commented on Ohio's GOP Uses Bestiality Ban To Prevent Cleveland From Raising the Minimum Wage
Why are rural communities so concerned with their urban neighbors? One reason could be that they depend heavily on each other and therefore have a mutually symbiotic relationship. Another reason could be that the two communities dislike and ridicule each other and will always stick-it-to-em whenever they get the chance.
Why do companies keep wages low when it costs them in the long run? Perhaps because there's so much competition, they can't afford to stay in business unless they pay the lowest wages and buy the cheapest products. In my opinion, businesses like that don't deserve to be in business. Part of the reason I'm in favor of increasing minimum wages is because I'd like to see those hapless businesses go out of business. Better businesses will pick up the slack.

Couldn't agree more.
Democrat voters really annoy me. It's like they're permanently stuck in drama mode. Skip voting, skip voting, skip voting, OMG! THE REPUBS ARE RUINING EVERYTHING, WE MUST VOTE THEM OUT! repubs get voted out, dems try to clean up the mess, dem voters get pissy that things aren't cleaned up instantly and that the dem politicans aren't paying enough attention to their pet project, skip voting, skip voting, skip voting... repeat for all time.
With republican voters it's simple: is it an election? vote republican. period. no I don't need to know who the candidate is or anything about him. just vote for him and then return and do the same thing two years later.

Possibly, but it would really depend on population. Hell, combine N & S Dakota, and Nebraska, and Wyoming, AND Montana into one big state. It'd still have an insignificant population. Combine New Hampshire and Vermont.
Kansas and Oklahoma and Missouri and Arkansas
Connecticut and Rhode Island
Delaware and Maryland
Might as well just combine Alaska and Hawaii together for shits and giggles too
Or, refusing that, why don't we just remove the idiotic rule that states get electoral votes equal to both their senators and representatives? Make it representatives only. That way each vote in Wyoming wouldn't be 4 times as powerful as each vote from New York and so forth.
