The exodus from Gavin Newsom's California continues as more people move to Idaho. Idahoans, known for their warm and welcoming nature, are embracing newcomers while upholding traditional American values. Their love for the country is evident, and they are not in favor of big-government liberals trying to take control of their lives.

If you're moving from California to Idaho and you're a liberal, you'll find a place in Boise. Idaho's capital city, home to a progressive mayor and her policies, is a melting pot of political views. While Democrats have a small minority in the Idaho House and Senate, primarily, Republicans run Idaho cities. Idaho's political landscape, with its dominant Republican Party, is a diverse one.

The traffic in Idaho's major cities can't rival the frustration of Los Angeles, San Fransico, San Diego, or other California cities. Traffic in the Treasure Valley continues to increase frustrating many Idahoans.

Idahoans do not like dope smokers, flag burners, or friends of Gavin Newsom. Unlike California liberals, most folks in the Gem State love the police and continue to support them. There is no defund the police movement here.
