15. The Supreme Court on Secession

In Texas v. White, decided in 1868, the Supreme Court ruled that no state can unilaterally secede from the Union. However, it also included the proviso that, if the other States agree to the secession, it can be done legally. I think that we in the Blue States of America would be happy to see these 12 states try to go it alone. They have been an anchor tied around the necks of the other parts of the country, and, given that, in my Blue State, we pay more in taxes to the government than we get back in services, while the Red States almost to a one receive more in services from the federal government than they pay in taxes. I personally am damn sick and tired of listening to these ignorant buffoons whining about big government and government spending when virtually all of them only survive on money we in the Blue States provide. Let them take care of themselves.

And, I propose that a strict border be maintained, with a limited number of temporary work visas made available to those who want to get away from their Red third world country for a while. After all, we are always going to need gardeners, busboys, and housekeepers
