35 acres in Melby Ranch, want to sell

Valid points are made here and there. Along with a lot of misinformation. Lloyds of London provided insurance to Forbes Park. Insurance was more difficult due to the clear fire hazard. Fire departments usually save rural foundations by the way, I used to be a volunteer fireman. That is what the paid Chief said.

If people were worried about fire, and they should have been, they would have cleared 50' around their house. I know people who did that and saved their Forbes Park homes. Not all however. Many areas do not allow clearing around the home. Such as Paradise, California - which burned to the ground.

My Forbes Park lot burned last year. The value dropped commensurately. My realtor advised me to hold unto it until it greens back up.

Colorado = libertarian?

I want whatever you are smoking. Colorado has become a deep blue state.

Even if that is true, it doesn't change the fact there is a large population of libertarians here.

The political temperament of the proles matters not. The state and county governments are not libertarian in the slightest. One might find a measurable sample in Wyoming, Montana, or Idaho.

COLO SPGS tends to vote 60% or more for the GOP and against new or increased taxes, they even vote down most school district mil levy increases. Rural COLO counties even looked at secession a few years ago in their zeal to not be a part of the blueness of urban areas. For sure Denver and Boulder are deep blue, maybe Pueblo too.

What about people living / staying there from abroad ? I'm not even into politics in my own country or where I live and definitely would avoid politics in the states - would people dislike that ?

There are almost always a few exceptions. They do not break the rule.

Avoiding politics is always a safe approach. Unfortunately our lives are often controlled by those who do not avoid politics.

I'm not aware of any general animosity towards the British. Though I would avoid being seen as well to do. Hating the rich is more popular than it used to be. A socialist mindset has grown strong roots in the more liberal mindset. Thought and speech control is also what 2 million Washington bureaucrats are all about. That shouldn't be a problem for you as the situation is even more dire in modern England.
