I expect that, within days, the population of New York State will be cut dramatically. Andrew Cuomo, New York's governor has made it clear, in his usual unpleasant fashion, that those disagreeing with his far left agenda have no right to live in his state. So if you take a moral position on abortion or gay marriage. If you enjoy shooting sports or want a firearm to protect your home. Get out of New York. Just get out now. Good (ie. liberal) New Yorkers will have no truck with your conservative abuse of the Bill of Rights.
Now I am sure that many of you out there in "fly over country" think that the framers wrote the Bill of Rights to protect your freedom of speech and religion. You may also think that they wanted to protect your right to "keep and bear arms". That is just conservative silliness. The liberal elites, such as Governor Cuomo, know that the Bill of Rights is there to protect the "good" speech that is the core of liberal thought. And also to protect weapon ownership only of those of which liberals approve. Like their own bodyguards. The rest of you, just take a hike.
So, I suspect, within days there will be a glut of houses hitting the market and moving vans rolling down almost every street in the state. Manhattan, maybe not so much. Family after family will be leaving New York and rolling into such wild places as Wyoming, Texas, and Montana where conservative thought is found more acceptable.
That will, however, leave a void that the elite intelligentsia of New York will have to fill. You see, elites don't like to get their hands dirty. They are not cops, or carpenters, or butchers. People that do real work where they get dirty and sweaty tend to be conservative. They also tend to be tolerant and sharing. Two traits that the liberal elites would be wise to emulate.
Governor, I know that you have a very high opinion of yourself and that little group of people that you surround yourself with. But I suggest to you that just because you have a thought in your head, that doesn't make it a great thought. As a matter of fact, this recent diatribe of yours shows me exactly how small your thoughts can really be.
