Now ask yourself are these four persuasions of humans really diverse at all?

Ladera Ranch voted 52% for Trump and 42% for Clinton and 6% for other candidates, mostly right leaning Gary Johnson voters. Given the vote margin, it looks like Ladera Ranch voted about the same as the state of South Carolina in the 2016 election. If you don't like the politics of South Carolina, then Ladera Ranch may not be the place for you.

As a minority you can live in any place in OC. No one will bother you because you are not White.

I think the question is, will the original poster bother people if they don't share the same opinions as him. Maybe he should state how many white people are acceptable in his neighborhood. Is 75% okay? Is 50% okay? Is 25% okay?

OP is seeking a community of like-minded non-white people who openly hate whites.

This doesn’t really exist anywhere in south Orange County.

After ten years living full time on Kauai Island, we moved back to Socal five years ago and selected the Dana Point Area and South County for our new home. There many, many great places to live in south county.

We wanted to be walking distance to the beach, have great hiking trails, have nice neighbors, and have some amenities like a fitness center, swimming pool, jacuzzi, and the tennis court even tho we do not play tennis many of our friends do.

At no time, did we ask about how people voted.

We love it here, and we love Dana Point Harbor, and the restaurants and bars and boats. We also very much enjoy our
sister cities of San Juan Capistrano, and San Clemente, and the many trails and parks throughout South County.

There are marvelous areas all around us, and inland, but we preferred the beach lifestyle.

We love meeting the people here, many times total strangers, and talk story about all kinds of things and we generally have something in common. For the most part, where we frequent, the people we meet have aloha , and don't even know it. How great is that !

We make our own good time, and maintain positive, friendly and respectful attitudes.

Now, we also thought of returning to Seal Beach, where Erica lived before we gave it all away and moved to our beloved island, But, we did not want to have the traffic situation that can be a beast to get anywhere from there. However, we stop in Seal for lunch and cocktails everytime after I finish an appointment at the Long Beach VA.

Dana Point, is just perfect for us, and we can roam far and wide as D.P, makes a good base.

We have a wide range of all kinds of people where we live, and most everyone makes friends , and we all just meld into
a happy area. No one has ever asked us about politics..... We just take care of us, vote from home, and that is that.

I don't even know what the heck MAGA is, and frankly do not care. What is important to us, is what is in your heart, and mind, your interesting experiences, respect factor for everyone, big smiles, and positive life sytle, and let life flow.

Does that happen all of the time, of course not, but somehow, we generally wind up meeting pretty wonderful people.

Life is good, Life is an adventure, and friendship is precious cargo.

Denny and Erica

My wife and I are a mixed family. I'm ultra conservative, and she just conservative. Nobody bothers us.

Who would even know their neighbors politics, something we don't normally talk about. The original poster must be from some insane cult following politically nuts area.
