    The highest states are liberal states, with the sole exception of Wyoming, the lowest states are the most conservative states. Doesn't that make a loud and clear political statement?

    Somehow you missed the point, the point being that liberalism is dominant in areas where people feel that income should replace charity, and adopt politcal stances that allow more people to make decent incomes. As a result, Liberal states support the the Conservative states with their tax dollars, and receive only calumny in return.

    Somehow you missed the point.... We don't see Government as one big "charity". We also understand its unconstitutional to use the tax code as a Marxist "redistribution of wealth" program.

    Notice that the most liberal of states, with the highest taxes, like New York and California... are also flat broke states with massive deficits and debt. You can't blame the Red states for this, because that's entirely a state tax revenue issue and not federal transference issue.

    Also, Conservatives aren't the ones begging for new government handout programs... We want the welfare state to go away. Conservatives aren't the ones always begging for new and ever increasing taxation, we want less taxation and an end to all subsidies.

    So while federal tax dollars of Blue states go to the Red states, you're not supporting Conservatives with that money....

    Wow... That was excellent. It's not often you see a liberal post so completely and totally smacked down, conclusively within 2 replies.

    Kudos GenSeneca! :D

    No doubt, it's a matter of that evil education-thing; the bane of Dead-O-Heads, nationwide.

    Then Conservatives prefer to be poorer and live in a state with low taxes than to be be more affluent and live in a state with high taxes? And they prefer policies that make this state of affairs take place? You're kidding me, right?

    There are conservatives in every state. I am in Oregon and thats about as liberal as they get.


    You think all republican and conservatives are rich fat cats. There are conservatives and republicans who are rich fat cats but there are some of the poorest of the poor who are conservatives and republicans too.

    Maybe they have politicians smart enough to get back more than they put in.

    And since the blue states believe in redistribution having their money redistributed to red states should make them happy.

    But there is a fatal flaw (well two) in the whole thought process at the beginning of this.

    One is that blue states have higher income than red states. A handful of very wealthy people in NY and California bring up the average for the whole state. And we all know that hollywood types live in, yep, NY and Hollywood.

    The second flaw is the assumption that the politics caused the wealth. there is just no evidence at all that being of a certain political persuasion causes one to become wealthy. It is just as likely that being wealthy causes one to have a certain political persuasion or that a third factor causes people to be wealthy (like say the influence of hollywood) or leftists (like say hollywood).

    well guess what I am in a liberal state, no nyc no cali here...just lots mroe people , companies that pay better, smarter population ( thus better workers) and not a back water hick state like so many red states. But if taxes where so bad, why would all the rich live in the blue states? :)
