Outside Magazine just ranking Colorado Springs as the best place to live.
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, Id invite you to tell them about this family values oasis. Id 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!
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 has Falcon AFB and the USAF Academy. Many retired military in that city as well.
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!!!!
Lived there from 1981-2001...Moved to Florida,,,to many people in Colorado Springs for me....If you move Academy school district is great,,,I would move to Montrose Colorado...
I love Colorado Springs.
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.”
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.
If it wasn’t for the winters and mosquito’s the size of hummingbirds I wouldn’t mind going up there ... be a bush pilot ...
I have lived here for 9 years - and I love it. I have lived all over the world: Germany, Viet Nam, Australia, East Coast, West Coast, MidWest...it is still the best!!!
Is Falcon AFB a new one? ... it must be at the Academy .....always wanted to go to either the AF or Navy academy ...
Oh’ it’s not that bad! All you have to be is prepared and get through January and February, and you are in heaven on earth.
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.)
