Y'all got a real witch (swap a letter) for a governor. Faked kidnap attempts by the fibbies. A senator, Stabenow, telling the poors to just buy a tesla. Now arresting the opposition, again by the fibbies.

WTH, I thought y'all yoopers were better than that.

Warrior, look at the Michigan map-Detroit,Flint ,Saginaw, Lansing, Grand Rapids,ETC. Too many democrat strongholds. Yoopers are a drop in the bucket.

Well I knew that but looking in from the outside it looks pretty scary for y'all. Like maybe you got some type police state starting up.

Warrior: If you look at the 2020 election results you would find that only 1 county (Marquette County) in the U>P voted demo, all other voted Rep.

Just for your information only people born and raised in the UP are called Yoopers, others born below the bridge are called Trolls or flatlanders.

We have a demographics problem here. 85% of our population lives in either the greater Detroit area, or , as stated above, in cities like Flint, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Battle Creek, etc. The rest of us are outnumbered by townies. My county is a perfect example of the same deal. The township I live in has well over 90% of it's population living over along the immediate shore of Houghton Lake. Us "outlying" folks that live in the rural part of the twp have all manner of silly ordinances voted in by those lakeshore folks.....most of which moved here from the cities already mentioned. Rural Michigan, U.P. or downstate, are as Right leaning as rural Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, etc., but we are now outnumbered by the multitudes who live in the urban and sub-urban areas of the state. It is disheartening to say the least.

In NY, we have the same problem. The dems don't care about the upstate hicks because they carry the NYC counties and upstate has no vote. I believe king cuomo only carried 6 counties.

Us Yoopers have been trying to change what goes on below the bridge for quite some time. The “Trolls”, “Appleknockers”, “Flatlanders” outnumber us, therefore, we don’t really have a say in what happens.

Some other states are beginning to have the same problems, even here in the south. Outsiders from the big cities are moving in by the truck loads. It is only a matter of time until they start to try to turn our states into the ones they just left and rural folks just will not have the votes to do anything about it. Trappers are usually an easy target as they are few in numbers and are reluctant to band together to form one strong group to fight this takeover. It is coming, the question is do we continue to stick our head in the sand, or do we ALL stand up together to meet the coming challenges.

Wench, carried 13 of the 83 counties in Michigan when she got elected. Marquette County has NMU with all the transplant college kids. Above or below the bridge, Wench has been very terrible for the state.

I happen to live in Marquette County. Yes, NMU has a bunch of transplants. They come here because it’s beautiful and not ruined like where they came from and then work toward making it into where they came from. I don’t get it. I proudly wear my “Predator Trapper” hat everywhere I go. I proudly talk about Hunting, Trapping, Fishing and an overall outdoor lifestyle. I proudly talk about my 25 year heterosexual marriage. I proudly talk about being a Christian. I proudly promote the right to raise animals and have gardens even in an urban environment. They aren’t going to come here and force me to change. This the is UP and I’m a Yooper, born and raised!
