Leftists are willfully ignorant of facts, history. To them everything is emotion, what makes them feel good.
Leftist flee New York Taxes, but then vote for leftists in the low tax state they move to, and soon it becomes a basket case like the state they fled.
They tell themselves “they just didn’t know how to implement leftist policy correctly, this state will get it right.”
Trump addressed that stupidity at a UN speech, he observed Venezuela was a basket case, not because the implemented socialism incorrectly, but because they implemented it correctly.
Fails every time everywhere its tried, yet they keep deceiving themselves “this time it will work.”
