And they wouldn't have it any other way.

As I've said - the bluer Texas and Georgia get, the more their Wealth Gap AND segregation will increase.

"SEATTLE — America’s most liberal city stands at an uneasy crossroads."

"For decades, Seattle has been the vanguard of the nation’s progressive movement. It was the first major city to adopt a $15 per hour minimum wage, to allow gig economy workers to affiliate with a union and to impose, albeit briefly, a per-employee tax on major corporations."

"Along the way, it has experienced the explosive growth of a mammoth tech industry that has changed the face of a racially and economically diverse population. Neighborhoods once defined by commingling populations of immigrants and blue-collar families now teem with new condos, local restaurants have been replaced by high-end pot shops and encampments filled with those who can no longer afford to live in their city now line the its two major freeways."

Progressives want Economic Equality, about as much as Donald Trump and Jerry Falwell practice morality in their own lives.

It's an Inconvenient Truth.
