That is the way it is for most blue States actually, if one looks at the election results county by county the overwhelming majority of the area in
the US is vividly and clearly red. However, a few counties stacked from floor to ceiling with entitlement seeking, fear driven liberal Nanny State
fans can and does dominate the State. Harry Reid won only one county in Nevada - the one that matters... The rest of these people are basically
Same happens with NYC in your case. Missouri (my State) is more evenly disbursed. We do have two urban centers that vote consistently liberal - St.
Louis and KC. However, there are enough population elsewhere who espouse more conservative views that the State is not dominated totally and forced
to live under progressivism.
Missouri is a State of vast contrasts in its gun laws as where I live I can open or concealed carry without a sideways glance. However, in KC and St.
Louis they have city laws that are pretty restrictive.

The City should become its own district, like D.C., or something similar to that.
I agree - these urban cesspools should be City-States in their own right so that the rest of the State's population are not forced to live under
their urban Nanny State Utopian nightmare.
I am saddened for you in your situation - stuck with the choice to either live and work within the system dominated by liberal idiots in NYC in the
place you grew up or move to a new State with more freedom and better laws losing friends and family in exchange. Tough call.
