To say more populated areas should count less is ridiculous. Let's let those areas pay less in taxes then. Why should they contribute more but have their votes count less? Rural areas receive so much more in federal dollars because they don't have the money to support infrastructure, but their votes count as much as three times as much as an urban vote.
Guess the Democrats should learn to care about more than just 4 states and a handful of cities.

Generally when a football team loses, they try to improve in the areas which were the main reasons they lost.

Not the Democrats, they just plan to keep on losing with their girl Hillary as their mouthpiece, lolz.

Losers.
Time for them to keep their money at home. Don't hire people from other states, don't let their representatives vote for projects that benefit other states, keep the money within the blue states and let the red states learn how to pay for themselves. And while those blue states have strong agriculture, also shop for food globally so the red states don't benefit from their food dollars either. We can definitely play this game of red vs. blue. If blue state votes count less, keep their money within blue regions. The tribalism has become so bad at this point that the country is due to split within decades IMO.

Nope sorry only you think like that. The Democrats will be pandering to red states from now on after Trump gave em the beat down and made em cry like little girls.

You're living in a fantasy land of some sort of wierd extreme leftism which is exactly what the Democrats want to distance themselves from.

You can't win just because you think your little suburban yuppie land with people sipping Starbuck's is the only part of the country that matters.

You're on deserted island most people don't think you like in America. You're always welcome to move!

As if the only example is this thread lolz....

Heartbroken Libs cried about it for months after the election on Twitter, Facebook and on this forum in dozens of threads..... still do sometimes. Just look at how some in this thread are rehashing the numbers. It really doesn't take much to get you guys all teary eyed and foot stomping..

Sorry if posts like the OP keeps picking at your scabs.

The western coast is all blue now. All of it. And the west coast economy is doing extremely well. To say Trump is unpopular in the west is an understatement but Trump is unpopular throughout most of the country. It's coming to the point where half the country can't stand the other half - that's just reality. Trump is a minority elected president with the lowest approval ratings in recorded history.

Why does Trump brag about how rich he is ?

Why does Trump brag about how smart he is ?

Why does Trump brag about how he could shoot someone and not lose a single supporter ?

Why does Trump brag about how big his crowds were ?

Why does Trump brag about how many words he knows ?

Why do Trumpees brag about how wonderfully Trump is doing ?

Why do Trumpees brag about how he says what he thinks ?


Those are the $64,000.00 questions.

JOOC, re the bolded, what would your cutoff point be? Would you require people to be natives, or would one's entire adult life be sufficient? Or would hiring someone from a blue state other than Washington be okay? If so, what would your criteria be to qualify as a blue state?

Notice the irrelevance of everything above with the exception of the bolded.

Keep it regional. Hire from the West Coast (California, Oregon), North (Minnesota, Chicago) and Northeast. Interview the people from the middle and south to give them hope, then tell them no. In time, they'll figure it out and stay home. Make them support themselves back at home. We have too many moving to Washington (for example) as it is.

That is a lot easier to do in the Seattle area (where Seacove lives) than it is in many other places .
