Secession?? Sure, Why Not

12 Nov

Some of the wingier nuts in the country want to leave the Union. Red state people mostly. They don’t like the status quo.

Honestly, I don’t either. I wish those red state people would learn to carry their own weight. Don’t you?

Residents In More Than A Dozen States Petition White House To Secede From United

Maybe they should think it over a little. Get a better grasp on the numbers.

Funny how I seem to have to keep putting this information up.

David Atkins at Digby’s has a couple thoughts for them.

Red states, by and large, are moochers. They can’t sustain themselves. If California were to secede, the state would have a balanced budget (or nearly balanced.) If Alabama were to secede, it wouldn’t be able to pay for its stop signs.

    And would we sign trade agreements with them?

    Somehow I think they’d need us more than we would need them.
    But they would have all that Gulf coast shoreline. All that oil-soaked Gulf coast shoreline. hmmmmm
    And I wonder if they’d separate into little, self-contained countries. Or form another confederacy.
    Idaho could be to them, what Alaska is to us.
    Interesting thoughts.
