I was privileged to have been born in a liberal city (Providence, RI), but the state I live in now is sufficiently conservative that it wasn't even included on the last list of "Most liberal in state". Decatur, GA would be the closest liberal bastion to where I'm currently living.

I'd be curious to know if any of my readers live in any of these liberal communities.
