    America's 10 Poorest States: 24/7 Wall St.

    If the Democrats only vote to give more free shit to the poor....why are their states usually more wealthy? And if GOP policies are truly meant to make everyone wealthier, to REALLY help the poor by getting them jobs.......then why are the poorest states so RED???

    Poorest: Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, W Virginia, Louisiana, South Carolina (look at the pic, they have the yellow "Dont Tread on Me" flag flying ABOVE their own state flag what a bunch of yahoos), Kentucky, Alabama, North Carolina.


    America’s Richest States - 24/7 Wall St.

    Richest: Maryland, Alaska, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Virginia, Hawaii, Delaware, California.

    With the exception of Alaska....few of the richest states seem to hold a high number of...Tea Partiers. But among the poorest states.....seems there is a Tea Party every weekend.

    I dont get it. Seems the poorest states would be filled with the most Democrats (vote to give more to the poor) and the richest states would vote to give less aid to the poor and be filled with Republicans.

    Because dumb asses can only understand the simplicity of 17th century economics - the economics of agrarian monarchies. So they vote GOP - a party that is trying to reverse 2 centuries of economic and political evolution.

    California and Connecticut are rich because of defense contracts.

    Connecticut is also the insurance capital of the world. The financial and insurance services sector earned 40 percent of corporate profits this decade.

    You can't just use average income to determine wealth, you have to figure in cost of living and standard of living. I don't make allot of money, but I have a good standard of living because of lower taxes and lower cost for services and commodities.

    Good question! Mainly because right wingers are poor and stupid. They seem to think that being poor, stupid, and obedient sheep to the (R), will one day "trickle down" and magically make them rich.

    These numbers have to be put in perspective because republican states are WAY cheaper than democrat states.
