Agreed.I'm tired of subsidizing a bunch of yahoos. Let 'em grow cotton and fight among themselves. They can elect Huckabee or Palin as their leader.
Talk of division of the nation is usually politically incorrect. But it seems healthy to me. As I said, whatever use the red states are to the blue ones - trade, tourism, whatever - they will continue to be useful in the same way as a separate nation. As such, each half could pursue its distinct political vision just as you have suggested. Isn't that a big win for both?
