    Great diary and I agree with most of it, but since we're talking facts, the Texas thing is wrong - they actually pay (slightly) more in taxes than they take in from the fed.

    That makes it a very rare red state, though - almost all red states take in a helluva lot more from the fed than they shell out.  Texas is only able to do it because the state's so flush with oil - so much so that they're able to survive conservative mismanagement of their economy.  Plus they have several big cities which helps.  Otherwise, they'd be no different than the rest of the red states.

     I always find that ironic that my own state of Mississippi is full of TEA Party morons while our state's clamped so hard on the federal teat.

    Anyway, jgreat diary despite the one lil' inaccurate bit.
