As for the original question, I don't know. I don't see how anybody could. There are just so many factors now, as it is, and they could ALL change in the course of 50 years. It's a flip of a coin, really. Though I'm tempted to say 'blue' just by virtue of the fact that we have D.C., and you could order anything from there.
We're going for fantasy here boys - make - believe, mixing in fact/fiction/conjecture, projections, witty weavings....

California.
Which state has the most enlisted serving in Iraq per capita?

Which state has paid the highest price in the war per capita?

Certainly not California. Most of the men and women who serve in are armed forces and who overwhelmingly voted for Bush over Kerry by a margin of 4 to 1 do not come from California.

You know what? Blue states would have control of NYC and LA, which in turn means they'd have control of all the network studios/buildings, AND, the big-ass satellite dishes they use to beam their programming, well, EVERYWHERE. Methinks they could spread some nasty rumors about the red states to a lot of people in a short amount of time!

Ever heard of the term, 'underdog'?
Sure, why not. But I'm not taking the premise of this thread seriously and was pointing out some random facts for fun.

Look this is how it's supposed to go:

The red states attack the blue states with combines and shotguns, only to find that the blue states are empty, having all left for Canada.

Canada of course by this time, has a population so low, because the birth rate dropped dramatically BLAH BLAH BLAH~!

See, that's how this works.

I will say it was a bigger majority than he got in 2000.

OK, now why has the birth rate dropped so low in Canada?

Narrow, hardly! Narrow what?

BUSH Jr. won by about 4 million votes!

President BUSH Jr. won 31 states!
Kerry won only 19.

Narrow-minded? U!

Many recently elected Presidents (Truman, Johnson, Carter, Bush Sr.) clearly didn't have a 2nd term. U can bet that wish they did --narrow or not. Don't be so foolish and shallow as to attempt to marginalize victory!

Truman was president from 45 until 53, or are we considering his being a caretaker president.

Um, everyone? Can we all chill out a bit? I let this thread go because it seemed like an interesting premise that might let us tease out some ideas on civil war, national unity, etc. etc...but if we can't mull over these issues more seriously and reflectively, then I have no problem coming back and giving it the ol' close.

Thanks.
