    Why do red states have so many rednecks?


    It is extremely difficult to get a GOP Senator to accept something when their salary depends upon not accepting it.

    Blue states tend to have really high cost of living?

    Cost of living. New York and coastal California have higher a cost of living than almost anywhere in the US. DC has also seen a large jump in cost of living.

    a more desirable place to live with on average higher paying jobs means more expensive housing.

    Also people less able to take care of themselves tend to end up in places with more available social services.

    Obviously it is because Trump is president. If we are going to give him credit for a bull market don't we also have to give him credit for the homeless problem?

    Re: why do blue states have so many homeless?

    It's expected by virtue of the numbers alone that some of the largest, most densely populated cities in America, also have the largest number of problems. Homelessness is multicultural and multi-factional, and is not as easy to solve as simply providing shelter or apartments. If it was a problem that was simple to solve, cities would have done so decades ago. It takes an intensity of continuous social and health services to help the homeless.

    We're in an age where status and wealth has shifted America’s economy. Legislators are not working for the ‘people'. Instead, they are serving their donors. Money has bought out our leadership. America is no longer for the people or by the people. This country will soon be a different society comprised of people without a home. It will be up to that society (the homeless and the poor) to rebuild this country and not depend on the products made by the wealthy. This country as a whole is corrupt from the man in the Oval Office to the business owner in town. Meanwhile there are 13.1 million people homelessness in America and 22 million in poverty. The numbers are increasing in major cities where overpopulation is reducing available and affordable resources.
