Amazing how the gang members prefer ultra ultra Democratic Denver and avoid Republican Trump-loving Cheyenne.

Ultra-liberal, Democratic and Biden loving city of Albuquerque has had 112 homicides so far this year and has similar population to Wyoming which had a total of 9 homicides.

Biden-worshipping Pueblo, Colorado just over 100,000 people just reported their 29th homicide of the year while Wyoming has a homicide rate of 1 per 100,000 people.

Wow, Colorado has had 31 times more homicides than Wyoming.

New Mexico has had 25 times more homicides yet New Mexico is not even 4 times the population.

I imagine that the fact that almost nobody lives in Wyoming (and their tendency to be more self sufficient and neighborly to themselves) probably has something to do with it, not local politics. Poverty also plays a pretty big role in crimes like homicides and neither Pueblo nor ABQ are particularly wealthy...

This is like comparing apples to oranges. The people in Wyoming love America and have money. A far cry from the people they are being compared to in democrat ran cesspools in other states.

Wyoming, a state with a lower population than Washington DC has a low homicide total? Huh. I blame math.

Yet, who wants to move to Wyoming? Anybody? No? I thought so. Probably a few more people would rather move to Oklahoma or even Kansas.

I certainly did two years ago. Left Colorado for Oklahoma and haven't looked back (though politics didn't play a part in it, just the cost of living, things getting more crowded, and the need to escape some personal demons certainly played a role in it). For the most part, the only people who want to move to Wyoming are people who are naturally more reclusive and distrustful of government. Comparing the culture of Wyoming to the cultures of Colorado or New Mexico is like comparing a horse to a pine tree. It doesn't really work.

Or maybe they are people with money who enjoy owning land and having a little space between themselves and their neighbors. I know it's hard for a leftist to believe, but not everyone loves living on top of each other in a 400 sq ft apartment for $2000/mo in some urban area with a Starbucks every 3 blocks.

Do you trust the government?

And not everyone wants to live in isolation. To each their own.
