If you live in a red state now is the time to get out. The disparities are already there, but they will only get worse. I've lived in both, and I'm on my way back to the high tax blue state. Sometimes paying taxes is OK. I could write a book on my time here in Trump's America, and it would surprise a lot of people. It hasn't been bad at all. However, healthcare and education are very important to me, and Kentucky is lacking in both areas. It's only going to get worse.
