    part of the population to "relocate" - at least, until the next census.

    single individuals - retired individuals - why not "move" into a red district for a few elections.  

    something to think about....

      to select a red state college for purposes of organizing for action; surely there are some you wouldn't have to be ashamed of mentioning on a resume and at the same time could use to change the stats for the next census.

      Colleges by State

      UTexas for example has an underwater archaeology program that would probably be an exception to an expectation that Red State colleges would be cheaper, more focused on sports and fraternity/sorority activities than academics and relatively easier for someone with a k12 education in a blue state to stand out at.

      Louisiana has Tulane, North Carolina has Duke and Wake Forest,  Michigan has Kettering; I'm not sure if it would make sense to pick one state to focus on so as to get the greatest effect or if there are enough Daily Kos reading high school students willing to make the sort of commitment that led to the integration of schools in the south so as to make this work.
