Maybe it's because I live in Oklahoma, but around here, it's just not true. (The statement about it being a mix for most people.)
This is a sad joke, but it's very appropriate if you've ever been here.
How Oklahoma votes:
(R) behind name: All that is Good, anointed of God
(D) behind name: Everything wrong with the country, agents of Satan
Ok maybe that's a bit of overkill, but the it's been going that way for years and continues to grow worse... Hell it can cost your job if you speak up to counter some of the pure BS that everyone always spreads back and forth. Great, eh?--
