Liberalism is a sickness spread by big city beliefs , CNN and MSNBC. It is an epidemic in the colleges and the next generations will surely ruin this great nation. The media hub is located in the sick liberal cities and spread their sickness to the weak minded who soak it up like a sponge without question. Indoctrinated into a sickness of destructive thinking . This is the reason that California is liberal. It is a mind sickness. Globalism is without borders, without laws, without sane thinking.
Cut and pasted from another topic IMO seems to represent current rightwing thinking in the USA, me being a liberal i think i'll take a pass on visiting America if this is the attitude i'll be subjected to.

That is alarming. It sounds cultish. Unstable. I guess it's not inconceivable that it is turning into a cult if there are millions of people who think the same way.

It is funny that cities that are liberal tend to be more economically prosperous and more people want to live there. Maybe if these middle-of-no-where places started being a little less rigid and tolerant more people would actually want to go there, live there, invest there. The world is changing ... you either evolve or become extinct.

If you look at the results of US elections, median income of Trump voters are higher than that of Hillary voters... How can you explain this?

Actually, so many Hillary voters receive welfare... Not exactly definition of prosperity...

As the Wanderer already pointed out, you are making huge generalizations and even bigger assumptions....not everyone int he big coastal cities embrace the current Democratic Party.

no, it is not funny at all. You can't mix what is result and what is the cause.

Being liberal is not the cause of prosperity, it is the result of it. There is no evidence that being liberal makes a city more economically successful.

that's not the main problem with the logic. She mixed correlation with causation, a mistake many make without basic knowledge in statistics.

Might have something to do with slashing taxes that will benefit the 0.1% the most.
