I'd like to know what right-wing political spectrum folk (republicans, libertarians, independents) would consider the nicest towns and cities in California that lean conservative. Left-wings can voice their opinion, but I don't want to see my thread flipped and have bashing on conservative learning cities occur.

Some on the top of my mind:
-Irvine
-Anaheim
-Riverside
-Temecula
-Rancho Cucomonga
-Corona
-Simi Valley
-Thousand Oaks
-Oxnard (to some extent still conservative)
-Camarillo
-Folsom
-Rancho Cordova
-Citrus Heights
-Chico
-Santa Maria-Orcutt

What you want, and what you'll get are often not the same. Lmao.

The negative and simplistic term "right-wing" tends to lump too many of us who believe in foresight, strict adherence to Constitutional principle, and rule of law rather than rule by constantly-changing popular sentiment in with the out-and -out bigots and the most dogmatic among the religious fringe,

I can understand use of that term by a neophyte, but it tends to connote a simplistic stereotype, and to demonize all of us who don't subscribe to Political Correctness.

What you wrote was true 30 years ago but now is not really true. The only conservative places left are really out in the country (e.g. certain towns in the Sierra Foothills, certain towns in the desert). The suburban / exurban places listed here have changed enormously since the 80s.

Bakersfield and Oildale definitely come to mind. The rest listed are just "California Conservative" which might as well mean Southern Democrat.

Not Ventura County, it has turned pretty blue, only Simi Valley is left, barely Republican. The County went Democratic for B. Obama and J. Brown

Nov 2014: Newly elected State Assemblywoman Democrat Jacqui Irwin's 44th District includes Moorpark, Thousand Oaks, Camarillo, Port Hueneme and most of Oxnard.

City-by-city vote tallies in the district show that Irwin considerably outperformed Democratic voter registration in Thousand Oaks, capturing 47.7 percent of the vote

Assemblyman Scott Wilk, whose 38th District includes the city of Simi Valley, will now be the only Republican to represent any portion of the county in Sacramento.

In 44th District Democrats hold a slight edge in voter registration in the district, 39.9 percent to 34.1 percent

My voting precinct has the highest percentage of Republican voters in the county. It also has the highest Green Party percentage (although that number is WAY less).

People have political leanings, cities don't.

Rancho Cordova and Citrus Heights?

No.

Folsom, barely, but it's no the right wing you're thinking of. It's the Mitt Romney type of right wing (greedy rich people).

Riverside is middle-of-the-road.

OP, your answer is Ridgecrest. You'll love it......at first.

Ridgecrest turned me from a far right-winger into a bleeding heart liberal in less than a year.

Anaheim was just ranked the 7th most conservative large city (250k population) in the country.
