I just happy that after his final term in office, the Bush Dynasty in Texas will be over.

It's kind of funny though that Texas and Florida are two of the fastest growing states. People must want to get away from those unamerican hardcore libs in other states!

Maine. And I think this might be true of some other states that are mostly rural but with few cities. Portland and the area immediately around it (where most of the population is) is fairly liberal-friendly, but the rest of the state is almost entirely liberal-free. And liberal-bashing and blaming is a common sport. Check out the letters columns of the newspapers and online sites - they're still blaming liberals for everything, even though the neocons have had their way without exception for most of the last eight years.

Ya, but as you said most people are in Southern Maine. Most of the POPULATION of Maine is liberal. Or at least close to 50-50. And it seems people in rural Maine are generally more socially liberal then people in rural areas out west, even if they stay strongly economically conservative. Small govt all around seems to be the name of the game up there.

So true, but not all of the anti-liberals are actually conservative. Liberal bashing is so common around here that I think people just do it without really realizing it. I find it amusing to hear someone bashing a liberal, only to have it turn out that they are pretty much a socialist themselves (but of course they will never admit, and in some cases may not recognize it)---kind of like someone who lives in an all white town and claims to be anti-racist but then raises heck if a black stops in town to get a bite to eat.

But hey, it's the American way of life to blame all of your problems on someone else.

Texas is a good place for conservatives, but it doesn't mean it's liberal unfriendly or anything.

The South in general sad to say.
I'm a moderate, but I grew up in a conservative family.
But when Bush is gone, I think this "Bush Dynasty" will be done.
