California has set a target on everything related to whichever opinion the Conservatives might have.
A California writer came to conclusion hat f she ever moved to one of ‘Trump countries’ things would seem devastating, But as she, Leah Singer managed to realize, things were not as initially expected.
The author wrote an article on her experience in the state, analyzing for the Indianapolis Star that red states are related to a huge misconception that could not be further from the truth.
“I used to say I’d never move to a red state. And then I did. And it’s changed my life for the better,” Singer admitted.
Singer, a sworn Californian moved away recently but stated that everything the liberals presented Trump to be was an illusion created by the ever-persistent left to make people believe Trump was the villain.
“I was raised in California, where we like to believe diversity is applauded and opportunities abound,” she explained. “In many ways, California’s blue state bubble can be a very safe place to live if you subscribe to the popular liberal politics.”
Singer, as any other liberals would be, was feeling petrified to start her new chapter in a state related to a man she knew only as a monster.
“Over and over, I was questioned about why I would ever leave the Golden State for a ‘flyover’ red state. This phrase alone troubled me, and the implied perception that one flies over the Midwest just to get to their East or West Coast home,” she stated.
The writer manages to introduce the main deceptions that blue states might have about Trump and the way conservatives live and think.
“As I settled into life in the Midwest, I heard the same assumptive questions: ‘Did everyone you know vote for Donald Trump?’ ‘Are there African-American, Jewish, Asian, LGBTQ people in Indiana?’ ‘Do people make fun of you for listening to National Public Radio?’” Singer recalled.
It wasn’t long before she realized that every stereotype she ever heard about conservatives was anything but the truth.
“As I got to know my new Midwest home, I realize how living in a bubble and subscribing to the Middle America stereotypes is truly damaging to this country,” she explained.
“Never does one ask how the Indiana public schools provide many opportunities that have been cut from California’s public schools because of one budget crisis after another,” Singer continued.
“Never does one ask about the low cost of living that is allowing us to pay off the mountain of debt we accrued in California. And never does one ask about my fellow community members, who are running successful businesses, enriching the city’s arts and making a difference for the local environment.”
All this got her thinking that perhaps California was the one state that didn’t have as broad horizons as she initially believed.
“Southern California is diverse racially and religiously; it really is not with respect to class or working poor,” the writer revealed.
“This is especially the case in San Diego County, where it’s becoming more difficult for middle-class families to own a home or afford rent, with 41% of homeowners and 57% of renters spending 30% or more of income on housing, all while incomes stay stagnant, according to the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce.”
The liberal states are actually a luxury for Americans to take advantage of, with economics more descending than rising. It takes a certain status to be recognized as an individual in the liberal world- a nice car, lavishing lifestyle, you know, the whole nine yards. — different racial boxes may be checked but it’s all a bit boring.
As Singer was introduced to the Midwest, she began realizing nothing is what it seems and no opinion should matter until one figures things out for himself.
“(H)ow many of these people travel within their own country to get to know the ‘other?’ Why travel the globe, but not make an effort to get to know your Midwest neighbor?” the author asked.
“Living in Indiana, I now have an understanding of America that I did not before. I wish more people living outside the middle took the time to get to know the others living a few states away. I did, and I am a better person because of it,” she concluded.
Although unintentionally, she brought up a solid point. Liberals poison people with stories of acceptance and equality, while the population suffers severe racial and hierarchical distinction, unlike anything Singer’s seen in the Midwest.
Plus, the political venom is far stronger in liberal states than on the ‘other side.’ That led Singer to think there might be more to conservatives than she initially thought.
Maybe it is time for many more liberals to join in Singer on her exploration of conservatism – you never know what could be the off switch from liberals to them.
