    I don't get what your saying

    This graphic measures education by degrees earned in secondary institutions. It doesn't mean they're any smarter (or earn more money) than those of us with life-given educations.

    The color of the states is somehow related to some form of spending but it doesn't really explain that part of the graphic.

    Cool

    Awesome, Henry!!! Thank you for that graphic.

    I think I may be able to use it over in the "Unions" thread! When I get some time, I will look for a correlation between the most tax producing states and number of union members. (I'm excited )

    If it doesn't turn out like I hope, I prolly won't post it.

    That is funny! The Democrats did no such thing. Mitt Romney defined himself throughout the Republican primary. Then reinforced it in the first presidential debate when he ran roughshod over a sleeping Obama.

    The next day, while you guys were cheering and counting your votes, the undecided, middle-of-the-road voters were saying, "WTF ... either this guy is a Romney imposter or he's lying through his teeth". Get over it.

    I love revisionist history. That is not actually what either the polls or the focus groups showed.

    I look forward to the posting - hopefully you will be able to do some correlation regarding my original guesstimate of union membership by state. Remember, withholding information available is a form of lying, & I just believe you are above that . It will make a very good baseline for my next foray onto the union thread .

    Not to hurt any feelings but, I find it interesting when someone who lives in a RTW state, with little or no understanding of the situation a uneven playing field brings, espouses anything on the subject. Where we live the unions have inserted themselves into the fabric of government to the point of diminishing returns? I will post more on that subject & my opinion on what that does after your posting on the union thread .

    Becasue they believed their on BS that the minorities would not get out and vote like they did in 2008. However, their underlying canidate offered a bad plan that catered to the well to do. Your base mostly white males (lot of them but not enough) would have voted for Micky Mouse if he had been a republican. Most most importantly, the republicans thought they could do it without women support...bad mistake.

    When you were arguing the birth control issue this summer and was agreeing with Rush, I told you you lost then. Then you got more stupid embracing Akin and then endorsing Murdock.

    This is why you lost. This country is a melting pot of all kinds of folks and they have their rights too. I like my guns and hunting and fishing, but others don't feel the same, and I realize that. So we compromise and work together or you can be like the republicans...their way or the highway. How did that work for you?

    The blue states have a ratio of federal taxes received versus federal taxes contributed of 1 or less. They contribute more federal tax dollars than they provide in taxes.

    The red states have a ratio of federal tax dollars received versus federal taxes contributed of greater than 1. They take more federal money than they provide in taxes.

    The states most dependent on federal government spending are the red states relative to how much they contribute. This is a 2008 based map but this has been the case for many years and likely has not changed. Over the years, some blue states like like California and New York have sent many billions more dollars to the federal coffers than they have ever received in return.

    The federal budget could be balanced by just restricting the spending of federal dollars in these states that get more than they pay in (after adjusting for military spending in some way). A fair and balanced approach that would empower the states to help balance the federal budget.
