Trump would be wise to move his businesses.  Let NY/NJ continue to sink.

NY village 'losing its soul' as nation's oldest gun manufacturer flees blue state for Georgia

The Remington gun factory nestled in New York’s Mohawk Valley is ready to shutter its doors and move to Georgia after more than 200 years in the Empire State.

"Two hundred and eight years of history. Gone, gone," Ilion, New York, Mayor John P. Stephens told the New York Times. "Ilion is Remington. Remington is Ilion."

Remington is the nation’s oldest gun manufacturer and told union officials late last year that company chiefs at RemArms, the current version of Remington Arms, made the decision to end its New York manufacturing come March. The remaining operations located in Ilion will move to Georgia, where company leaders say the firearms industry is supported and welcomed.

Residents of the New York village, which is located roughly 230 miles northwest of New York City, are bracing for the manufacturer to officially move, which some say will take part of the town’s identity with it.....................

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Remington flees to a free state
By Mike McDaniel

The recent judgement for fraud against Donald Trump in a New York City Court, in a dollar amount higher than the GNP of some countries despite no one being defrauded, has revealed something many Americans didn’t know: New York State is driving out its most productive, tax-producing citizens and businesses. What happens to a state that, for leftist political reasons, purposely destroys its tax base? What happens to that self-defunding state when its federal Democrat/socialist/communist (D/s/c/) allies open the borders and send tens, even hundreds, of thousands of illegal immigrants to take advantage of the state’s self-imposed sanctuary?  New York is finding out, and isn’t much liking it.

New England, since before the founding of the republic, was American’s primary gun-producing region.  No longer:

Remington made THE WRONG choice.

Georgia isn't going to be "a free state" all that much longer, as it transitions from reddish-purple back to blue.

Atlanta is going to become "the black capital" of the country (while it still remains "a country" for now).

They should have chosen West Virginia or Kentucky or Tennessee instead.
Goin' to Georgia may come back to bite them in a few years.
