was protesting ObamaCare.
I am not sure I've seen our country divided up in four easy pieces on a map. If I have, it's been a long time ago. Ohio is almost Mid Atlantic and down here in southern Ohio, some of us talk like we are from the south. That would be me!
This map makes sense agriculturally. The states in the Midwest or green section farm pretty much alike in my travels. So do the three other regions.
Our people seem to be divided, too. I am not sure it's four pieces but two are easy to pick out, conservative and non-conservative. I won't call them Liberal but many are.
This piece talks about two kinds of people in the world, kind of one looking up and one looking down. I found it quite humorous.
Everyone we meet has a quip about our government today. Everyone I meet calls it dysfunctional or not functioning like it should or could or used to. It's nothing like when I was a kid, does every grandpa say that?
"Americans couldn't be more divided in their basic preferences for the role of the U.S. government, with roughly one-third favoring an active role for the federal government, one-third favoring a limited role, and one-third something in between. And that has generally been the case for the last few years.
At the same time, Americans seem to favor a less active role for the government than is currently the case, perhaps partly due to a desire for lower taxes but also partly due to perceptions that the current government tends to be more on the active side.
Thus, Americans at this time may be more likely to favor proposed solutions to the major problems facing the country -- including the economy and jobs -- that rely less on government intervention and more on the actions of private entities, including businesses and individuals."
I am the do it yourself category with limited government intervention. Which one are you?
