    Shocking that all the freeloaders vote GOP.


    The Tax Foundation mapped the non-payers of federal income tax in 2008 by state, and found that the leading states for zero or negative income tax liabilities also tended to be Republican strongholds. In Mississippi, for example, a full 45 percent of households paid zero or negative federal income tax. In Texas, it's 39 percent.

    So the moral of the story is: If you want your federal income taxes to be zero, be broke in Biloxi, elderly in Alabama, or a hedge fund manager in Miami.

      that doesn't seem to make sense. If the national average is 47%, why are there fewer, comparatively, in Mississippi and Texas? They would seem to be more reliant on gov't services, not less than average.
      Or is it that they don't pay income taxes because of poverty, but also don't accept food stamps etc. as much as the northern states? I don't get it.

        Before we completely forget His Racistness' limp dik support for the First Amendment (at least in the face of murderous Islamist mobs) let's ask him the question: why is it okay to trash Mormons but not Muslims?

          Let's not deconstruct those figures too much. After all, lots of, uh, minorities in Texas and Mississippi.

          Old Pio Annecdote Alert: While on an assignment to the Mississippi state capital in Jackson, I had occasion to use the men's room. The governor at the time was Cliff Finch. And on the wall of my stall it said: "If you voted for Cliff Finch you can't sh*t here, your a*shole is on the 4th floor." Still funny.

            The chart and the 47% can't be apples to apples. Otherwise half the states (roughly) would be over 47%.

            The chart says "filers." Maybe that's the difference.

              They certainly aren't. Not a single one of those numbers is 47% or higher. The highest (Mississippi) is 45%. Like I said though, it's a 2012 number that only 52% of the tax-eligible populace pays taxes, while you are giving us 2008 data, which is before any of these Obama policies even started to take place.

                  The 47% the Repubs are so fond of is a 2009 # when a bunch of extra tax breaks from the stimulus took effect for one, two years tops on top of the tanked economy. The numbers both before and after are likely much lower.

                      According to both Slate and NPR, it's still between 46 and 48 percent, however you slice it. Considering "Federal Income Tax" only, of course.

I'm not going to deny that there are staunch anti-Obama people out there; I know a few. This is why I have been professing to have a positive reason to vote for someone. I had a positive reason in 2004 to vote for GWB, and I'm not going to deny it. Sure I went straight down the conservative row for 2008, but sadly I was under the impression that I had to go anti-Obama. I have regretted that vote ever since, because it wasn't who I really wanted, but rather the lessor of two evils. I know I've made it fairly clear that not only would I not wish to vote for Obama, but I wouldn't wish to vote for Romney, either. I am going to make a positive choice in Gary Johnson, as his candidacy is about restoring hard work, and the associated freedoms that result from it. I also intend to put my money where my mouth is, and I'm sure that's something you wouldn't expect of me.
                            This is one of my favorite posts ever in a political thread on USCHO. (Not because of the truth value of it, or because of any detail in it. But simply because I think people should always vote for who they like most, not who they dislike least.)
