If their pants are on the ground, that means they're not ready for a brawl!

Just pick a place in a good area near a bus line. Summerlin is great. Also try The Lakes. And Peccole Ranch. Think places on W. Sahara, W. Flamingo, W. Desert Inn. W. Charleston. Major bus lines.

Thanks for all the great suggestions. I'll look into them. Definitely more interested in a detached house or single story condo and the closer to grocery shopping the better. Also how is medical care there? Thanks so much!!

I am sorry to my fellow residents, but Vegas is just going to keep having more people. There's nothing wrong with that. It's still smaller than most major cities. Let people move here if they want to.

No, wrong. There is absolutely no way that Nevada residents will ever vote for an income tax. Not going to happen. Written into the constitution. A non-starter. NOT ever going to happen. Period.

Before the state government went completely Democrat, I would have agreed with that. Now, all bets are off. To many people out there who vote Democrat want their free $hit, and the only way to pay for that would be an income tax.

To the original topic, the Vegas metro area is one of the most car-centric areas in the country. If you don't have a car, you're putting yourself at a huge disadvantage. If you want to live carless, there are vastly better cities to move to. The introduction of the ride share services has made living without a car more possible than it used to be, but you'd then be dependent on them.

Texas doesn't have an income tax either, but they do have high property taxes in many parts to compensate for the lack of income tax.

Nevada is growing and it is a place that constantly promotes its own growth. There is no limited growth or no-growth statutes in Nevada. Due to geography, all of the growth in NV is in the state's two urban areas: Clark and Washoe. You cannot have a growing urban population and not have urban-specific needs. The first is cause for the second. The larger the urban areas of Nevada become, the larger their portion of seats in the state legislature will get. That means more votes for urban needs. Which party better represents urban needs? (worker protections, education funding, environmental policy, living wages, health care, higher education)

If you want to slow down the urbanization of Nevada's politics then you must limit or completely stop growth (that clashes with your libertarian ideals, I know). But you can't have it both ways.

Yeah, libertarian ideology was a load of BS, along with the tea party movement. We saw what that truly was, which is just another mask of the GOP.

It's easy to not want social services when you're an old F*** crapping your pants and you've already benefited from all the social programs of the past. Things like global warming are an after thought for you because you've already got one foot in the grave.
