Loss of freedom elsewhere causing growth here

| August 2, 2022 1:00 AM

I believe it's safe to say we are all feeling the pressures of a massive migration into our area.

I’ve been able to have conversations with many of those newcomers as I am somebody who likes to chat with strangers and ask questions. What I’m hearing is that many are fleeing to freedom. Either political freedom or medical freedom, many just want the freedom of choice.

I feel happy that the beautiful state I call home can offer this, however, I want the states these folks are fleeing from to offer it to their own citizens. We are supposed to be living "in the land of the free," across all states, across the nation.

It doesn’t make sense that a few states bear the burden of massive migration due to loss of freedoms.
