    The problem with the map is that the entire populace of a state doesn't tend to vote for one candidate. Candidates get a percentage of a states voters. Does the map state who the non-income tax payers are going to vote for? That info would be more relevent.

    Obviously, but the 47% comment is about individuals. Not states.

    Duh! There is a REASON why those states have lower incomes.

    They have those lower incomes/low cost of livings because they have lower (or no) state taxes, therefore crappier infrastructure and "colleges" that are nothing more than jock factories.

    You get what you pay for in life. There's a reason many of those Red States are the Pabst Blue Ribbons of the country.

    It is what it is.

    As a result, the map referred to shows CLEARLY that those states are the WELFARE QUEENS of the country. Ironic, huh, when you're complaining about "redistribution"? The RED STATES are the epitome of redistribution.

    States are made up of individuals.

    Alabama's robots are not to blame.

    Also, according to Romney, those states are "Culturally Inferior" using the same logic he has with the Palestinians.

    Rural economies don't generate as much revenue as the banking and services industries. Many of the state also have large tracts of land controlled by the federal government.

    So you should favor cutting back government since it will screw the people in the red state you clearly despise as evidence by your comments about people from Alabama.

    BTW you mentioned attending a fundraiser that Clinton attended did you have a chance to ask him if he ever feels guilty about raping Juanita Brodderick, or any of his other sexual assaults?

    I've missed you too, Honey Boo Boo!

    Been busy moderating the Football Forum. We don't tolerate crap over there - - including a very ancient and prolific former member (an extreme Lefty, no less) who was masquerading as a female poster the past few weeks.

    I have no idea what you are talking about - - I've never attended any fundraiser where any Clinton was present. In fact, I've never attended a political fundraiser in my life.

    Better question is what does Clinton's sexual dysfunctions have to do with the subject of THIS thread? One would think you would be AGAINST hijacking of threads with non-sequitors. What does your question have to do with my post or the subject of this thread?
