    The map is not really accurate. Cities tend to vote blue while suburbs/countryside vote red. Russ Feingold has his strength in Madison but couldn't win.

    Cleveland is blue, but Mentor (where 4 teens who committed suicide enrolled and whose high school featured the famous anti-gay slur during a football game) is flaming red.

    So the map really needs to include numerous dots of blue in red country.

    It is for certain that legislatures in the southeast will have to deal with the addition of several congressional districts pulled out of the northeast come 2011. Georgia is an example. There are currently 13 congressional districts. The legislature convening in January will place a new district before the close of session. This most likely will go north of Atlanta in a heavily conservative area that has grown so significantly.

    Don't worry.
    After 2 years of another Republican Great Depression, the voters will be only too happy to throw the bums out.

    God, you sound just like Obama: Arrogant, Elite, Out of Touch
    Congratulations to you, GQJock and Christian... each of you personify what's wrong with liberals.
    To which I would add:
    Why on EARTH would anyone live in New York or California? Two failed states with crippling taxes, a crippling cost of living and decades of political corruption.


    SIGH .... You're right

    Who'd want to live in NY with it's cosmopolitan worldwide reputation and it being the top destination around the world
    The seat of commerce and communication
    Where Wall Street and Fashion reign supreme

    Who'd wanna live there, right? It's much better in Tulsa ...... the "real" America
    Where it's so free to be gay Where you can walk down the streets at night holding your BF's hand icon_confused.gif

    And you're so right about that political corruption stuff
    Tsk ...... it's terrible there

    Most of the states colored in blue are bankrupt, high taxes, high cost of living, unfriendly to business owners, downright unfriendly people and dirty smelly liberals who need to take baths.

    The states colored in red are low taxes, affordable living costs, business friendly, and very nice people.

    This is a no brainer I will take the red states. This makes me feel even worse that I'm stuck here in Taxachusetts.

    You are very right. An accurate map will show about 5 small shades of blue and the rest of the country would be bright red. You can look at this years congressional map as an example.

    The number of people holding at least a Bachelors Deg per capita
    Taxachussetts Number one
    AK LO and WV are the last
    http://www.census.gov/compendia/statab/2010/ranks/rank19.html

    Federal Aid Sent to States per Capita
    Wyoming, Alaska and Louisiana are 1, 2 and 3
    http://www.census.gov/compendia/statab/2010/ranks/rank22.html

    affordable living costs >>>>>>> because NO ONE WANTS TO LIVE THERE
    low taxes and business friendly ......... means we care more about making money than we care about our citizenry

    I own a business with 25 employees who have families and roots in Taxachusetts. By leaving I would have to hire and train new staff for starters. Of the 25, I would like to take at least 10 with me. I'm working on it though.

    You know what Christian, you obviously dont like me and thats fine because I dont like you either. You dont want to hear anything that I have to say, and I dont appreciate being called names, so maybe it would just be best if we both hit our ignore buttons.

    Did you not in this same thread refer to us "dirty, smelly, liberals?" Maybe you should follow your own advice. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Chris - I remember well your posts before as CHRISMA. You indicated there you were a business owner in Mass. Completely consistent with what you write now. Obvious attempt to lie to get you on the defensive. Don't buy into that. Most of the RJ members who are liberal are honest, even though misguided IMO. Only the smallest pct are totally dishonest. I and a number of others don't waste time dealing with certain specific RJ members. Also, some of the liberals who like to consider themselves elite are the last people who should be considered elite. Obviously a defense mechanism. If you were aware of some of their backgrounds and "occupations" based on what they have written about themselves, you would ask yourself, as a business owner, why you would even waste time trying to reason with them.

    And how long did you live in New York City? I lived there for 38 years.


    Geez. How old are you? Your profile says 46 and you've said you grew up in New Jersey but now you lived in New York for 38 years and have been in Miami as long as I've been on RJ, which is a couple of years anyway.

    He also has an imaginary boyfriend.

    And according to adam4adam, he DOESN'T live in Florida.

    Go figure!

    One would think, based upon this sort of rabid post from the OP, that these types of posts are nothing more than ranting because the Uber Liberals did not achieve a higher order of their ened to be control freaks.

    I personally do not invest in Taxachusetts nor would I live there. If they want that form of government, let them pay for it. And in saying what I have just said, that is what this has always been about since the framing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787 and creation of the Federalist party: making someone else pay for it.
