Any liberty-minded people in Los Angeles?
« on: October 22, 2011, 07:41:20 PM »

I moved out to LA for work last year (I know, this is probably one of the worst states for a person that values liberty).  Nevertheless, I'm hoping to meet some like-minded people here in southern California.  Any other freedom lovers out there?  Bonus if you're also into craft beer and homebrewing!

I lived in Echo Park Los Angeles, then in Agoura Hills, moved to Wyoming a couple years ago.

Get out of LA soon and go ANYWHERE else. (except NY, MA, or IL.)

CA is going to fall off into the ocean, not literally but figuratively--economically, politically. I lived in Culver City or the immediate area for 8 years and bailed just in time when I felt the housing market boom collapsing.  The government will soon be resorting to drastic measures to survive as property taxes drop rapidly. They created long-term budgets based on the assumption that those taxes would continue and even go up.

+1.

By the way, I'm not a FSW member, and am not trying to get people to move to Wyoming. I moved to the least populated state because I like low populations and I hope no one else moves here. lol....

Dude, LA is where the Reason Foundation is headquartered: www.reason.org

See if you can hook into that crowd.  I think they put on some conferences and stuff where you can meet folks.

We all left.  Did someone behind me forget to turn the power off?

But didn't you move to one of the highest populated areas of WY?  I guess as long as you don't live with a few miles of either Cheyenne or Casper :)

I live in Casper. It's very mellow.

Compared to Los Angeles, it feels like I'm in a bunker in the middle of a field in the middle of nowhere.

If you don't live in a city in Wyoming, you don't have DSL. Period. And the plains are about a ten-minute drive from my house. I have no problem with living in the "city" here, if you can even call Casper a "city."

Check out calguns.net though

Read the locked calguns.net thread about the movie "Guns and Weed: the Road To Freedom"
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=359855

and contact the few people who defended the premise of the movie against the overwhelming number of responses by square statists saying "this movie will set back the Second Amendment 50 years" and "What's next with this kind of 'activism', a NAMBLA Cuddle-and-Shoot Event?" (That last one was from the site admin who finally locked the thread.)

I'm in Santa Clarita. About 30 miles north of downtown LA.

I grew up in LA, in the Valley. Now, you could not pay me to live in that ant hill of humanity. (Well, I suppose you could--but it would be a lot of money.)

But, there used to be liberty-minded people even in Los Angeles back then. My high school history teacher turned me on to libertarianism, and then I got my (very socialist) girlfriend interested in it. John Hospers, the first LP presidential candidate, was the head of the department of philosophy at UCLA.

That's a good point.  My college civics prof, looking back, was clearly libertarian, and I know he influenced my thinking.  So did my high school history teacher, and a coworker in California, who is still a great friend and mentor (and is still in California.)  It's just that these folks are so outnumbered there!
