    I would counter with the FACT that Palin in the news highly motivates DEM boots on the ground.
    In fact, I just got a call from one of them taking donations for the DNC.

    Palin may have her 30% hard core, but every time she is in the news, the other 70% breathes a huge sigh of relief she isn't VP or President .

    I think you missed the point in the example I used. In 2013, NYC - the city, mind you - had a homicide rate of 2.9 per 100K, while the entire state of Louisiana had a rate of 10.5 per 100K (even though NYC has nearly 3X as many people as the state of Louisiana). If NYC were a state, it'd be tied for the 13th lowest homicide rate in America.

    Look, AR, the inner cities do tend to have the highest murder rates - NYC's an exception to the rule. Where the homicide rate really plummets is in the suburbs and outlying metropolitan areas. But that's why there's such an obvious difference in the homicide rates - big cities are the financial hearts of any state in America. The bigger the city, generally speaking, the more money there is to be made. As a result - again, generally speaking - fewer people are in poverty...

    ...and it's the places with the lowest poverty rates that generally have the lowest homicide rates...whereas the places with the highest poverty rates generally have the highest homicide rates. And where are the places with the highest poverty rates? Michigan, the worst parts of some inner cities...and much of the South.

    That's just the way it is.

    I strongly agree that rural areas tend to be more conservative - remember, I grew up strongly conservative in the very deepest of the rural Deep South. That said, your map doesn't do you any good...because MOST people in blue states tend to be liberal - which is why they are, you know, BLUE states - and MOST people in red states tend to be conservative...which is what generally keeps them red.

    That means that if higher rates of homicide, divorce, and teenage pregnancy were due to those godless, lawless lib'ruls, then the blue states would be higher, period.

    But they aren't. Generally speaking, the red states are. And you can't get around that simple fact.

    Ah. So there's a greater percentage of "entitled liberals" in red states than in blue states?

    I have a problem with today's homicide stats, they don't tell the whole story. What I want to see how many were actually shot. As you know today, you're more likely to survive a gunshot wound today than fifty years ago. There was a lot learned during the Vietnam War just like there was during the two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that will lead to more people surviving in the trauma wards in the future.

    NYC is also a poor choice to use just like San Francisco would be. These two cities are freak cities where the people have little personal freedoms.
