red state socialism

WHY RED STATES HATE GOVERNMENT

Because they imagine themselves as free enterprise rugged individualists, but they actually depend more heavily than do blue states on federal subsidies.  It’s the very “socialism” that makes them see red.

This also suggests the Right’s anti-government, slash the deficit (except the military and wealthy tax cuts) crusade won’t have the legs they think it will. They depend too much on that same government money… which they happily take and then hate themselves for in the morning.
