Which region redistributes the wealth the most?

Which region protests for liberal agendas more?

Which region is more apologetic to the LGBT community?

Which region is more apologetic to race relations?

Which region has more liberal yuppies?
West Coast plays the game (protests for LBGT rights, universal heathcare ect.) the east coast accually does stuff, Only 1 state on the West coast allows gay Marraige, 8 do on the East Coast, MA has univeral Heathcare, no other state does, not saying these things are necesarily good but they are Liberal Ideas.

Sacramento/Davis are fairly liberal and about 80 miles away from the coast.

how is the east coast doing on medical marijuana? assisted suicide?

the OP's language makes me suspect he does not like liberals.

You obviously haven't lurked the political forum on CD.

I'm one of the few on that forum who is a liberal.

I think the NE corridor have more liberal polices. The WC has more liberal people who subscribe to grass roots liberalism.

>>>>>>>Is Liberal and a Californian. The West Coast is weird becuase our inland areas in California, Oregon, and Washington have strong Conservatives, but we dominate due to the population centers and the fact that the GOP doesn't moderate its positions beyond its base, atleast in CA.

I like a lot about the west coast but one thing that really annoys me about it is that people wear their politics on their sleeve. You're either super liberal and an ideologue or you're the opposite (but still an ideologue).

As an example, I had someone who had just moved to Philly from Oakland lecture me about how we should really compost at my place of work . . . we already do we just don't feel the need to talk about how great we are because of it.

I have a lot of relatives who call themselves conservative and probably don't spend much time dwelling on gay marriage or medical marijuana but don't think either should be illegal . . . but then i'm from NJ and that's just part of the culture regardless of what your politics are. Being conservative in NJ means something different than it does in Ohio and by the same token there aren't as many liberal activist types either.

I guess my point is that the west coast is a land of political extremes whereas in the northeast a persons viewpoints on social or environmental issues is separate from their economic perspective and there's much less disagreement over the social and environmental issues.

Well, I guess the poll would be some evidence.

But the old saying "Go, and you'll know" also applies.
