Exactly which "libs" are you talking about? Care to elaborate on that a little bit? Most liberals I run across tend to be well educated, have a high income career, are self-supporting, and crime free, except for smoking a little weed every now and then.

Most of the ones under the overpass generally are not political type people and dont follow politics. I'll lay ya 5 that most don't even vote.

Last time I was in New Orleans I was at a stop light near an overerpass by the interstate and an enthusiastic self-employed entreprenuer came out of no where and started washing the windows on my car and I didn''t even have to ask. I was real impressed and I gave him a 5$ bill in addition to my thanks.

Educated... Hahahaha. You must also believe that the rioters in Baltimore are tea-party members.

Next time this " entrepreneur " comes out to wash your windows , tell him to go away and watch what happens . Oh yeah , they vote . Some more than once . The Church buses come and pick them up to go to the polls . Been there , seen it .

I see now, all the fun stuff like prostitution, marijuana, and drinking under age 21 are illegal in Louisiana so amongst other reasons that's why your crime rates are so high, people won't let the government prevent them from having fun even if that gets them busted.

I wonder what all law abiding citizens do on business trips or in the weekends with all the fun stuff being illegal. Maybe y'all should come to Amsterdam one day, all of that is perfectly legal over here.

As it should be IMO. I've spent some time there. I think that New Orleans should be the 'Amsterdam' of the US: A safe, dense, walkable and bikeable city with relaxed drug, alcohol and prostitution policies along with serious flood defenses.

However, this is a very different country with very different views and I doubt it will ever happen.

Louisiana is a Sportsman Paradise- no link needed to provide the obvious.
Louisiana is the home to LSU- the greatest university in the history of the universe.
Louisiana is one of the most religious states around and the cost for a Christian education is far cheaper than most places.. Those facts alone makes us greatness in and of itself.
Louisiana has more festivals and entertainment than anywhere else and second place isn't even close.
Louisiana has some of the friendliest people in America.
Louisiana is in the Deep South- the best part of America by a mile.
Louisiana's cost of living is very affordable.

When you take into account everything we have here, I personally see no reason to ever leave this state unless you want to head to the beaches of Mississippi or Alabama. But that's just me. If you don't like the bayou, then hit the road jack, and don't ya come back no more, no more, no more.
Man; I don't know what you're smoking, but I'd like to have some.

Deep south is the best region in the country? Gimme a break! If any region's the best, it ain't the deep south lol. Try more like Upper Midwest.

I'd love to visit Louisiana, and eat some great Cajun food, and I'll be driving there pretty soon on my way to Florida, but it's not a place I'd live in, no way. I hated living in Florida, and don't look forward to moving back in, so I don't think Louisiana will be much better at all -.-
