Republicans can't run on there record, red states have the worst education, poverty, income, roads and bridges, unemployment, crime, incarceration
rate, executions and a host of other issues.
Yet people continue to vote for them, its amazing really.
WOW, isnt this the truth! I used to live in upstate NY and then moved down to Texas where I lived several years. WHAT A DIFFERENCE between the
Red and [color=cyan]Blue
Having been to both worlds, I just find it asinine at best how there is a Texas and Southern pride thing going on down there!
The education STINKS. Schools give students the exam answers the day before so that they pass them. You graduate knowing nothing other than how to
memorize A, B, C, or D multiple choice answers.
The poverty is DREADFUL!! Never in 40 years of living in NY have I seen so many homeless folks as I seen in my first week in Texas!
Blue state wins HANDS DOWN.
Quality of life is POOR in the red states. Crack-heads in the ghettos of NYC and north Jersey live MUCH better than the average working family in
Texas. The average working family in the South works two jobs each and BARELY pay the electric bill every month. There is NO middle class down there,
and the folks work THREE TIMES HARDER than folks in the north!! Slaves down there with no middle-class really. NY, the Blue state wins HANDS
Income is LOW, and the labor is HARD in the Red states. No real workers rights and healthcare is EXPENSIVE and the coverage is MEDIOCRE at best!! I
guess living so close to Mexico means you are expected to work like a Mexican and expect no decent benefits or perks whatsoever. NY, the Blue state
wins HANDS DOWN.
Roads in Texas and the south have potholes the size of large watermelons after just a single down-pore of rain. You will literally wait over a month
for them to fix them. In NY, the road crews drive around eagerly looking for potholes to fill every hour of their shift. NY, the Blue state wins
Unemployment is somewhat not that bad, but its because of MUCH lower wages, benefits, and workers rights in the Red states. NY, the Blue state wins
And the south likes to put folks in jail for anything while they let anyone who is wealthy or important get away with murder. It happens up north
once in a while, but in Texas and the south, you can get away with anything if you are wealthy or prominent. NY, the Blue state wins HANDS DOWN.
Glad I moved out of the south. The Red states are HELL!! And the poor fools down there are so completely brain-washed into thinking that anyone
other than Republicans are the anti-christ.
I am being SERIOUS here. Ignorant brainwashed people, stubborn as mules.
Red states are hell. Take it from someone who has BEEN to BOTH!! I can literally write an entire BOOK on the differences between the Red states and
the Blue states describing how HELLISH Red states really are for common decent working folks. Its really that bad.
They can SHOVE that Southern pride where the sun dont shine!!
