A state that voted for the presidential canidate from the Democratic party. It would appear on a map as blue, while Republican-leaning states appear as red; a red state. This term, though new in its invention (circa 2000), does not have any exlusive relationship to a specific date or any single election: it is realitive.
Americans cannot understand abstract concepts unless they have corresponding colors. Thank you CNN for making us blue.

A state that has recently gone democratic; see bicoastal; opposite of red state.
In the blue states, the bobos like Howard Dean, but he'll never carry the red states.

1. A state filled with people under the mistaken perception that AL Gore would have been a good president. 2. To Loose. 3. The mood of a resident of a loosing state after a properly conducted nationwide election. 4. Home to a buncha, winey, cheese lovin' Francofiles who can't wait for the USA to become subserviant to any other nation. Like Lithuania. Fuckin pussies.
1. The internet is a most facinating invention so we in this blue state use it.
2. I got a blue state on my scratch-off lottery ticket.
3. After that election, bubba found himself in a truly blue state; so he went off and fucked a Hollywood starlet. (Blue state, ain't all bad...)
4.Gerrard took his time choosing where to live. He wanted to be certain his actions would be controlled by some foriegn power, so he moved to a blue state where there were fewer people with backbone to whoop his puss-ass.

Solidly Democratic-voting states in the 2004 election who subsidize the red states with unfair distributions of tax revenue.

For every tax dollar that Alabama pays, it receives $2.03 in federal aid.

For every tax dollar that California pays, it receives 81 cents in federal aid.
As for you, Midwestrn Soldier: how hypocritical that you bitch about the supposed "ignorance" of "blue-staters" when many of the definitions that you've posted are just as hate-filled and vicious as you claim the "liberals" are. Is this typical behavior for you guys in the "red states"? I'm asking since I don't want to make assumptions and stoop to your level.

Includes the entire West Coast and Hawaii; consists of the entire Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states; and most of the Upper Midwest, except for Iowa and the Dakotas. The states are usually full of the following:
--People who might actually have a different opinion that what Bush says.
--People who don't have to promote their religious beliefs to know they have them.
--People who use intelligent rebuttles to conflicting arguments other than "you fag!"
--People who have taste in music and art that does not soley deal with the subject of "loving neocons no matter what or else we'll kick your ass!"
--People who pay the taxes that subsidize the red states.
--People who are tolerant of other cultures outside of WASPdom.
--Believe in the equality of all men and women.

A euphemism for Democratic-voting states in the 2004 election, particularly in reference to the Northeast and West Coast.

Ironically, these states also have:

A) Most of the lowest crime rates in the nation.
B) The lowest divorce rates in the nation.
C) The highest quality of life in the nation.
D) The lowest ratio of federal aid to tax dollars paid in the nation.
The "blue states" may have their faults, but they outstrip the "red states" by most accounts.
