So do those same states have a right to complain when their economy suffers because a lot of their money is moving to more socially progressive states?
Nope, because they made the choice to stay behind and they would suffer the consequences. Thing is, it would probably never come to that because the Governor's of those states would realize that they're losing people to other states, and change things to make it more appealing so the people who live there don't leave.
Or maybe they just voted for Obama because they don't like right wing wackos who associate themselves with gun wackos, born again wackos and rich corporate wackos. You do know those people could be left wing, right? You don't seem too bad but don't fall for Paul Ryan, he is just bullshitting people...just like how he said he liked Rage Against The Machine, how the fuck would he not know the message from De La Rocha and co? Lol!
I hope things go well for Obama but the Tea Party nutters will try everything to block off Obama. Obama has done well considering the mess he has had to put up with from Bush and co.
It's going to be a bit before everything is cleaned up or somewhat minimized and then fixed up later on..I'm 110% behind Obama.
When you mention the people who "could be left wing", are you talking about the people who voted for Ron Paul in the primaries, or Libertarians in general? If so, then those two are one in the same. Libertarians disliked Obama, and probably would have voted for Romney if push came to shove, although that was thrown out of the window after the GOP Convention. Outside of just spite, I doubt any Libertarian would have voted for Obama in the election, as he is against nearly (if not) everything they believe.
I saw a clip a couple of years ago and it was from a 2008 Presidential Debate. Paul was talking about something (think it was foreign policy) and Romney quipped in by saying that he's been "reading too much of Ahmadinejad's press releases" or whatever. Paul come back by saying "Yeah, make fun buddy" or something along those lines. Funny how the joke seems to be on Romney now for treating Paul like dirt.
