I'm planning on staying in Chicago?

Urban areas are where the opportunity is. Deserted rural areas are not.

Or, put another way: Lots of people in one place presents more opportunity than very few people in the middle of nowhere.

This should surprise approximately 0 people. It is also a trend that will not change in the lifetime of anyone on this board.

This has certainly happened to me, and I would be surprised if it hasn't happened at least once to most people. Several years ago I walked into my office and was informed that, if I wanted to keep my job, I would be doing it from Sao Paolo.

I moved because, you know, I had bills to pay.

We might need to get this message out to the "rural white voter" stated to be the (underemployed) supporter of Trump. Yes, you will need to move. This very board exists because people have to move. My neighbors had to move from another continent. It is hardly a "liberal" thing.

Which is why the Durham area is on our radar.
Not necessarily. You just have to know where to look.

Move here to Pittsburgh. It's still relatively cheap, and you can help flip Pennsylvania back to blue in four years.

Many people and businesses do move to red states due to politics.

Do you seriously think that every single criminal in this country is of the exact same ideological mindset and vote for the same candidates? You really can't be this naive, especially when there are several documented instances of Trump supporters assaulting protestors at Trump rallies.

i never said that but it is true most of the violence in America today is done by liberal activists and jihadists.

liberal activists were busted for what is known as bird dogging, trying to incite violence at Trump rallies. Democratic officials were busted on video admitting that they do this.
