The once-beautiful, demorat-run city of Seattle has turned into a nightmare.
You’ve got a serious homeless problem. Even a BILLION taxpayer dollars isn’t enough to solve that problem.
You’ve got a serious problem with repeat criminal offenders. Due to the progressive “criminal justice reform” agenda, there are many, many repeat offenders who are never properly punished.
Then you’ve got ANTIFA/BLM/demorat thugs taking over the city streets and rioting, looting and burning the city down. And the elected politicians cave to their demands.
So why would any reasonable, taxpaying-citizen want to remain in this liberal utopia? It appears that many residents have had enough and are heading out.
KOMO News reports that more Seattle-area residents selling their homes and fleeing the city. This is based on a Redfin report which states that the number of home sellers looking to leave the Seattle metro area has jumped to 13.7%, compared with 11.2% at the same time last year.
Also notable? The net outflow of homeowners from Seattle has soared from 363 in the second quarter of last year to 6,007 in the second quarter of this year – a jump of more than 1,500%.
Redfin claims that the reasons people are leaving are because of the Wuhan virus, to move closer to family, flexible remote work which means people don’t “have to live in this area,” and low mortgage rates.
Gee, ‘ya think the crazy violence and lack of law and order might have something to do with it?
