But apparently there are about 43 states better suited for my family.

Y’know, I was born here and my fathers side of the family has been here since before the civil war (we fought for the union ftw!) and I want the world to know that you can be a Tennessean and not be a bigot or right wing nutjob. I have friends who tell me the reason I am so often frustrated is that I’m a blue person living in a red state. I don’t see why I should have to leave the state I love because of them. I think, until San Francisco becomes feasible, that I will stay and fight the good fight.

Think of yourselves as liberal missionaries, trying to spread enlightment and compassion to the “savages”, lol.

Oddly enough, I just moved here from San Francisco!

While I think it is in my blood to live in Tennessee (generation after generation all in East Tennessee), I am not always happy about the politics that go down here. That’s exactly why my State needs me to stay. I will be the balance in the far right world (and far left for that matter).
