Still trying to make the election make sense?

I was reading an article in the New York Times Magazine today that discussed some of the disparities between the red and blue states. Statistics included: the five wealthiest states are blue, while the five poorest went red. Blue states tend to give more to the federal government than they receive, while red states, as a group, receive more than they pay.

Interesting that this is the lament of a NYTM writer, who under normal circumstances would be a loud proponent of the redistribution of wealth idea that's so popular with fans of democratic socialism.

I guess it's really just about getting your way.
