Those wealthy enough to live along the coast don't vote Democrat because the government is supporting them.
I am not sure what this has to do with the original thread, but I live in Santa Barbara and this statement could not be more erroneous as it relates to SB. SB is a Democrat stronghold and the town is filled with low income people who receive their share of government handouts. However, to practice full disclosure, my wife works in Social Services and in addition to those low income people that get the freebies (and by the way are driving nicer cars than myself), she also works with people in multi-million dollar mansions that are also getting the same freebies.
Now back to the topic...........
