NINE out of the TEN POOREST states are REPUBLICAN
"By all three measures, 9 out of the 10 poorest states voted Republican in the last presidential election.(In fact, they voted Red in the last four elections.)
According to the latest Census data, 9 of the 10 states with the lowest per-person income levels were Red: Mississippi, Arkansas, Idaho, West Virginia, Kentucky, Utah, Alabama, South Carolina and Oklahoma.
The Census data also show that 9 of the 10 states with the lowest median household income were Red: Mississippi, Arkansas, West Virginia, Kentucky, Alabama, Tennessee, Louisiana, South Carolina and Oklahoma.
And 9 of the 10 states with the lowest median family income were Red: Mississippi, Arkansas, West Virginia, Kentucky, Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Louisiana and South Carolina.
The only Blue state on each list: New Mexico.
By the way, 9 of the 10 states with the highest per-person income voted Blue in the 2012 presidential race: Colorado, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Virginia and Washington. "
Do you really want to go there? California median income is higher than Texas. When corrected for COST OF LIVING,(census bureau) Texans actually have more spendable income than California. Your stats are incomplete.

Victoria, this isn't a war. Do you believe Republicans are simply "bad people"? There is no texture in your observations, everything isn't black and white. All Republicans don't hate Black people, and all Democrats aren't socialists. Clemens said," there are lies, damn lies, and statistics ". What do you think?

I'm not happy about the Charlotte mayor. How heartless do you think I am? He, at least for awhile, was a true American success story. Yes, i'm aware that there are white conservatives who have also been arrested for graft. If anything, this shows how much temptation there is for elected officials, no matter what their party.

Don't blame you for wanting to call a truce with Victoria. You look like a weak leader doing that.

where did we get that money to give them? We BORROWED IT.

It's always amusing to me that democrats bitch and moan about red states ( code for evil white people) taking, and how stupid they are and how racissss they are... But when these control freaks get asked about going their own way, they get panicky... " it's not possible!" " it can't happen!!" " you need us!!!" Same old shit, no real answer, no balls to leave to start your democrat heaven on earth and still historically ignorant of people's wish for self determination. All talk, no action. We don't want to be a part of your country... Didn't the war of northern aggression teach you anything?
