That's a nice theory and all, but the facts just don't bear it out. On average, states that went to Romney are net TAKERS of federal dollars, and states that went to Obama are net CONTRIBUTORS (i.e. they pay more tax dollars to the federal government than they get back).

When you go through and add them all up, the states that went to Obama in 2012 contributed a net positive of $2,569.0 billion federal tax dollars, while states that went to Romney contributed a net negative of -$1,491.8 billion.

I guess that's why they call them "red" states, because they're on the government dole and spend more than they contribute.

All governments have a natural propensity to grow. You can't allow them in your bedroom, then say "stay out of wallet". If you wan't them out of your wallet, then it's best you kick them out of bedroom.

If they (The Govt) feel that you aren't "adult" enough to be free in your bedroom and make your own decisions, then how do suspect that they'll feel that you're "adult" enough to know how to manage your money??

Don't take this personal Texdentist as you always have great input, but imho, people are just way too selfish. They want what they want for them, but don't care about others. Then, once the govt come for their rights, they throw their arms up in the air and complain and raise hell.

It all comes down to the "Golden Rule", if we cared about our Rights, as much as we cared about our fellow citizens Rights, then America wouldn't be in the predicament it's in now....and the "people" would recognize who their true enemies are.

The chart that I posted the other day with regards to the Red and Blue states basically says the same thing. Nice work! As some of us here know though, some people can look at a circle, yet only see a square.

Maybe they should change blue states to black states??
