VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
I do see a trend. I continuously see wealthy, big, corrupt politicians screwing the people and wasting money. The difference between democrats and republicans, republicans will use a credit card to run up debt while democrats just take your money up front and use cash. How the hell anyone can support any party right now is amazing. They ALL have run this country into the ground. They ALL lie, cheat and steal. ALL OF THEM! They have one goal. MAKE MONEY! Name the last president that made a profit (for the country and not big business) in the past 50 years. So I am seeing a trend here. And it appears to be all downhill.
Illinois is Obama's Democrat base.
I can't believe New York is low on this list. I was born and raised on Long Island. We own a small 3 bedroom ranch / 1 bath. On a piece of property less than a 1/3 acre and our yearly taxes are $6000. I love looking back at properties I've owned before and caught a glimpse of one on a canal in Massapequa. Hah, it's over 12,000 a yr. now! This also a small 3 bedroom house /2 1/2 bath. That's worth 12,000. a year? No wonder people are in trouble!
We will all go broke if we retire here in New York. It's going to be the LAND OF THE VERY RICH or THE VERY POOR. In order to stay here the people will have to live like the GOLDEN GIRLS. Band together and live family style. 5yrs. 11months for me to decide.
Connecticut is not a bad state to retire in. It's a bad state to try to survive in- period. Any age, any financial situation, especially small business owners and lower- middle class homeowners. I actually wrote a letter to Gov. Rell a couple years ago, explaining that I, too, would be exodusing this state, and the numerous reasons why-not that I thought she'd care, but I wanted her to know how the government was chasing away native born residents. Except I'm still trying to sell my home that is taxed so ridiculously high no one will touch it with a 10 foot pole. I love Connecticut for it's natural beauty, hate it for it's government.
There is a common thread in all these states....Greed and Corruption!
Then again that seems to be the norm for most states.
What exactly do we like about liberal politics again?
Wow, all blue states. Shocking. Tax and spend, spend, tax and spend, spend, tax and spend, spend....
