Alright ladies and gentlemen, thanks for reading to start, I was hoping you could help me out with suggestions as to where you think best fits my needs. If somebody has experiences outside the state, although still in the west, that you feel would fit me well too, then please do mention them as well.

Size: Preferably under 25,000. All's I need is a few stores and being within 1-2 hours of a bigger town with all the other amenities is fine.

Politics: Very conservative.

Weather: Not a concern.

Other: I would prefer to be in an area where I am able to attain digital cable and the internet. I would imagine these companies have stretched to most of the state though, I hope?

Job market: Preferably a solid and rising job market.

Landscape: Western MT in the mountains would be best, but even stretching out close to the middle just to have a glimpse of the mountains is good enough if everything else fits. And for some reason I find that the mountains seem to attract the liberals, tsk.

Thanks y'all.

Try Belgrade, Manhattan, Three Forks, Townsend, Philipsburg, White Sulphur Springs, Elliston, Ronan (the lovely Representative Rick Jore of the Constitution Party is from Ronan), Livingston, or Libby. All are small towns that are relatively close to larger ones such as Missoula, Helena, and Bozeman. Even though Butte is large, the shopping sucks and it's full of commies (literally, Butte's elected socialists to the mayor's office before).

Of all the towns I listed, I'd like Ronan the best. Absolutely stunning views of the Mission Mountains while being conservative enough to elect the Constitution Party (far-right, more conservative than the Republican Party) to the State Legislature. In Ronan, they don't debate public school funding levels. They debate whether or not public schools should exist at all Highly suggested.

Great Falls has my pick. It's still affordable to live there, you can shop 'til you drop, can still see the mountains and the area is very lovely. The river goes right through town which is really cool! I plan on moving there for schoo. Good luck and God bless!

Look at Montrose, CO. It is in the western part of Co about 60 miles south of Grand Junction. It is conservative but slipping as more liberal move in. Housing is more affordable than in most areas of MT. It has mountains on all sides. Very pretty location with lots of mountain access.

Good luck with your search.

If you want a small homey feeling town, Plains, in sanders county is a nice little place.

I'd recommend the Polson area due to it being so close to the lake & with the great views of the missions. Having grown up in MT it is still one of the nicest places & smack dab in between of Kalispell & Missoula so you get to pick which way to drive to go to the stores....

I would go with somewhere else, this place is not going to suit your needs.
