Subject: you do not matter

When will you guys in NYC realize that you do not matter anymore. You can contribute to percentage to a losing side in national elections but the candidates and elections are chosen by the south, southwest and Midwest.

Your arguments seem so strong to people in NYC but just don’t carry weight where it matters.

Your electoral votes keep declining every decade.

Keep talking. It is fun to listen to your thoughts but you just don’t matter anymore.
