“I met a farmer while passing through Iowa this summer that told me it was a conservative state. Was he just reminiscing? BEAUTIFUL state - the air smelled so fresh and clean”. MOST “Farmers” are nothing more than Federal “Subsidy” LEECHES! MOST of them have NOT a “Conservative” Bone in their body. As far as “the air smelled so fresh and clean” you can get the SAME thing in NE, MO, PARTS of IL, SD, NE AND parts of MN, it is the Mid-West “Smell(just don’t get too close to a feedlot)”.
My sister and her family live in IA, very liberal around IA City and university areas. Said sister and spouse are active campaigners for 0bama and his ilk, think the government is best able to make decisions about how to spend our money.
