and what new technologies need are creative people, and creative people are drawn to tolerant, liberal, arts-oriented cities like San Francisco, New York, LA, Boston, Seattle, etc.

I think it's a point for the US, too. If the States weren't importing such vast amounts of oil from the middle east, their own resources would be exploited in just a very few years.
And this efficiency debate always comes up with new technologies. Or that they are not as good, yet. E.g. electric cars. Well, true that. But if industry didn't start on a small level and grew from there, progress would never be made. And you can't expect a new technology to be at the same level as that which has been around for decades. No reason to never promote it, in my eyes.

The red states already had it so bad they couldn't fall much anymore.

If you think it's as simple as that, you may think about going back to school.

As usual, I'm going to ask for a citation here. I know I won't get one, but I'll ask anyway.

as ever, it's the conservatives. they're busy screaming about Roman Polanski while the hills north of Hollywood burn.
As ever


So more taxes on job creators, more illegal immigration, more social diversity, and more subsidies for green jobs is the way out?

Oh, and one of my all-time favorite Youtube videos.

There's shared blame for the housing crisis...but California's own Maxine Waters says it all at 0:40.

So the way you vote determines your state's economy? It has absolutely nothing to do with what resources, what kind of industries drive that state's economy, or anything like that, it all depends on if you like Romney, McCain, Obama or Clinton right? What a joke.

cutting taxes certainly hasn't gotten anyone anywhere.
