PITTSBURGH, Jan. 31 (UPI) -- When a U.S. state becomes more liberal politically, its consumption of beer and spirits rises, researchers say.

Confounding effect: conservatives remaining in the State begin drinking even more heavily.
I know I’ve been drinking a lot more since 0bama got elected.
It makes sense. It gives liberals an excuse and conservatives a reason.
It’s called post hoc ergo propter hoc. First they drink then they start voting stupid.
I’m guessing, but I’ll bet the suicide rate goes up too.
When drinking increases you try hang gliding.
When you try hang gliding you crash into things.
When you crash into things the grid goes down.
When the grid goes down crime goes up.
And when crime goes up your dad gets punched over a can of soup.
Dont have your dad punched over a can of soup. Get rid of liberalism in your state.
What was the alcoholic rates in the USSR and on most Indian reservations?

Yeah. If I had voted for Barack Hussein Obama; I’d probably need a drink right about now, too.
The likely cause is that states become more liberal as the population of low-income people increases, and they tend to be heavier drinkers.
“The likely cause is that states become more liberal as the population of low-income people increases, and they tend to be heavier drinkers.”
Austin, Texas...Iowa City, Iowa...bastions of liberalism...not low income people...the overpaid, leftist profs on these campii are not ‘low income’. These cities and their counterparts in other states are not low income. I at first thought that your premise might have merit, but after thinking of these examples, no.
And I have known some of these profs...when I lived in Lincoln, Nebraska. Heavy drinkers. One I knew drank himself to death in his ‘prime’. And what was more important for him and for his cohorts on other campii? Publication...
We need to get rid of all these elistists...
If they were talking cities only, I’d agree with you, and certainly the kind of liberal “useful idiots” you mention are the leading edge of the liberal infection. However, once they metastasize, they attract the hordes of “gibsmedats” that do all the heavy drinking, and do it in the kind of numbers that actually skew the whole state. Since it’s states the article talks about, I stand by my premise that it’s the horde of low-income layabouts that produce the numbers, not the ivory-tower airheads.
I could argue the point, but not tonight...you have a point too. Have a blessed evening. And enjoy whatever you might be bibing...to counter what ‘they’ are, of course :)
Also, if you have a lot of hair, don't get too over confident, and go to Vegas either.
