Considering Relocating? Think about Colorado Springs…
Outside Magazine ^ | 7/29/2009 | self

Posted on 07/29/2009 2:03:41 PM PDT by ChinaGotTheGoodsOnClinton

Outside Magazine just ranking Colorado Springs as the best place to live.

http://outside.away.com/outside/destinations/200908/best-towns-america-colorado-springs.html

Outside Magazine lists as a drawback that it might be get this TOO CONSERVATIVE for some people.

As you know, Money Magazine consistently usually ranks it number 1 as well. http://www.ownyourownmountain.com/artman/publish/Gazette_Telegraph_Article.html

I f you or a CONSERVATIVE person is considering relocating, I’d invite you to tell them about this family values oasis. I’d personally suggest Northern Colorado Springs as being the best and the most conservative. And just to lay my cards on the table, I am not in the Real Estate business and make nothing off anyone moving here. I just know that Soros and others have dumped millions into Colorado and have succeeding in taking over the state government for the first time in decades recently.

The Springs loses out to Denver and Boulder in the state elections but it is still close enough to make a difference.

Pass this along.

Or, strategically, move into the 7th Congressional District, where, with a relatively small bump in numbers we could take back the seat!

I’ve been there on vacation (from Indiana).
It’s a wonderful place.
Traffic was pretty bad, but that’s the price you pay for popularity.

So, there will be an enclave of freedom in Colorado?

Fire up the invisibility screen!

Colorado where:

They want to tax you on captured rain water and if you have a solar panel providing power to your house and are hooked into the power grid to put unused power back into it, the power company wants to charge you a fee ......

Could it be that it’s conservative nature is WHAT MAKES IT ATTRACTIVE?

Wow, if they think that’s a “too conservative area”, they’d go into hysterics if they were suddenly dropped here in KY (well, most aywhere except Louisville...).

OK, so most are political morons, but personally and socially, nicely conservative. If I could only get these people to put the two together...

Colorado SPrings? You must be kidding! Even though it has Ft Carson, the A.F. Academy, and Peterson A.F. Base located there, it’s as liberal as Boulder.

And put that against what we do here in Fairbanks. It people want to produce their own power and sell it, then we will actually pay them for it! We are conservative and want people to actually do better for.......THEMSELVES!!!!

After many years traveling across the US and overseas, I came back to Colorado Springs 11 years ago. It is a conservative enclave in what is generally a liberal state. I love it here. It is really a great place if you are conservative.

TO ALL:

I didn’t make the Outside or the Money ranking, I am just reporting it!

Also check this out:

“Currently, Democrats are in control of both chambers of the General Assembly. The 64th Colorado General Assembly is the first to be controlled by the Democrats in FORTY YEARS.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_and_Government_of_Colorado

So say what you want, until recently CO was as pubbie as CA was ‘RAT infested and for a longer span of time.

That is what I mean by let the Soros millions be spent in vain.

Thank you.

I didn’t realize this was such a touchy topic!

I appreciate your kind words.

I tried the Springs back in the late 70s. Felt like I was living on a prarie, with a sometimes nice view. (which sold at a premium, if your potential home/apartment had a view of Pike’s Peak.)
