Lots of surveys purport to show the opinions of the American people but every ten years the census gives the most authoritative account of what we really believe. This year census numbers show a profound preference for conservative values and governance as population and economic growth shifted decisively away from liberal states. The most left-leaning states in the union (New York, Massachusetts, Illinois) lost Congressional seats while the most conservative states (Texas, Utah, Idaho, Florida) made major gains. Only nine states don’t impose a state income tax and seven of those nine grew faster than the national average while the other two- South Dakota and New Hampshire- boasted the fastest growth in their respective regions. If liberalism works at all as a governing philosophy, then why are Americans uprooting their lives to flee its practical impact?
