Why are red states the shittiest places to live?
Thought your purportedly free market initiatives and "hands off" governing would cause businesses to flourish and life to be so, so sweet.

Instead, they are the fattest, unhappiest, poorest, least educated, most violent...I could go on.

If everyone in the blue states are on the dole, like many of you claim, why is it that they are more educated, fit, wealthy, etc.

I think everything is a balance. I agree with many of you about 2nd amendment - don't take the guns, even though I have none. I support your rights 100%.

I believe federal gov is way too big in a lot of areas - including defense. Let's stop with the global hegemony crap.

If we stopped squashing alternative energies, we would be utterly prosperous.

I think most of you are responding to corporate propaganda. They are using you for their ends. I can and will expound on this as necessary.

Because the states where red is in control are living under the true austerity that the entire nation should have succombed to 7 years (or more) ago. Blue states don't give a fuck. They'll borrow and borrow and borrow....to infinity.

Re: Why are red states the shittiest places to live?
In my red State we have a balanced budget every single year and the State has no debt.

Yes, that means we don't have to best roads like California, or the best welfare programs like Detroit.

It also means we aren't fucking broke like those places. Hell yea, give us 50 billion worth of debt to spend on every dumb ass project and welfare scheme imaginable and I'm sure the standard of living would go up. Of course our kids would be burdened with unsustainable debt.

Not a huge Obama fan. Did you see my Pro-2nd amendment statement. I think you should have your guns.

Just not a fan of hyperbole which in most cases is pro-corporate agenda. Blah blah lawsuits. Blah blah benefits. Blah blah healthcare.

Notice how all the stuff the conservatives despise is actually stuff that would help the common person.

And the shittiest, most impoverished, crime-ridden, corrupt, smelliest sections of the most liberal cities in the the US also are super blue, full of the biggest, dumbest libtards who keep voting for the biggest, dumbest libtard politicians. The same thing applies to some of the crappiest, shittiest countries out there, particularly the dumps of Central and South America and Africa.

How much does California get per capita from the federal gov't? How deep is California in debt with bonds? How bad off is their retirement system?

When you don't fund your own retirement system so that you can use the cash elsewhere that is an accounting trick that amounts to borrowing from yourself.

When you issue bonds you are essentially borrowing money.

When you get bailed the fuck out by the federal government that is a loan? Or is it a gift? Whatever. It's still using money you don't have to prop up an obviously long broken and unsustainable system.

Define red/blue. If we're talking strictly about the pres election, my state is deceptive.

Regarding Obungle, it's 100% red, with every county in the state going anti-oblamo. Voter registration would show blue, though with a much higher number of Dems than Repubs.

Doesn't look to me like what you're basing an opinion on is very stable.
