You haven't been to Texas, have you, OP? About the closest thing we have to shitty (besides the "barrios", which are small & remote) are Dallas & Houston- & they've got as much good as they have awful. Even Austin is great & it's full of liberals.

Lotsa (& a wide variety of) gorgeous places, lotsa jobs, & lotsa freedom minded people. Texas Secede!

Re: Why are red states the shittiest places to live?
One word: education

If you are born into stupid you grow stupid. Then you can't rationally make sense why blue states rule.

Stupid is as stupid does.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13917604


My city is ranked as the fifth most educated city in the country for cities under 100,000 people, based on the percentage of adults holding higher education degrees. My little city has been attracting tech companies like Acxiom and HP, who are moving their operations from California. My little city is in a red State. Manufacturing and tech companies have been moving to red States for a decade. Perhaps that is why my State has a balanced budget while the blue ones are billions in debt.
 Quoting: Unixlike


Acxiom and HP are based in CA. They put like a data center in your city. What state?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8625642


Not exactly the best examples to validate your point:

[link to www.siliconbeat.com]

The facts are business is fleeing blue states because they can't afford the endless taxation

We've seen a large amount of flight over the last 4 years, but that's nothing compared to what the next 2-3 years will bring
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1184364


HP is a mess hoss, and it has nothing to do with taxes. The valley and SF are FINE - housing boom.

Links for you stats or you got nothing.

If blue states are not good for it, the loans won't come. Red states are in debt too.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8625642


Here is CA:

[link to dailycaller.com]

Just read they will be borrowing appx. 215 B for 2013

And no, they won't be good for it. If they had a sound fiscal policy and were responsible with a budget they would need to continually subsidize their existence.

They spend money on "feel good" projects that have no hope of ever giving a pay back on the money invested.

I'm on a phone, so its a pain to flip back and forth to post links...

Just Google state debt and states with the most layoffs for the links you desire

You didn't answer any of the questions I asked about your position on the fed gov and loss of rights

Re: Why are red states the shittiest places to live?
North Dakota! We rock, our education system is very good, crime rates are low, we produce things like food, energy, manufacturing, and we are a red state. Look at the population base and what percentage of people are involved in ag. Yes farm payments are high, but so is the percentage of population. Look at where the lmoney for the farm program actually goes. WIC, welfare, school lunch programs, ect less than 20% of the farm program moneys end up going to the actual producers of farm goods. There are several farm products where ND is the largest producer. Canola, sugar, confection sunflowers, top 4th or 5th honey, whea, duram wheat used for pasta, barley, potato's used for chips. Coal powered electric, gas and oil. Plus within 40 minuts of where I live there are 6 4-year colleges, a law school, medical, most likely if you have flown in a comercial flight, someone in the cockpit had their training in Grand Forks, ND t3 of the colleges have master programs and phd programs. MN may be a blue state, but you take the Twin citys out of the picture, you have a red state with very little crime.

Actually most States have balanced budget requirements of some sort and with varying effect. My State is constitutionally required to never spend a penny it doesn't have. Ever.

I'll give you a few guesses as to the States that don't ever balance their budgets or even come within a few billion.

I'm not going to tell you what State I'm from as I suspect you'll simply use that as ammunition to discredit me if you are a troll as I believe. If you have half a brain you can figure it out anyway.

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.
 Quoting: Chip


They live under austerity because they're too stupid and lazy to build business. And too uneducated to lure it in.

You trolls are not even reading the data. The RED states take more from the federal government than they put in.

Re: Why are red states the shittiest places to live?
OP you are so delusional. New York blue state... hmm remember last weeks article about how many can read? 50% high school drop out rate Philadelphia. California where I was born raised and still living cesspit of social programs we cannot afford along with rising drop out rate. Actually I believe we are number 48 or 49 in education while we spend the most another blue state for ya.I could go on but believe those studies they are paid for a specific analysis mostly so tools can spread the lies like yourself.

You do know you are a tool of propaganda for people who think you are a fool behind closed doors.

The problem with you is you cannot use higher reasoning and actually analyze the facts for yourself and need someone else filling your head with untrue lies.

Enjoy the fall because you will be there with us. Sad for you though you probably will bring no true skills for survival or supplies. I hope you understand when I laugh and send you on your way. Unless... I need a target to flush out a sniper.
