Hello

Thank you for your time, my concerns are

-home schooling (some states are passing bills to make it illegal)

-The threat of the New Madrid fault line

-Anti-Militia laws (i am pro milita)
I believe in the new world order, there is too much evidence not to. They have been saying it on national TV for the last 50 yrs. The proof is there.

-Out here they are trying to shut down small farms. Are they doing any of that there? Having a small farm has been my dream since I was a little girl

-I know work is hard to come by, but I also know how to live on next to nothing and have been a penny pinching anti-materialist type for many years.
I do think there are some low paying health care jobs still out there...AM I right??




Other than that, to be honest I love everything about small town MO. I fell in love with it instantly, I have lived all over...moved 8 times in the last 12 years. I am a country girl, through and through.
My father passed away three years ago and one year prior he met his paternal mother. Well she has a house out there in Salem, and I knew I wanted her in my life the moment I knew her name. There's been a hole in my heart every day I haven't seen her loving face. I go down there to visit, but just thinking of seeing her weekly brings me to tears. When I look at her I just know she is where I should be. Thanks again for your time, I know it's precious and I appreciate it much. I have no real family left so this helps alot.

First and foremost, welcome to the forum, and also (if your plans work out) to Missouri, especially to indeed a great area. I've lived and explored much in the Rolla/Salem areas, and do miss that region... good people and land.

To your questions / concerns...
1. Home schooling should not be any problem
2. When [not if] the New Madrid fault finally breaks free and rattles that area, and given the estimated release of energy, the "hit" in the Rolla/Salem area should be minimum... check out following as a start - there are many other threads about this topic w/in our forum, and pages on the net:
Missouri Earthquake Preparedness 2011
Facts about the New Madrid Seismic Zone - DNR
3. Anti-militia laws... ummmm, not sure what laws there may be, but in this area, a person should be relatively free to do just about anything [within reason of course] on their own land as they desire.
4. Small farms - nobody to my knowledge are shutting down small farms... they are going extinct more due to ppl not wanting to farm, developers buying out the land, etc. BTW, that area has a few pockets of good and even very good farm land, but as you may have seen is mainly filled with rocks and scrubs and rocks and oaks and rocks and other roughness.
5. Job opportunities indeed will be a challenge... but with perseverance and talent and luck [right place, right time] and desire, you have chance.

Good luck.

Oh thank you for the reply! Yes, up here like in California they are literally shutting farms down...for selling raw milk...to people who want to buy raw milk. My grandma has 22 acres of which she uses half for hay so a small farm would hopefully be with her someday. You made my day by replying. Much thanks (^_^)

Another area you might consider, just to the north of the area in which you have indicated interest, is around Linn and Gerald Missouri (see E. of Jefferson City along Hwy 50). It is situated such that one could easily commute to work in Jeff City or even St. Louis (though a harder commute). There are areas back there that look as though Daniel Boone passed through the week before. Little homesteads cut out of the deep woods. Good access to streams and the Gasconade River for fishing and recreation.

Most of the anti-gun folks, legislatively speaking, are located in the major cities of Kansas City, St. Louis, Columbia, and Springfield; otherwise, Missouri is very firearms friendly. We have several ammunition/reloading manufacturers, at least three firearms manufacturers, and of course, Midway USA and the Potterfield family! Missouri has been a "shall issue" CCW state since 2004. The state NRA affiliate can be located here: http://missourisportshooting.org/

A recent article on raw milk sales in Missouri: http://www.fox2now.com/news/ktvi-raw-milk-sales-find-a-niche-20110302,0,2820378.story (broken link)

To the best of my knowledge there are not "anti-militia" laws in Missouri. Missouri has a militia and they usually have a booth at the gun shows. Their website is here: http://www.missourimilitia.com/

I'm not one to welcome anyone to Missouri, especially to Phelps or surrounding counties, but if somebody's got to move here, let it be someone with your philosophies, attitudes and beliefs. We need more like you to help us even out the Califoreigners who are moving in.

You'd especially like Salem. You'd do all right in Rolla, though. We have lots of homeschoolers, gun owners. There are some folks who fret about the New World Order, but most don't and laugh at those who do. I don't have an opinion; I just want to make sure I can keep my guns and keep the price of ammo at a reasonable level.

The New Madrid Fault line is the least of our worries. Tornadoes tear more stuff up than earthquakes.

All the rest of the stuff on your list: you'd like it here.

I forgot to add: If you want to work, you can work. The liberals claim there aren't enough jobs. Heck, I've got two of them. You can find a job at a nursing home today and start tomorrow. I did four years ago, and then found another job and left the nursing home job for someone else. I've lived in Missouri all my life and never been unemployed. It is a blessing to live here and trust in the Lord.
