    This is going to become a problem. We’re at 150 people per square mile already. Do we want 200 300 500? Look at whats happening to Tallahassee. More landscaped parks, construction, student housing, homeless, taxes, roads, traffic. Soon we’ll be yet another generic big liberal city.

    Sadly, Jon, you are correct.
    The illiberals are moving here en masse, and bringing their bad policies with them.
    From the link above:
    “The top states with net domestic migration loss were California (-203,414), New York (-180,649), Illinois (-104,986), New Jersey (-48,946), Massachusetts (-30,274)…”
