Default ...

There are conservative cities???

I mean, Omaha a city (with some recent big annexations) of about 450,000 people within 'city limits' is a blue city in one of the most red states in the nation..

Sometimes I wonder when Omaha is going to secede from the state of Nebraska and make Iowa its new home..

With that said I have no issues with any conservatives, except for the 'little limbaugh's and savages' those people give me the heeby jeebies!!

Unless Colorado Springs has a Mormon hive, I find it hard to believe it's as creepy.

I'm more libertarian than anything, but thank your local liberals for such downfalls of society as the end of slavery (Republicans, back when the Democrats were the conservatives) and the end of Jim Crow (ditto). Next up: Gays are people too!


I can't wait for the day when bibles (or korans...you people hate the moslems, but how different are they really?) are featured in museums as curiosity pieces. And spare me the "not all christians are backwards-thinking troglodytes"...I know that. I'm directing this at the average bible-thumping conservative. Your days are numbered.


Signed,

A native of Richmond, VA...conservative stronghold.


Edit- I also lived in San Francisco and Seattle and am no fan of humorless liberal types. So much for pigeonholing me.

No, mostly evangelicals. I might find SLC more creepy, but it's been so long since I've been there. Colorado Springs is just more fresh in my mind.

I guess you don't get sarcasm. I should have said liberals are responsible for such "downfalls of society" as the end of slavery, etc.


Edit: I just re-read my post and I don't really find the wording (or where I was coming from) too confusing.

For the record, I despise social conservatism and am basically saying that if it had prevailed in the late 19th and mid-20th centuries, we'd still have slavery and/or Jim Crow laws.

Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Jacksonville (I believe) are just a few of the major conservative cities.

it just hit me why they might not get any love (or around here at least). Maybe because these cities are so undense and unwalkable so people who love cities don't love these cities

Are you kidding?

Taking into mind the difference in fertility rates between liberals and conservatives, I don't see that happening anytime soon.
