How-To Restore Democracy in America with Operation #BlueSpatula
California has about Five (5) million more Democratic voters than necessary to win against Republicans in a presidential race. New York has about Two (2) million extra Democratic voters. Look at the charts in the link below to see how easily Biden beat Trump in these two states in 2020:
With the addition of relatively small numbers of Blue voters, many states could be flipped from Red to Blue, affecting Congressional and Senate delegations, Electoral College balances and control of the Senate:
South Dakota 125,000
North Dakota 125,000
TOTAL : 5.27 million relocated voters.
Clearly there are enough extra voters in California alone to achieve the objectives, but how crazy is it to propose moving over Five million people (or even just 500,000 to flip the “low-hanging fruit” in the most sparsely populated four states)?
As I’m writing this column/update on June 24, 2021, the “Rent-pocalypse” is less than one week away — the day when approximately 28 million Americans will suddenly be held liable for unpaid rent during the pandemic and made to face the very real threat of eviction. Where will they go?
Many of these evictions will occur in relatively high rent areas like California. For many, it may make sense to hit the road, live our of RVs (as in the movie “Nomadland”) or move into relatively low-rent apartments such as North Dakota’s. They may be able to buy, with help from friends, family or GoFundMe to buy housing in these more remote locations.
Obviously, the logistical challenges are massive, but so are the numbers of people affected and the potential for positive change in our country.
Let’s talk more about this strategy, please.
