    Tech is the future but at least for now attracts mostly liberals. A conservative city could benefit economically but would there be major kickback against the “liberal disease?” Would liberals flock there for the cheaper cost of living only to ironically drive it up by doing so? Would the indigenous conservatives taking the jobs be enough to outnumber or balance out the liberals? Would they convert to liberalism from all the exposer inside and outside the workplace? Could this give birth to more young centrists?

    You are basically implying conservatives drag their knuckles by asking such a thing

    I wasn’t meaning to.

    I don’t know because I’m surrounded by liberal cities. Probably somebody who lives in a conservative state or city could answer that better than me. Dallas maybe? I don’t really know.

    I asked the question because I don’t think there really is such a thing as a conservative US city (of any significant size). The city governments of even larger cities with Republican mayors and city councils are generally moderate at most.

    No reason to assume that only "liberals" can do tech jobs. Not everyone in a tech company is a weed smoking dreamer. Plenty, if not most, jobs can be done by hardworking educated conservative people with good work ethics.

    Most “liberals” are not “weed smoking dreamers.” Most “liberals” are “hardworking educated” people with “good work ethics.”

    I am as lefty as they come. I have two graduate degrees and work 60 hours a week. Oh and do not smoke weed.

    True. Even Dallas leans blue. Maybe in the deep deep south. Jacksonville is pretty conservative but that's not a huge city, same with Charleston, but ha, even Charleston went for Clinton in 2016.

    It's hart, not because of the companies themselves, but because of diversity that large cities bring.

    I'm asking if a tech heavy Silicon Valley or Seattle can be replicated in a conservative city without swinging the politics to the left.
