The Eastern part of the state gets way more funding per capita than the western part.

Per Capita is the key word there.

Money should be distributed based on where people live. It is not currently distributed that way.

The eastern part of the state gets more than its fair share under the current system.

You are the first person I've ever seen that thought the western part of the state gets preferential treatment. Raleigh does, but it is considered eastern NC, not western.

I am speaking of the triangle all the way to the Mtns. as not being Eastern.

Eastern is Coastal to me.

Then the plains/rolling hills.

Then the mountains.

I don't in the least consider the Triangle as eastern.

Well,I would have to see a breakdown of why money is spent in some areas before I agree. There are a lot of expenses in the Eastern part of the state that wouldn't really apply to the Western areas. For example, maintaining ports, maintaining beaches, running ferries, and fixing areas damaged by Hurricane. These are all things that are good for the state economy (tourism, transportation and industry), and they are pretty much exclusive to the eastern area.

Also, since you are including the triangle, that is where most government employees live and work, and it means that many more of the state's public universities are in the east.

My biggest critisism about the candidate I am voting for is that he seems to be slowly giving up. He is up against such a huge mountain of false media bullshit that he honestly wants to quit, but he feels that he cant quit because the people that support him (many in secret) need him to fight for all of us, even the majority of the people dont even realize what his opponent is prepared to do.

In 2016, when Ventura is running for president, i will return back to my Libertarian party and roots, but this year Gary Johnson does not even have a chance. I am supporting Barack Obama, and this is big time down here in Florida where we will probably decide the election.

I'm upset that I'm forced to vote for either a Republican from the 21st century or one from the 19th.

Romney is too conservative on social issues.

Mcroy will probably try and fire me.

romney/ryan are too anti-liberty on select social issues. i'm not as worried on that front as they have no chance on getting legislation passed on those fronts outside of ndaa. ndaa bothers the hell out of me. foreign policy bothers the hell out of me also. since obama/biden and romney/ryan are effectively the same on those fronts, i am voting based on economic issues. if ron paul were representing, i would have almost no qualms about the guy i vote for. however, given how our window of opportunity to fix the deficit and economy is shrinking, i am voting for the turd sandwich over the giant douche.
