I've traveled a lot, so I've had good exposure to the different attitudes in different areas of the country.

Ultimately it didn't work out for me (or many others). Having this much government control based on the East coast, and knowing how much the cultures are different, it does make me think we need better representation back there. It also makes me wonder about how wise it is to have a country this large with a central government. Maybe if there weren't so much vested in power and control, we could appreciate our differences more?
 
I think a lot of the culture of the East Coast (as well as Vermont and Pennsylvania) is - to some extent -  based in the cultures of the original 13 colonies (consciously or not).  You've probably noticed that the Northeast also has a distinctly different culture than the Southeast - having moved from the former to the latter, I became acutely aware of that pretty quickly.  It is a huge country, but it's hard to say how and why different regions vary - or if that's really a problem.  I imagine there were proposals to set up "satellite" national capitols in the Midwest/Great Lakes area or on the West Coast over the years.

Okay, redirecting this over here because threadjack and all...

I'm genuinely curious about this so I dug a little. in 2010, 39% of the population lived in counties that bordered the coast. That is only about 10% of the US landmass. That also includes west and gulf coasts, so I don't think 36% could live just on the Atlantic. I also got 7 from NY - 
Martin Van Buren (8), Millard Fillmore (13), Chester A. Arthur* (21), Grover Cleveland* (22, 24), Theodore Roosevelt (26), Franklin D. Roosevelt (32), Donald Trump (45)


Interesting that you have to get pretty recent before you get any west coast representation - I would expect that early on, but you have to go all the way to Hoover before you get to a Western state. And then you jump to CA, and the intermediate west (NV, AZ, UT, WY, CO, OK, NE...) are skipped. In all, almost half (22/45) come from NY, OH, VA, and MA. Some of that is due to history and geographic expansion, but some of that is still post westward expansion. Small sample size, population density, politics etc. Still feels like time for the west to give it a go.

Isn't it about time we had a coastal (non-NY) president/candidate?  There are a lot of people (39%+) that live in counties that border the salt water (yes, including NY), and you have to go back to Reagan to find a pres from there.... well Bush, sort of, again NE influence (and I guess Texas technically, but I think of that more as 'heartland').... I need to work on these definitions.

Only six presidents were born in NY State.  Anyhow, Republicans/Conservatives have repeatedly pushed the notion that "coastal" politicians are "the elite", so there's that resistance as well.  Actually, something like 36% of the US population live in states on the Atlantic Coast (from Maine to Florida).

I have never seen an Academy Award show and I don't think tomorrow night is the time to start watching
I'm sure it will be a contest to see who can do the biggest anti-Trump rant,
my wife used to go to an Academy Award party with her lady friends until a few years ago because at that time of night she's done for the day (MS)
but she heard the other day that they aren't going to have it this year because they think it will be just a night of Trump bashing, which is fine with them but that's not why they watch

Federal Judge Reinforces Decision That FEC, Debate Commission Acted “Contrary to Law”

"After H. Ross Perot shocked both Democrats and Republicans by receiving 19% of the vote in the 1992 election – after his strong debate performance – it was clear that neither party wanted to ever see another independent challenger on the stage again. The CPD changed their rules, and, since then, just two debaters have performed in the final three presidential debates."

Before 2020 comes 2018. All House seats and 33 Senate seats are up for bid, er, I mean election.
Not to soon to mobilize but first comes a new chair for the Dems and all those applications.
But I am ready to take a stand today and steal a page from the Tea Party/Trump Movement book in their anti-RINO position and say kick the F'ing DINOs out or at least do not compromise with them.
