14. depends on how you define better?
If I was a Repub, only looking out for number one, then my financial bottom line is considerably better off since we live very simply and save diligently and are healthy. I might have enough to move into a gated, guarded community next to the golf course where I can ignore the riff-raff and count on rent-a-cops to keep the scum away from me.

But as a proud liberal, I see schools that have gone to shit, good jobs replaced with McJobs, environmental neglect, world distrust and hatred towards America, 1500 grieving familes here, 100,000 grieving Iraqi families and know that my well-being is only as good as my neighbor's well being, and when the Bushco chickens come home to roost, we will all be hip deep in chicken shit.
