Maybe if they had better tax and economic policies they wouldn't need so much aid from the feds? I dunno.

See how government policies affect the US population? All this post is is basis for resentment from those who pay higher taxes. I pay more, I should get more!!

Now focus that thought on individuals and you can see why those who EARN their wealth are reluctant to have it 'spread' around.

Government programs use some sort of criteria for the distribution of taxes. It stands to reason that those who don't fall under that criteria would resent those that do. That is why 'spreading the wealth around' does more to divide the nation than if the government just stayed the heck out.

Again? With a bit of clarity perhaps?

This should show you how messed up things are, the poorest states in the union are Republican states, logically that makes no sense.

Yep. Here's the same data compared to median household income. So the states that stand to gain the most from Obama's tax policies are the least likely to vote for him and vice versa. Intriguing.

It shows you how Republicans have milked poor people into voting for them over social issues more than financial ones......they remain poor and vote for a party that doesn't help them because they go to church and don't like gays.

Makes a ton of sense huh?

You may want to consider the population of red states, versus blue states....and apply the same concepts as one would consider when discussing economies of scale.



Of course that could side-track the demagoguery, so why bother...eh?

Basically, I think it speaks to how easily people can be manipulated, or the stupidity of the public, probably both.

Interesting viewpoint. I would argue Democrats do the same thing. They throw welfare programs at the poor when all it does is make a segment of our population dependant on the government, thus remaining poor.
