For the last couple of years I've been wondering if the Big Island (see
population density...) would be a decent place.
The rest of Hawaii, of course, is socialist, though they recently elected a
Republican governor from Maui.
With something like 5 of 7 global biomes on a single island, if you don't
like the weather, you can drive 10 miles, and it'll change. You got rich
dry people with no wind on one side and poor wet people with wind on the
other, and actual range with cattle and cowboys somewhere in the middle...
Anyone for a "free county" project? :-)
