Yes, please leave.
The population of Austin has doubled in the last twenty years and they've barely built any new roads.

We will take all the Dem voters you want to send please.  Keep the other idiots in Texas.

A nice chuck of liberal Austinites moving to Ohio would do more electoral good than them staying in TX.

I know Austin and Columbus are both large college towns and state capitals, but the similarities end there

No, they said Ohio, not Columbus. Moving anywhere else in the state is essentially a death sentence for reliable IT services. Between outages and plain old lack of coverage, you're better off staying in Austin. And that's before we get to the farking cold here.

I've lived in both. Omitting both of those factors you lose much of what gives the places their cultural and economic status. I found them to be pretty comparable, YMMV.

I've seen those signs in Los Angeles too, along the 405 near the 10 interchange. I always chuckle at it, no one who doesn't have to moves from LA to Ohio.

No everybody stay out of Ohio. It's stupid and weird here and backwards as hell but I like my cheap cost of living. Go stay someplace warm or something. I was at least born here so I'm used to it.

Going to be honest here, Ohio is a lost cause, I live here but it's a lost cause. You are better off sending the crazies and trying to make Texas purple than cling to keeping Ohio purple. That ship has sailed.

Yeah no thanks, my parents are from Ohio and it was always nice to visit as a kid now the relatives have become Trump humping aholes that threatened to kill me last time I saw them.

Drivers as far-flung as Los Angeles and New York City have been bombarded by towering red signs that seem to take aim at any region that isn't a landlocked state wedged between Pennsylvania and Indiana

You guys do know the Great Lakes exist, right?

That said, why would anyone ever move from Seattle to Ohio?

That cost of living is not enough to make anyone I know move to Ohio.  It's shiathole prices for a damn reason.

Brother moved from long beach to Oklahoma 2 years ago. He went from a 650sf apartment to a brand new house that has a 750sf garage.

I left LA 20 years ago and have no regrets about it.

My wife's BFF moved to Cleveland from Maui. She hates the job, but they like the city.

Suburbs of Cleveland are nice, I grew up out in the country about 45 minutes away from downtown.  My parents are still there so I visit a few times a year. Lived in Columbus for a few years, brother is still there. Prefer Cleveland.  I like the grit.

Cleveland is a nice city. My issue is the weather. There is very little sunshine and the cold just wraps around you like a wet blanket. I used to live in Maine and inbound take negative ten in maine over 15 degrees in Cleveland.

Someone in Somerville NJ posted a picture on Reddit of a billboard nearby extolling the virtues of living in Ohio over Boston. It seems like the billboard company mistook Somerville NJ (middle class suburb 30 miles from NYC) for Somerville MA (working class suburb just outside Boston, slowly gentrifying). I guess these billboard companies are national and just post whatever someone in corporate HQ tells them to post?

I actually once moved from Somerville (MA) to Columbus. The company offered me a good bit more money than I was making in Boston to move to Columbus so it made sense. I'm from outside Columbus and had friends and family there which helped.

I mean, I left again a few years later because Ohio but I did make that move.

What does that have to do with the price of tea?  Just because lots of people live in a place doesn't mean it's the nicest place.  Many factors go into that decision.  For example, Florida is the 3rd most populous state.  Are you telling me that Florida is one of the the best places to live in the country?

Arguably? Yeah. Florida is great.

Low taxes. Nice weather. Affordable cost of living. Beaches within a short drive of just about anywhere.

I don't think anyone could argue that Florida isn't a nice place to live except if they are an elitist with a paternalistic chip on their shoulder decrying how they think people *should* live.

You can label me whatever you feel like, but if you think you're doing our country any favors by dividing the left, you're just playing right into the GOP and Russias hands.

Hint: I'm on the left and I'm sure we agree on much more than we disagree, but it still doesn't change the fact that people saying they were the recipient of a benefit large enough to buy a home outright in most of this country are, by definition, elitist.
