Based on the electoral college, dumb people have a larger voice than smart people.

This is a really really dumb comment and is not exclusive to DC. You can tell the poor areas in any city. Tourists always dominate monuments, museums, attraction areas. There is no parking in any city that doesn't require paying for it.

And another dumb topic from someone who doesn't know the city. Dupont isn't a big tourist area. And no, pretty much anywhere in Northwest is safe.

I work out with a few guys here in town who were born and raised in the SE....and they don't even like to go in there at night.
Southeast is and has always been the most dangerous area of DC, especially east of the Anacostia. And 99% of people who work and live in DC never ever venture over there.

But what does that have to do with Northwest?

You guys are really trying to beat each other for dumbest comment in the thread. DC is one of the best cities in the country, and the suburbs are some of the highest quality of living places in the country, particularly Arlington. You obviously know nothing about the city or have a very ignorant idea of what constitutes a decent city.

DuPont Circle is not a tourist area? You coulda fooled me. I have been there many times.....and I was there on the 4th of July - and I have never seen so many tourists in my life! There was so many people walking around It reminded me of Disneyland.

And no I don't live there - I am about 70 minutes away on a weekend day. I am also in contact every single day with multiple people who work there. And when I say work there, I don't mean Tyson's Corner, Alexandria or Bethesda. They all like the money but hate the town and commute. I also know many people who grew up there too.....and they don't want to move back

I'm talking about the entire city - not just the Northwest. You knew that though.

I see. So DC is one of the best cities in the world, provided that you stay out of the areas where the black people live (most of the city), and just pretend that those areas don't exist. And anyone who says otherwise is a dumb, dumb, stupid dum-dum. Ooooookay, then.

Even a red state like Utah only had 73% for Romney. This is expected being a Mormon stronghold.

What makes Washington DC so lopsided?
The vast majority of working voters work for either the DC govt or the fed.

Those that don't work, vote for dems because it is they who keep the entitlement checks coming.

I was talking about DC, you're talking about Arlington. Arlington is where I actually lived and worked....you can have it. It's a liberal cesspool like the rest of DC. Yeah they are absconding with a lot of my tax money and it makes full of a lot of people with money. Like most liberals, they hate the Deplorable Americans that work and pay their salaries....I paid in $89K in FIT last year and the IRS used that money to target people based on their political beliefs (Conservative). Time to drain the Swamp.

The weather was rotten there too with can't breathe humidity n the summer and still freaking cold in the winter.
