That is the biggest problem with some states in America they have too much pride
and it gets in the way with reality. Its not how much pride they have its how progressive
they are. Even there like in Canada not enough of them. Like whining children they are
consumed with gay issues and the little things.
If they were progressive they'd we working on strengthening the country ensuring people
had medicare and the the things that are of importance to people.
Pride is a subjective thing which really can't be defined anyway
