That's up for debate. One thing you can't ignore though is that most people on this forum tend to lean to the left of center, so "liberal" to them is a positive term. For me, I prefer an area full of moderates, such as my own, where people are all registered Democrat and vote as such but have Republican mindsets as well. I like to be "dead-center."
I thought most people on this forum leaned moderate to conservative? I'm usually right in the middle but I'd rather live in an area of conservatives than an area of liberals (no offense intended, just my personal preference).

How it Dallas dirty and boring? It's much cleaner than many other cities on that list.

How exactly can you say Minneapolis is expensive? I mean the median home price is just a tad above the national average?
