I prefer the county by county maps myself. Wisconsin outside of Madison and Milwaukee is, in general, pretty conservative.
As a former Wisconsinite, I second that notion. I would move back to Madison in a heartbeat if I could.
If our govt continues to fail to address the basic structural problems in our financial system of too much debt, in my view we will not have a sustainable economic recovery. So while the stock market can stay irrational in the shorter term, in the long run I believe it will go back to reflecting the fundamentals of our boom and bust economy. And that's why I continue to feel that for long term investors a better portfolio allocation is in cash and gold. I just saw that a junior gold mining company that I like a lot, San Gold reported a new high grade gold discovery near its Hinge project. This article also says that the company is starting to draw comparisons to Goldcorp based on the numerous excellent discoveries the company has recently made. San Gold's stock has done very well this year, and while I would not necessarily be a buyer right now given the recent large run up, I would probably add on a 10-20% pullback. Over the next few years I think the gold price is headed much higher, and San Gold could be a big beneficiary of this.
