    Nyc does not reflect our entire state

    I'm sick of our whole state being the bluest state in the entire union because of the hell hole that is nyc.

    I firmly believe that our great state should be split into 2 or maybe even even 3 different voting blocks.

    I love my state and especially my area the hudson valley but I feel my state and multiple other states should be split.

    Dems always say "the constitution is a living breathing document that shouldn't be taken so seriously"

    then why not take a look at our state boarders that have been the same for decades or centuries

    Putting aside the politics and 4 more years of an empty suit, whats with all the hate around here for NYC? You live next to one of the greatest cities on the planet and your wasting your youth by not going there and having a good time? Whats wrong with you dumb rednecks?

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    AI agree, but I haven't had much use for NYC since Giulliani shut down Show World.

    Hell no and it aint over now.......

    There's a lot if interesting history on this as it has been discussed as recently as 2009.

    Economically you'd be worse off. More money flows out of NYC then in.

    Now if you want to talk about a state that needs to be split, it should be California.

    CMM,

    Sorry the election didn't go the way you wanted, but that happens in a democracy. The result reflects both the electroral and popular vote.

    As far as splitting the state goes, I'm sure you'd get downstate support; it would mean a tax reduction for most city people.

    let's just hope the people we've elected can learn to work together for the good of all the people.

    From your lips to God's ears. But what made a slim majority of voters think Obama will finally reach across the aisle this next 4 years when he completely refused to do so the past 4? When he says he's "willing to work with the other side" what he clearly means is he fully expects Republicans to cave in and go it his way which they have a mandate in the House not to do. Right now, I don't see either side capable of compromise. Let's hope I'm wrong.

    BTW, CMM, NJ is in the same boat. The overwhelming majority in geography in this state is Republican, but the cities' populations put us well over the top on the Dem side.

    Re: Nyc does not reflect our entire state

    I live in NJ and would like to see the electoral votes delegated by congressional district instead of winner take all, not just here, but throughout the country. I believe it woud be more in line with the intentions of the Founding Fathers, and would get more rural and suburban areas some say in states where the political machine controls the urban districts.

    Pretty sad that the electoral college can vote against the way the popular vote goes.

    The United States is a Republic not a democracy. The result reflects the electoral college more than anything. I find it hard to believe any person with half a brain can support a person who has never passed a budget in his first four years, put us into more debt, and feels it necessary to apologize to the world for the things America does.

    He couldn't have done any worse than Barry. I wasn't even thinking about those things when I was that young. But when a group of people, the general public has no idea of, are electing our presidents, the actual election just seems like a smoke and mirrors show. It's as if they do it just to appease the masses.

    Granted the president is a figure head, but there are people pulling their strings pushing their agendas on us.

    Clearly the reelection of Barry was a good thing. We got things started off strong with a huge plunge in the stock market. Must be the other guys fault.
