  • Not really I just happen to live in a predominantly multicultural area full of people from all walks of life. Older generation are very Conservatives whilst the young people are with the complete opposite. I'm happy either way, I don't think living next door a liberal would affect me too much. But let just say I'm not moving to London or Brighton anytime soon for the reason it's full of pretentious liberal nut jobs

    • Any idea why that is? Why younger people tend to be more Liberal?
      I'm a Republican living in California. As long as they don't deliberately provoke me with their viewpoints, I can get along with them fine. Yeah, London is finished.

      The same, I'm not moving to San Francisco, Eureka or Davis anytime soon.

    • I support gays very strongly and I'm civil with Muslims I even have some Muslim friends but I don't agree with the religion. I wouldn't say I was ethier liberal or Conservative. I don't like either party but I'm definitely more right leaning.

    • I'm more into classical liberalism

  • You should. You'd prob feel bad about living in a place that votes to shuffle tax money into programs you don't completely support and everyone around you pushes an agenda opposite of what your party supports. You'd also be constantly exposed to these people and will have to suffer through that.

  • Perhaps. I'm willing to speak up. However, some people are ignorant and even get irrational. So, I have to be careful where I choose to live or what I say to that certain extent. It's primarily because people get irrational/unreasonable why I would be careful where I live or what I say.

  • I'm Norwegian and quite happy with my country. If I had to flee from my country if someone waged war at it, then I would try to go to either Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Germany or France because their politics seems relatively reasonable. The jobs there also has relatively decent wages compared to many other countries in the world. I wouldn't go to the US where poor, the middle-class and worker's rights aren't respected. The class gap is way too huge. I wouldn't move to a country having shariah laws either since I don't support gender inequality, segregation of religious and ethnic minorities, the anti-democratic views etc.

    To me strong institutions, the balance between socialism and capitalism etc. are important.

  • Yes definitely.
    I don’t wanna live in a politically unstable or suppressive country where a civil war could break out any moment or there are constant strikes. I don’t even wanna live in an area where people constantly ask “Why do I have to speak English in my own country” tbh

    • That's why I wanted to visit. Cuz there's no refugees. That's what I meant when I asked if there are Muslims there.

    • There are some, but the majority of them leaves. They don't want to stay.

      Plus, you do know that not all refugees are Muslim, right?

  • I do because if I was to move out the country, I would not want to live somewhere that there is a lack of women's rights.

  • Well the predominant reasons people move are work education and love
    So while people may wish to live in areas that align with their politics it is not so often a choice you most often end up going where that is
    You may wish tolive in some relatively secular progressive area but if the job you got is in the Bible belt that is where it is

  • Not really. I try to leave politics out of my life. I have a good understand of what goes on and I feel very confident in my conservative beliefs. But despite New York and Pennsylvania being slightly more liberal I could care less. Those are the most beautiful states in my opinion. New York City is just amazing and so is Philly. 2 favorite cities in America. I would just hope if I were to live in either of those places some day I would be respected for my opinions and not trashed lol.

    • Me either. My mom wants to send me to UC Davis. I told her it's the most Liberal city in America. No way

    • I can sympathize. I wanted to go to MIT for grad school, but I choose University of Michigan because of how backwater and degenerate Boston is.

  • In most cases, yes. I don’t think it’s the most important consideration, but it is up there. You should also factor region into consideration. For example, New York, a “liberal state”, has multiple areas in the southern and northern ends, respectively, that are extremely conservative.

    • So does California, but it's about who controls it. It's the liberal population centers that control Albany and Sacramento. Moderate and conservative Californians are really just abused children.

    • Pretty much. The New York City area and Albany practically control the entire state, unfortunately.

  • I haven't considered it before but now I would.

    My liberal friends live in a community that is super liberal and believes in diversity. Meanwhile they complain about crime and poor schools.

    I live in a wealthy upscale conservative area, and we are safe, neighbors are fantastic, and schools are great.

  • Yes, but it's one of many things to consider.

    I definitely don't want to live in a heavily liberal area, but not necessarily for political reasons. Liberal areas tend to be insanely expensive and have tons of dumb laws/regulations and taxes. I. E. San Francisco or Chicago.

    Other things I consider is family proximity, weather, natural disasters, entertainment, employment opportunities... etc.

  • Politics would be a minor factor for me. My main factors would be cost of living, climate, terrain, aesthetic, crime rate, and opportunities for employment and education. That said, I would rather not live in a place that's overly conservative or overly liberal

    • I have an official residence house in Washington state, and a winter home in California. I'm getting the fuck out of California ASAP. If you think Cal is messed up after 8 years of Jerry Brown, the next 8 years of Gavin Newsom will be much much worse. Free single payer health care and Junior College for everyone including illegal aliens. And I'll deal with Washington (which is not far behind) later.

    • I wish we could save Washington, it's such a nice place lol

    • Honestly I don't know which state is more messed up; California, Illinois, or New York.

    • @Wally48 Surprisingly California is 42nd on the list of worst states financially. Illinois is the worst at #50 and New York is #41. But that is probably because their taxes are high enough to cover a lot of their wastful spending. These are stats from the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. I am personally looking at Tennessee.
