Some Texas freeper wants to cut off natural resources to the east and west coasts

Wants to "Go Galt" instead of secession. Oh dear. I think the election results gave someone a full-on breakdown.

And the west and east coast can cut off the *massive* transfers of their tax dollars that are used to prop up the state budgets of all those broke red states and use them to... oh... buy resources from anywhere else. See who implodes. :-D

CA is the largest agricultural state, we can produce our own oil and we have an 800 mile Pacific coast line. We have deserts, mountains and ocean. We have one of the most diverse economies and populations in the world. We're the 10th largest economy in the world.

I think we'll survive without Texas.

42. The "Galt" Strategy can work to our favor.

We trade Tennessee and West Virginia and 200 billion in cash for Montana, South Dakota and North Dakota. They can have all the red states, we keep Virginia, North Carolina and Florida, putting up defenses around Florida to keep their people out when they start to starve. This thing can be resolved without bloodshed as long as the "Galtis" agree to not crawl across our borders and food and civilization when they begin to starve. We can let them trade with China and Russia, Romney would love that and jump to be their President.

40 million barrels per year is slightly over 2 days worth nationwide.

They're going to go to the bases, explain that they are taking over, and all the people stationed there will say, 'Oh. OK. Well, we'll just get out of your way then."

35. Damn, those Freepers are stupid.

The below has about as much of a chance of success as a snowball has of lasting 1 second in Hell. The Freeper idiots actually think that Russia and China will vaporize blue states and let red states merrily carry out their "Galt" strategy. How fucking foolish, Russia and China would take the whole ball of wax and impale red staters on the tips of their bayonets.

"There is also another scenario, where other Nations like China or Russia, seeing whatís happening, will vaporize the coastal cities to end the war and neutralize the threat the Occupied US Government poses to their Countries. But that would come later. This is possible, but understand the goal and how to attain it."

To the credit of some people over there in Freeperville, they had the guts to call the plan foolish and an act of treason. The thing that get me is that red state Freepers that are calling for the "Galt" strategy think that we, being far more technologically sophisticated won't vaporize their asses. They think we can't get them one at a time and can't attack because we would kill democrats. They have no fucking idea of what we have in our labs. We can selectively wipe out cities of the red assholes and leave the blue citizens standing. They think they can starve us out or deny us energy. Haven't they heard of green energy and vertical farming? Their attempt to deny us energy will cause us to accelerate green energy implementation and vertical farming. We would be able to feed our side with minimal space taken up while we parch their land and bring out blue citizens from there to freedom and good living on our side.

I doubt that North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana or Canada would join those fools for one minute, in particular if they know what will happen to them if they do, and our side should make the consequences perfectly clear if nimrods try a "Galt" strategy, or any other act of treason for that matter.

FReepers have the intellectual maturity of infants. Infants are lovable though. FReepers are just mean and stupid.

That this person would seriously think,

1) This cockamamy 'plan' would work.

2) That reasonable countries would support a civil war in the US by any party, let alone the political and religious extremists on FR.

3) That Canada, England and Australia would send troops to support the 'Allied States of America'


Unbelievable that someone that stupid has control over a keyboard.

39. Where do I sign up?

Speaking as a meteorology nerd - a great deal of their Allied States make up Tornado Alley. Let's give them one Spring full of the typical tornado outbreaks. What will they do in the mass devastation that can occur as a result of these outbreaks when they have no access to FEMA and federal disaster relief. What - will they trade each other some farm eggs to get their homes rebuilt? What about the floods that occur there every few years? Gonna take care of all of that without disaster relief? Yeah, good luck with that.

P.S. - I am in Pennsylvania and I live within 15 minutes of at least 6 farms. They do realize that farming occurs in other states, correct? Besides, it's us liberal states who are most likely to use renewable energy resources. They can hump their oil pumps all they want.

44. It doubtful that the "Galt" loving Freepers travel outside of their small towns.

They have no idea that farming and energy production takes place in blue states. Freepers think that they can cut off stuff to us and we will shrivel up. We can simply stop sending our tax money to red states and use that money to implement more green energy production in our blue states. The "Galt" strategy may be a big win for our side. We get rid of ignorant moochers that are holding the country back, becoming free to develop the society that we know is best for us, the planet and economic sustainability.

Why this song kept repeating over & over in my brain, I'll never know



Remember when you ran away and I got on my knees and begged you not to
leave because I'd go berserk?? Well...
You left me anyhow and then the days got worse and worse and now you see
I've gone completely out of my mind.. And..
They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa
To the funny farm. Where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be
happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're
coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!!!

You thought it was a joke and so you laughed, you laughed when I had said
that loosing you would make me flip my lid.. RIGHT???
I know you laughed, I heard you laugh, you laughed you laughed and
laughed and then you left, but now you know I'm utterly mad... And..


They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa,
They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa.
To the happy home. With trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket
weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they're
coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!
