Billions in aid go to areas that backed Obama in '08

"Counties that supported Obama last year have reaped twice as much money per person from the administration's $787 billion economic stimulus package as those that voted for his Republican rival, Sen. John McCain"

"The reports show the 872 counties that supported Obama received about $69 per person, on average. The 2,234 that supported McCain received about $34"

"The imbalance didn't start with the stimulus. From 2005 through 2007, the counties that later voted for Obama collected about 50% more government aid than those that supported McCain"

I think the point here is not some much the idea of favoritism given that last statement, but it is interesting to note that those area of the country more dependant on the government voted for Obama. That's the biggest difference I see ideologies. Liberals get elected not on ideas, but on promises to give you a free lunch. These areas in turn become dependant on the government and feel they must vote for a liberal in order to continue leeching off the government. Where is your pride America? What happened to principles of hard work and sacrifice? You should be ashamed that you knowingly indenture yourself to someone else. This country was founded so its people could be free from tyranny. Now, America, we seem to be willing subjecting ourselves to tyranny. Our founding fathers must be rolling over in their graves.
