Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
White persons only :) ... but property too was counted and recognized as "free" or just as "slave".

1800 United States Census

Why States Still Matter
Democrats got millions more votes - so how did Republicans win the Senate?

What we have seen in 2016 and the 2018 midterm election, the Republicans did a better job in turning blue states and have set up a red block to make a change more difficult. Success breeds success ... voters align to winners. Hopefully the existential threats on planet Earth will change a few minds ... however one has to overcome utter ignorance with the public and the press. Both Washington DC and the press are dominated by big money from capitalists so all social programs will remain under threat especially in an economic downturn. A recession is due in 2020 and the tariffs warfare [China and EU] will have an impact on the US corn belt and agriculture. Soon US products will flow into the UK once Brexit takes a hold and EU goods will be priced too high with all those rules on food safety from Brussels. The mishap on the TIPP will partly succeed in the new trade agreement between PM May and President Trump.

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.
