    Well there you have it. It's the native population's fault.

    personally, I miss aspects of the culture... the beach/surfer culture, to be more specific.
    that particular culture is unrecognizable in comparison to what it was 30-40 years ago.... but I still vacation there occasionally ( primarily Laguna beach)
    Texas "beach culture" is non-existent... the beaches absolutely suck here ( in comparison), but everything else is much better.
    I'm within a few hours of mountains, desert, beach, country, metropolis, agriculture, industry, rich, poor, leftists, rightists, and I can do it with year round pleasant weather. I pay the sunshine tax. I'm okay with that.

    Yea, and it's a pretty stupid poll idea, anyway.

What I get are tax increases, insanely high gas prices (the state makes more per gallon than the oil company-and despite oil being refined here its still cheaper to refine and ship across country than to buy here), ****ty roads, ****ty local govt chasing liberal fantasies like the high speed train, etc.

    And beyond that, those who dont pay are getting the same.

    So DO tell what Im getting for this, besides a bunch of entitled uneducated liberals who can't even return change at the store.

    Absolutely. I know how to find good food when Im out of state. The people are as a general not only more polite but warmer. The roads dont suck. Traffic doesn't suck. Why should I put up with all the crap? For a few extra days a year of nice weather? I like weather-it keeps it interesting.

    Over half of Alaskan natives are unemployed, they are exempt from the 60-month limit to welfare, they are as a rule much poorer than the general population (poorest in the nation), and a much higher number (1/3) are under the age of 18. All of those are causative factors.

    But beyond that they vote democrat. Most welfare recipients do.

    You have been in the black as a "producer" for what, a couple years at most? You spent the first couple decades heavily in the red. Why do you feel you're entitled to skip out on paying it forward to the next generation?
