Apparently, the reason certain American states may play such a decisive role in the nation’s political elections may be their powerful position according to the rules of feng shui:

Cho Jun Hyung, a retired television station manager turned feng shui master, says [incoming UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon’s] appearance fulfilled a 2,500-year-old Chinese prophecy, first uttered by Confucius himself, that a “world dominator” would emerge from the northeast, meaning neighboring Korea. Cho says Sangdong has exceptionally good feng shui because it sits at the navel of the Korean Peninsula, and a nearby row of three mountains channel in natural forces.

“This is very rare geography,” he said. “In America, Massachusetts and Ohio have similar alignments, which is why they produce so many presidents.”
