I heard that Gallup New Mexico will fully accept anyone into their town even the biggest drunken bum that you can think of. It is my theory that every state has a town like that---that will accept anyone no matter who they are or what theyve done(with limits of course). I suppose the reason is so that certain types that wouldn't fit in anywhere else can go and live without bothering the straight up communities. So which town in your state is open to anyone?

To try at semi-serious Chicago has a good deal of drinking places and a high rate of alcohol drinking. Alaska I think is sometimes seen as full of drunks with Anchorage and Fairbanks fairly high in alcohol consumption.

I'm a bit anti-alcohol though so my natural urge, if I were to assume you're serious, would be to get help. Something like 50,000 a year die of alcohol-related problems.

Sure, every state has run down, worn out cities and forgotten, dying small towns. I'd say that sort of person would fit right in. A person could move to LA or NYC tomorrow and no one would care. I doubt anyone would realize that the drunk was there.

I can totally see Ithaca in upstate NY being like that. They're really accepting of all walks of life and every single person I met there was so nice. It's the most liberal place I've ever been to.

This town (South Jamaica, Queens, New York City) lol .

The other night I saw a drunk/crackhead crash and flip off his bike into a garbage can and he sat in the garbage filled grass with garbage all over him cursing at the laughing people walking by.

well I dont think the poeple in Gallup,New Mexico are too concerned with being liberal or conservative, they are more concerned with their lives in gangs,alcohol,drugs,teen pregnancy,racism). The town is truely a dump and I would never raise my kids there. There are bums passed out on the sides of the streets, the town is dirty and most of the people are too.

half the people in the town probably dont even know what liberal or conservative means.
