    I'm for it goes either way, the wealthier areas tend to vote Republican,
    while the Union Thugs are always using their threat tactics to get the Dems votes.
    We have a lot of strong labor unions here, not near as much as we once did, but,
    they are still here none the less. With Ohio being in the middle somewhere, between hard working, small business people, to big labor unions who will "fit
    you with a pair of cement shoes", if you dare go against them...I knew Mass. was
    number one in being the most liberal, although I'm surprised Cal. isn't first. Good
    for Alabama...I'll have to vacation there and spend lots of money!

    Good that Ohio got rid of all those damn unions. Probably a lot more prosperous now than in the 50's and 60's when union membership was high. Non-union jobs where one can raise a middle-class family on a single income must be abundant.

    @RoyFloyd Actually, there was a time when unions were very much needed. They
    were instrumental in getting safer working conditions, fair pay, and supported workers rights. However, they've now degenerated and are strictly about their own
    self interests and lining their pockets with money from the workers they claim to support. Unions illustrate the axiom of,'A cause turning into a movement which then
    becomes a business, then becomes a racket'. Unions, like the government have turned into a 'criminal enterprise', with the exception of a few good ones.( ;

    @mimi57 Certainly unions are no longer needed, because the middle class does so much better now than in 1960. We have full confidence that employers will maintain safe working conditions, fair play, safety, and workers rights out of their renowned benevolence. Lord knows corporations never, ever follow self-interest or line their own pockets. They care about us.

    @RoyFloyd Well, we can't live in Lala land, right? I mean seriously, I've worked for
    both union and non union, and I can say that the majority of the time, the Unions time
    was spent to bail out the same people who were smoking pot in the parking lot, missing work, chronically late, or just had a very poor work performance...they still
    took MY union dues, but, I did my job as I should and never needed them. Also,
    many in my area always had mob ties and still do, and I will not be told who to vote
    for, not by anyone! I'm too independent and prefer to be judged on my own merits.
    I work in the mental health field field, we are a non union facility.

    I'm in VA, actually Northern VA, and being a Moderate, in this area, I catch it from my Republican friends and Liberal acquaintances! Hey, where is VA up there anyway? I'm waiting for my phone call. Wait. I know. I'll be called tomorrow, by a Pakistani or Indian, right at the beginning of the Superbowl! Ack!!!!!

    Well we have SEC Football down here.

    As for politics I don't think any of us matter anyway. Someone else is the pupet master, seems to me.
    Whoever they want, for whatever reason they want them, that's who seems to become President.
    I mean in Obama's first election, this guy comes out if no damn where, a Junior Senator, and kicks Hillary's butt. After the whole country had pretty much already given the nomination to Hillary.
    Personally I am starting to think our votes don't matter anyway.
    We can all stay home and not vote and somehow they will have a winner.
    The biggest lie our gov't ever told us, is that we actually matter anymore.
  • #93
    Electoral vote! We were all told that the election was gonna be decided by 2 states..Ohio and Florida were the swing states.!/25th of the US "decided" for 24/25th of the US. I know I will "catch" flake for this, but, do away with the electoral vote and use the popular vote...IMO
  • #71
    How would you like to define it? I define things by right and wrong. Right now obama is wrong and he's destroying the nation. I see nothing wrong with point that out.
  • #78
    @Neo_NtheMatrix - I'm just tired of the rancor, and everyone seemingly needing to define themselves as either right or left. You define things by right or wrong according to your views, and no one else's. IMO we can all learn something new every day by listening to or reading different views. If we don't, we are defining the term "narrow minded." Obama is just a man and does not have nearly as much power as your fear seems to indicate.

