Best map so far

Per county, weighted for population, purple

Now I want to see a 3-D distortion of this map for 2 things:
1) Taxes paid vs federal spending.
2) % over GDP on a per-capita basis.

This would show who is getting the pork and who is making the pork.

This page was the source of those maps. There are 2 new ones at the bottom that scale non-linearly (a 70% vote is considered enough to be pure red or blue).

This conversation is continued over at Adam’s Emergent Chaos where he brings up the US 16th amendment and a reasonable point. Good God man, can’t you let me whine in peace? ;p

P.S. Joke, joke. I read rational stuff too.
