Greenville SC is a good place for conservatives, and near the Blue Ridge mountains.

It is fine to want to live where people generally share your values. But if you need to be totally insulated from any viewpoint that conflicts with your own, you are one thin-skinned little melting snowflake.

I would look for a place that allows me the freedoms I want, such as gun rights, land use regulations, social services, whatever, and live there and don't worry about what you neighbor is doing.

I think this is true on the far-left and the far-right. Also, if you live in a very one-sided area and are on the opposite end of the spectrum from the dominant culture, life it can be quite lonely and frustrating. I lived in Charlotte for a little while and I liked the political sensibilities there. It seemed pretty well balanced i.e. not too far left or not too far right, and it seemed like everybody had a voice which is a good thing. If you are gay and atheist there, it's no issue and there are very gay-friendly areas of the city. If you want to be evangelical Christian, there is a huge conservative evangelical community there.

Just wanted to say that I've made the decision: As of today, I am officially adding "snowflake" to my list of buzzwords that prompt me to dismiss everything else said by the writer or speaker.

I think this is a trolling thread, but the most conservative city is probably Provo, Utah.

Self-censorship is best censorship.
