    Here's an income equality map, meaning what's the difference between the poor and rich:



    Again I see a trend.

    Thats funny when you over lay your map with this map I found about the 2008 elections it shows generally what I was saying

    Look at the 4th map of the US down. Voting results by county.

    So if you are poor in the south you vote blue, rich in the south you vote red? That's the only real place on the map that matched what you were saying. Why is the south so difficult to deal with?

    I'll go one further and say that many of those blue areas have higher racial minorities.

    If you are poor you think it is ok to take another persons money for yourself.
    I guess it proves my point that people who generally don't pay taxes voted for Obama.

    Whats difficult to deal with?

    Part of the problem is that there are a lot of rural areas here requiring people to drive more.

    We love fried everything to. What can I say there are a bunch of fat asses here. Come and visit and go to Walmart, its a freak show.

    The racial minority thing I don't have any issue with. It's hard to argue that there are more blacks in Az than Il. I attribute that to the fact that blue states have larger urban areas and since blacks weren't allowed to hold land for so long, it isn't surprising that most of the lesser populated states (land owners) are white.

    Notice the bastion of liberalism (New England) is not poor in the slightest but yet they vote blue every single time. Explain that one.

    I tried doing an overlay in photoshop to post on here but I couldn't get it to look right (readable). Basically it looks like if you live in the south and are poor you vote blue, but that's basically as far as I'll go with you. Appalachia voted red and they are poor as hell, so the ball is in your court.

    ALSO, the percentage of the population that lives in those poor blue counties in the south is a very small percentage of the overall Democratic voting block.

    Its mentality I suppose. New England states have higher population expansive cities.

    I'm speculating but it may be the "I'm to busy to donate to charity have government handle deal."

    I think at times living in a city also removes you from realities of the real world, outside of the white collar trades.

    Imagine what a farmer see's and does on a daily basis that forms his or her world view.

    When you live in a city you don't see where your food comes from and many other things that are taken for granted. Like I said though I'm speculating.

    When you live in the rural areas you forget how the real US lives (meaning the MAJORITY of us). How you can say that farmers are the real world is beyond me. When you farm you forget what its like to actually have to use your brain for an income.

    I guess I should of said natural world. Even that doesn't sound right though. Farming takes some talent and finesse.

    I've had the luxury of living in both settings, I have to say living in the country has been harder on me. I do appreciate the country more because of my last 5 years here. I also enjoy not being confined in the man made jungle.

    It takes brains to do some of the agricultural work, at least more than you think.

    I gotta go out for a little while but I'll be back to respond.
