Put your money where your mouth is, Democrats.

So I have been trying to figure out how to make the most of my anger at finding out that Republicans can stomach sexism and racism and it actually emboldens them to come out stronger and in more numbers. So I decided to go back to the electoral map just one more time.

Democratic Voting States:

  • Hawaii (HI)
  • Washington (WA)
  • Oregon (OR)
  • Nevada (NV)
  • California (CA)
  • Colorado (CO)
  • New Mexico (NM)
  • Minnesota (MN)
  • Illinois (IL)
  • Maine (ME)
  • Vermont (VT)
  • New York (NY)
  • Virginia (VA)
  • Massachusetts (MA)
  • Rhode Island (RI)
  • Connecticut (CT)
  • New Jersey (NJ)
  • Delaware (DE)
  • Maryland (MD)
  • District of Columbia (DC)
  • New Hampshire (NH)


These are the states that Democrats should put their money into through tourism and supporting any products that come out of these places. They are the ones that share Democratic values by the majority. Republican states shouldn’t be ones that you visit or buy in your local stores. Bottom line though, if you live in one of these blue states buy local, if you want to take a trip somewhere and know you will be spending dollars in that place, “Shop Blue” if you are a Democrat.

Refuse to support and travel to Republican majority states:

  • Alaska (AK)
  • Arizona (AZ)
  • Utah (UT)
  • Idaho (ID)
  • Montana (MT)
  • Wyoming (WY)
  • North Dakota (ND)
  • South Dakota (CD)
  • Nebraska (NE)
  • Kansas (KS)
  • Oklahoma (OK)
  • Texas (TX)
  • Iowa (IA)
  • Missouri (MO)
  • Arkansas (AR)
  • Louisiana (LA)
  • Mississippi (MS)
  • Alabama (AL)
  • Tennessee (TN)
  • Kentucky (KY)
  • Indiana (IN)
  • Wisconsin (WI)
  • Michigan (MI)
  • Ohio (OH)
  • Pennsylvania (PA)
  • West Virginia (WV)
  • North Carolina (NC)
  • South Carolina (SC)
  • Georgia (GA)
  • Florida (FL)


If you live in one of the red states and have Democratic values don’t shop local, buy and visit the states that you feel have the same ideals that you have, that women and minorities deserve to be truly equal and we want our future world to be a better place.

Note: I know that these are areas that are hurting already and it saddens me that it has to hurt more but these are the areas that the majority doesn’t see the connection between their mentality and their circumstances. I don’t think that we were trying not to see people for the way that they are, I think we were hoping that people were better than they were. It is now very evident that they aren’t and it’s time we show them why they need us too.
