New York has lost residents whose income amounts to almost 46 BILLION dollars as people vote with their feet to avoid taxes. New York has lost millions (if not billions) in tax revenue because people got tired of forking over their hard earned money to pay for ever increasing social programs and union payoffs.
New York saw a net outflow of about 1.3 million people, about half of whom moved to Florida. Yes, Florida has nicer weather but, more importantly, it has no state income tax and it has no estate or inheritance tax.
New York is not the only state that has seen a decrease in population as other heavily taxed states have lost citizens as well.
Additionally, Florida is not the only state that has seen an inflow of people. The states of Arizona and Texas, both low or no tax states, have seen an increase in residents particularly from California.
People who are able to move from high tax states do so. Those who will not move are either unable because of finances or their jobs or are on the welfare rolls.
From 2000-2010 the states of Texas and Florida have seen a net increase of nearly a million people each, many of whom left their high tax states for tax relief.
Yes, the people have figured that they can’t effect change at the ballot box so they must vote with their feet and move to where they get to keep more of the money they earn. You can only rob people so many times before they decide to pack up and go.
Maryland is seeing this kind of movement as it continues to raise taxes on everything possible. The Democrats in charge, led by Martin O’Moron, think the money belongs to them and that the people should be happy they get to keep some of it.
This will continue to happen until the states change their positions. Look at what Scott Walker is doing in Wisconsin. He brought them to fiscal sanity (and the liberals want to remove him and go back to the losing policies that caused their problems).
We can’t vote with our feet at the national level unless we give up citizenship and that is not an option, at least not for me. The change there must come at the ballot box and we must replace Obama, the liberals and the RINOs.
It is November or never.
Until then, look for Texas and Florida to keep gaining Congressional seats while New York and California continue to lose them.
Never surrender, never submit.

Many members of our military are being disenfranchised as jurisdictions across this country have failed to send out military ballots on time. Those affected military members will not have a say in the government that sent them off to war. These members are being silenced because somewhere between 80 and 90% of them vote Republican.
The jurisdictions that can’t get ballots out to the military have been successful in getting ballots out to felons. They have visited the jails and handed out ballots but they can’t see fit to get ballots to the military. The same people who bend over backwards to make it easier for illegals to vote work hard to keep the military from voting.
There is something you can do to help our military members. If you are having trouble deciding on whether to vote for the Republican or the Democrat in your particular race please vote for the Republican in place of a disenfranchised soldier, sailor, airman, or marine.
If you were not planning to vote please reconsider and go vote Republican for a member of the military who has been disenfranchised by corrupt politicians.
The men and women serving in our military are the guardians of our freedoms and their hard work ensures our right to vote is protected. Even so, they are denied one of the rights they fight to preserve. It is up to us fight for them here at home and vote in their stead.
If you are torn between two candidates pick the Republican in honor of a disenfranchised military member and if you were not going to vote please make the effort and vote Republican in honor of a military man or woman who has been screwed by corrupt political operatives.
The brave men and women of our military have our backs overseas, it is up to us to have their backs here at home.
Be a a patriot and stand up for a soldier.
Never surrender, never submit.

I have a friend who is in a contest which will pay money to develop something to do with green energy. My friend needs votes to win the money to develop his idea. Here is the email he wrote to me.
Below is the link to my idea that is competing in the Pepsi Refresh Everything contest. It is a popularity contest, so I’m running around like a politician on the campaign trail. The contest allows people to vote for 10 of their favorite ideas everyday. Every day and every vote does count, so please vote often.
For your vote to count you will have to register your name on the site [typical], but you do not have to accept any junk mail from Pepsi. It takes about 3 minutes, once your account is created and you have signed in, your vote will register when you hit “Vote For” button.
The name of my project is Green Power. The concept is an environmentally friendly way to convert mechanical energy into electrical power without the aid of a gasoline engine. The applications for this device are numerous, but the focus for my first two prototypes are geared towards private ownership of electrical power and transportation. This is an idea that I have been working on for over 30 years, and it will take about year to prefect the full scale production model. ~D-Day
This is the link he mentioned. The project is Green Power so please be sure to vote for it.
This is the chance for people to actually do something to help with green energy. You can vote once each day so don’t be shy. Liberals, this is your chance to legally vote more than once…

