A Far More Perfect Union

We've all heard about people in the Red states threatening to secede. Maybe it's time people in the Blue states considered kicking them out.

You'd last a week, if only because you wouldn't have anyone else to fight wars on your behalf anymore.

And other than Hollywood and George Soros, there wouldn't be any productive citizens left to tax either...

Paine, you ought to review the list of states that are net gainers of federal tax dollars, receiving more from the government than their citizens contribute. If red states were cut out of Union, many of them would revert to early 20th-century economies and lifestyles. Come to think of it, many of them would probably prefer that.

Wow, Paine, you really need to stop and think before you type. Look at my state alone... Boeing, Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks, Nordstroms and a whole bunch of other vibrant, successful companies. The economic competition between the blue and red states wouldn't even be close.

T. Paine said...

Yep, until you figure that you also have the highest percentage of those on entitlements in blue states. Plus, the red states typically provide much of the food and natural resources such as natural gas and oil that are needed. It would be rough, but after the first generation I think you would find the new red state nation in far better shape than the socialist blue states, sir.

T. Paine said...

It really is nothing more than a hypothetical exercise anyway, because no state will secede from the union.

Lol Jim + SW you two are certainly not the sharpest tools in the shed now are you?

Sure you can make an economic comparison as to how things are NOW.

But guess what would happen if the Red States did secede? That's right, all your precious little companies like Boing, Microsoft etc etc would leave your new founded socialist empire and come straight to the red states to set up shop.

You might want to look into little facts like: State Tax rates on corporations, Union %'s, workers comp rates, insurance rates, not to mention Federal Tax rates ... all those little things that you Libs don’t give a shit about. Guess what? Corporations do. Within 2-3 years most of all the large business in Socialist Blue Utopia will have fled to the Red States. Because why? You stupid fucks wouldn’t know how to run your new little utopia without taxing companies into the ground.

And then where would you be? A bunch of nanny state idiots with no one to pay for them.

Hell I say we do secede, let you idiots fall apart and then after 5 years then come invade your wimpy asses, because as free said, you'd have no one to fight for you.

So be smug in your cluelessness you idiots. Maybe one day I’ll be the one to come crashing down your door to take what I want while you lie there whimpering and crying like the little babies you are.

Maybe one day you will actually get a clue as to how things really work. But I seriously doubt it. Dumbasses.

Paine, trying to get some factual information into your mind is like trying soak up water with a marble slab, but here goes anyway.

I know this truth goes against all the propaganda you've gorged on over the years, but it's true: we all do better when we all do better.

S.W. Anderson said...

Paine, Jcpk20, study this and try to learn something.

Demeur said...

You may be beating a dead horse there SW. Some people get it others don't.

S.W. Anderson said...

Yes, the silence is deafening. :)

So if you claim is red states are such huge leeches, I'm sure then you wouldn't mind letting them opt out of things like Medicare or Social Security right? Oh, wrong.

Oh, and never mind all that "welfare" are farm subsidies, like- the vast majority.

I get it that blue stater city people might not understand where food comes from.
