Not when you look at housing and expenses. I'm from a rural area and will be moving back when I retire. For what I paid for my house here, I could have bought 4 just like it back home. That is no joke. Now when its time to sell and move back I'll be coming out way on top by taking my money and not buying here again.<quoted text>Ok good incentive to move out of the poor areas, huh?
It'll be an early retirement too :D thanks to the cheap cost of living. Gonna buy me a boat too and hang out all day on the lake that blue staters were nice enough to create with their dam.
