I am not going to say anything about MO and the bible belt, but NWA isn't all that bible belt either. Many who live here work for major companies or have moved here from other places. We do not wear our religion on our sleeve, as for conservatives, did the Op mention not wanting to live near conservatives? Maybe I missed that part...

As a liberal Christian, I take offense to the "screwball liberals" comment. I'm a liberal and I'm not a screwball. Neither is my husband, my best friend, my father, or my mother, thank you very much.

Honestly I don't think Lincoln needs any more bible-belt pushing screwball conservatives.
We're perfectly fine being half red and half blue in this city. We're melting together to make a nice purple color actually.

I am at the other side of the fence but I agree with you, I don't like your comment about bible-pushing screwball conservatives. You take offense at someone using the term "screwball lberals" but then turn around and say it to the conservaitves.

Now, yes a balance is good, as for name calling, on either part, I find it not only insulting but more, very childish. We did that in elementary school, not as adults.

Default Springfield

Wow. With your judgemental comments and desires, you will fit right in
in Springfield. I have lived in both cities and Springfield is the belt buckle of the bible belt. Enjoy, however, neither will absolutely fit what you are trying to get away from.

We need something with modern hospitals and services and decent wages, but without the extremes of the big cities. We're looking for a place where being hard-working, honest, and fundamentally decent doesn't put you in the minority.

We've been looking in different areas and two places we've come across that seem to fit this criteria are Lincoln, NE, and Springfield, MO. Both seem like nice cities.

What we wanted to know is which the better city to live in? Which has lower crime, better opportunities, better housing prices, etc... What are each city's good points and bad points? What are the differences and which would you live in if you had a choice?

Also, are there any other cities you would suggest that might fit what we're looking for?

Any suggestions, advice, or ideas are greatly appreciated. We just want to find someplace to live in that's like the way America used to be.

HAHA I HATE Lincoln.... the jails are over populated! police here do what ever they ****ing feel like doing! just like missouri... go on vacation and leave on probation! the only nice thing about lincoln is the fact that reefer has been de criminalized. otherwise... the job market sucks in lincoln! the crime rate is rediculious! METH is everywhere! hmmm.... what else can I tell ya about lincoln! they are quick to offer felony charges! if you wanna be a COP... their are plenty of jobs! Lincoln's population is per capita... the largest cop city I have ever been in... YES PLEASE MOVE TO LINCOLN.... the place that wants to put you in jail for defending your self! I was jumped by 3 guys... one got hurt by me as I was defending my self.... and WHO goes to jail? the man defending himself! I would choose springfield...BUT they are even worse than lincoln when it comes to vacation and probation! My family owns a 1200 acre farm near springfield!

Hmmm...neither, I would chose Northwest Arkansas, like Bentonville, Rogers or Fayetteville...even Bella Vista is great. Better scenery, better weather, a variety of things to do, very friendly people. Southern MO is not as nice as Northwest Arkansas.
