Welcome to OCDO and greetings from sunny, dry Arizona Shienhausser!
First off (as in, "before I forget"): you should consider mentioning the state of Arizona as a potential candidate for your parents' new home state should they decide to move to a Freedom-loving state. Great climate, not too cold, and you should just see the landscapes!
Second: you seem to have a mentality I can agree with (we aren't police or vigilantes, we should try to portray OC in a good light, we should remain polite even if we're confronted by a ranting anti).
Hope you stick around for some great conversation.
