That's debatable, I'm sure, but they'll probably get re-elected in a landslide. I can see Arizona and other states going this way.

I like to use Bluer-Than-Blue New York as an example. A couple years ago the state passed the "SAFE" law requiring AR-15's and a long list of other weapons to be declared within a certain timeframe under penalty of law. This law was widely ignored to the point that one reporter remarked that "the people seem to have repealed the law on their own".
Thank God for that!!!

The house rents for $1700/mo., I saw it on Zillow.

My beef with them is that we live in Vail on a narrow street where there is no parking signs on their side of the street. The weeks they moved in there were tons of people and cars coming and going. I thought nothing of it but 3 weeks later same cars are coming and going. The front of my nice house has become a parking spot for an ugly 1982 Camaro, a Chevy trailblazer with a giant wreck on the rear end with peeling paint and newer Honda. They have 7 cars that I have seen coming and going. Some people in the house are Mexican but some are white. So...I think what is going on is these renters brought in extra people to supplement their income. We have strict rules about street parking "vehicles may not be street parked for more than 48 hours in a 7 day period." i.e. The idea is only visitors should be parked on the street. My neighborhood has few cars parked on the street since most houses have 3 car garages and 3 more outside parking spots. Their house happens to only have a 2.5 car garage which they put 7 gazillion moving boxes of crap into with no extra pad. So 2 cars park in the driveway then 3 park in front of my house and 1 parks in-front of my neighbor.

So I have never been a fan of Californians of any political persuasion. I had similar disputes in Portland and the first time I lived here. I'm beginning to think Californians are just so used to living 9 to a house cause that's the only way they can afford it in Cali that it just becomes modus operandi when they move somewhere else...

I need to stop being so poor so I can buy some acreage and not ever have to worry about neighbors again.
Are you sure you're not talking about New York?

That's exactly what happened where we used to live. Except the house next door was packed with illegal invaders from Ecuador. This was a single family house. Calls to code enforcement were futile.

Trump has done more good for this nation in 3 years than Biden and his cronies will every do in a 100 years (minus the 40+ years he has already been in politics). Facts.

Is 55+ Active Communities more conservative in Tucson then Phoenix area? Say Sun City West? We are open to both areas and will be moving to AZ this year, and would prefer a more conservative city then the one I live in Northern CA.

Knowing people in both Phx and Tuc 55+ communities, I would believe there considerably more conservative leaning in Sun City, Grand and all those retirement areas west of Phoenix. Tucson and even its elders seem to be much more liberal.

I live near Oro Valley, not uncommon to see Subarus with liberal bumper stickers driven around by old ladies around here.

But I'm friends with a few guys that live in Saddlebrooke and other 55+ communities around NW Tucson. I didn't invent the term, but think "Crunchy Conservatives". Conservative guys that care about their health, natural living, running, hiking, mountain biking and camping.

The pool of people that I know in the large 55+ communities tend to be people that were your stereotypical Rocky Mountain outdoorsman into skiing, mountain biking, hunting, fishing, etc... But tired of the cold weather in Colorado, Montana or other mountain states. Moved to Tucson to be active outside all year long.

As one of them joked to me, you retire to Tucson for the outdoors and retire to Phoenix to play golf. Different vibes to both areas that you may want to investigate.

Google Most Conservative Cities in the Country. Last time I checked Mesa was #1. Phoenix was a notch below Las Vegas as less conservative.

I grew up in one of the most liberal cities, Minneapolis (all but tied with San Francisco at the bottom of the list) and I moved out of conservative Las Vegas to Tucson, which I had heard was the Blue Island of the Southwest. I can actually Feel the liberalism here, and it feels oh so good!

With 90% of Phoenicians, at one time, approving of Arpaio, toughest sheriff in America, that should tell you something about Phoenix. Would that ever happen here in Tucson?????

Perhaps you should consider Las Vegas instead, and if you want more conservtisim, move to Henderson, where they'll pull over dangerous drivers driving 5 miles over the speed limit.
