What Is The Best U.S. State To Move To Insulate Yourself From The Coming Economic Meltdown?

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.

True, but it's going to be easier living where you can soot a deer when you need one without attracting too much attention. Let's face it; the criminals, the lazy and those unused to it will not migrate to where it's cold. The South will be full of refugees from the weather in an economic collapse.

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.

For years there have been adverts from forgien countries to come and spend a vacation with them. How soon will we start seeing adverts to emigrate instead?

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.

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.

I've studied this topic quite a bit and have concluded that the states of Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Arkansas are very good candidates. This is based on the criteria of agricultural potential and population distribution.

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.

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.

Just sayin....

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

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.

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.

Scratch Idaho. We have mosquitoes the size of turkeys, bears and wolves eating school children every day, and Larry Craig still has the highest name recognition of any politician in the state. It is terrible here. Trust me, tough it out in Califa, you will be fine.

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.

Sounds good, but California refugees would concern me.

My bet is on Aroostook County, Maine.

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.

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!!!

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.
