    There will be a great gnashing of Teeth in the Blue Wall as the tax base shrinks and companies head for the state line. There will be some replacement as felonious illegal immigrants run to the sanctuaries. In businesses where being rich is fairly common:

    Banking;

    Securities;

    Commodities;

    High Tech;

    Living inside the Blue Wall will become suicidal quickly. But with wages, pensions and home values going down people who think of themselves as middle class in Blue states will be hit hard, particularly among those who work in state and local government. In low tax states the exact opposite will happen but with lower amplitude. Vegas, Nashville, Austin, New Orleans and similar party towns outside the Blue Wall will do especially well. So pensioners who have already moved out of the blue wall will be the only major loser in the Red Edge.

    What did I miss?

    Now, maybe the blue states/cities will start to hold their own reps responsible for the mess they are in. Either that or move out in droves.

    I though all those Blue Wall phonies were going to leave the country if Trump got elected?

    Why didn't they?

    Don't know. I could speculate but a lot of Chinese, Mexicans and Indians will take a huge hit. Since the Triads and Indian equivalents have made MS-13 look like the Odd Fellows in the past I expect the Left Coast will deSnowflake in a couple of years, a couple of very rough years.

    9 U.S. states with the highest income inequality

    While I am an admirer William, I think you are jumping the gun. In all these examples the average of the bottom 99 is less than 60,000. So a lot of people are getting tax cuts. All big business is repatriating trillions and the corporate tax rate is going down. I mean online shopping is more of a,threat than this tax bill.

    One thing for sure, it will be hard to keep property taxes high in blue states. Gee guys, what you going to cut?

    You are mistaking my point. In NY where my wife is from, near the Canadian border the poverty is much worse than in MS and AL because prices are so high, particularly for heating in the 6-9 months with snow on the ground and a massive hypothermia threat. This is not a joke, high four/low five figure heating bills are common even in relatively warm years. My in-laws had multiple heating systems so they would not freeze to death in case one broke down. RI and MA are both considerably better and still shockingly bad, Camp Hill AL and Biloxi MS looked and felt better than either of them.

    Lets run down a cause and effect here.

    Which came first in America, unregulated capitalism or the socialist threat?

    As in attempting socialism destroyed the first English colony in North America and nearly destroyed the next three or four?

    No, in 1800 were there more or fewer "socialist" provisions or regulations or taxes than in 1900 and why?
