Our Two Party System

"Every two years the American politics industry fills the airwaves with the most virulent, scurrilous, wall-to-wall character assassination of nearly every political practicioner in the country—and then declares itself puzzled that America has lost trust in its politicians."
— Charles Krauthammer

This 50 States project does not contain information about our politics. It is an assignment in Web Page Design II that teaches students how to create a web site that will pull information from a database to populate the site. The site you are viewing has only five pages, and you will be looking at two of them. The other three lurk behind the scenes taking care of various PHP/MySQL functions and setting the style and layout of the pages you do see.

A breakdown of "red" and "blue" states, (pre-2010 elections) is provided for navigation. There is also a narrative about each state with information about state birds, flowers, seals, maps, flags, quarters, and places to visit if you ever have the chance to go.

Don't talk politics when you get there.
