Id say Texas is your best bet because it is conservative for the most part and has a good economy so you could find a good job easier than many other places.

I know many people who would say that being "conservative for the most part" is a turn off.

TX's economy is okay depending on what you're looking to do. If TX is on the table you should also look into Washington, Oregon, California, Utah, Colorado, Minnesota, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Maryland, DC, Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia.

hi,I only mentioned Texas being conservative because the OP was looking for states that oppose UN agendas.I would not think New York would be opposed to the UN agendas because the UN building is in that state.I hope this clears everything up and I am sorry for any confusion caused.

I'm not sure where you're getting this information (or hysteria), but maybe think outside the box a little bit and research more. Many, if not most cities (including in TX) are figuring out that it's just not practical to continue to sprawl on and on and on. Eventually, someone's got to pay for the costs of all of that infrastructure. There's no agenda forcing people to take buses or to live in an apartment or walk everywhere.... just more living options and options for getting around. This higher density growth also means more revenue for cities to fix potholes, improve traffic signals, fight crime, etc. Even the massively sprawling suburb Plano, TX is looking at more mixed use planning because they can't continue to expand.

With that said, there's tons of places throughout the country where you can live in a sprawling, low density suburb and never have to worry about those pesky sidewalks or bus lanes. Honestly, most of America is low density suburban.
