I live in Alabama and I can't stand it anymore. [View all]

As a white male progressive, I am going absolutely bonkers in this place. Would you believe that almost all of our state representatives were uncontested Republicans on the ballot?! I just need to move to a state like California, or possibly in New England (though probably not due to the weather). The main thing holding me back is the fact that I have all my "roots" here...all my family, all my support structure, friends, etc. There are plenty of normal people here like you would find in any decent place, but even people who I knew back in the day who you'd assume would be rational players went off the deep in and are constantly filling my Facebook up full of Fox news rants!
