Blue Model, Epic Fail

"Some arguments are based on theory, as when politicians say they think their ideas will work well in practice, whereas their opponents' will work out poorly. Then there are arguments based on proven and practical facts. The fact today is that what Walter Russell Mead calls the "blue social model" -- high taxes, much regulation, strong unions and a fairly high level of government services -- is in deep trouble wherever tested. The red model -- low taxes, low spending, more business-friendly policies -- is still thriving."

The author goes on to demonstrate this principle, and the distinctions are obvious. The Blue states are failing, the red states do better.

Go red young man/woman.
