My theory is that the states that gave Senator John McCain his biggest margin of victory are the states where Conservative ideas about government are practiced the most at the local level. The States that gave President Obama his biggest margin of victory are the states that practice Lefty ideas the most at the local level.
McCain’s biggest margin of victory states Obama’s biggest margin of victory states
By Conservative ideas I mean Social Darwinism ( Everyone should try to rise themselves up by their bootstraps and those who can’t get left behind). Although as I will show later in another diary that Conservatives talk a great game but in reality just want government checks.
By Lefty Ideas I mean exactly what that Commie Sandal Wearing long Haired Socialist JC said
That Commie Socialist Left Jesus Christ once said
That which you do onto others is that which You do onto Me
Now then economic theories are all fun to argue about but how do these theories work in the Real World?
Now then how do these states rate as far as income?
States ranked by median household income
45 Oklahoma Red $41,664 5 Hawaii Blue $64,098
19 Wyoming Red $52,664 20 Vermont Blue $51,618
14 Utah Red $55,117 16 Rhode Island Blue $54,119
37 Idaho Red $44,926 15 New York Blue $54,659
46 Alabama Red $40,489 10 Delaware Blue $56,860
4 Alaska Red $66,953 17 Illinois Blue $53,966
48 Arkansas Red $37,823 1 Maryland Blue $69,272
41 Louisiana Red $42,492 6 Massachusetts Blue $64,081
47 Kentucky Red $40,072 9 California Blue $58,931
44 Tennessee Red $41,725 3 Connecticut Blue $67,034
Notice the top ten Red States have 6 members in the 10 lowest median household income club and one member of the top ten highest median household income club.
The top ten blue states however have 5 members in the top ten highest median household income club and no members in the 10 lowest median household income club.
Conclusion helping your neighbor is actually helping yourself in the long run. This is a fact that JC should have mentioned in the Bible. But it takes Science and Statistics for us to prove why we should help each other as the Bible says.
It should be noted that while Social Darwinism claims that it is a science there is no Real World proof that it works quite the contrary.
