    As a life long resident of Northern California, I have suffered under the oppression of anti-freedom socialistic politics and laws for more than 40 years. But in a few weeks I will be escaping to Bellingham, WA. While I know that Bellingham has a reputation for still being somewhat left leaning, nothing compares to the insanity found in the SF Bay Area.

    Freedom is so close I can almost taste it!

    Welcome to Washington, you should like Bellingham.

    It's a pretty cool place, scenery is awesome and it's just below Vancouver BC. There is am awesome Range called the plantation at the state park there.

    Early welcome to the State! Washington does lean left, yes, but the more I examine our laws here compared to other states I really am glad to live here. Some things could be better but overall, this is a fantastic place to be both in terms of just being a beautiful state as well as a good gun law/self defense state. Umm... no NFA guns though :(

    Be sure to check out Boundary Bay brewery when you move up to Bellingham.

    Welcome. Curious, why Bellingham considering that you already know it's left leaning? Yes, anything is better than CA or NY, but personally I've seen the decline of Oregon and WA over the last two decades with gun laws, especially lately and am eyeing other places. Florida is one option but Idaho seems like a place that is much safer from political idiocy, at least for the rest of my lifetime.

    Welcome. I spent this last week up in that area and agree that the downtown section is like any big city in the PNW, freaks n geeks.
    I saw quite a presence of R leaning signs, flags and bumper stickers.
    I also saw many Trump supporters on a bridge one day waving to traffic to boot!!!!;)

    Welcome from SE of Seattle. My daughter went to school in Bellingham and wanted to stay there after she graduated, but a job took her back to the Seattle area.
