Annnnd that's about the worst than can be said about the proposition. We should require open borders, though, so anyone who hated it on either side could migrate to the other.

Edit: open borders for, say, five years. After that, we'd get too many economic fugitives.

Wow. This post brings me memories of when I wasted my time in prophecies forums. OOH The nostalgia. Any other wild doom mongering you'd like to share?


I just wanted to warn y'all. You know, since it's a fact that the value of the dollar has been steadily decreasing. That inflation continues to skyrocket. That the Federal Reserve continues to further print out Federal Reserve notes, aka the "dollar", even though we don't have the money to pay back what are basically loans we've made out to the Fed. Did y'all know the Fed isn't an official government agency? Yep, it's pretty much private. Yet still tied to our goevernment.

Why do you even have such an avatar and yet refuse to question the world around you?

There's a difference between skepticism and denialism. Also, IIrc Vexcalibur isn't in the US.

Maybe we can trade you something for NOLA, assuming that it survives the coming century?
It's full of sinful left-wingers anyway...

Indeed.

Would anyone miss issippi?

Would anyone even ask "where has Oregan?"?

Or for that matter:

Will we ever know what Arkansaw?

Would Delaware a New jersey?

Or who exactly does Illinois?

These questions may never be answered!

The Avocadoes sound good,but I've never had that type of crab.
But I like all sea food so we may be open to a trade. :)

Mmm dungeness... light and sweet.
My family often has Dungeness crab for Christmas dinner.
Not to mention crab cakes, crab cocktail, crab rolls, California rolls, crab sandwiches on sourdough...
Trade it is. This might work after all.

Yup. State, county and local governments are usually subsidized one way or the other by federal tax dollars. Take that money away and your state/county/local taxes are going to go up even if you no longer pay federal tax. In fact, if you live in an area that tends to have less money come back from the federal government than what it pays in federal taxes, and assuming your new country maintains the same level of services, chances are you'll be paying more total tax than you were paying as part of the U.S.


A lot of the states who people are petitioning to leave the Union are net recipients of federal transfers.
