Unreported Facts About the 2008 Election

INTERESTING FACTS ----- NOTICE LINK AND MAP AT BOTTOM

Some unreported stats about the 2008 election:
Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School of Law, St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning the 2008 Presidential election:

-Number of States won by: Democrats: 20; Republicans: 30

-Square miles of land won by: Democrats: 580,000; Republicans: 2,427,000

-Population of counties won by: Democrats: 127 million; Republicans: 143 million

-Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Democrats: 13.2; Republicans: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Republican won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens. Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in rented or government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.

Notice that only in the states of Alaska and Oklahoma : All counties were won by McCain/Palin.

All major cities ( democrate vote base) are a hot bed of welfare , sloth and crime.. These Democrats / communist , yes communist living off the government who is living off of the working class people of every walk of life..

People who work and contribute for the most part make up the republican vote base, and do not wish to live like sardines in these tiny crime ridden government complexes..

None of that red territory is farmland benefitting from billions in agricultural welfare? No military bases out west pumping up the local economies? Not to mention a lot of the "blue" states pay out more in federal tax than they get and the reverse is true for a lot of the red states.

Re: Unreported Facts About the 2008 Election
Olson didn't say those things, Tyler (or whatever the correct name is, possibly Tytler) doesn't appear to have ever written these actual words, and the data for the election are for Gore-Bush in 2000. Start with www.snopes.com, then do a little searching on your own. It's not hard to find this out.

When are people going to learn to verify the content of forwarded e-mails on the basis of their veracity rather than the recipient's knowledge of the sender???
