The power of voting can be a lot greater than you think, especially when you do it with your feet. In this episode, we discuss the latest trend sweeping the nation: the Great Reshuffling - and why you might consider hopping aboard.
good afternoon good afternoon folks in brisket arizona that’s right this is diane and randall grove and i’m the randall he’s the randall we are here in the lovely town of prescott arizona loving life loving our little business here and loving to reach uh to you guys and chat with you about uh different topics different topics so today we’re going to talk about a new phenomenon that’s sweeping the country called voting with your feet yes it’s more than one way to vote yeah if you can’t get the result that you want you can always vote with your feet so that was a quote that actually i think it was lenin uh people asked you know did the people uh want the czar or the did the people want to end the war this is world war one you know when did the people vote uh when did the soldiers vote that they should end the war and he said they voted with their feet meaning that they had all retreated from the front and you know right just gave up the fight and uh that’s a term that’s kind of bandied about quite a bit the idea of voting with you voting with your fee and we see it all the time as agents here uh we represent a lot of buyers uh they’re coming from california washington oregon even some new jersey folks yeah and um they are voting with their feet uh they are not happy with things that are occurring in their home states and they are retired and they’re like you know what we have a luxury now and the ability to vote with our feet uh we don’t have to put up with it anymore we don’t uh and we want to move on yeah and so a lot of them are coming here to prescott yeah a lot of them are a lot of them are it’s you know it’s the last resort uh you know it’s in communist countries like cuba and east germany you know they’ll build a wall to keep people from voting with their feet because they know their people are unhappy and uh so far there’s no place in the united states that i know of that forces you to stay where you are although california tried they were trying to tax people who are leaving you know and i can’t imagine that that’s gonna stick but uh but at this point in time you can still vote with your feet and the thing about it about voting with your fee is you get instant results if you elect your candidate it’s gonna take a while before your candidates able to bring you the changes that you want but when you vote for your feet you go to some place where things are happening the way that you want them to it’s right instantaneously you get immediate satisfaction you get immediate results um depending on where you go of course yeah um and so we get a lot of people who are like i’m moving on i can’t change what’s occurring in my state i sure have tried i’ve tried to hang in there as long as i can and hoping that there might be a change and now that they’re retired they have the freedom and the wherewithal they’re not tied to a job or career or kids in school yeah and so we are seeing it more and more that people are voting with their feet and they’re going where they feel uh with like-minded people yeah and um so it’s been an interesting thing to watch uh unfold and develop yeah and so we say it a lot a lot uh and it’s a phenomenon that’s happening really all over the country uh there’s a lot of new flux uh people call it the the the great reselection the great reset i forget that i don’t know yeah but it’s like the covet thing and it’s like everyone is sort of rethinking what they want to do with their lives where they want to spend their lives covered has changed a lot of things yeah it’s changed the path for a lot of people reshuffling i’m sorry the great reshuffling i knew it would come to you yes it always does but it is interesting to see a lot of people um have the effects of cobit and they realize hey you know i was gonna retire in five years um but now i actually can live and work wherever i want yeah because people started working remotely yes so it’s enabled them to move up their plans to move to a different state yeah hopefully prescott and it’s changed their life plan and that’s all because of covet they were like we have to work at home we’re going to figure this out and once it was figured out people realized well hell i can keep doing this nothing nothing to stop why do i need to stay here i can move where i want to move ahead of retirement i don’t have to wait until i retire right which is kind of cool yeah and for those who are kind of on the other side of the the the work period you know their work careers and looking at retirement you know you reach a certain age you realize that the situation is not going to be fixed on your watch you’re just not going to live that long you know you don’t have 40 years ago that’s great yeah i mean when you’re in your 20s it’s easier to be optimistic you want to be part of the solution you want to affect change you make the world a better place you get to be an old man it’s like ah you know i just i’m tired of fighting yeah all i’m looking for is peace i want peace happiness peace and i want my money to last until i die [Laughter] that’s all you’re looking for when you retire like hey i’m done i just want to chill out
