>>>Texas. See you there.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.

More importantly, though:

Milton Friedman once said that the U.S. became a strange sort of democracy because it rested on special-interest groups. The special-interest group is the real political unit, not the individual. If this is so, then it makes sense that conservatives should coalesce, not just online, but geographically. I know it’s impractical (it certainly is for me at the moment) but we should all be figuring out ways that we can live closer together; the idea of many of us moving to Texas is not so silly. While it’s fantastic that we can all communicate via the Internet and other forms of digital technology, that doesn’t help us create a political-unit.

I think Idaho would be more ideal.

We have. Look at the map. The entire center of the nation (except for NM & CO) and the south eastern quadrant (except FL) are conservative.
