http://www.bls.gov/web/laus/laumstrk.htmMy friend has the perfect solution, move. Conservative, working peope who live in blue states should move to a red state. You would be taking away electoral votes from blue states, and adding them to red states. Can you really afford blue states? Illinois added 66% increase in state taxs last year, and they still ren't paying their bills.So in the next cpl years we will investigate states, and taxes to see where we should move to. First state up, Tennessee. It is beautiful, the educational system is better then Illinois, and there are jobs.
maybe north or south dakota is the way to go, tennessee's unemployment rate is higher than the national average.
