Mairead McArdle’s article highlights what most people figured out long ago. People figured out that Democrat-run cities and states are hell-holes that are best escaped from. Until cities like Seattle, Portland, Philadelphia and Minneapolis and states like Minnesota, New York, Oregon and Washington are allowed to disintegrate as a result of their progressive policies, they can’t be fixed. They’re simply impossible to fix.

McArdle opened her article by writing “Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers have fled New York City since the coronavirus pandemic began in the spring, new data from the U.S. Post Office shows. A total of 295,103 city residents requested a change of address between March 1 and October 31, according to U.S. Postal Service data obtained by the New York Post under a Freedom of Information Act request.”

People are leaving New York like they’re selling toxic waste door-to-door. High taxes, higher crime rates and businesses shutting down are key contributors to this exodus. Another contributor is Gov. Cuomo’s lockdown mentality. Apparently, Gov. Cuomo’s side job is killing geese that lay golden eggs.

However, the actual number of New Yorkers who escaped the city this year is much higher than that since a single address change could represent an entire household, and the data from the Post Office does not include the many New Yorkers who have fled without officially changing their address.

This is the classic vicious cycle. Here’s why it’s happening:

New York once was a beautiful metropolis. It isn’t anymore. The chief explanation for the exodus is that NYC isn’t safe. Another explanation is that businesses are getting out of New York because NY’s taxes are too high. There isn’t an incentive to stick around.
