I live in Texas, in a city of 270,000. We have one of the lowest crime rates in the country, many city amenities, great schools and parks. We as a city have eliminated the dumb cops by requiring all police officer to have a baccalaureate degree. We are the second most conservative city in the country following Provo, UT. As a city, we are very diverse with many educated foreign immigrants. We have many very large Churches of various denominations, Synagogues and Muslim Temples.
The population is educated and wealthy but our property taxes are very high. In my circle friends we pay from the lowest $6,500 to $24,000 annually. This is a great community if not for the very hot summers. My pool is hotter than the showers I take. We are under constant water restrictions.
You will never find a dirty industry or heavy manufacturing nearby, we love our clean air. That said I’m thinking about moving to California or Oregon, I just came back from a six week vacation visiting both.

Hollywood has ruin the american culture, people want the same lifestyles that their star actors or actress have. The gun is an american toy, killing is the way of life. There is no God, and money is all that matters. Racism is the norm, lying, and stealing is the way to winning. The pro athletes tell us to only play for the big money, use steroids, and commit adultery. This is what American life is all about. Do whatever you want, as long as it feels good to you. "Lose your virginity, be gay & happy, whatever makes you feel good." Stealing is ok, just don't get caught, we are a society obsessed with hatred, money, and power. This is the land of Hell, welcome to happiness.
