I’ve grown up my whole life not feeling “right” about the country I was born in. I was never interested in US History and have always loved European History. I also knew I would live anywhere on earth (yes even in the hottest desert or coldest tundra) if 100% of the things I want politically/socially were met.
If the world were split by ideologies, would you live anywhere too?

i already livr in a different state than most friends/family. i wouldnt want to move further.
however one of my friends from high school moved from the US to Germany, and shes loves it there. everything from the school to the healthcare system is closer to her ideals.

That’s what I’m doing once I finish my bachelors- I can go to a top 10 University here, wouldn’t pass that up.

I love where I live. I couldn’t imagine living in any other country…or state for that matter.

I like where I live because of it’s variety.
I love being close to the mountains and to the beach.
I love being near my family.
I love living in a place where there are different sorts of people, but still a good amount who I can find common ground with. Though it does annoy me when 100% of the people in a given place are Mexican and speaking Spanish to me when I’m in a regular store–I feel like a minority a good amount of the time–but I guess that’s not always a bad thing.
I don’t think I would like to live somewhere where EVERYONE was different from me (like a serious .0005% minority), and I don’t know, I would have to have a lot more reasons than just politics to move to a new place. There’s always going to be something that you’d change, something that could be better or annoys me, that’s just life.
This thread reminds me of the song “Going to a Town” by Rufus Wainwright 🙂 you should check it out.

I could live anywhere and everywhere for a short period of time but I couldn’t live far away from my family (like, in another country) for an extended period. Being close to family and friends is WAY more important to me than any ideologies.

Where ever you go there will be people who do not see things the same way you do.

I used to go on vacation a lot with my parents when I was younger all over the world and no matter how beautiful or accomodating the country, I always missed the US and couldn’t wait to get back home. This is my home for better or worse!

I think I’m more interested in being around my friends and family than in finding some kind of utopia. I’d love to do more traveling, though!

@Gemstone: Me too.
I’m fairly well traveled for being 22 (although there is ALWAYS more to see!) but I am always so happy to come home to my friends and family – I typically don’t give a crap about the political ideology. I’ve been surprised to see several posts about people wanting to live in a “liberal” area – I’m sure FL isn’t the most liberal of places, but I’ve never had a problem with my views here so I’ve never taken it into account (and probably won’t start when I move, hopefully this summer!). If everyone thought like me, who would I discuss things with? Agreeance is boring 😛
