That's a bit of a reach. Strife takes two. Also, if Republican policies are so economically destructive, please, please explain how it is that Texas has a relatively strong economy and California, Illinois, New York, have relatively weak economies.
If Republican policies are so socially destructive, how would you account for the relatively low crime rates and high educational achievements of Kansas? Of Utah? Or even Texas, if you want to say it's demographics and you're willing to match Texas with a Democrat region having comparable demographics?
