"Socially conservative" and "easy to relocate too" are an oxymoron

If states like Georgia, Kansas and Utah are not conservative enough for you than be prepared to say good buy to life in the developed world.

Somewhere poor and resource needy. Maybe one of the island nations.

Chile is probably the most conservative country in the Americas, south of the US border.

Chile is fairly easy to get a resident alien card, but you have to prove that you have enough income that you won't depend upon the local economy (You have to have income from elsewhere)

I don't think Chile is a cheap place to live. Real estate is high, taxes are pretty high, cars and gasoline are high, food might be marginally cheaper if you only buy local and cook from scratch. Wages are low.

There is culture of theft in Chile. If it is not nailed down well enough that it can't be pried up, it is OK to take it. I know people in Chile who never leave the house for any reason until the housekeeper arrives in the morning. Empty houses get robbed and that is just something that everyone understands to be part of life.

The government knows everything that you do. There is a number assigned to you that you must use for absolutely every transaction in your life. Maybe not what OP is hoping for.

OP, there is an All Chile forum if you want to hear that people who live there say about the country.

I don't know if anywhere that is cheaper than the USA, that is also safe and where you can have a comfortable standard of living.

I bet he'd like it in Iran, before the US and Israeli governments take action to "liberalize" that lovely bastion of conservatism. Or North Korea -- how's that for conservative. Or maybe he wants Libertarian, like Somalia, where is no government to push you around, everybody has a gun, and there are no laws to speak of.

OP's main concern is tolerance of homosexuality (he's against it). He seeks a 100% gay-free environment, lest his children ever be exposed to the horrifying sight of a woman giving her wife a peck on the cheek.

In the Americas, that pretty much limits him to certain former -- and indeed current -- British Caribbean colonies such as Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Belize, Guyana, and a few of the Windward Islands.

I cant understand the notion of homophobia one presents protein to ones sex at the cost of low blood pressure (I pleasure myself call me a narcicist) where as when its the other way around well it does not matter how much of a mastery you have over nature hunger is the only catalyst which is not the point of the thread but I saw the above posters remarks and felt like sharing my world view about the thread to maintain a hate this adjective by the way trendy/zingy society nations are built so
if you are after a quick buck a new nation after all it is new yet you will be newer hence the land of oppurtunity for the conservative try european nations especially well of ones with high populations

I don't understand homophobia, i don't know exactly but i'm pretty sure no more than 5 percent of Americans are gay.

I doubt op is threatening to move outside of the United States because he doesn't want to be around the few gays there are here.
