So you contributed to the situation.

Money was more important to you than helping stop this phenomenon.

No doubt. I will likely move my home base to Chatt. Once it gets too expensive and crowded, if it does, then I repeat the process. Are these not normal migration patterns for these modern times?

Nashville is turning into an even bigger liberal shite hole


I've lived in some shite holes. Nashville is far from it. I'm admittedly biased because I grew up in Nashville, but I find it a pretty awesome place to live.

It'll be purple in the near future. It has the potential to be the next VA, which has completed the red to blue switch. But it comes down to policy. It could go blue in 2022 because of the recent abortion law, which is very unpopular in the suburbs. It's why republicans haven't really been celebrating it after 40 years of fighting Roe v Wade.


They e been saying this since the 70s, it’s not purple even. Several decades from now it may go purple. As far as abortion that’s murder and for another thread, most TX people understand it’s not about the woman’s body, if it was, abortion would kill her, it’s about the baby.

Nah, people are being priced out of more cities to the point of affecting quality of life.

Its great if youre wealthy. Not so much if you aren't.

s the incentive to the homeowner to accepting an competing offer from some poor local who is scraping the money together and needs to sell their house to fund the purchase?


The incentive would be if they cared enough about keeping TN solid red. Money is obviously more important to them than political considerations.

That being the case the OP and everyone should stop worrying about it. Nothing any of us can do but choose go spend what precious time we have in life focusing on things we can control.

Saw an article the other day how the western slope is booming and Grand Junction is going to greatly benefit from job creation and economic growth.

I thought about going that way. Much cheaper housing, area is on the rise as you mentioned, and you get to approach the resorts from the western side for ski season with far less traffic

This has to be one of the biggest myths going around right now. 34% of Californians voted for Trump, that's over 6 million people. If people are leaving California due to it being too liberal they are likely republicans.

this. I know half a dozen families that have left California for Florida, Texas, Tenn. and every one of them have been Trump supporters.


It’s the MuH bOoGyMaN. These people don’t want to accept that some of the liberal voters are homegrown

amazon and oracle are turning this area into another shitty austin. i never understand why these people leave their 'utopia' just to go to another nice area and ruin it by doing the same things that caused them to flee their previous home.


Because they believe it wasn't utopian enough. If only everyone listed to them... CA would not be terrible.

In other words... CA doesn't suck now because of their ideas... it sucks now because CA doesn't have enough of their ideas... they need more of those ideas to not suck...

Money will ALWAYS be more important than political considerations. I have approximately 80ish years on this earth, and I am for damn sure not going to consider staying in a certain environment because the local sheriff is 'conservative'.

Every state is going to be blue now that the Dems have been giving SC approval to run their system.

I predict the D candidate in 2024 "receives" over 100 M votes.

yep. if you don't already own here, you're not buying a house on a 'normal' income. that ship has sailed. you need the increasing equity in your existing home to play.

1 mil seems to be the entry price for the popular areas that were 400-500k a year ago.

People use phrases like “half a dozen” to make it sound larger than it is.

You know 6 families.

6

Why not just say “6”? It is actually faster than typing out “half a dozen”.

It is the same thing with saying things like “quarter of a million”, rather than “250,000”.

I don't see Tennessee turning blue in 3-5 years. It's not even close right now. It won't matter though if the Dems flip Texas. Then you'll have a Uniparty in DC. Trump won Texas by around 5%. That used to be 15+% for Republicans.

re: I fear all is lost in middle TN
One of the main reasons I didn’t accept a pay cut to move to Nashville. You can’t pay me less and charge me more for housing and living expenses. I don’t care how cool your city is. That’s just dumb. Particularly when, frankly, it’s not that cool.

I also think a lot of usually red voters didn’t vote for Trump this past election. But that’s a matter for the Poli Board.

So if TN goes blue, they’ll need to move to the Pac12, just saying.
