Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It is simply the culmination of the GOP adopting the Southern Strategy. We will continue to fight the Civil War until we get rid of the Senate.

Why would the GOP want to get rid of the Senate when they have a natural advantage in winning it with so many small rural conservative states returning two GOP senators. WAPO has 30% of the population controlling two thirds of the Senate by 20140.

Then the logical strategy is -as some people have been saying- to "Move to the red states". Coastal blue states are getting ever more expensive to live in. More inland there is more space and they are more 'liberal' with their zoning. People are pushed further inside by finances. E.g. California refugees have already contributed to turning Arizona blue/purple. And so on with Colorado etc. NIMBYs are gonna save America!? Who would have thought?

Problem is when you go to check out the red states you see how nasty they are. Who wants to live in fancy new house in a rural town full of elderly racists in trailer houses when you can rent a one room apartment in San Francisco and live in San Francisco? Even college towns in the midwest are pretty grim.
