My god please do not tell the ignorant liberals that. It will go over their heads. And they won't believe anything that does not fit into their agenda. It seems we have the most ignorant liberals on this board.

And what list are you referring to.? I do know who voted for Obama. I don't need a list. It is exactly who I said. The less educated, lower class, welfare recipients. A fact that is undeniable.

Compare Spending By State for 2011 - Charts
Well, no ****. They also have some of the highest populations in the nation. When you have 37 million people living in one state, spending is obviously going to be higher then a state with 5 million people.

Compare Revenue By State for 2011 - Charts

Government revenue in those same states are among the HIGHEST.

Checkmate.

It was 311,000 not 100,000 and that lead is likely to go up due to mail in ballots. You're just another example of a low information voter who doesn't know the score.

Huh? You do realize that top 5 LEAST educated states voted for mitt?

Most and Least Educated States - Yahoo! Finance

He also got the votes of the poorest states as well

Now I wonder what could possibly connect the two together

They are doing well financially, so what makes you think that they need to be taken care of?

This type talk is what I hate and despise about Obama supporters. It is the attitude that is separating Americans.

"Most educated states voted for Obama." O. K. Educated how? To lack morals? To the latest four letter word? To not value human life? Not much of an education in my opinion. If that is education, I don't want any.

Just barely half of Americans supported him and he is now talking as if everybody thinks this flawed way that he does. My opinion is that they are just looking for a handout.
