It’s time for you to take back your country. Get out. Move around. Have a little courage. Rub your eyes and move. Enough of this stay at home nonsense. Get out there. Just stay away from the cities for now, because the great migration is yesterday’s news.
Anyone with a little money has already figured out how to escape the city. They’re in the Hamptons or are temporarily back home with mom and dad working remotely out of their old bedroom or in your den (sorry!). “Stay Home, Save Lives” is A Fraud of Epic Proportions.
The issue now is how far into your neck of the woods will chaos or government-created disasters spread? Are you seeing a net migration out of your neighborhood? Is it time for you to plan your escape? Remember, our homes are usually our most valuable asset or close to it. What is the trend with your schools, taxes, and businesses?
If I’m starting out in the world today, I’m doing everything in my power to get into the homeownership game. It doesn’t mean I have to live there. I see a ton of opportunities to buy a house with a yard for reasonable money in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine.
If you’re on the left coast you know there are opportunities away from the cities. That doesn’t mean you can’t get a job, rent an apartment in the city, and eventually work remotely. I think that’s a great way to start.
If you have the means to live and work in two states, do it. I like the Newport, RI/Jackson, NH combo if you’re a skier, as well as FL/WY or MT. You know where you’d love to live. Make it happen.
In times like these, there are ways for the strong to improve their situation with a little thought and creativity. While others bemoan, you get out and move around and see what your country has to offer you. You’ll like what you see.

P.P.S. You might even decide to take your business to a new location. Chris Enloe reports in The Blaze on what business owners in Minneapolis are planning after the riots there:
The city of Minneapolis is led by Democratic Mayor Jacob Frey. The city council is composed of 12 Democrats and one member of the Green Party.
And now, a longtime manufacturing business is immediately relocating away from Minneapolis after Democratic leaders failed to protect the city, instead allowing violence to overrun it in the wake of George Floyd’s tragic death.
Kris Wyrobek, owner of 7-Sigma Inc., which produces “high-performance polymer and metal components and assemblies,” told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he is relocating his business after Minneapolis officials allowed his factory to be destroyed in the riots.
“They don’t care about my business,” Wyrobek said. “They didn’t protect our people. We were all on our own.”
