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.
the state you should be in is:
1. debt free
2. own land to grow food
3. guns and ammo
4. silver coins
5. a year of food
6. a skill that is useful
The UP would be a fine outpost if you’re capable of dealing with the cold winters.
When there is uncertainty, typically best place to be is on the ground you are most familiar with. Instead of moving why not contribute to the reduction of premeditated Obama meltdown? Sure there were events prior to Obama, but he is exacerbating and adding to them for his post America world.
Solution is not to move but grab the bull by the horns.
After building the hobby farm and with the results from the last election...I am sticking with Wisconsin...but will be ready to move if need be...probably to Texas.
Wherever your close family is.
If you are truly homeless and penniless a mild climate will help, so San Diego, California!
Few and easily bypassed...
Yes, I think you’re right. Any State that is self sustaining with energy is going to have the upper hand.
“How soon will we start seeing adverts to emigrate instead?”
Panama already does that.
Is that the State of Denial or the State of Confusion?
ping best states
bump to watch.....
Well said...working on the list...have most of them covered.
We are contemplating a move to Texas as well. i grew up in Ventura county, and have lived in San Diego county the past 16 years, but i think this last election sealed the deal. We have 11 acres in East Texas, though as we both work for the federal government, I suspect we’ll probably end up near San Antonio.
No, it wouldn't be smart to come South. If there is no electric you will die in this heat. Stay up North.
I’m looking at the town of Brookings, OR. Southwestern OR, still conservative, best weather and growing season in the state. Off the main refugee route and backed by a wilderness area. Small town but large enough to have the necessary amenities.
A good spot to go rural.
If I see one more Native Californian toy license plate in the rear window of an Idaho registered BMW or M-B, I may erupt with open range rage and go RFD postal.
the cold is something in Maine unless you're used to it, too. But as long as you can swing an ax, you'll have heat.
My main concern about the south is refugees streaming in from the north. Not that many will be heading to Maine or the UP of Michigan.
How about another question? Forget which state. Which country is the best choice to move to in an attempt to survive the impending economic meltdown? I’m seriously looking.
The pathetic thing about America is that we were number one, while our own government and our own corporations screwed us when it came to creating the soon to be the number one economy in the world.....COMMIE CHINA.
We can squabble about whether the unions did it, but in the end it was our own elected USA officials who made the trade rules that forced us to accept Chinese imports while China rejected ours, and it was our so-called USA companies that made the decision to outsource our jobs.
Every time I see the mega billionaires of Wall Street who sold us out making deals while they received hundreds of billions (actually TRILLIONS) as support from taxpayers it is infuriating.
America First - Tea Party First
A large enough lot to have a good size seasonal garden - and zoning that allows a few chickens.
Please don’t recommend Arkansas. It’s the pits here since Slick Willy, his beautiful missus, and the Huckster went to greener pastures. :0)
if i want to work without giving 66-75% of what i make to 0bummer and the dems for their buy-votes social programs... i may have to move to such a place
“I’ve been wondering the same thing.” ping to self
My bet is on Aroostook County, Maine.
. 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.
An yet they sent Dingy Harry back to the Senate.
“Which country is the best choice to move to in an attempt to survive the impending economic meltdown? Im seriously looking.”
It depends on your language skills. If it’s strictly English I’d suggest New Zealand. You’ll never exhaust the supply of cheap mutton and lamb.
Hey, we're all comin' for YOUR fishin' hole!
I’ll stay put here in Michigan.
We have good hunting, lots of fish, and plenty of fertile land for growing veggies.
It gets really cold in winter in some of the southern states, too. Here, in Tennessee, we still have to cut firewood and keep a woodstove available to be used in winter. Also, life without air conditioning in summer would be - - - whew!!!
North central Missouri.
I figure it would be an opportunity to teach my liberal cousins to take care of themselves. My grandmother still has her big ole house sitting on 5 acres of yard. Plenty of gardening room there. My most conservative sister lives near granny too so that helps.
I’ve got my half acrer here in a very conservative little town (Village) and can grow a considerable garden. I can raise some rabits and chickens for some of my meat.
