21. True. And it's a rural/urban division more

than a state v state division.

Blue states have huge red swathes, and red states have intense blue concentrations. (Note Nebraska where we even won an elector!)

And here in WI, for a converse example, I guarantee you there are some deplorables far more deplorable than youíll find even in some red states.

Rather than dumping specific states, I wish we could dispose of the state concept and state borders entirely. In 1700, sure, it took days (weeks?) to travel from Georgia to Maine, and states were much more isolated and distinct. But today you can get from New York to California in hours, and youíll find Olive Garden, McDonalds, and Walmart at both ends of your journey. Communication is instantaneous, and while there are some cultural differences, the basic human needs are the sameófood, shelter, education, etc.

Itís time to just be America, and not the United States of America. Itís ridiculously undemocratic for a candidate to win the popular vote by 7Million votes this year, and there to be any controversy over seating them. Itís even more ridiculously undemocratic for a candidate to have won 3Million more votes in 2016 and NOT become President.
