105. That, On A Per Capita Basis, It Is, Sir, Is Established Fact

It is fact the south also generally displays higher rates divorce, teen pregnancy, and incarceration, including execution, and a variety of other indicators of sub-optimum social performance. It has higher rates of adherence to fundamentalist creeds. Southern states are much more likely to be subsidized by the Federal government, receiving much more money from Washington then they pay in federal taxes than do northern states typically.

The point of remarking on these facts is to demonstrate that the claims of conservatives, rightists, Republicans, that they represent and embody the stable, moral, and productive elements of society, are lies, and lies on a scale that deserves wide condemnation. Republicans, rightists, conservatives represent, in fact, the destabilizing, immoral, and leeching elements of society. The fact is that when Republicans hold power for any length of time in a state, all indices of a good society decline, often steeply. Republican government is bad for societies, bad for people, disastrous for the country, and the proof is conditions in those states where they dominate politically. What they propose not only will not make things better anywhere, it is certain to make them worse, wherever they are instituted.
