    Wow I think you may need to re-read my posts or brush up on your reading comprehension. you bet.....anyone is absolutely free to move wherever they would like. Just boggles the mind and I don't understand why anyone would want to move someplace and be around people with such differing viewpoints. That's all I am saying. It's a head scratcher for me.

    Didn't insist anything as to how Californians run their state. It's simply 180 degrees from anything the majority of Idahoans want anything to do with. And yes, if they continue to infest us at the rate they have been, they will "take over".

    Nauga,

    yank my chain all you want. Help me understand why anyone would want to move to a state (or anywhere) that is what it is because of beliefs that are directly opposite of the Sh**hole they are leaving?

    yikes. Guess the language of cultural grievance is alive and well up in here.

    The adherence to the notion a place should remain culturally and politically static because "I wAs hEre fIrSt" is a swan song. A living anachronism.

    I'll let the great American poet Carl Sandburg, someone whose sentiments and life ideals very much parallel/track my own (and who ironically, was part of the invasion force of my native home), make the point for me:

    From "The People, Yes"

    "Get off this estate."
    "What for?"
    "Because it's mine."
    "Where did you get it?"
    "From my father."
    "Where did he get it?"
    "From his father."
    "And where did he get it?"
    "He fought for it."
    "Well, I'll fight you for it."

    :D

    Having owned homes in three different states, that doesn’t sound much different than I’ve experienced in each of those states.

    We’ve got seven different entities being collected by two different assessors. Since this is a homestead, our annual appraisal is limited to a maximum of 10% increase over the previous year and a 3.5% mill rate increase.

    While my property taxes may seem high compared to other states, we have no personal income tax and my total burden here is less than the other two states we lived in that had both property and income taxes.

    I dont find those generic lists terribly helpful. As heterogenous as states are internally, statewide pronouncements on 'healthcare' or 'affordability' are near meaningless. And whether other people are obese has very little bearing on how your own health will fare if you moved there. Its not like people automatically lose weight if they move to Colorado. There are of course statewide factors to consider, mostly income tax considerations. Property taxes (and values) are so vastly different that 'this vs. that' comparisons on a state by state basis mean very little. Just to pick Virginia as an example, you can live in McLean and you can live in a holler in coal country, its all the same ranking on those lists.

    I never understood the need to escape the disaster created in the place you need to escape from, only to try to make the new place into the disaster you had to escape from. It has happened here. Sad, but true.

    You are not alone on the sentiment. How many people do you know from a red state that are planning on retiring to a blue state? I've never heard of any...
