    Exclamation "Strategic Relocation--North American Guide to Safe Places"

    This is a great resource and a way to start thinking about the next phase of life....

    AVOIDING AND MITIGATING STRATEGIC THREATS THROUGH RELOCATION

    What follows are some excerpts from a new book "Strategic Relocation--North American Guide to Safe Places" by David Kupelian. The following are the major threats we will face in the next 20 years:

    1. NATURAL DISASTERS (storms, tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, earth changes) 2. HEALTH THREATS (air pollution, water quality, disease, bad nutrition, establishment medical control or suppression of viable alternatives) 3. CRIME, SOCIAL UNREST (riot, criminal activity, racial/class conflict) 4. ECONOMIC DISASTER (depression, speculation, market manipulation, controls, shortages, excess regulation, unnatural growth) 5. WAR, TERRORISM, INVASION (nuclear, biological, chemical threats; terrorism, refugees, invasion) 6. GOVERNMENT INTRUSION UPON LIBERTY. (conspiracy for control, intrusions upon privacy, property rights, liberty, self-defense. Also, religious persecution and values control through education and media propaganda)

    Below are listed some cities that rank as the most dangerous in terms of some of these threats:

    WORST 25 METRO AREAS FOR CRIME:
    1. Miami, Fl

    3. New York, NY
    4. Tallahassee, Fl
    5. Los Angeles, Ca
    6. Jacksonville, Fl
    7. Gainesville, Fl
    8. New Orleans, La
    9. Little Rock, Ar.
    10 Jackson, Tn
    11. Tampa/Clearwater, Fl.
    12 West Palm Beach, Fl
    13. Baltimore/Washington DC, Md
    14 Albuquerque, Nm

    21. Flint, Mi
    22. Jersey City, NJ
    23. Kansas City, Ks, Mo
    24. Orlando, Fl
    25. Riverside, Ca.

    1. Mexico City, Mexico
    2. San Francisco/Oakland
    3. Los Angeles basin, Ca.
    4. Anchorage, Ak
    5. Seattle Wa.

    1. Washington DC /and related bases (major command and control for the President)
    2. Colorado Springs, Co (Cheyenne Mtn Control Center, 2 space command/comm bases)
    3. Omaha, Ne (secondary command and control bases)

    9. Cheyenne, Wy (Warren AFB, Minute Man and Peacekeeper MX missiles)
    10. Great Falls, Mt (Malmstrom AFB --Minute Man missiles)

    Now for some good news: Here are current ratings for the:

    TOP 10 MODERATE GROWTH, MEDIUM SIZED METRO AREAS that are relatively safe from strategic threats, or where you have a good chance of mitigating those threats. This are not the best areas, but the areas where most people who need to stay in the job markets will find medium term security:

    1. Boise, Id
    2. Provo-Orem, Ut
    3. Beaverton, Oregon
    4. Santa Rosa, Ca
    5. Greenville, Sc
    6. Winston-Salem/High Point, NC
    7. Austin-San Marcos, Tx
    8. Grand Rapids, Mi
    9. Reno, Nv
    10. Madison, Wi.

    For those of you on a tight budget, here are the TOP 10 MOST ECONOMICAL STATES to live.

    These ratings take into consideration overall taxes, housing, and cost of living. These ratings also exclude most large metro areas, where costs are much higher than the state average.
    1. Arkansas
    2. Alabama
    3. Louisiana
    4. Texas (except Dallas Metroplex)
    5. West Virginia
    6. Oklahoma
    7. South Carolina
    8. Mississippi
    9. Wisconsin
    10. Tennessee

    SOME STATES WITH TAX ADVANTAGES: This doesn't tell the whole tax story since all states collect a lot of taxes. However, a person whose financial structure or income structure is different from the average person can take advantage of this by living in a state which doesn't tax his particular form of income or spending patterns. There are more details in the book, "Strategic Relocation"

    STATES WITH NO INCOME TAX: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire (but has 5% tax on div/int) , So. Dakota, Texas, Washington, Wyoming.
    STATES WITH NO SALES TAX: Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, Oregon,
    STATES WITH NO INCOME OR SALES TAXES, BUT HIGH PROPERTY TAXES: Alaska, New Hampshire.
    STATES WHO SHARE A BORDER WITH NO SALES TAX/NO INCOME TAX STATE: In these states, you can live in a no income tax state and shop across the border in a no sales tax state:

    Washington/Oregon Wyoming/Montana So. Dakota/Montana
    As you can see, it can be rather enjoyable or frustrating doing this kind of analysis, depending upon where you presently reside.

