Move to Mississippi if you think it's so great that they get more federal tax dollars. I'll stay here!

Though - i'd love to have every state in the Union that takes more than it sends kicked out of our Union. I bet a lot of Republican politicians wouldn't like that though - they'd never hold national office again.
As pathetic as it is, we actually have significantly higher unemployment then "states like WV, MS, KY, etc"

Only 3 states in the union are worse then NJ in terms of unemployment

VPs actually don't do that much although they've had more influence (see Darth Cheney) lately. They attend funerals and ribbon-cutting ceremonies.

EBWick--A few days ago, I sent you a DM, but I suspect that you have not noticed this message waiting for you. Could you take a look at this message and send me a reply? I would be very appreciative!

that may be true but we still don't have the same number of people dependent on gov't, in one way or another.

Why are people debating about the personalities of these candidates. Senators vote in-line with their party 95%+ of the time. So all you're voting for when you vote for a senator is a party vote, the specific person occupying that seat is meaningless in today's Washington.

this is why i think the geniuses that pretend they are smarter than everyone else because they arent loyal to one party are fools (when it comes to legislators). you may think you are so smart by picking individual candidates and not only voting D or R, both those people you vote for will vote along the party line the vast majority of the times.

that may be true, but some senators do more to work with the other party to draft the legislation. those party line stats aren't always useful, as they don't reflect the work that went into drafting the law.
