Invasion from the South(?)
« on: November 17, 2003, 04:24:20 pm »

My wife and I have been seriously considering becoming members of the FSP and moving to New Hampshire. I wonder though, what will be/can be done about Socialists from Massachusetts moving northward and cancelling out your effects?

Respectfully,

Fitz

 I understand that most of the Massachusetts people who have moved to NH are tax refugees, not socialists.

I've heard that the better economy brings them northward.

(I don't know if you are from around this area, but Mass is infamous for it's left-wing politics..Kennedy worship, etc.)

I'm in CT.

There is no major movement as there is with the FSP.  They would be unwise to start one as they would experience less opposition in another state (like Massachussetts).

I object to being lumped in with the likes of a Kennedy. Though granted, it seems that the southern most part of the state is influenced by those fleeing the costs of living on Newburry Street while maintaining their same views, but I don't think that there's that big of a threat of too many moving north. Seems they like Connecticut and New York more.

Heh. You have to admit though, it was definately a good mirror to American culture.

So, are you all saying that it's not happening or you don't know? I'm quite serious. When driving through a few weeks ago, I couldn't help but notice having very different experiences with Mass folks and NH folks (holding open doors, "excuse me"s, etc.) Maybe I was just unlucky and formed an opinion based on that? Is it as simple as having to go farther northward?
I'm asking because I'm wondering what region to be looking at. The farther south, the better for my business and visiting the people I know here, but if the caliber of people in the far south is shifting, I would like to know.

Thanks all.

I'm, unfortunately, in Hartford.
Isn't the high tech in S. NH an extension of the high tech in N. MA?
The only advantage for MA people to move north would be 1) a more pleasant place to live. 2) Less Taxes!
I would expect the socialists to stay in socialist MA.

There is an influx of Massachusetts liberalism in NH, especially in the Seacoast and Cheshire county regions.  This is not to say that it is a concerted or otherwise effective migration.  The key to FSP success is that we are an intentional effort, not an accidental case of tax refugees crossing the border.

I agree "better free state than bay state" (my apologies to free states from MA), though I would argue that the Bay State refugees are nothing to worry about.  If anything they're a constituency open to a dialogue about taxation, considering their background.

Truthfully the fear of leftist Massachusetts residents moving north in NH is a reasonable concern.

Here in Nevada we're getting overrun by leftists from California who push their socialist agenda and right-wingers from Utah who push their morals on us. Both forces are definetely changing the state for the worse and I'm afraid, as well, that something similiar could happen in NH.

Thankfully it seems the legislative districts with the most Massachusetts refugees have the best pro-freedom voting record (I got this from something JMaynard, a NH resident, said a while back.)

Thankfully I think once we start pushing change that government loving Mass. residents will have no desire to move north and spoil our Libertarian wine....
