Here is another map that provides a clearer view of the United States than the misleading All or Nothing Red vs Blue maps in the OP.
This is a precinct map showing the percentage of the vote in 2008.
AS you can see, thee is no Red vs Blue,
but all shades of purple.
The South is BEAUTIFUL,
and belongs to us ALL.
Many areas are BLUE, or on the cusp of going Blue.
Instead of smugly pointing fingers from a lofty perch,
MOVE to The South.
Claim YOUR piece,
and help us change The South.
The benefits for YOU:
*Low Cost of Living
*LOW Winter Energy Consumption
*Long Growing Season
*Pristine, Inexpensive, Non-Toxic Land
*Abundant Clean Water
*Clean Rivers (You can actually EAT the fish you catch!)
*The Opportunity to become a Producer instead of a Consumer.
*Radically reduce YOUR Carbon Footprint
*Your BLUE vote weighs MORE
*The Peace of Mind knowing you are Making a Difference instead of just bitching!
...but whatever you do,
do NOT move to the Ouachita Mountains of West Central Arkansas.

If you Work for a Living, do NOT trust ANY politician who espouses a belief in Free Trade, Free Markets, or an Invisible Hand. NONE of those exist, and that politician is NOT your friend.
