You have to see this!

Due to the health of my son, we, as a family, will have to move to a more colder, less asthma triggering climate.

The goal is to find out, based on eyes and experience on the ground, from you, which one of the following states would be the most acceptable in terms of population, land values, local population mentality, and how common are the busy bodies in your area. We all really like to be left alone by the busy bodies.

Short list of the state that we, as a family, were trying to pick from are as follows:

Colorado.
Wyoming.
Montana.

Based on YOUR experience of living there, which one would you recommend, and why.

Was hoping to purchase acreage 40+, to have a small homestead going and of course privacy and sustainability . Always budget conscious.

I'm a builder and my wife is a RN.

Any input ideas are appreciated

Thank You

Yes, when we looked for land to build a homestead,

we checked out Colorado first. We found the taxes, fees and regulations to do anything were outrageous. One place far from anywhere didn't allow one to hang one's clothes outdoors. I would recommend you to stick to Wyoming and Montana. They each have their ups and downs, but both are much more free than Colorado. Wyoming's ups: warmer temps, low real estate taxes incredible gun freedoms including concealed carry WITHOUT a permit. Wyoming's downs: sales tax of 6 percent.Wind. Montana's advantages: Beautiful almost everywhere, no sales tax. moderate real estate taxes, almost as good as Wyoming on gun rights. Downside to Montana: cold in winter, short summer, wind there too.More expensive for like real estate in Montana than Wyoming. We found both Montana and Wyoming people very nice.

Or you can look here http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/asthma.html and just have him try these remedies to get rid of the asthma ..

I consider daily paul as a wealth of knowledge and political power. We can grow our minds and our fight for liberty at the same time.

I used to live in Seattle and Las Vegas and I had no issues with my sinuses but moving back to CO has reactivated all of my sinus issues. Other than that I do not know if asthma would be affected as I don't currently have it.

I have done a lot of research on CO..

Ever since the state ended prohibition.

The land is relatively cheap and the quality of life is high. Denver is a multi-cultural melting pot full of art and interesting things.

Question for the OP:

what does your thread have to do with the Liberty Movement or Ron Paul?

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

No need to apologize. If you

No need to apologize. If you look at my question directly, there isn't much to do with Liberty Movement or Dr Ron Paul, however, since different things affect all of our lives, we can either spend time and money dealing with them, or solve them once and for all and move on to the things that will affect our future, such as Liberty Movement and Dr Ron Paul. In other words, me and my family can be stressed out all the time, spend a ton of money on doctors and medications that will degrade my sons health even if they will fix the symptoms, or I can deal with this problem and put more money towards the causes I support. Indirectly it has everything to do with everything, life is a choice.

I guess you didn't get the memo from 6 months ago

The site isn't about Ron Paul so much anymore. It is about ideas and liberty and a lot of other enlightening stuff. The best blog around, in my opinion.

Okay. I seem to have "struck a nerve"

with some of you for asking that. I'm a little confused as to why, but I'll ask again:

My original question was 2 part: What does the OP's thread have to do with the "Liberty Movement" or "Ron Paul"? I heard what you said about "the best blogspot," Liz, but that's not an explaination as to why people that think like you and I (or are more aligned in that thinking) on this specific reason. I didn't come here because "I heard it was the best blogspot." No offense.

I'll give an example: someone makes a post about making a rocket stove. Why? Because using rocket stoves decreases the use of gas/electricity and, in theory and practicality, makes a person "more independent."

Another: A thread was started on the software called Diebold. Diebold was mentioned in testimony back in 2003, regarding voter fraud. Voter fraud is a way to suppress a democratic voting process, thus, it's "Liberty Movement" oriented.

How does this person "add to the Liberty Movement" by asking everyone where they should move and the best reasons for that?

You can down vote me, just give me the courtesy of a reason.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

When my son was small

he struggled with asthma it is a very scary condition. I kept a log as to when he had his attacks and the conditions. It was very helpful to look back and notice a pattern.

We took a gamble and had my son allergy tested and given allergy shots.
Every year he missed school days and had several emergency rooms encounters. After being on allergy shots for about six months he told me he thought it was working. He went though the whole school year without missing school and no emergency rooms visits.

We had moved from Missouri to Michigan and he still had the same asthma issues.

My son is in his thirties now and seems ok but with asthma you never know if it will flare up again.

Good luck to you and your family.

We are an older couple with a homestead in Wyoming

37plus acres, and two homes. Off grid, with other homestead things, including fruit trees, etc. We built many self sufficient type things into our place. However, at our ages, we need to live near family, so we need to sell. We were going to finish the unfinished parts to get more for our homestead, but since you are a builder, you could finish it, and it would go for less. It is, however liveable now, as we have lived here since 2000. It is gorgeous, the area is nice, nurses are needed in town, building is down, but with several oil producing/mining coming up, and other businesses moving in, it is possible that changes. If you are interested, email me by clicking on my name. The only pollen problem we have noticed here is in the spring by the ponderosa pine trees, but with the wind, it usually is very short. There are plenty of trees on this homestead, enough for wood heat.

MONTANA

They have a big group of liberty minded people. Still, some allergens are present. They have, recently, introduced second amendment laws, in the legislature, to legally stop any gun grab!

Just sayin'!

Don't have a suggestion on a location

but I was recenly reading about a supplement for asthma and allergies that is made up of Quercetin and Bromelain. Many positive results in reference to respiratory inflammation type maladies.

Research it and see if it might not be helpful for your son.

I noticed below that you said

Are these states lower in the pollen that cause your sons issues?

I'm in south Texas, there are

I'm in south Texas, there are no winters here, nothing ever dies, northern states do have pollen, however due to shorter growing season it will be minimized to a month or so, here it is constant.

You could move to Alaska. :)

Pretty small natural growing season there too.. The land is dirt cheap.. only about 700,000 people in a state the size of 1/6th the size of the lower 48 combined. 300,000 in Anchorage and 100,000 in Fairbanks with the remaining pretty much spread out.. A lot of growing room there if you're worried about neighbors being nosy lol.

I bought land there awhile back and I have one neighbor down the lake that lives there 6 months out of the year and the next nearest is 10 miles through the woods (no roads) and the next is about 80 miles.

Almost perfect if you ask me. No neighbors is better but I've come to realize that even in Alaska, it's hard to find a place for sale that has nobody near it for 100 miles.

I've been to Alaska in May,

I've been to Alaska in May, you've still had over a foot of snow on the ground in Anchorage. Although a prospect of having a closest neighbor merely 60 miles away, is encouraging.

It's not for everyone that's for sure

but thank goodness for that. I hope these brutal winters run more off, myself.

Used to visit there many years ago. My family were good friends with the only doctor in town. Very beautiful area. Never spent a winter there, not sure I would want to at this late stage of life.

I second that!

I have visited Kalispell too, and this is where I'd go if I could! I hope to retire there someday.

Here's a post I made on this topic back in Jan:

not familiar with the states you list

but my asthma subsided completely when I lived in Arizona for 3 months. And never returned.

Was your son's doctor specific for what's triggering the asthma? Certain types of pollen laden humidity, second hand smoke, car emissions, etc.?

constant pollen, and high

constant pollen, and high humidity.

high humidity

That is the same in most Midwestern, eastern, and southern states.
