    Yep, very good point. Both parties have pet constituencies they feel they have to protect, and they put those relationships above logic.

    I'm willing to listen...

    but your OP didn't make a clear case, one way or the other...

    1990 United States Census - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A net gain of 67 million people in 22 years. That's the entire population of France or UK :eusa_shifty: It only takes 3 years to add a new "Sweden" (9.5 million inhabitants).

    This is one of the main reasons why i hate U.S. vs Europe comparisons regarding poverty rates, inequality, etc. Completely different demographics.
