How liberal is Seattle?
I'm curious about how liberal are folks there in WA state. For what I know, it looks like a cool place to live (Pro-gun, age of consent of 16, thoroughly democrat and worker's rights, pro-gay rights, religiously tolerant).Add the "no state income tax" stuff and there seems a REAL nice place to live. I'm a computer/networks technician, and I'm skilled at fixing electronics stuff, too, so I think I'm a somewhat qualified worker. I'm considering to move outta Europe when the economic meltdown is over and there are jobs again all over the US. I want to move there because your salaries double ours and the prices of stuff are around the same there for you than here for us :P Plus, climate is a bonus, I like colder climates :P, although I'm a biker, some degree of snow/mud can be fought with a good traction like those of Ural motorcycles :P. What is your take on the place? I'm pro-gun, so I find that WA is pro-gun cool. But, on workplace legislation, speech rights, and that... will it be liberal enough for the average "left-wing european social democrat?" Too liberal for my blood... I like it! Nothing is "too liberal" for me :P I think they're more pro-worker in legislation in WA than in Pennsylvania.

Um. Seattle is extremely liberal. It is a beautiful city with many different climates within an hour or so. You have skiing, water activities all close by. Too liberal for my blood though.
