So keep talking Alabama but it is on the edge of being competitive a purple state as well. Both states are bound at the hip karmically. Until you guys quit karma will continue to ride around on a broom and keep hitting this state with the same problems that plague your neighbor to the west. Like here, the film industry is still going on even though both have retarded anti-abortion laws passed by their regressive state legislative bodies. In other words, leave that state alone with the warped quips and attempts to throw shade to act like this place is better than there because both are in the same boat screwed up with regressive, white patriarchal leadership. Birmingham and Huntsville like Atlanta and Savannah are dragging their respective state into the 21st century on their own.
I know you love your state, but come now. SC will go purple before Alabama, and I don't see it for us anytime soon.

I'll reassess if Alabama manages to keep Doug Jones in office next year, if Moore isn't the opponent again at least.

Mutiny77, you have never lived nor done business there, so cut the craptastic assumptions of me living there (which I haven't in years) or you knowing what goes on there (because you don't). Your home state of SC doesn't even have any large progressive metros to pull any votes (no the Upstate doesn't count), so it isn't going to tend purple any quicker before AL anymore than a turtle or tortoise beating one another to win a race.

You are entitled to your own opinions and assumptions but not your own facts. My substantive point still stands and I'm not about to derail this thread any further to feed your unsubstantiated fodder anymore. So okay...

Grew up in Alabama. Still go back frequently and have liberal friends there.


It’s aint anywhere near as close to getting purple as GA. Anything GA does backwards Alabama is basically like “hold my beer”.

I grew in there as well, and occasionally work brings me to there. My point still stands as well, but okay...

Huh? I know you live in Atlanta and travel to other states like NC frequently. Alabama is your home state (which is what I meant by "your state"), so what kind of "craptastic assumptions" are you even referring to?

And you don't know what I know about what goes on there politically. I keep up with plenty of places.

SC is already less red than Alabama--which also lacks a large progressive metro to pull any votes, and no, Birmingham doesn't count--and growing a good bit faster as it is attracting a ton more transplants (SC contains three metros, in whole or in part, that are among the fastest-growing in the entire nation) so yes, the trends would most certainly indicate that it would go purple before AL. But that's still not going to happen anytime soon, and certainly Alabama won't beat SC to that punch.

We are both entitled to our own opinions...with yours being that Alabama is somehow on the verge of going purple because that DEFINITELY doesn't qualify as a fact. Hell I'm real iffy on NC swinging back to the blue column next year (and I actually lived there in 2008 when it did) but somehow Alabama is on its way to becoming a battleground state? Come back to reality sir. This is the South, with Alabama being in the middle of the Deep South. If you can be realistic about the rest of the region, don't have your head in the clouds when it comes to your home state. I know you love it but nah...it's not trending purple and definitely won't get there before or around the same time as Georgia and there's nothing that indicates such. I don't know why this triggers you so, but come now.

What does that all this have to do with the main thread, nothing? I'm done with you on this topic derailing. My substantiated factual points still stand, but believe whatever unsubstantiated opinions you want to. Okay...

I wasn't the one who brought up Alabama, and I wasn't the one who initially followed that person down the rabbit hole like you did. Perhaps you should direct that question elsewhere.

Your points were completely opinionated and not substantiated or factual at all. Somehow you think your home state with no TV/film industry that managed to one-up Georgia with its abortion law is somehow on the verge of trending purple? LMFAO! And yes, let's move on because this is ridiculous.

I made the point to stop throwing shade at AL because both GA and AL are in the same boat. My point still stands, and you butted in and won't leave it alone with derailing nonsense. But okay...