Ben Nelson bowed to his party against the wishes of his constituents on the health care takeover bill that was rammed through the Senate. Nelson is now seeing the result of his betrayal as a new Rasmussen poll finds that he trails a potential challenger by 31 points and the next election for Nelson is more than two years away.
Nelson has recorded a 30 second commercial to be aired during the Holiday Bowl game featuring Nebraska and Arizona. In the message Nelson will tell voters that he listened to them and he believes that this is a common sense approach. The poll indicates that they are not buying what Nelson has to sell and he must realize this or he would not be airing the commercial (which will also air a few times in the next couple of days).
Nelson is trying to convince people that he did what they wanted though they know he did not. The majority of people in his state did not want the health care bill but he bowed to pressure from Harry Reid and Barack Obama rather than paying heed to what the people wanted. The poll shows he was on the wrong side of the issue and if he really feels that he did the right thing then he should not worry about the election.
Julie Schmit-Albin, executive director of Nebraska Right to Life said that one has to wonder if Nelson misjudged the level of opposition from his constituents to this legislation or if he has decided not to “ever seek office again.”
The only thing Nelson has going for him is that he is not up for reelection until 2012 and maybe he felt safe because of that. A lot of things can happen by then but I am pretty sure voters will not forget how he betrayed them.
Nelson chose party over the people who put him in office and he will eventually pay a price for his decision.
Don’t think for one moment that any potential challengers will neglect to bring up Nelson’s vote throughout the entire campaign.
Good. This guy needs to go. He has no spine and he has no conviction.

I wrote earlier about the line I have heard for a while and that is, if you don’t vote for Obama you are a racist. This is becoming a more common theme as The One fails to take control of the election and faces the real possibility that he will lose. His surrogates are out in full force and they are playing a complete deck of race cards and they are dealing from the bottom. The sleazy Obama campaign used Rush Limbaugh’s words out of context so it could pander to Hispanics. Limbaugh had this reaction.
Today, two more Obama surrogates from Ohio came forward to call Democrats and Independents who will not vote for Obama racists and said that not voting for him would be unpatriotic:
Monday afternoon, state Representatives Bob Hagan of Youngstown and Tom Letson of Warren met with reporters.
They argue many voters who call themselves “Democrats” or “Independents”, but won’t vote for Obama, have only one excuse, with Letson saying, “I would say that a lot of it is they’re not going to vote for ‘the black guy’”.
Hagan called the issue “unpatriotic,” adding those not willing to vote for Obama need “to face that fact. That that’s not acceptable in America.”
Both men say they will work to convince those “swing voters” to change their minds between now and election day.WYTV
I think it is worthwhile to take a look at this. Since only Independents and Democrats are mentioned, Republicans who do not vote for Obama are not racists and they are patriots.
If we accept that not voting for Obama is unpatriotic and racist as true then it would mean the converse is also true. Those who vote for Obama are not racist and are patriots. Joe Biden, Obama’s running mate, said that it is patriotic to pay more in taxes.
So, a vote for Obama is patriotic and paying more taxes is patriotic, therefore a vote for Obama is a vote for more taxes. No surprise there.
However, let me educate these two dim witted liberal morons. There are plenty of people who do not care what color Obama is. They oppose his policies and what he wants to do to this country or they feel he is not experienced enough for the job. There are many, many reasons that people will not vote for Obama and NONE of them have to do with being racist. This is nothing more than a strong armed tactic designed to play on white guilt and try to make people believe they are racist if they don’t vote for The One. Remember people, the ballot is secret so you may vote for whom you want. Also, you are not racist because you do not vote for Obama anymore than you are an ageist or a sexist if you don’t vote for McCain/Palin.
This is the way the left thinks. They believe that their views are so natural and so good that there must be something wrong with a person who will not vote for their candidates. In the case of Obama, race MUST be the only reason because, naturally, no person in his right mind could disagree with his positions. It never occurs to the left that people could actually disagree with their views.
I am a conservative Republican so, according to these guys, I must vote against Obama so I won’t be racist or unpatriotic. Happy to oblige!
For you Independents and Democrats who don’t want to vote for him then don’t. If you are worried about the racist tag, this will ease your mind. Obama is half white so just vote against that half of the man.
As for your patriotism, you are displaying it when you go out and vote regardless of who the vote is for. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
BTW, would these people be unpatriotic racists?
