Good grief. Enough already. All the comments about conservatism, liberalism, just stop. You can find conservatives in Decatur and liberals in East Cobb.

It's not like anyone has to share the stereotypical viewpoints and values of his or her community to fit in and meet some nice people. I don't. And I feel fine. (Cue REM...)

Two questions should arise: Can I afford it, and do I feel safe. The rest falls into place.

Trust me, I wish that this was a non-issue as well. But lets be realistic, right wing conservatives (not all of them, but a lot that I have encountered, even up here in the "blue" state) tend to not be the most "accepting" folks on the planet (unless you're white, christian, and vote republican). I have no problem with anyone, no matter what their religious, political, or social beliefs are. But who wants to live in an area where you are judged because you don't go to church, or don't agree with the wars, etc etc. Thats why I am looking for some sort of balance, and don't want to end up making a huge investment in a home in an area that my family and I wouldn't feel accepted into the community. Which is why I am not even considering the more "Liberal" parts of greater Atlanta either.

With all due respect, how are you coming to these conclusions and reservations? Many natives and transplants from Boston/New England have stated that people such as yourself are happy here, and have no regrets.

If you are friendly, approachable and interact well with people politics are very secondary. My best friend and I are polar opposites politically, but I couldn't love them more.
