If a red state wants to leave well, charge them a secession tax

of 1 trillion dollars per state (blue states can't leave) oh and they must provide compensation for reloaction to the USA for any person wanting to leave said former state. That solves 2 problems no more haters no more deficit. Just my 14 cents....

2. It's going to be a real bitch if the States that secede are land locked. I don't think we should

 

even allow them out, and nothing in!

3. Please pay your share of the national debt on the way out

and don't let the border trip you up. Enjoy the ocean.

5. Just make them agree to a 75% reduction in Representation when they rejoin.


It isn't like they will last 6 weeks on their own.

6. we could just

invade them after they paid up. Someone in another thread had the idea on invasion and then install dem governors to run our newly conquered nations. We are after all experienced in nation building. Once the people from our newly acquired territory have gone through the proper re-education, (which would include things like math, science, reading, writing and detoxed from fox news), they can apply for a green card and be on the path to US citizenry. Same with the newly acquired states after a period of time they would be allowed to apply for entry into the union like Puerto Rico did.

8. Nobody is going to secede.

If the teabaggers want to leave, they can go to Canada, Australia, or anywhere else that will have them. But nobody is going to secede. We had one war over that already. That was enough.
