I’ve heard some people say that they want to leave Virginia (and other affected states) ever since the madess of the ultrasound bill and personhood bill.
I think your disgust and frustration is definitely warranted, but I have to ask: what will moving solve? It’s the same thing as closing your eyes and avoiding an issue.
If you don’t agree with something, you can turn your head, or you can fight against it.
Want to voice your disapproval? Then do it. Call senators, governors, participate in protests, let your voice be heard. But bailing won’t solve anything.
Problems have a way of following people, anyway.
Besides, I feel like that’s only adding insult to injury. It’s like telling everyone else that shares your views, “Yeah, this really sucks, but you’re on your own now. Sayonara!”
Whatever’s going to happen is going to happen. We may not want it, but we can live with it…though we don’t have to do so silently.
So, suck it up, people. Put on your battle gear, or sure, get the hell out.
Let’s see what you’re really made of.
