there are few red states that corporations would leave blue states for.
Texas is indeed one of them.
For many of these southern states, there is flight of the educated and successful from your states to the blue states. Many refer to it as brain drain.
As it stands now, there is no and has been no impediment of companies moving out of the blue states to the red states. My guess is many of these blue states have deals with many of the companies there.
So as much as you would like to see it happen, I doubt that if the red states moved out there would be a flocking of businesses to the red states.
Fact is what would happen is the brain drain would get worse. The rich and the educated would even flock more out of the red states and the poor in your states are incapable of moving out.
