    Red states outnumber blue states almost 4 to 1 - a number that increased last year as Iowa and New Mexico went from blue to red. Even in the so-called traditional blue states, red counties are a growing force.
    And yet the sitting Republican president won the popular vote by only about 3%. And New Hampshire went from red to blue. So the margin is not nearly as wide as it is being portrayed.

    Re: Whither America?

    I'm sure to get bashed to hell in a handbasket, but here goes. I believe the world is perfectly capable of doing without 'money'. Who cares whether the rest of the world won't lend us money? Just create it ourselves! Basically, money itself is completely worthless, so why are we even worrying about it? I just laugh at all this inflation and 'decline in value of the American dollar' talk. Of course, inflation is a real thing in that prices of products over years do rise. It doesn't have to be that way, though. Still, I believe that society is perfectly capable of making do with the same prices for the same products everyyear. Let the difference in quality of products determine which products are sold, not the price. For example, set the price of the basic, generic pencil to cost 2 cents. It will cost that much every year. Because there would be no inflation, prices wouldn't rise, there wouldn't have to be increases in salary for the same title (merit and title would determine salary). However, one could choose to purchase certain pencils because they have a different type of lead, over other pencils. Maybe I should join the Mennonites, or a bargaining club.
