Their formula was based on who the people voted for President.....meaning they claim those who voted for Bush and McCain were, in fact, conservative......Their litmus test for being conservative is how they vote, in a two party system with the same ideas, as if that means anything.<quoted text>I can see St Loius and the major cities as being more Liberal for sure but east coast & west coast they are extremely Liberal. here is a PDF link below it ranks St Louis as the 20th most Liberal City in the US.
The Most Conservative and Liberal
Cities in the United States
In my area we have a union / democrat town that is very conservative. No debt, small local government without foolish ordinances, modest school and government buildings and a community sense of pride and volunteerism. On the hand the town I live in supposed to be the most conservative in the State. Millions in debt, a large intrusive local Gestapo, 25 million dollar high school complete with Italian marble and Chinese granite.......and the largest employers in order
1) County Government
3) City government
4) Parks Department
5) Private firm making medical respirators and parts
Number 5 just sold out to a French conglomerate and now the City / County has given a ten year tax abatement to keep them here.......
