Californians moved to some of the more scenic areas and drove prices out of this world.

Western Montana is more liberal than Central or Eastern.

I know many don't believe it, but Texas will start to swing this way in a decade or less. Increasing minority population and increasing urbanization, many coming from other urban areas.


As someone who lived in Houston and visited Dallas on the regular, along with a couple Austin, odessa and San Antonio visits, I don't see how Texas isn't already there. I think when the next few generations for off you will be exactly right. Oil money is the only thing keeping it red IMO...

They're like a plague of locusts. I'm afraid were going the way of Rome. They learned to vote themselves freebies, and turned over freedom for the perception of safety. It just sounds too familiar.

It's sad how history always repeats itself yet people never learn.

When the liberals gained control of the schools it was all over. The more populated and urban we get, the worse it will be.

I'm fighting development where I live for this very reason. We don't need more people, we have too many as it is. The more people move in, the more freedoms you will lose.

The big question is, will freedom go quietly with a whisper or will it eventually erupt into violence?

Probably go with a whisper. Only way it would erupt in violence is if they actually do come for the guns. People are too comfortable, too content to risk their lifestyle for idealism. Freedoms will slowly drop off one by one and most will not even take notice, or care as long as they feel secure.

Until we no longer have to pay to live, we are never truly free. You have to pay to be here. You have to pay to kill your food. You have to pay for your housing even if you own the land and build yourself. You have to build shite to their standards. You have to teach your kids what they tell you is important to know. They regulate what you can or can't sell a fellow man.

How free are we really? The most free are the most hidden. Alaska sounds really nice roger I've only been to anchorage once and loved it. My inlaws vacationed there and my BIL wants to go to college up there.

It's the most free place left in N. America, but even the cities are becoming more "civilized."

That said, I imagine there will still be places one can go to escape it all during my lifetime. It will be generations before it becomes tamed as well.

I'd love to, it's hard to convince a woman "nah baby, we don't need the best education and best things for our kids". Hell, I can't convince myself that. I hate thinking "I'd do this if I didn't have a family" bc The last thing I want is a life without them. But really, I would be perfectly content with living in the mountains in a small village. Posted up in a cabin with me and my dog. We really do get caught up in this world they have laid out for us and miss a ton of the god given beauty that's right in front of us. I hate that.

Whisper. Remember the frog slowly boiling in the pot.

We are on the downhill side boys. Enjoy your ride before the whole thing goes up in flames.

There are still towns and villages where you can live relatively free. Some great places around here, and I think Juneau is getting too big for me. Planning on moving to Haines, about 80 miles North of here by air or water.

Haines - Last Bastion of Small Town America

quote:

Haines is a quiet little harbor town of 2,400 souls. They’re mostly flannel-shirted fishermen, loggers, artists, retirees, and a sprinkle of gold miners, all sharing two things in common. They love the spectacular natural vista of fjord, forest, and mountain that greets them each morning when they open their curtains, and they have no desire to live the city life anymore. They’re here to get away from it all. Some might call them reclusive, and they’d be proud of this.

There’s no rush hour traffic in this isolated village and the residents all know each other, perhaps too well. But they’re genuine and friendly and look you in the face when they talk to you. Their hands are calloused hands from hours of hauling in heavy gillnets laden with struggling salmon, or working outdoors. Bears scavenge through garbage cans in back yards, and the occasional moose strolls through the streets. Visiting Haines is like time traveling back to the 1950’s, and, sadly, it’s not something you’re likely to see in the lower 48 anymore—it’s a remnant of America that has been lost to iPhones, MTV and urban sprawls.


It's the center of the outdoor universe, and an amazing town. I'm ready, just got to wait until the Mrs is ready too.

Here is Black Friday in Haines... LINK

Nah, I don't mind. I've done a lot of things to get by, make a living. Taught school, managed a division of a cruise line, been a guide, lobbyist, PR work, Sales, etc.

Living here is more important than making a fortune, I love the lifestyle and like most who stay here long term, do several things if needed to be able to stay.


I moved here sight unseen without a job, or place to stay. Moved my family because I knew life was better here, people were friendly and life was more free.

Raising my kids here was the best thing I could have done for them IMO, They've had experiences most kids never will. I just can't go outside for long because i feel smothered, rushed, and dislike what much of the US has become.

I've got a real passion for the natural world around here. I'm active with several conservation groups but this place captures my spirit like nothing else.

I can't have a bad day. If things aren't going well, I go out to the water, look at the mountains where there isn't a trace of man for 100's of miles and I' healed.

I saw this posted on facebook, by someone in Louisiana. I recognized it, just north of town here where I go kayaking. I thought it was perfect, and it's what many of us feel when we look to the mountains.



It's home, I feel free but think i'm getting restless and ready to move on to the next phase of my life here. Small town, AK.

Are you in the video?

"Shopping frenzy!!!"

that would be a perfect place for me. Unfortunately the wife is a lot harder to convince... I can barely get her far enough from her parents as it is now

That was/is my problem. I had her talked into moving up there. Even talked to a realtor, but she backed out. Wanted to stay close to her folks.
