I'm interested in the establishment of causation in this instance. Blue states are also known for being mega industrial centers. California, New York, Washington -- all traditionally blue states, and all traditionally big on industry. I'm also curious how you reconcile California's indebtedness and Texas's lack of indebtedness with your assertion. Certainly comparisons can be made regarding Texas's abysmal social service quality, but that is not your assertion.The Blue states are the economic engine of the United States. With few exceptions, the Red states survive because of federal government largess and subsidies which flows from the Blue states.
