Posted on 11/14/2010 3:59:04 PM PST by GiovannaNicoletta
As the economy continues to crumble and as millions of Americans find it nearly impossible to find a good job, many of them have been wondering if things are any better in other parts of the country. And without a doubt, some areas of the U.S. are complete and total disaster zones at this point. For example, so many houses have been abandoned in Detroit that the mayor has proposed bulldozing one-fourth of the city. In Las Vegas, it was estimated that approximately 65 percent of all homes with a mortgage were "underwater" at the height of the housing crash. The number of people unemployed in the state of California is approximately equal to the populations of Nevada, New Hampshire and Vermont combined.

Probably none of them really. State lines aren’t going to interfere with a real economic meltdown.
It’s in one of Odumbo’s “57” states..
Against a Federal collapse - nowhere... Against a collapse by several States - North Dakota and Texas...
The list they have I did not see Texas
I would suggest, if you have the experience and ability, living in states like Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, northern Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota, Wyoming , Montana, Idaho and Alaska.
The great state of Uruguay!;-)
I think you are correct in ND and TX cause they have energy. I think states with energy and food will do the best. Blame idiots who watch TV for empower Obama and the left to destroy America. If you watch TV - you helped.
Yeah I’m staying here in Michigan where we’re used to hardship.
I am moving from California to Texas next year about this time (a little earlier to avoid the rains).
By that time my house will be paid off and I can sell it still for much more than I paid for it (even in today’s market). My note has such a small APR that to do so too soon doesn’t make sense.
I was born and raised in California and will miss the state of my birth. We have everything — desert, beach, mountains, blue skies and temperate weather year around (yes, the occasional temblor but wth).
Texas is my choice because I travel across the country for a living and it is centrally located with one of the largest airports in the country in DFW. They of course don’t have income tax and I am pretty sure the marginal tax rate is a lot less than California.
Also, Texas isn’t insane like California is.
One with small islands that are hard to get to.
NC!HUH!Tax robbery state just like Ma.
I spent a lot of my life in Maine and New Brunswick. Still have some family in Maine; Aroostook County may be a good place to ride it out.
I recommend that you don't plan on getting too isolated, but rather becoming part of an established community that doesn't have a large government-dependent population (of course some degree of government dependence will be found anywhere).
Also it's a good idea to get relocated there before the need arises, if possible.
I'll Freepmail you with more details that you may find helpful.
Avoid the toll roads in TX.That’s the states cash cow.
Tennessee - lots of rural areas - good farming, good hunting - inexpensive property - moderate winters which I think would be a big factor in a meltdown. Good people, that are pretty self-sufficient and conservative.
