I grew up in a Democratic stranglehold. Many races saw the D run unopposed. The primaries for the D nod were hotly contested because it was the same as a general election win.

The Dakota's, LOL, each has been staunch Red states for ages and both have the Minimum of 3 Electoral votes. Not much to brag about there.

The news is from last year but I thought it was hillarious how the Democratic party is basically even having a hard time finding anyone to run as a Democrat.

I guess out of 94 house seats in North Dakota that Republicans control 81 of them. Sort of sad that 13 of those districts think that the party of Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi should represent them.


I guess when they have such unemployment, very few homeless, fantastic education and career opportunities with excellent amenities in the urban centers that who needs more than one party.

I personally think it is a wonderful thing that people in the Dakotas have such uniform integrity that they have difficulty even finding candidates that will admit to being a Democrat.

I grew up in Colorado Springs and I heard rumors that some employers would do a Republican litmus test foir career purposes.
The Dakotas have boom or bust economy, with a large dependency on oil. And when they are in a bust economic cycle, who wants to be homeless in the Dakotas in winter?

The Dakota's have very stable economies with very low unemployment rates and high purchasing power due to relatively high per-capita income and low housing costs.

Lots of young married homeowners because of the strong Republican middle-class economy. It is a fairy-tale Norman Rockwell culture in the Republican Dakota's.

States like Democratic California have a small millionaire and billionaire elite with a massive, massive underclass that lives a 3rd world nightmare. At least in Brazil the underclass have favelas, with Democratic California they have sleeping bags and tents.

The Republicans who run the Dakotas are all about keeping taxes low for the middle-class, just like with President Trump's middle and working class tax cuts.

Despite, the low oil prices the state of North Dakota has a low 2.4% unemployment rate and is growing at a rate similar to the rest of the country.

Oddly, even with the rock-bottom oil prices and very low commodity prices they still have a higher job growth rate than Los Angeles. Los Angeles is in a once in a lifetime boom and they still have lower growth than North Dakota which in the midst of low commodity and oil prices.

The unemployment rate even if the low commodity and oil prices is around half of the rate of Los Angeles!

The oil boom was just icing on the cake. Unlike, states full of Democrats the Dakota's have a massive middle-class that owns nice, big single-family homes with low commute times, big yards and good wholesome values.

I guess thanks to the cold winter that they don't have a homeless crisis like Los Angeles. Los Angeles homeless population is nearly as many as the entire city of Bismarck.

I am just so proud of states like Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota that want nothing to do with the Democratic agenda.

The Republican agenda is about a strong, strong middle-class and conservative family-values.

The Democratic agenda is about third-world filth and disease,shallow and vain Hollywood Values and some widest income disparities the world has ever seen.

Did you even look at your own statistics?

No, you didn't.

From the pages you linked:

North Dakota April 2017 employment: 410.3K
North Dakota Sept 2017 employment: 408.0K
-------------------------------------------------------------
A LOSS of 2.3K employed people.

Los Angeles April 2017 employment: 6,425.2K
Los Angeles Sept 2017 employment: 6,500.0K
------------------------------------------------------------
A GAIN of 74.8K employed people.

This has got to be about the half-dozenth time I've caught you failing to understand or paying attention to the statistics you are citing.

It is like that in many northeast states as well. The difference is that a lot of people actually live here and it is the GOP that cannot get candidates to run.

Our entire government is in shambles. Republicans control everything yet can't get anything done.
