Hi mjtinmemphis,
Abilene,Lubbock and Waco in Texas.I dont get the best bang for my buck in big blue cities..big democratic cities dont appeal to me neways.I need a place with lots of church of Christ girls so thats why I chose Abilene,Lubbock and Waco since i want to marry a girl from my faith.I know Baylor is baptist but i get the impression that plenty of cofC girls go there.

Better economies with good job growth and good Buying Power (average annual income vs cost of living) are generally in METROS that are moderate to right leading. The more liberal an area, the more a company is likely to relocate elsewhere due to a high tax burden, strapping over regulations, and high operating costs (the most expensive metros have the highest costs of living). Metros have more of an impact on an area's economy than the central city. So, in reality, what you're saying isn't true.
Thank you march2....I really appreciate it.

1)Safety, or at the least a visible perception of safety. No ghettoism with a bunch of trash in the streets, burnt out buildings nearby, mischief, loitering, panhandling, etc. City limits or suburbs, IDC.
2)Cost of living. If I'm struggling to meet ends meet it's not worth it. Red flags would be studio apts for over $600 with little-to-no utilities included, high sales taxes/pointless food taxes(looking at you Philthy),
3)Public transit. Gotta get where I need to go. Doesn't have to be 24/7 or have trains but at most a 10-15-minute walk to a bus stop.
4)Stable economy. In case of a downturn I'd like to be in a metro with blue collar work available.
4)Road maintenance. When it snows they gotta clean it up. Also filling cracks/potholes would be good too.
5)Weather: If there are frequent severe thunderstorm/tornado/hurricane warnings or ice storms I want no part of it. I'm indifferent to anything else(except earthquakes lol).
6)Politics. I'm right-leaning. I don't mind living in a town that usuallyvotes dem(tho I prefer a right-leaning county/region) but with that being said don't shove your lefttism down my throat. No silly protests, no plethora of "Hate has no home here" signs. Also no religion being shoved down my throat. It's okay to do you but respect that I do me.
