You've got that right. They also never take into account that if it doesn't already cost more to live in areas government by modern liberals, it soon will. Higher taxes, more expensive real estate, utilities, grocery prices, fuel, etc. Folks actually pay more for all of that intrusive government. As long as the local government has an industry to suck dry for funding, the ponzi scheme can hold out for a while. Take Detroit for example: Liberals killed the auto industry, and in so doing, they killed the goose that laid their golden eggs. They drove away their industry, and once the real jobs were gone, there was no one left to pay the bills.<quoted text>
you notice how they always want to argue percentage and not actual dollars? They want credit for what those rich republicans in their states pay in federal income taxes but they don't really want to consider in actual money the liberal states are taking way more than anyone else.
Supporters of leftists like Barack Obama are willing to do the same to the entire nation.
I'll take the "red" areas myself. The government that governs least, governs best, and I get to keep more of the money I earn.
