He/She read your post just fine. You were very clear in that and previous ones.

For the record, we have a rather conservative Republican Governor. We have one Republican Senator and one Democrat.

We have a State that is split about 50/50 on a lot of issues.

Keith Ellison the Muslim Congressman won in a primary with about 25% of the vote - there are no run-offs in MN. In the 5th district if you have a D behind your name you win.

They’ve told the cabbies at the airport that they work for the Met Airport Commission, do your job or leave.

Most areas of MN are very conservative. Have you ever seen the 2000 election red/blue map?

You are insulting all of us here in MN with your posts.

And here I thought most Freepers were more intelligent than to believe all of the liberal main stream media spin.

Thank you terilyn. You saw the point I was making. We have plenty of good folks up here, as you well know. Even within St. Paul proper, where I live, there are a decent number of conservatives.

I also would like to note that this is rather ironic coming from a person from Maryland, a more liberal state than Minnesota. That’s not meant to be a knock on the whole state of Maryland - I’m sure there are plenty of good folks there too. But that’s the whole point - disparaging an entire state is completely uncalled for, especially right after a tragedy has struck in said state.

I also think it’s worth noting that politics don’t determine everything. Minnesota may be a “blue” state, but I find that most of it’s people (even the DFLers) are nice, genuine people. Minnesota liberals are generally different from the ones that live out on the coasts. That’s why I continue to be proud to call Minnesota home, high taxes and liberalism aside. Similarly, I’ve been to many “red” states, especially in the South, where I found the people to be very rude and off-putting. If you view your whole life through the lens of partisan politics, then you can’t possibly appreciate life.

Terilyn, I hope that all of your loved ones are safe. I’ve confirmed that all of mine are.

Silvie - perhaps you should come here sometime. You’ll find out how wrong your perceptions of our fine state are.
