What advice can you give me on leaving Texas for a more progressive place?
I am a sixth-generation Texan, but as a progressive I find it increasingly difficult to live here. I thought I could stick it out, but at 66 I find that whatever time I have left I do not want to spend in a repressive, right-wing oligarchy. Can you give me some suggestions about where I might move that I would be among more progressive people? One caveat is that it must have a reasonable cost of living. My nephew wants me to move to San Francisco where he lives, but but I could never afford to live there as I am retired. I have done some research, and the Pacific Northwest (i.e. Washington and Oregon) sound nice, but actually picking a spot is daunting. (And no Scandinavian country will accept me, so I guess I have to stay in the USA.)I would really appreciate any guidance you can give me in this large and life-changing decision.
