Learning to put up with, ignore, and accept people of other values/ideas will free up to many more possibilities. A person often limits his/her choices by their limiting mindset.

I moved from one of those "evil" / mostly conservative places to a supposedly more open-minded one, and ended up liking and preferring the original location much more. The location change didn't solve the matter. I ended up changing. Sometimes our attitude and perspective needs an overhaul and upgrade...

Never heard of Jews trying to covert anybody to their religion worldwide so as an Agnostic I prefer their religion the best. Not sure about what Catholics do they can be religious but not in your face about it as Evangelical Baptist people and Southern evangelical christians.
In general the term "Jewish" is though of as both a religious and an ethnic identity among the Jewish community. While they don't specifically turn away converts, they certainly don't seek them out. You typically are Jewish by birth, much the same way as you would be English, French, American, etc.

There are going to be conservatives in Cali, just like there are liberals in Texas. Doesn't mean it's the norm in both places.
It does mean, though, that no matter where you live, you probably should learn to get along with people regardless of political or religious beliefs rather than trying to move somewhere so as to isolate yourself from beliefs that are different from yours. If you're trying to avoid Conservatives, Liberals, Libertarians, atheists, Christians, etc., you likely will fail no matter where you live. People of all different beliefs are everywhere; learn to deal with it rather than avoiding it; you just might learn something from someone who sees the world differently than you do.

Detroit is a very Democratic and very cheap city. Probably some of the cheapest housing values in the nation. The same goes for the Rio Grande Valley, places like Brownsville and Laredo which are very Democratic and full of sanctuary cities.

I hear Asheville, North Carolina and Yellow Springs, Ohio are smaller cities/towns with lots of hippie type people. New Orleans is very liberal within the city itself but the rest of Louisiana, including NO's suburbs, are conservative.

Same thing happened to me after living in Berkeley and SF and i ended up boycotting the Democratic party and voting Republican for every entry in local elections in Berkeley and SF.

Funny thing though, once I moved to West Texas, i got sick of the strongly Conservative rhetoric and voted for all the Democrats and liberal Republicans to be put into their local offices.
