When you’re a billionaire you can choose to live wherever you like, anywhere in the world. But, when your primary residence is in the U.S., there are certain places where you can live freer than others. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is now making a move that will ensure he can live in a place with less government overreach.
Bezos and fiancee Lauren Sanchez have reportedly decided to leave the billionaire’s longtime home of Seattle, Washington — a place that has seen a steep decline in the last decade or so — for a place with more sun, less rain and more freedom — Miami, Florida.
In a post to his Instagram account, Bezos made the announcement, citing that he wants to be closer to where he spent some of his formative years in high school and to be closer to his parents.
Seattle has been my home since 1994 when I started Amazon out of my garage. That’s my dad behind the camera in this video, touring Amazon’s first “office.” My parents have always been my biggest supporters. They recently moved back to Miami, the place we lived when I was younger (Miami Palmetto High class of ’82 — GO Panthers!) I want to be close to my parents, and Lauren and I love Miami. Also, Blue Origin’s operations are increasingly shifting to Cape Canaveral. For all that, I’m planning to return to Miami, leaving the Pacific Northwest.
Of course, one has to take into account that Miami is an exponentially freer place than Seattle, which has become one of the hubs for tyrannical government on the left coast, including Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Florida has increasingly become a place where Americans flock when the states they come from infringe on their rights more and more.
