    So you think we should let the red states just fail and collapse ?

    If anything, this proves that socialism works, the states that can't take care of themselves are helped out by those that can.

    It shows that socialism works in the USA.

    You also have made a choice to buy health insurance, you pay every month to take care of other people knowing that when you need help, it will be there.

    You have made a choice to buy into socialism.

    Sorry you are right. In the end, most red states are depending on socialism.

    No, I think California clearly shows socialism doesn't work, or the state wouldn't be in such a shambles.
    And I was going to respond to your assertion that me buying private health insurance is somehow an example of socialism, but I am tired and getting a little confused....

    Cali is sending more money to the government than they get back, this is because there are many many red states that need help. They have governors that can't seem to govern.

    Now if those red states could get their act together, Cali would be able to keep more of their money.

    The states with the highest unemployment, the highest taxes, the highest cost of living, the worst economy, etc are in the blue states. Suck on that. I think I will pass on Governors like Blago, Corzine, Patterson, Bloomberg, Arnuld, etc.

    2. What I find interesting is the geography of this.
    Here's a map I whipped up:

    That, and the fact that he can't even read his own lies, make him a nominee for "Retard of the Year".

    They are depending on socialism just like most red states.

    Maybe read the thread before posting next time.
    according to the map you posted - Cali is supposedly a donor state . . . .

    and it's not like any fucking retard who can type or copy/paste can make their own website which will say just about anything they like making up what ever facts they want to "support" their claims . . . OH WAIT - that can happen.

    Funny how Kiki posts a map from 2002 and thinks we won't notice. Hey DUmbass, try posting something a little more current.
