    Basically, it doesn't matter where you live, because the heavily populated liberal cities tend to control the politics in the state. People that live in less populated areas have little say in how the state is run. It's just a fact of life......in the rural areas. All of the N.E. has been this way......even the Northern states are getting more liberal. Bob

    You're getting close to the truth, Bob.

    Take a look at a US county map that shows the results of the recent presidential election to see where the divide really is. Better yet, look at a national voting precinct map. They both show that it is an urban vs. rural/smaller city divide that politically separates the nation. Yes...there are a few rural places that vote Blue, but those can be explained by FedGov entitlement dependencies, or urban workers with long commutes in tiny northeast states.

    The battle for controlling political philosophy is not so much Red State vs. Blue State.......it is Red country and towns vs. Blue urban "city-states".
    In fact...when reduced to its lowest denominator the battle is between the whole dadgum Red country vs. the thin Blue I-95 corridor from DC-Boston + Chicago + LA.

    Someone living in rural western Mass. probably has much more in common (with respect to conservative political philosophy) with folks in north Texas than he does with nearly everyone in Boston.

    Very true, XT.....................I've family in So/ Western Penna..........with a history that pre dates the revolutionary war...........and they bear no more resemblance to the NE metro corridor than does any of the western states...........just look at the last election results......lends credence to the call that Pennsylvania consists of Philadelphia on one end, Pittsburg on the other.............with Alabama in between!

    And I say again, THANK GOD for the Electoral College system or those liberal bastions would bring us all into tow!

    Our forefathers are spinning like a rotisserie in their graves. It's really hard to stomach what New England has become.
