Vermont is not desolate, it's not densely populated. Big difference. Depressing? I only know of depressed people. South East DC is depressing too then.
Vermont unpopular?
First time I hear that. I know a huge amount of people who'd move to Vermont if they knew how to make a living there.
Me first

Which makes it a "go to" destination

Vermont is a gem. Not for everyone, thankfully, but for those that appreciate its independence and rural treasures it is a true "find".

Vermont didn't have liberal politics until liberal urbanites invaded the state.

Well, there are a lot of other states you'll be much happier in. Please enjoy living in one of them.

When the Interstate opened up Vermont, the immigrants who flooded in were generally looking for a back-to-the-land, organic-community experience and met a lot of old-timers who enjoyed their attitude, helped them get rooted and liked the changes.

People here like to know that everybody's kids today are getting a better education than they themselves got. We know that we all at one time or another in our life have been or will be sick, ignorant, stupid, elderly and dependent on others for a hand up, and that is why we expect to step up and serve for those who today are like what we once were or will be.

Political "dark money" is fertilizing a new mentality which just might bring the state around to your set of mind.

Nope. Not true. The changes took so long to take place most didn't see them coming. There isn't much to like about the cost of real estate skyrocketing as rich people take over, jobs leaving, taxes skyrocketing, and a bunch of nanny staters taking over government. There was in fact just a letter to the editor in the Rutland Herald that essentially compared us to a bunch of school children who need to have our sodas taxed to control us.

The gun control activists spent more than any other lobbyists last year, all money from out of state billionaire Bloomberg. On that note one NEK senator suggested these (liberal) people should move back to where they came from. And I agree with him.

Maybe the state motto really is,

"Keep Vermont beautiful. Leave."
