sticker today in Denver that said a lot: “Vote conservative—if liberalism worked you’d still be in California.” We’ve certainly been getting lots of transplants from California lately.

PREACH!! And it’s really bad here in Austin. The mayor openly talks about SF and how it’s a model of tolerance.
As the bumper sticker says, “don’t California my Texas”. Or my personal favorite:
VOTE CONSERVATIVE
If liberalism worked, you’d still be living in California.

California Democrats flee to Arizona and vote blue.
If liberalism worked you’d still be in California.
Soon they’ll be fleeing Arizona and ruining another state.

Some say that a sign at Idaho’s western border reads, “Welcome to Idaho! If liberalism worked, you’d still be in California.” The sign may not be real, but its message deserves serious consideration.

To all of you leaving NYC, stop voting for your own oppression, if liberalism worked, you wouldn’t be moving.
