Tired of the South? Wanna come to the West? Sike! It sucks.
Here are some reasons to not come to the West. Take it from me, I used to live in the West.
As many people moved to the West to become farmers, there was too many!This means that there was so many crops, that stuff like cotton or fruits and vegetables were sold at a cheaper price! Farmers in the West lost more money than they gained.
These farmers wanted to have a policy that would raise crop prices, regulate railroad costs, and storage charges so they wouldn't be charged with a high price.
Farmers got tired of having no political power, leading to the formation of the populist party. It's pretty rough being a farmer in the West!
