I'm sorry, CO.  It was a dream of mine that I might live there one day, but it seems like California locusts ruined your state like New York cockroaches ruined mine.

Condolences.

They are a plague upon the land.  Worst part is they're so effing snotty and insufferable about it (hint--peruse the r/colorado and r/coloradosprings subreddits).

I posted a map from 2017 in another arfcom thread,showing the #1 source of immigrants to each state, I'll repeat it here:

It's only gotten worse in the meantime.  They are indeed a plague of locusts upon all the western states.

I saw your previous post and I had no idea how many New Yorkers had infiltrated my state, soooo...thank you for the map?

I really did want to move to CO when I was younger.
It looks beautiful.

Then move here.  Are you going to let progressives dictate how you live your life?

I say that not as a criticism, but as an encouragement.  I move here from TX in 2017, and don’t ever want to leave. I love so much about this state, some of the residents aside. I’m not going to allow progressives to push me out of a life I want to live.

I hold John Denver responsible for encouraging the mass migration to this state by singing about that Colorado Rocky Mountain High.  Then, in the Same. Freakin'. Song.  he complains about "more people, more scars upon the land."  Screw him and his life in Starwood.  He did this state no favors by promoting his Colorado hippie lifestyle.

I can't be mad at this.  Transplants can ruin where they move to, and a lot of East coasters are douchebags.  I just always thought CO was one place where people were left alone to live in peace.

Oh, there's plenty of them too.  I watched a vehicle with NY plates, towing a UHaul trailer, doing 10 mph in the left hand lane up a busy 55 mph six lane road the other day.

Who says he’s a douchebag? Perhaps he’s just the kind of person we need to move here.

True, there are good areas in Northern Colorado, and the Western Slope is cool.  I should have said Denver/Boulder/Fort Collins.

It was my dream for 10 years too and when I got here I found the CA colonizers arrived before me.

Look to Utah or Idaho, the locals there will prove more resistant to the communist influx.

I can easily believe it, but not the Texans you'd really want from a rights standpoint.  I'm sure quite a few of them are from El Paso for example.

I'll admit, I'm one of those East Coast transplants - from NJ of all places! - that moved here in '93 to escape their Assault Weapon Ban and all of the other absurd rules that the sheeple of that communist state accept and follow (how about no ball playing on the beach?).  I vote 100% conservative, HATE what has happened to this once-wonderful state over the last 25 years but would be a hypocrite to blame all "transplants", as I am one of them.  I have exercised my right to not only bear "arms", but also quite a bit of NFA-registered things that convert $$$ to noise quickly and efficiently.  While I'm not a native, and don't pose as one, I do believe that I reflect the values of this state as they were originally intended - NOT as they have become.  I''m embarrassed that we have turned into a blue state and have began looking elsewhere to hang my hat - but, where?  Texas is headed in the same direction, and Wyoming is quickly filling with transplants that want to change things for the worse.  I feel like I'm back in New Jersey 30 years ago looking for an alternative, but those alternatives aren't as clear-cut as they once were.  God Bless.

OP, don't blame you.

Moved here (Colorado Springs) ten years ago originally from Missouri but with a three year stay in Washington State first. I have wanted to live near mountains since I was a kid. WA was awful ( wife is a conservative community college teacher and found the environment intolerable). Native Coloradans are great people, but unfortunately along the front range they seem to be  becoming a minority to all the Cali types. And RINO politicians beholden to the real estate industry are encouraging young liberals to move here (see CoS mayors). Find and watch the old TV miniseries 'Centennial' about Colorado, says a lot. ElPaso County Colorado--- "the most coservative county in the nation"-- will go liberal by 2028.

When wife retires, if I am still kicking (73 now) we will move to her home country in NE Alabama. I love the mountains but will have to settle for hills and people who still have a modicum of good sense.

Maybe I should start another thread, but here's another reason that this state (and the country) is going to shit - govt. schools.

JeffCo is one of the poster children.  I apologize for linking to CPR.    Even if you're TLDR, scroll down to the picture of one of the "educators."  If that's not enough for you to pull your kids out of her school, then you need help and are a child abuser.
