The red states in the Southeast and parts of the West (I guess that is just about all of them) lead the country in poverty levels and divorce, infant mortality, obesity and teen pregnancy rates. The leadership in these states should be doing something about these very real problems. Whatever your political affiliation, this should hit you in the gut. More needs to be done to change the path. What we do not need is more legislative time and effort being spent trying to ban gay marriage and flag burning as the real problems get worse. Even if those are real problems for you, do they deserve priority over legislation to fix Alabama’s horribly unfair tax system for those families at or below poverty level or to do something about Louisiana’s infant mortality rate? If we can ever work together, now is the time.
