    It's a liberal myth that is best ignored. It's the kind of falsehood that maintains California isn't bankrupt but Texas is. A response confers an unwarranted dignity.

    red states take more from the federal budget than they put in.

    blue states put in more than they take.

    i don't think i said anything about the deficit. you'd have to take military spending into account.

    Actually SOME red states take more, SOME blue states take more.

    For example, Colorado, a "Blue State" puts in more, New Mexico, another "Blue State," takes twice the dollars that it puts in.

    Texas, a "Red State," takes in slightly more than it gives. Wyoming, also a "Red State," takes more than in gives.

    Regardless, the Deficit remains at $16T, meaning that ALL the states need to spend a helluva lot less. Whether or not this is Military spending, Medicade, or Social Security is like moving the deck chairs on the Titanic.

    The delusion is that someone who couldn't get 51% of the vote in a two-way race won by a landslide.:lol:

    Ha!! I wasn't expecting him to take FL either. He did exacted what he planned to do from the beginning. Concentrate on the battleground States and getting the vote out.

    Mission Accomplished!!
