Totally OT: for USA voters, just a thought....


Political commentary/thought of the day.....
What color is YOUR state, and can you figure out WHY???
LOL!
MY state is considered RED, yet I know more people (7 out of each 10) (!!!!) who
vote Dem.....
I don't GET it!

Mine is the white rose county. Nothing political though, the white rose was adopted by the York family for its purity - the Rosa Mundi , rose of the world, the Blessed Virgin Mary. Later, much later, the county of Yorkshire used the white rose as its symbol.
I don't think our counties have colours.

I'm in California. About as blue as they come. Of course, if you break it down further you find that there's a blue coastline and mostly red the rest of the state. Then again, since most of the population lives on that blue coastline area it's no surprise. The bigger cities tend to be more "liberal", the rural areas more "conservative", and the state is actually very centrist and has a good amount of common sense on most issues.
I'm in OC, however, and it doesn't get much redder than this. Then again, we do have one Democratic Representative, Loretta Sanchez (who managed to bump off Bob Dornan years ago), and I am hearing a lot of grumbling about the economy and Iraq and the high cost of health care and... OC still isn't likely to go blue any time soon, but it won't be nearly as red this time around as it has been.

Hi, Kim! Long time no *see*! Waving from Tennessee! We have a Dem gov, except I think he's conservative as all get out. (reminds me of the exact opposite of long ago Pres Ike, who ran as a Rep, but was liberal/moderate/Dem at heart! We got quite a few Rep. state senators and representatives after the Waltz Across TN debacle that caught some of our incumbant Dem's with their hands in the cookie jar. Strangely, tho, over 73% of the people I've talked to, people I know, etc vote DEM! Go figure. The registrar in our county told me that 90% of her new registrants this year listed themselves as DEMOCRAT, so perhaps we'll be a blue state once more.... Noreen mind-boggled. LOL

Mine was a Political query, Red is for Republican, Blue is for Democrat, and due to the Electoral College DEBACLE, rather than the true POPULAR vote, various states are wrongly referred .... Noreen
