Every time I go to Branson I get the best feeling ever, from the shows, to the lakes, to the shopping, I love it. When I travel to Kansas City, I feel amazed at the fountains, block after block after block, and the shopping, great skyline views, friendly people, and entertainment such as worlds of fun and oceans of fun. When I go to St. Louis, I'm taken by the Arch, the FREE zoo, the almost Hollywood feel, and the urban light rail rides I find myself on from time to time. Springfield, the biggest little feeling city I have ever been to, great cost of living, so outdoor oriented, and so many places of worship, the people there are so genuine and great, it's an amazing place to be. From St. Joseph, to Cape Girardeau, to Joplin, to the suburbs of Lee's Summit, Gladstone, O'Fallon, and the wonderful small towns such as Hannibal, Osage Beach, or Fulton, Missouri is my home and the place I will be forever! Thank you God for such a great place to live!

I wish Stl was a nice as KC. I mean the city. It's a dump in many areas, it's embarassing.

I think if somehow Stl got a Republican mayor things would improve a lot.

Agree. I don't want a bunch of Yankees moving into this state from California. I can't stand those liberals, or the ones from the northeast!

It seems a lot of them move to the sunbelt though and far southern Missouri where it's more rural and milder. I hear the southern MO Ozarks are getting a lot of older people from Cali. I don't want MO to end up like where I lived in FL with a bunch of rude people from the northeast. KSHE knows what I'm talking about.

Money. If you notice cities with Democrat mayors and politicians have money problems.

Birmingham AL another example.

The city loses millions like the school system. same problem in DC with the Democrats making this country go broke. A Republican would be better with money.

Look at Missouri's financial woes when One Term Bob and Carnacrap was governor. When the Republicans got control of both houses and Blunt become governor the states finances really improved.

Hopefully the turnout is heavy and republicans keep their super majority in senate, and the house gains more, and Jay nixon is voted out.

Methinks you've never been to Kansas City or at least haven't explored much of it. It has just as much blight as St. Louis. Neither city is defined by it though, and many urbanites live in both happily.

Thanks for ruining this nice thread with political junk.

It does. Also you have to remember Stl is a much much older city. KC is a lot newer. 150 years ago KC was a small town with plantations. Not until the late 1800s did it boom so the infrastructure is nowhere near as old as St. Louis. Just seems less welfare leaches and crime there than what we deal with here.
