California residents are fleeing to the country of Portugal and in many cases bringing problems that have made life more difficult for natives, according to a Los Angeles Times report.
A story titled “Welcome to Portugal, the new expat haven. Californians, please go home,” reports that the number of Americans living in Portugal has risen by 45% in the past year with many of those Americans moving from California in order to escape high housing costs and pandemic lockdowns in the United States.
It’s a funny problem that’s not so amusing for many in Portugal. Liberals from the left coast think going to Europe will solve their problems of living in a society that’s “so conservative.” Then they find out that many Europeans don’t appreciate the way California’s liberals express their opinion and live their lives.
It’s a free country, right? In some ways, yes, but it’s not America. Most Americans would be run home in a heartbeat after a few days in most other country. Flaws and all, the freedoms of our nation are what make the U.S. great, even if we continue to argue over attacks on those freedoms from those on the left.
The full report shows exactly why those in California should be more focused on improving freedoms in their own country rather than running away. It’s not better somewhere else. It will get better when progressives stop trying to ruin our country and focus on being the land of the free and the home of the brave. Watch the video for the full details now.
