    That would be in support of the previously noted notion about voter stupidity.

    It appears that historically they do vote party in General Elections. Especially in this day and age of an increase in partisanship.

    Do you really live in Bellevue, ID a town of around 2,500 people, you speak of folks here fearing others so much we carry guns all the time, checking the crime rates it appears that not much happens there, no murders, home invasions, drive by shootings, if you live there you live in a near crime free zone compared to many here, many would call it a paradise.

    I carry a gun, I fear no man, why you ask, because I carry a gun and have trained to use it and happily never had to, but please enlighten we fearful here on how to protect ourselves where we live, how many distant 15 round mag dumps do you hear at 5:05 am on a weekday morning.

    I live in Garden Hills subdivision in Champaign, IL.
    The crime around here is way high.
    Before moving here I lived in fountain Valley traiker park aka Prison Valley.
    I've built relationships with the gangs and police.
    I get left alone. Why? I'm neutral. Try to not be a troublemaker. Crazy? Yes.
    It's been working for over 30 years. Somehow I thrive in these conditions.
    Alert? Yes. Situational awareness is tantamount to survival. Keep your powder dry and your eyes open. :)

    Actually, we have in the last couple of years 4 police have commit 4 different felonies. There was a drive by shooting a block from house 2 months ago. The local marshall was caught selling drugs last summer. Sheriff commited murder suicide - killed his ex then himself 2 blocks away last Oct. Many here are gunned up and paranoid.

    The other 2 - police screwing under aged girls and another who embezzled $100,000 from the DARE program.

    We a had a murder over $100. worth of pot that went to trial 5 or 6 years go.

    Local paper had an article about the very high rate of suicide here. Since moving here 10 years ago I think I'm up to 20 people that were acquaintances here that have committed suicide.

    This place is very unhealthy with alot of mental illness.
