St. Charles County is pretty conservative (Republican). So you might consider looking there.

I know several Realtors in the area that share your conservative Christian values, and would be happy to give you a referral. You can contact me through Kingdom Inspections. (click on MO on the map.)

I'm so liberal that I tend to be conservative at times...;-) That said, I'd vote for Oakville for you. You can buy a lot of house, it's pretty conservative and it's safe. As far as the area as a whole, I'd say that we're pretty split along that 60/40 line mentioned elsewhere here. Which is the 60 and which side is the 40, I couldn't tell you...but that probably says something in and of itself, ya think?

Oh, and I happen to be a real estate agent too, so if you would like help finding a place, please feel free to drop me a line. Could make for some pretty interesting conversations when we're out looking! ;-)

Bob

St. Louis is conservative. The first poster has it correct. St. Louis county should be considered a part of St. Louis. Much higher population in the county and it is for the most part a conservative place. The city of St. Louis and other pockets are not conservative but the majority of the STL metro area is conservative, and depending on where you are coming from, very conservative in some opinions.

St. Louis is pretty conservative in my opinion. Especially,in the higher income burbs, those are some of the most radically conservative, religous-right communities I've even been to.

You definitely don't want Florisant for what you want or anything North of Grand & east of Shrewsberry. There are a couple of nice spots in the city limits but not too many. 300-40k gives you a lot of options around here. If you want to spend a little less yet still have a quiet area, might try something south of lemayferry. I think housing is pretty cheap down there.

You're joking, right? If St. Louis is so conservative, why did it vote for John Kerry over George Bush and President Clinton over Bob Dole?

The whole St. Louis metro area I've noticed is more liberal than conservative. Those who say St. Louis and its Illinois suburbs are conservative need only look at last election's results to prove otherwise. St. Louis has been a more blue city than a red one as far back as I can remember.

Well at the risk of having the moderator having us discuss this in the political forum, I would say that neither Bush nor Dole would ever be mistaken for former Senator Jesse Helms or current Senator Tom Coburn when it comes to conservative ideology.

In 1984, St. Louis County voted for Reagan over Mondale by a margin of about 307,000 to 173,000 (source: The World Almanac). Since then, a lot of conservatives have moved out of St. Louis County to neighboring counties and elsewhere. But the point is, conservatives aren't necessarily Republicans, and especially vice versa. Look at the Republicans, led by Bush, who tried to shove the latest amnesty bill down our throats.

Another point: in 1992, a lot of St. Louis County voters voted for Ross Perot so as to register their disgust with Bush 41's breaking his promise to not raise taxes, and to rebuke Bush 41 for all his "new world order" talk.
