Bad religion -- defined as religion that fosters fear -- doesn't help either.


"Nope, Don't Need No Nanny State Here!"

The 10 states with the lowest mortality rates:

1. Hawaii
2. California
3. Connecticut
4. Minnesota
5. New York
6. Massachusetts
7. Colorado
8. New Hampshire
9. New Jersey
10. Washington
The 12 states with the highest mortality rates:
1. Mississippi
2. Alabama
3. West Virginia
4. Oklahoma
5. Kentucky
6. Louisiana
7. Arkansas
8. Tennessee
9. South Carolina
10. Georgia
11. Indiana
12. Missouri
Of the 25 states above the national average, 19 are blue and just six are red. Of the 25 states below the national average, 17 are red and just eight are blue.
Environmental policies, access to health insurance, workplace safety regulations ... these things matter. They are literally a matter of life and death. And it's clear that conservatism is hazardous to your health.
