Do Liberals Live Longer/Healthier Lives?
Maybe. The recent report by public health doctors showed the relative health of Americans across the country by state (Link). Apparently, after 15 years of improvements, the state of our health has now stagnated. The good news is that report by state shows that being liberal might be good for your health (or at least blue "socialist" states have better health care systems). Of the top 10 states, 8 are Blue. Of the bottom 10 states, all of them are staunchly Republican (except Florida - we are still not totally conceding Florida).
