COVID-19 Tyranny Drives Migration to South Dakota

As American liberty contracts, those who want to live free flock to the last vestigial pockets of resistance — like South Dakota:

South Dakota GOP Governor Kristi Noem’s rejection of instituting draconian “lockdowns” because of the coronavirus seems to be bearing fruit. In a survey conducted by United Van Lines in January that tracked customers’ 2020 state-to-state migration patterns, South Dakota ranked fourth in the nation, virtually tied for second behind the state of Idaho. …

Lori Barnett, owner and broker at VIP Properties’ Rapid City office, stated, “We had a strong market to start the 2020 year. However, after COVID-19 hit and cities and states across the country began to implement massive shutdowns, people in those areas started looking to less restrictive states. Gov. Kristi Noem has certainly taken the laissez faire approach in dealing with COVID-19, which has definitely drawn attention to our state and our area in particular. People tend to be searching for a place to have more autonomy, be less populated, great outdoor recreation, and not having a state income tax is definitely a plus.”

Other states with a large influx according to United Van Lines are Idaho, South Carolina, Oregon, and Arizona. Of these, only Oregon is controlled by Democrats.

In a significant indication that people are fleeing the lockdowns implemented in leading Democrat-run states, New Jersey was atop the rankings of locations people fled from, at 70%, followed by New York (67%), Illinois (67%), Connecticut (63%) and California (59%).

All of those declining states are controlled by left-wing authoritarians.

Unfortunately, some of the migrants will be slow learners who bring their Democrat voting habits with them. Still more unfortunately, authoritarian Democrats are consolidating power at the federal level.

The freedom pitch resonates.
