The following statistical data reveals just where we are heading. Did apathy bring us Obama?

Interesting Statistics

Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School of Law,

St. Paul, Minnesota, points out facts of 2008 Presidential election:

Number of States won by:

Democrats: 19

Republicans: 29

Square miles of land won by:

Democrats: 580,000

Republicans: 2,427,000

Population of counties won by:

Democrats: 127 million

Republicans: 143 million

Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:

Democrats: 13.2

Republicans: 2.1

Professor Olson adds:

"In aggregate, the map of the territory Republican won by Republicans

was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.

Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in

government-owned tenements and living off various forms of

government welfare.

Professor Olson believes the United States is now somewhere

between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's%
