    Hmm...try reading for content. Mentioning different countries predominantly dominated by black people and being racist are two different things.

    And my suggestion to move to Somalia was a joke--a joke that had nothing to do with black people.

    You wouldn't like NH. It shares a border with Massachusetts. There are lots of "Yankees", using your definition of the word in NH. Lots of younger families from Mass have bought houses in NH, because Mass is too expensive...and they commute back into Massachusetts for work.

    NH has gone for the Democrat in five out the last six Presidential elections.

    I haven't read all the posts but Clay County, FL is one of the most conservative counties in the entire country. It is in the northern part of the state so not an old folks area.

    I am not sure if that is "like-minded" for the OP, but perhaps. My dad live sin California and keeps threatening to move here because of the crazy laws and taxes they have out there.

    Wow. Talk about uninformed, narrow-minded, and un-American. I'm actually rather amused as you were just whining about mean, hateful people being insulting and now you're dropping bombs like that.

    I happen to be a very informed voter. During the last election, I was the only one in my area of the line who had actually printed out the ridiculously long ballot, done serious research on each and every proposed ammendment, straw ballot, candidate, etc. and was actually informed on the topics. I had to give a several hours long class on exactly what was on the ballot, what voting yes meant, what voting no meant, etc. I don't make my decisions based on party lines or talking heads--I actually use my own brain.

    This is very true! Clay is Putnam's next door neighbor. Even though the Clay County Fairgrounds kind of suck, they actually have a pretty good show scene. Much better than the GORGEOUS Jax Equestrian Center. But that is another story all together...

    But, you still don't know the fundamentals - you opposed the Patriot Act when Bush implemented it but you endorse it when Obama made it much, much stronger. What you feared Bush would do, Obama did, but you support that. You now support a President who has implemented NDAA and assumes the right to order the kiling of American citizens with his signature. You support the domestic use of drones. But you still think you oppose the Patriot Act? You think that Democrats support personal freedoms when they take them from Americans daily. If you wanted to beinformed you would be, but you aren't. America is a two-party system - it is about parties.

    OP, you seem bewildered that some posters, myself included, are making fun of the coded speech of racism.

We know it's the deep undercurrent of racism in this country to refuse to accept this duly elected President, to claim his fundamentally American story is somehow exotic and other.

    So when you who are well-known for espousing these beliefs want to know where you can live among like-minded people, people are going to want to know exactly what it is that you mean.

    I know you favor small government, no affirmative action, freedom from the tyranny of health care, yes, Haiti comes to mind.

    You don't want to live in Florida. Not only did Obama win Florida despite an organized effort to discourage people from exercising their right to vote, but the governor has embraced Obamacare.
    The racism in this thread comes from you. I suggest you take a course on tolerance. You are a racist whether you recognize it in yourself or not. Your Haiti comment was as racist as any comment I've seen in a long time - moreso than most. You should do some self examination on why you said that.

    You know that I didn't use the term "yankee" myself.

    I do wonder if NH is under siege as a target state. My state was targeted and there was a book written about the massive effort to overturn the will of the people who have lived here for generations and change the state from the free west to a oppressive liberal state. This has been accomplished in large part by voter fraud, accompanied by massive amounts of money from outside the state. It's rather shocking.

    I appreciate the helpful posts on this thread. I will look into the areas that you mention and some of the other information is helpful, also. I am not looking for like minded people, but as JSwan said, just a place where the government - just leaves you alone and lets you be yourself, however imperfect that may be. I'm not looking to move either, just for a vacation place. The laws that govern my neighbors and me are made by people who are not subject to the laws they vote in, and many don't actually even live in the state.

    I guess there are a lot of people who are lying in wait to bring extraneous discussion into simple threads. Too bad it was a trainwreck, but there is a tagteam group out there that does do that often.

    And then there are those who like to stir up $hitstorms and then point fingers elsewhere when they succeed in doing so.

    Well, if you don't like having the "will of the people" overturned, Idaho might not be the place for you.
    http://thebluereview.org/ignored-referendum/
    And I think the whole point being made by the older couple at the Food Truck Rally (the couple that was labeled "rude" by the OP) was that their native state had been changed from Libertarian-moderate politics to an oppressive conservative model.

    It would seem to me that if the whole point trying to be made is that oppressive political control is bad, then it is bad regardless of which political movement is driving the oppression. Liberal or conservative. As is overturning the will of the people, regardless of which party is doing it.

    Otherwise, this thread is nothing more than yet another, "Poor me, the bad, bad liberals are ruining everything and here are my code words to prove it" rant from the OP.

    Real Idahoans certainly don't want any more residents like the OP. We have enough of these Johnny-Come-Lately boneheads as it is. Maybe the OP should try Arizona?

    I just will never.ever.ever. understand this approach to anything you believe in, or worry about, or find concern with.
    But its the way everyone does it these days. This 'social networking', is slowly forming all of us to believe that 'expressing our political beliefs' is equal to BASHING SOMEONE ELSES. Seriously! SERIOUSLY? when did taking a stand, or having an opinion equate to making fun, nasty, glib remarks about someone elses?
    Every 'political' statement I see on FB is an ugly slur with a half truth caption and expressive but often not associated directly photo attached. Its ALWAYS about the other guy. Its ALWAYS negative.
    Op....you TITLED this as something you were already negative about....you didn't say: here is what I believe in, and am positive about, and how and where I want to share and live.....you started it as: Here's why / where I wouldn't want to live. This type of person is against my rights. Uh...? really? Do you think that person of that persuasion sees it that way? Do you think that conservative always wants directly to smother rights?
    I just don't get it. But....NO doubt....because of our current backward 'expressions' of 'politics' (which again....SAVE me from anyone 'posting' political stances that have NOTHING to do with what they personally believe in, but just want to sneer and poke fun at someone elses) ........this is the current way we throw a wall up from the get go...and make sure we pi$$ SOMEONE off first, so no one can get anywhere.

The area has an amazing STD issue for what one would expect from "old white conservatives", lol, and the gathering information on partners can be quite...lengthy. Definitely one sin they don't mind breaking.

    Well, Coyoteco, aren't you a special little snowflake.

    I know all about the drone issues. I do support the president's ability to take out al Queda operatives, and I'm sure you would too if it was a Republican in office instead of a Democrat. I have a relative who works in the drone program, and it's not like they're all sitting around looking for American citizens to blow up.

    Like I mentioned before, I don't vote strictly along party lines. Yes, America IS a two-party system, and I do not hate either party because we are all Americans.
