That is true. They usually move to the big cities as well, Charlotte, Raleigh, Myrtle Beach, Orlando, Atlanta, Las Vegas,etc. You can see it in the last 2 national elections where Va, NC, Co, and one of two others have gone blue.The problem is New Yorkers move out of NY and then proceed to change the towns and cities their in to operate the way NY does politically, socially and economically. Why move in the first place stop spreading the poison.
That's not a joke to southerners, that's the way they view it.That reminds me of this Joke: "what's the difference is between a Yankee and a Damn Yankee. A Yankee is a Northerner that goes down south to visit. A Damn Yankee is a Northerner goes down south and won't go back."
