1. I don't think that's realistic, GOP gerrymandered all the districts in 2010

8. Bingo. There are a lot of people that move out to rural areas

 

because they don't want to deal with people or diversity.

15. It's a terrrible thing. They drool over the thought of people in cities dying from want, but we are

the ones who buy their goods and keep them viable.

They're sick and will kill anything that isn't identical to them.

I know there are pockets of Democrats, progressives and liberals in those areas, but they are literally beaten down if they try to reason with the neanderthals among them.

They have left America and the Dream behind unfortunately.

13. Precisely. These maps greatly distort reality

Oklahoma has a population total of 3.8 million people. Obama won over 5.5 million in California alone.
