1. I feel your pain...we all do...
This is probably the stupidest thing I've been hearing. Though I'm not currently residing in a "red state", two of the three states I've lived in were very "red states" (Virginia and Colorado). So I know a thing or two about people there. Generalizing that all people in red states are illiterate Republican hicks who wouldn't vote for a Democrat if you paid them is wrong. Don't forget there are Democrats and progressives EVERYWHERE, so by making this generalization you are automatically disenfranchising those who aren't part of the description. Besides, what troubles me most is not only does a lot of anti-Southern sentiment circulate from this, but that in a country that is deeply divided, if you're saying they need to secede, YOU'RE NOT HELPING.