    Great post. Very informative. There is always a trade off between solid economic opportunity and the relative seclusion of low density population. I would have put East Central Iowa and Eastern Iowa on the list for personal safety until I read about Omaha and Kansas City being targets for nuclear attack. Still, the game will be over if either of those two are attacked. Russia is the only power with that capability, and if we get into a hot one with what is left of Russia there won't be anything left worth surviving for. So with that in mind,
    I'm a big fan of MO, IA, MN, Arkansas, so long as one stays away from the crime ridden big city areas.

    Austin-San Marcos is an economic growth area, but it is now unbelievably congested. I-35 is a nightmare to drive on, as are many of the roads which are found in the Austin area.

    You don't have to wonder about why I call most of the larger cities in FL...'extra mag' cities.

    I'm curious as to why Gainesville is #7 on the list unless it's Government Intursion Upon Liberty...the town is ultra-liberal., but we still like the area here.
    If I could sell my house and convince my wife , I'd probably choose to live in the Ozarks of AR...doubt it will ever happen.

    Horrific Spree Killer Danny Rolling is probably fresh in their minds but the real reason I didn't want my daughter to go to UF (besides the commies who teach there) is the proximity of the three major FL prisons in the area. When the cons get sprung and they want fresh, easy meat they head for Gainesville. The dirty little secret for both Tallahassee and Gainesville is the sky high incidence of forcible rape.

    Can't account for the capital (there are theories but I don't want to speculate since I don't KNOW) but UF is definitely the prisons. The dirty secret is the fact that the police reports for each university are carefully "sanitized" before being made public so as not to scare off the parents. I think the universities were sanctioned for this several times, but the money is just too good to allow the ugly truth out there. Ya gotta DIG.

    Nuke Targets:

    2. Colorado Springs, Co (Cheyenne Mtn Control Center, 2 space command/comm bases)
    About 15 miles east of me. When the Nukes go, I go. Simple, fast and easy. Other than that, we're in great shape.

    Nice list, Ex! Thanks!

    Or there's something we just don't "know" about.....

    (Sorry, couldn't help it...)

    But in all seriousness thank you sir. I saw a list like this when I was a teenager and it was interesting, but didn't really hit me. Now that I'm old enough to have NO control over where I live it seriously seems so much more pertinent.

    Tennessee should be on the listing of states with no state income tax as well.

    Northwest Montana (Flathead, Lincoln and Lake counties) is considered by DHS to be a high value terrorist target. We are home to the three eastern-most hydro-power dams (Hungry Horse, Libby and Kerr) on the entire Columbia River hydro-power system.

    Take out any or all of these dams and the effect will be felt all the way the the mouth of the Columbia at Astoria, OR. The dams on the lower Columbia wouldn't stand a chance. All three of our dams have been operating on Threat Level Orange for years, no more guided tours, e.g.

    Another area in the PNW that has always concerned me is the Umatilla Army Depot in eastern Oregon, where they store deteriorating and decaying chemical, biological and nerve agents. The place spooks me every time I drive thru it.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Above a certain amount:

    Statute: RSA 77
    Administrative Rules: Chapter Rev 900
    Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

    What is it? A 5% tax is assessed on interest and dividend income. The State of New Hampshire does not have an income tax on an individual's reported W-2 wages.

    Who pays it? Resident individuals, partnerships, limited liability companies, and fiduciaries with non-transferable shares earning interest and dividend taxable income of more than $2,400 annually ($4,800 for joint filers). In addition, the following exemptions may also apply: 1) a $1,200 exemption is available for residents who are 65 years of age or older; 2) a $1,200 exemption is available for residents who are blind regardless of their age; and 3) a $1,200 exemption is available to disabled individuals who are unable to work, provided they have not reached their 65 th birthday.

    ExSoldier mentioned proximity to FL prisons. Take a look at the prison population within 60 miles of Pueblo, Colorado! Our "wall of fame" includes the SuperMax and a few other ADX facilities that are about 45 minutes west of us. Here's a list of our State prisons: List of Colorado state prisons - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Oh, an we're only 45 minutes south of Cheyenne Mountain. I feel safer already!
