Washington does not have an income tax, Oregon does not have a sales tax.

Not to get off-topic but Mr. Bush and his republican party have spent way more money than most democrats. The days of dems spending and republicans saving are way over.

6. Connecticut
7. Washington
8. Oregon
9. Illinois
10. New Jersey (this one should be moved up higher--forgot about it)
At least you're honest. ROTFL!

You are making a generalization. For one, just because I am not a conservative I am a liberal? Well, I am not, but I am not a conservative neither. Or a Communist or any other ist.

By the way. Some liberals may want to 'redistribute' the wealth (and you are in favor of hoarding it?), but most liberals 'like' taxes because they believe in the fundamental rights of every US citizen to have access to things such as health care and education (among others). Unless everything is 100% privatized, then taxes are what is going to be used to pay for these programs, and the police department, and the fire department, and the CIA and FBI, and politicians salaries, and every branch of the military.....

10. Illinois

3. New Jersey
2. New York
1. Connecticut
Despite 'Hollywood' and a few other areas, California is fairly conservative.

Massachusetts. The only state to vote for McGovern over Nixon. I was living there at the time of Watergate, and ended up putting a bumper sticker on my car "I'm from Massachusetts - don't blame me."

The welfare mother who works for **** wages and can't pay the bills, or the welfare mother that will inevitably lose benefits after 5 years after she reaches her lifetime quota of benefits?
The illegal immigrants that are going to be paying Social Security to your sorry ass when you get old?
Somehow I don't think you thought your position out too well.
