Unless it detracts from cold beer and NASCAR, South Carolina voters could care less about the global economy.

South Carolina has the highest beer excise tax in the continental United States.

South Carolina’s excise tax is $1.73 per case – plus the federal excise tax of $1.31 per case.

South Carolina recently started charging sales tax on beer. Sales taxes range from 5% to 7% across the state.

Hospitality taxes, averaging 2%, are charged in over 85% of the municipalities across the state.

South Carolina has a drinking problem:

The beer industry helps support a total of $1.6 billion in economic output annually in South Carolina

A total of 20,500 jobs in SC can be directly traced back to the activities of the beer industry in South Carolina

The full range of activities associated with the beer industry work to support a total of $153.4 million in tax revenue annually for South Carolina

The beer industry supports almost 40,000 jobs for citizens of South Carolina – the wholesale segment employs over 20,000 of these positions.

The sales, hospitality and other taxes add over $61 million to the state general fund each year.

...And NASCAR is switching to green fuel. Damn commie France family.

The bedrock of the US is the original thirteen colonies. Texas was a republic and then state before you boys had a building in place.
We're going to buy California soon and turn it into a Texas retreat. Practice your butler moves. You have fruits and nuts alright, not the ones that grow on trees.
We invented fish tacos in Texas, boy.

Cool, thanks, we need a buyout with a cavaet to be put in place before the paper work is signed, Texas must change their moto 'Texas, where cowboys are cowboys and the cows get nervous after sundown", that will have to change before the sale.

totally true, they are all in our legislature to include the governor.

Texas Did? nastiest tasting thing, no wonder California decided to change it by killing the fish and roasting it. Taste so much better.
