Check out Orlando and all of it suburbs, or Tampa and all of its suburbs.

Do you work at an iBank or at a brokerage? Wall Street? If so, and you desire to stay in that sector, you probably should stay in NYC. Maybe some jobs in Chicago, LA or San Francisco, but those are not exactly bastions of liberty either.

Eh, depends...I now work for one of the world's largest financial institutions, through years of working at my small little options trading firm..over the years we got bought by company X, then sold to company Y, and finally I find myself at company Z....

I was based out of around NYC, but when the opportunity came to move out to the tundra here to work in my division's main office in MPLS, I jumped on it faster than a martyr on a grenade.

Yep, I still slog on trading floors and get to yell at people in the tech sector, but I'm not in or near NYC anymore. Eventually I'll probably have to go back, but with the proliferation of electronic exchanges and such, other than having a presence on the physical exchanges...a company could be based anywhere these days, provided they have the provisioning for all the data lines needed.

It's really very nice here. But you do have to like cold weather because it gets chilly here in the winter. You can't have a loaded rifle in your car so I put together an AR pistol.

I' ve been working for hedgefunds for the last five years.... I work primarily in the back office with operations, accounting, and compliance groups.

My long term goal is to go to law school once my back is healed... but for now I'd like to do the same or similiar thing. That being said I'd like to move to a free state before I settle down... It would suck to meet someone up here and then decide to move. I love NY... but I hate the libs here... it is also getting so expensive... example: my uncle pays about 18,000 dollars in property tax each year. his mortgage has been paid off for 15 years...

I could never afford that

Virginia (well except for the top upper right hand part) is nice. Tennessee has a good climate (littel warm for me) and no state income tax, although I don't know that it is crawling with honies, there are good looking women there and (as anonymous someone pointed out to me in SC) "What's up with this place? The girls are thin and in good shape and the guys are fat lobs of goo!"




Stay the hell out of Tennessee, we are full.

Tennessee is a great state to live in, I recently moved back here from Florida as I wanted to give my daughter the same opportunity to grow up in a great place like I did. The people here are very friendly and southern hospitality is the norm in these parts. The state is definitely a free one, there are a lot of gun enthusiasts/hunters here, the gun laws are pretty lax, if you apply for a CCP you automatically qualify unless you have a felony on your record.

There's tons of things to do here, whether visiting one of the countries largest malls, going to festivals, or attending concerts at one of the local wineries, we have scores of Breweries and Pubs. Tennessee has a pretty unique culture too, few other places have as much to offer in the way of music, food, festivals, and cultural activities while remaining as down to earth as it is here. The real fun (IMO) is all of the recreational things there are to do in the outdoors, if TN is anything, it's a very outdoors oriented state. We have a bit of everything with handgliding, caving, white water rafting, canoing, horseback riding, camping, fishing, hunting, you name it.

The economical aspect of living here is pretty good as well. We have low taxes, no state income tax, the cost of living is low, and the pay is good, significantly better than Florida. There's a great job market here, in fact one month after moving here I had several great job offers right out of college and with limited experience in my field. This area (Nashville) is known for the vast amount of medical and health care companies in this area, and there's no end to all of the IT jobs they supply, many of them would doubtlessly need finanical software developed.

Speaking of which... if you or anyone else here would be interested in a job in software development designing Internet and IPOS applications In PERL, my company is currently looking to fill a few positions. The pay and benefits are really good, the boss is great as are the people, and it's a great place to work.

Oh, and Aimless wasn't lying about the women.

North Louisiana is not too bad, money goes alot farther here. We have no gun laws that are not federal. However in your age range nearly all sain wemon available have kids. Jobs arew not hard to find start the application process and let opportunity decide. A nice 3bed house will run $90,000-150,000, nieghborhoods do not seem to intergrate so property value stays constant for the most part. Avoid south Louisiana like a plague though. Texas would be nice particularly on the edges of the Metroplexes like Mesquite is top Dallas-Fort Worth.

PA may be the easiest option for you...

I feel PA may be the next state to fall to the scumsucking libtards...
Governor Ed Rendell (former Philly mayor)is a libtard antigun asshat...
That, and the eastern half of the state is filling up with liberal soccer mommies (my sister is one of them )...

WHATEVER you do..stay the hell out of NJ...


Spent six years in the Omaha area...
No CCW...but very gun freindly...

I wouldnt mind living their again...

State premption, but in Miami they're written in Spanish. I hope you speak Spanish if you move to Miami... everyone else there does.

Stay north of the big lake and you'll be just fine. Tampa/Orlando tend to be a little left-leaning, but the north part of the state rocks.
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 4:29:43 AM EDT



ME, NH, and VT are pretty damned good as far as guns go, and you won't be all that far away from NY if you want to get back down to see friends/family for a weekend.

seriously though, write up a letter to all of your reps. doesn't matter what their political bent is, and tell them why it is that you are leaving. i did that when i left CT. though it probably won't change anyone's mind, it's nice to at least let them know their decisions have consequences (in the form of lost tax revenue), and that some of us actually DO care.

JBravo223- I'm in the same boat as you. I live in NJ and hate it. Luckily i am 19 and have no obligations so i am free to move where ever the fuck i want. Thats a good feeling. I'm planning to move in the fall. I've 90% i am going to move to GA. There are several counties around Atlanta that have some of the highest average household incomes in the country. Thats important to me. I run my own construction company so i'd like to be around people that make some coin.

Good luck where ever you go. All i know is it can't wait to leave. Going to be the best 21st birthday a guy could have. I think i'll go fill out my ccw permit on that day!!!

Life long western NY resident here. The real tragedy of NY is that square mile for square mile , it is one of the most beautiful states in the country. Amazing how a few sqaure miles tucked in one tiny corner of the state calls all the shots. Chuck Shummer once stated that he didn't give a damn about anything west of the Hudson River and still gets elected. If you don't know about the geography of NY, the Hudson river is almost the eastern border of the state.

Do yourself a favor and DO NOT go to law school. There are many other fields that pay better where you are not despised by the masses. Your plan to get the hell out of NY is a good one - I wish I had the foresight to do it 25 years ago. I keep trying to get the family to consider getting the hell out of this commie state without much success.

I'd like to move somewhere west or south (my coworkers tell me I'm politically suited to AZ) but all the NE libs who have moved to AZ, NC SC, FL, and other places have pretty much screwed the pooch for the locals and for those of us trying to get away from Liberal LaLaLand.

Yep. Also, there should be no reason why you should be paying $16,000/year in taxes for a measly 3 acres. Average home in the $450K range for a house the size of my garage. Add on top of that miserable weather, congestion, and asshole people, I always ask one question to the younger gen. like myself (29).

Why are you still here?

They'll consider drafting a letter to you, pleading with you not to go, until they read the part in your letter which says you are a gunowner. Then there will be high-fives all round in the office, and they will say, "YESSSS! It's working! Another one bites the dust- pretty soon there will be no more mouth-breathing, monobrow troglodyte gun nuts in our fair state! Good riddance!"

'Cos that's how most NE pols see us.
