For some, these places are paradise, just not for me.

Thanks to everyone thus far for the input and suggestions. Definitely have some things to look into for awhile now as we narrow our list of places

But why would you discuss politics with people who you either don't know well or know they disagree with you? Are you one of those people who feels a need to let everyone you meet hear your views?

Me discussing politics doesn't happen often, because when I do, people get offended and butt hurt.

Me not being a major liberal in San Francisco means on a daily basis I deal with and put up with non stop liberal views & political talk. I rarely chime in, usually just go about my day. But being around it all the time, gets rather old and annoying.

I'm not sure why this is hard to understand and you want to argue. Am I not allowed to want to be away from certain things?

You don't have to discuss politics to get an ear full of extreme opinions these days. Better to find a moderate/balanced sort of place. Actually a place where the politics are "settled" as either red or blue might be better than places where things are in flux. California is a blue state but not every place in the state feels the need to convince everyone they are true believers.

"Not chiming in" with politics is pretty easy to do if you really don't want to do it. (not you specifically, "you" in general). Where I get affected by politics is when it hits my bank account. It doesn't matter how quiet I am about politics, I can't do anything about government forced finances. This was my biggest problem when I was in California. I lived in a quite liberal area of California (Burbank and Hollywood) and a kinda-middleish part (San Diego). I was able to not chime in with my political beliefs but the most frustrating thing was being taxed so much.

It's hard not to chime in with the amount that you get taxed in California. I feel it every paycheck and never eases the pain!

The whackadoo WAY far left types go after everyone who doesn't believe like you, and it's in the forefront here like you wouldn't imagine.

There's no discussion with them. And it's all they think about.

This is true, glad someone can back me up on this. If you aren't liberal in San Francisco, you're automatically racist and a bigot. One of the many reasons we shall be leaving

Up here in Portland, specifically/mostly Multnomah County is getting that way too. Protests constantly, some peaceful, some not so much.


I'll be moving out of here sometime next year, most likely Central Florida. No state income taxes, lower cost of living, and no more gray, dreary damp cold constant rain for 9 months of the year.
