The Long Full Circle

I'm tired of the republicans saying democrats can't reach out to the red state voters. The Republicans can't reach out to blue state voters either. Bush and Kerry could not reach out like Reagan or Clinton, hence the close numbers that don't offer any kind of mandate. Bush won this election like he's won every single election in his life - by a few percentage points. I think that speaks more towards how many people are willing to vote out of fear: just enough to put him over the top.

Below are two maps. One is the electoral map of 2004, showing the sharp blue state/red state split. The one below it is the sharp split of pro-slavery/pro-rights states from the Civil War. Did we come full circle or have we never changed? Lyndon Johnson, after signing the Civil Rights Act of 1964, said he feared the democrats had lost the south for a generation.

Anche lo spagnolo Alvaro Morata, che รจ appena tornato al Real Madrid dalla Juventus, fa parte del novero di coloro che lottano per la vetta dopo aver raggiunto quota tre reti e la vetta della classifica cannonieri al pari di Gareth Bale, ma giocando meno minuti.Camisetas de futbol 2017,camisetas Sevilla baratas,
