To give a REAL definition and not bash the right for a change of pace, this is the term given to states during elections that have more Republican votes than Democratic votes.

The states that voted in George W Bush. Sine those states are full of fucking morons, it has become a saying.

When somebody does something incredible stupid they are refered to as a red state.

(Isn't it funny how the two states that were effected by 9/11, NY and Washington, voted in Kerry?)
You drank a can of paint? What's wrong with you, you fucking red state!!?
A state that has proven to be solidly Republican in voting for the President of the United States.
Typically conservative and rural in nature, not necessarily a new Republican stronghold.

A blue state where enough of the population has been disenfranchised by the New Jim Crow as to hand power to a tyrannical oligarchy known as the Republican Party.
Don't let your state become a red state. Say no to Republicans at all levels of government.

States in which large segments of its citizens walk around with their heads up their asses, pulling them out only long enough to burn a cross or make a bigoted statement. Usually vote Republican, even though their populations are comprised largely of individuals living near or below the poverty line and thus unlikely to be favored by Republican tax and fiscal policies.
It would be wonderful if we could get from New York to California without having to cross through any red states.

States full of people who voted for G.W. Bush (a.k.a. the first herald of the apocalypse). The majority of people in these states have forgotten that this country was founded on the separation of CHURCH AND STATE and put a coked up jesus freak in office because "he prays" and he talks about jesus alot.
Fuckin red states, you know hes going to bring on the apocolyspe!
