tntgoodwin Posted February 8, 2012 Share Posted February 8, 2012 (edited) I had been thinking Colorado Springs, and I still like it, but tonight's caucus results have me leaning away from wanting to live there. :glare: Politics is a big deal since I hope to run for office someday. So, I figured I would seek out the varied experience and wisdom of the hive to see what you all recommend! So, what we are looking for: -Population: 200,000 was a bit too small (Amarillo), and 1 million is too crowded (Honolulu)...so 400,000 to 500,000 would probably do well. -Plenty of ex-military families would be good, so maybe something near a military base, a city with a healthy defense industry connection would be ideal. This would help with me getting a good job. -We are a (relatively) large, young family... so it would be helpful for that to be fairly common-place. We homeschool and my wife stays at home with the kids. However, if we were to live somewhere with good quality schools, we would have no problem putting them in one. -Would like the cost-of-living to be below the national average, and household income to be above the national average. -Weather- prefer it to not be too cold. No harsh winters. Also, would like to stay away from hurricane heavy areas. Also, would prefer a dry heat over humidity. -Religions- would need a place with a lot of healthy churches, lots of evangelical Protestants. Megachurches are great with us, especially if they are Reformed/Calvinist. (an Acts 29 or The Gospel Coalition affiliated church would be great to have!) -Politics - I would LOVE to live in a swing state, so I could feel like my vote matters. We lean very libertarian, so that would be helpful to find. Any ideas? Edited February 8, 2012 by tntgoodwin Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
