    Well, more than half the state lives in the Twin Cities area here, so it's easier to get people to have similar mindsets, and most Minnesotans make a trip to the Twin Cities at least once every five years, or make trips outstate at similar intervals if they live in the Twin Cities... unlike in California, where there are no less than... 10 MSAs that have 500,000 or more residents, if my memory serves, and California's far more spread out geographically.

    We've been largely at a partisan standstill for most of the last two decades... that's one reason why Jesse Ventura managed to become governor for four years. And the party that backed him will probably not disappear any time soon, based on recent elections.

    Just for reference on how major a factor the Independence party has been in recent gubernatorial elections:

    He is more of a moderate... but he's very anti-"tax". He instead prefers "fees", which are essentially taxes. He's definitely more of a moderate than Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin are, but he's not very smart for cutting the budgets of one of the nation's top school systems.

    Our legislature here is also so partisan that it's gone into extra sessions a couple times since 2004.

    Examples of such monopolies, please. And one thing that shouldn't remain privatized, because it's so vital to our economy, is crude oil. Those companies are getting outspent by foreign-government-backed competitors for new oil well sites, and the US cannot afford an oil crisis on the scale of the ones in the 1970s. It's too vital a resource, and most other countries realize that and financially supply such corporations.

    I live in Minnesota, where, 12 years ago, the entire state was economically awash with money, including the state government itself, which squirreled away that extra revenue into a rainy day fund, but by and ever since 2005, because of budget slashing and tax slashing by Tim Pawlenty, and his fellow anti-tax republicans our infrastructure and schools are suffering, and our state's now in a huge $5 billion deficit, and that rainy day fund was exhausted very quickly. Part of this rapid swing was due to inflation, but not all of it.

    The biggest reason Minnesota's behind much of the nation in recovery is because of it being home to approximately 20 Fortune 500 companies that were hit hard. Our quality of life has actually fallen as our tax rates have fallen over the past decade, too, because of cuts to services many Minnesotans took for granted that don't exist anymore.

    Quote originally posted by FreakyLocz14:
    I don't necessarily think we should tax marijuana, though. We shouldn't be adding more taxes; we need less taxes. Less taxes stimulates the economy.
    What about when public services that the economy depends on, such as road maintenance, take huge budget hits and cannot afford to keep the quality of service that the populace has come to expect from that public service? It doesn't really do much to stimulate the economy when the government has to terminate more employees than companies choose to hire over that same period. Companies, despite having stabilized their finances, are really reluctant to start hiring on more staff.

    I'll admit, that was a pretty awesome response.

    Ok, 'coz I don't read your posts in their entirety so I don't know what side of the argument you're really on. Though, I sort of pick some thing from them and they sound like some Christian's views.

    Anyway, you make some good threads
