Howdy folks. My lease is finishing up in Portland, and after living up and down the west coast(SF, LA, PDX), I just find myself shaking my head at these people whom I'll carefully refrain from describing too scathingly. You know, the hipster, snarky, pretentious, effeminate, pro-minority, anti-white, socially brainwashed types. Basically the core demographic in any of the aforementioned cities. I need something decidedly more traditional and masculine. I need to get away from the cookie cutter liberal majority that dominates any major metro in the U.S.


Please, no Texas, but hopefully any smaller, out-of-the-way city that still remembers and celebrates its national heritage.


Thanks!

Boise? Or just move to the outer suburbs of most major cities.

It's happening everywhere, but it's worst on the coast. You should look inland at the Mountain West. It's somewhere in between the progressives disconnected from reality on the West Coast and the wacko uber conservatives of the Southeast.

There are cities all over the country that are rising, but still haven't been saturated with the brainwashed social elitist types you speak of. Are you wanting an urban or suburban lifestyle? That can narrow it down.


The very nature of the OP makes me apprehensive for a couple reasons. There are more than a couple people on here that start threads like this under the guise of needing to get away from the pretentious self satisfying BS of the coast elitists. It usually turns into a way for them to passive-aggressively bash the places the elitists consider beneath them.

The second reason being the spoon-fed educational elitist that live on the coasts often take it as a personal attack when people have differing opinions than they do. Often they emphatically and ignorantly berate the places they consider less enlightened. I am a fan of the "non elite" places. I squirm a little when I watch them get put down by people who wouldn't give them the time of day, in order to form a truly educated opinion on them.

But if you're sincere I'll play

I am back to the Midwestern region of the US. I have found my place in Cleveland after living in the PNW for 36 years. I would recommend the OP begin a search here. People here are proud of their city and it has much more to offer than most who are not familiar with the city of Clevealnd realize. It has somewhat of a bad hype but if you keep in mind the stellar hype of those places in which the OP has seen disappointment, maybe he will disregard hearsay and give those cities that are not on the popular radar screen a good look for himself.

I have found that people here are unpretenious and have been friendly and helpful towards this newcomer of four months. So that's a bonus as well.

Well I've seriously eyed Boise, but I'm a bit worried that the Portlanders have infiltrated their ranks with their institutionalized ideals and socialist agendas. If however, you really feel Boise is closer to what I'm seeking, I'd love to hear more about the people and how they abhor the socially popular liberal edicts.

I'd love for you to be more specific as you've piqued my curiosity, but if you mention Denver, I'll know who I'm talking to, and furthermore know that you cannot help to assist me in my exodus.

1. Mjlo, I completely understand your apprehension, and yes, I am being 100% sincere. This is an immediate move and will be self-sustaining for the interim until I get settled, so all things equal, I get to choose.

2. I in no way wish to bash any elitists, and having clearly stated a description of the faction I'm trying to avoid, will no longer beat a dead horse as to why I -do- feel they are beneath me due to the self-entitled, terminally smug way they act and the mindless way in which their brains are conditioned to think.

3. I am also a fan of Non-elite places! I come from a small shore town on the east coast that's very blue collar and absolutely do not need the excessive level of coddling that these west coast enclaves so eagerly afford. With that said, I am looking for a small -city- and not small town, so a walkable, livable core is really the one element I have to have. Other than that, I'm completely open to any and all ideas.

Thanks again boils and ghouls!
