Exactly and many of the people who do vote Dem or Rep are not hardcore liberals or conservatives. They basically choose the more palatable option.

The closest you will get is something like Wyoming or Utah for red and Vermont on the blue side.

You would have to fly around (not over) us to travel around your country then.

Or....Blues States could form several smaller countries.

We'd just build high speed rail under you.

Non-sense. This elction was close for a year with a sitting president. Otherwise it confirmed what mid term results in which republicans made gains in congress and statehouses.Politics as usual ;really.

That already happened once, but the "blue states" made them return to the union by force.

All this stereotyping is part of the problem.

True, but please take a look at the bible thumpers in your region then talk about all the stereotyping. I want religion completely out of politics. Your region put Paul Broun in the House of Rep. He is actually mentally ill.

I can't speak for the people in his district, only they can. And I agree with you about religion, I would prefer a clean break between church and state, but I also know that isn't likely to happen. Even if you removed all religious references, etc from politics, people will still bring their beliefs, morals, values, whatever to the table. And for many, those are based on religion.

So, would you prefer that they not say anything, thus appearing mainstream until it's too late, or know right up front what your dealing with?

And whether I agree with him or not, which I don't, I do admire him for standing up for what he believes in rather than bending to whatever is popular today.

Another good point. When Obama was first elected Rick Perry mentioned secession and some Texans cheered the idea. I'd love to see Texas try that when yesterday Obama got 41% of the vote in Texas. Sounds like a civil war would break out in Texas if they seceded, or at the very least a vicious insurgency would crop up and wreck the state for years to come.

Most of them have heard of the movie, Soylent Green, and surely they must think that the way the people of that movie provide the method. I am old enough that their main theory, Obamacare, will provide death panels to allow we old people to die peacefully in beds, or hallways, and our bodies can be used for those wafers the people ate in that movie.
