Yeah, they are so educated that they never heard about this:

“Once the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the Republic.” – Benjamin Franklin


"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship." - Prof. Alexander Frazer Tytler

Not so. It was the Honey Boo Boo and the lower class, less educated, welfare types that voted for Obama. The more wealthy , educated, self reliant people of the red states voted for Romney. The minorities of the red states are Obama supporters

The most liberal southern states in the 2012 election are Florida, Virginia and North Carolina. Obama won Florida and Virginia. Romney only won North Carolina by a little over 100,000 votes. 100,000 is not a lot considering NC has 9.6 million people. North Carolina is the 10th largest state by population and is becoming more educated and liberal. It's a stark contrast to South Carolina which has smaller cities, is poorer, less educated and is a deep red state. South Carolina is also the most racist southern state after Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia.

Obama barely squeezed by Virginia and Ohio . Virginia , North Carolina, Florida are traditional conservative states and one election does not change that fact. Ignorance about red and blue states is not an excuse. I have not seen the results for Florida, but I would bet it was very close too. Getting only a little over the half mark is not too much of a victory. BTW smaller cities for a state does not mean it is less educated. PS I have a second home in Western North Carolina in the mountains. Tell me how educated these people are. I know I see them frequently. Talk about red neck.

I didn't mean to link less educated with small cities. I was saying states that are less educated and have small cities (no big cities) tend to be more conservative but there are exceptions. Texas has big cities but it's a red state. Also there are small cities in some northern states that have a very intelligent population. Florida is a purple state. It's a very distinctive state. It's in the south, but it's culture is entirely different from the rest of the south.
