Blue Model Goes Belly-Up
The Very Model of a Blue Model State

    The “blue model” has to be forced to the wall first before anything changes. I mean: total collapse, bankruptcy, etc. Like NYC in 1975. Even then, it took another four years before Koch was elected.

      And then the voters forgot where the blue model invariably leads and we got DeBlassio. Back to 1975!

        Curious how that happens. This time it’s far more due to indifference and complacency. Just look at the voter turnout numbers. New Yorkers seem to have not understood what was at stake.

    There is still a significant percentage of the population that doesn’t grasp the negative cause and effect that blue state policies have. It’s easier to say, “We are for a living wage,” than to spend 5 minutes explaining the carnage caused by minimum wage. Often times when you explain it, you will get a reply along the lines of, “Well, businesses are just greedy and only care about profits, not people. Someone has to hold them accountable.” While you are having this argument, another 100 jobs move to Texas.

      Or the jobs just don’t happen, at all.
