Conservatives need to stop asking for hand-outs

When you look at the map of donor-states (states that send more money to the Federal Government than they receive back in benefits) and subsidized states, there seems to be a dysfunction since many of the proportionally largest eaters of other men's bread are traditionally conservative. 

Utah, Arizona, Arkansas, and many of vocally conservative states in the South with the exception of Florida seem to embrace Federal Money.  The problem with taking more from the Feds than you give them is that you further the Utopian Socialist dream of people who would buy your vote and your freedom. 

Reaction?