    If we could just cut out and remove the Philadelphia prosperity sink, we'd be well in line for the "most conservative" trophy.
  • #17
    The state in which I live was on the list of the most conservative. My dad considered me a moderate, my friends and peers considerer me a conservative. I think by different generations their definitions of conservative, moderate and liberal are different. I consider myself as a conservative with some moderate leaning. The moderate leanings are usual common sense on things that are liberal that I think will not go away, but do need some tweaking to get them more under control. I am a realist. I know that everything I disagree with will not, and some do not need to go completely. As i already said, just need a little tweaking to bring them back from the far left. I don't think you can pigeon hole many people into just those three groups. Ther are liberals that I know that are so far left, they fell off the measurement ruler. I think there are some major conservatives, but have not met one that would fall of the right end of the ruler. That doesn't mean they don't exist. What I am speaking of is my own personal experiences and views.

    HMMM......heard that federal aid statement before. Never seen a link, so I found one. IT's from 2012 but says 2007 and proves your statement not total true. Read fer yerself there!
    1)Wyoming 2)Alaska 3)Louisiana 4)Mississippi 5)Vermont 6)New York 7)New Mexico 8)North Dakota 9)Rhode Island 10)West Virginia
  • #34
    @stepped_in_it Still, 6 of the top ten states are Red. And really New Mexico can be split, they gave their Electorates to Obama, but they have a Republican Governor. I'd say that's a draw. So 6.5 of the top ten states are Conservative, proving his statement correct.
    If you look at maps, you will find that the South generally ranks in the top 20 which is a better look at how Federal money is spent anyways.
    I think what Harold was trying to point out was the irony of how Conservatives feel about Federal Aid being that their biggest supporters take the most.
    Of course like with any issue you can find articles supporting whichever side you take in the debate.
  • #42
    @Fishbone345 6 out of 10 is better (electorates are the state, not the governor) and then we can agree!
    As for the "irony of how Conservatives feel about Federal Aid being that their biggest supporters take the most." also agree.....makes me glad I'm independent. At least when I make unfounded statements, it's because I'm not to smart, not because my party told me so!

    @Fishbone345 And just who would "Y'all" be? This trash is produced by Hollywood and these people are being told what to do by a director who most assuredly is NOT A CONSERVATIVE. This program is produced specifically to perpetuate a bigoted stereotype and YOU tell the victims they need to stop producing it? I think it's a shame I had to educate you about this program and the people responsible. "Reality tv" isn't reality.

    >>>And where do Texans fall into all of this?<<<

    Well that poll shows Texas is 42.6 Conservative, 34.4 Moderate, and 19.4 Liberal.

    @WMCOL If it wasn't for my family ties...I'd move to Texas, beautiful State, especially San Antonio and I love their "Don't Mess With Texas" motto. If 'push

    Nothing has changed in two centuries. The North East led in education long before the Civil War and the south was the least educated. The advantage to the north, during the civil war, was the educated and skilled work force of the Union Armies that could repair the confederate depredations.

    The worst states in the union are the most conservative. Utah, Alabama, Mississippi, Utah, West Virginia, and well hell basically all of the former confederacy. Pennsylvania, my home state, may not be perfect but at least it's a blue state.

    When polls like this are made, I wish the QUESTIONS asked by the polls were published. This would enable people like me to make an assessment as to their validity. I've found A LOT of polls are lacking in that they ask certain questions about certain issues and then base their opinion of where the person falls on the political spectrum based on only those narrow issues. If you ask me about Gun Control, and the 2nd Amendment, you would classify me as Conservative; if you ask me about abortion and gay rights, you would classify me as Liberal; if you asked me about bringing ALL our troops home from all over the world and legalizing drugs, you would classify me as a Libertarian. If the poll limited itself to asking people how THEY classify themselves, chances are MANY that think like me would feel boxed in and not provide you an answer either way. In the same way that the definition of "race" has relaxed, Americans have to get over the fact that there are many people that DO NOT fit neatly into Conservative, Liberal, Moderate or Libertarian "cubby holes".

    We have quite a few Conservative Areas in Arkansas above Interstate 40 Corridor few Conservatives in Southern Counties. Many becoming aligned with the Tea Party. Arkansas have a Republican for Land Commissioner which is rare.
