overwhelminging Republican doesn't mean the people you are talking about voted for GOP. you are basically talking about welfare type people, not the GOP's natural demo. most of the GOP votersin applachia support GOP because they are pro-life, pro-gun rights, pro-coal mining, and that kind of thing.

As a gay person myself, I miss the Westboro Baptist Church having such a prominent impact in the media. Why? Because they exposed the most ugly, extreme side of homophobia and caused other conservative Christians to distance themselves from them. Today, you have mainstream right wing pastors becoming more extreme, saying some of the same things Westboro did.

I would say Rexburg, Idaho fits the bill. It has around 25,000 people, and in recent years Madison county, of which it is the seat, voted 29% for Evan McMullin (I think his highest total anywhere) 93% for Romney in 2012, 91% for Bush in 2004, and 92% for Reagan in 1984. Can't get much more conservative than that

you are getting the thread off topic with your personal politics.

the topic is about conservative cities, not how you feel about westboro church a gay liberal person. no mainstream church has ever been like westboro church. that is smear. conservatism and phelps have nothing to do with each other.

Idiots like Westboro are part of the reason the title "conservative" has such a bad rep. These folks are NOT conservative. They are just WRONG. ...HATEFUL. ...STUPID. They are deserving of the very same wrong, hateful, & stupid judgements that they mete out. "Soon & very soon, we are going o meet the King....."

no logical and fair person thinks a group of people that protests at military funerals is conservative.

Protesting at military funerals is neither liberal or conservative in itself

ok. why don't you start talking about the topic rather than politics? the topic is about cities to move to that are conservative. i don't undrestand why a liberal is even looking at this topic.
