Why are BLUE STATES desirable to live in, but RED STATES aren't as much?
BLUE STATES
California
Arizona
New Mexico
Oregon
Washington
Hawai'i
Minnesota
New York
Colorado
Massachusetts

RED STATES
Oklahoma
Nebraska
Kansas
Wyoming
Indiana
Mississippi
Alabama
Alaska
West Virginia
North Dakota

I'm not saying certain states are better than others. Each state has its pros and cons. But it's an undeniable fact that some states are more desirable to live than others (statistics attest to this).

Oklahoma has the best economy in the country. Our unemploment rate is the lowest in the nation.

If one wants to work in Oklahoma, there's a job to be had.

Also of note, not one single county went to Obama last presidential election. Oklahoma rocks.

Desirable doesn't equate to logical.

Yes, good point. But I think it's the chicken or the egg. The Blue States had and have robust economies, so they draw lots of people for work. As the economic cycle ebbs and flows, many of these jobs are outsourced or have become automated, or are rendered obsolete, so these states then are forced to provide for their much larger populations.

Yes, but you're basing "desirability" on national statistics. I don't live in a state based on its unemployment rate. On tax rates, sure. But I hear ya. That is a consideration, I suppose. But still...it's Oklahoma. (No offense, but when one things of the ideal place to live, Oklahoma doesn't jump out at them).

If you want to live in left-wing, crime ridden,
sexual perversion abounding,
political corruption pervading states,
by all means, go blue.

I'm in beautiful West Virginia, where we cling
to God and Guns and the Bible.
Most of us grow much of our own food.
I get my water from a crystal clear mountain spring.
Free, with no fluoride or chlorine, thank you.
In my neck of the woods there hasn't been a crime
of any kind for decades, and the last violent crime
was a hundred years ago.

Life is pretty much like paradise up here in the
clean mountain air, and just about anyone here would
sooner go to hell than to New York or California.

I live in California. The thing about California is people not from here think the entire state is Los Angeles lol. There are many pockets of pristine, beautiful, clean, no crime areas. Lots, actually. But, like anywhere, those areas are outside of the large urban areas. Texas is a Red State, but Dallas is riddled with crime.

I'm glad to hear about your situation in West Virginia. It's a beautiful state, yes. I visited years ago. Loved it. Really like walking around Harper's Ferry.

EWW texas smells like Swamp ass. That state should be made into a parking lot for the Mexico. Lone star state ha, don't kid yourself, the only reason its called that is because Mexico nor the US wanted that waste land. Nothing good comes out of texas. Never meet a texan I liked or would even piss on if they were on fire. Puerto Rico would be a better state than texas.
