Did your politics change when you moved from one part of the US to another?
Not only one region to another, but also consider if you moved from a rural area to the city, or vice versa.
I generally am for reasonable taxation and some basic public programs and services, but having moved to the midsouth from the east coast, I am not very happy about giving money to the county or state, because I don’t think they make prudent decisions, and you hear about so much corruption. When I lived in FL and other places, I paid my taxes without question, and even voted to raise the sales tax temporarily to help fix up the schools that were aging. I still tend to vote similarly to what I always have, holding onto what I have generally felt is the right thing to do, but I do have a slightly different perspective on things. What has been reinforced for me is I tend to favor central government to local government concerning many things. I feel like the practically religiously run states in the bible belt make scary laws that are unconstitutional, and I like the federal laws much better.
On social issues like gay rights, abortion, immigration, I have not wavered or had any second thoughts.
What about you? Did you surprise yourself once you moved, and started to have first hand experience living somewhere else, once you had a different experience.
