I think they both have mental disorders and just spout talking points like any politician. The neoconservatives and social conservatives have little in common with the Republican party of the past. For evidence look at NH. Many Republicans there, but very few neoconservatives or social conservatives.

How about Socialists? Communists? Are you OK with them?

There's really nothing wrong with the science behind communism and socialism, in fact Democratic states are historically the most unsuccessful. (USA is a baby in terms of it's lifespan, as well as France since the French Revolu)

One of the main appeals to me is: I'm bored (happens to you no matter what city you live in, even NYC) and where can I go from here to enjoy a different environment without flying there?

76 miles from Milwaukee to Chicago. It' an easy drive from Madison, too.

Isolated Minneapolis? 7-8 hours to Chicago? 9-10 hours to Winnipeg?

That alone lessens the appeal of Minneapolis. But then, again, you have the jewel of Minnesota 140 miles away on Lake Superior.

And why advertise all those lakes? Inland lakes, to me, spell annoying insects.

If liberal? Minnesota weren't so hypocritical, and made it easier to open up neighborhood bars, there'd be more drunks in Minnesota and it would be a more fun state to visit.

What's the tally? Number of bars in Minnesota vs. Wisconsin? Anyone know?

But let's a Wisconsite answer this. A Minnesotan discovering the results of such a search might be too embarrassed to reveal the statistics correctly.
A Minnesotan might include A & W's in the tally.

Scuzzy, but fun. Love those generic bars in Superior, it's worth staying there just to pub crawl at night and not worry about getting a DUI. Being a long-time lover of Tijuana (check my user name!) I may be going too far and calling it the Tijuana of the North.

I say, stay overnight at that old landmark hotel in downtown Superior, pub crawl at night, nurse your hangover in Duluth the next day and do some sightseeing, take in Minnesota Point, return to Superior at night and have a blast!

No surprise to any visitor driving around Lake Calhoun or Lake of the Nimby's, where the rich, anti-development, anti-density, not-in-my-backyard residents reside.

Has a strong smell of Southern California: Santa Monica/Malibu/Orange County.

No high rises, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez! Don't spoil my precious, selfish view! It's mine, mine, mine!
