11. Joe's ALMOST right
I can see maybe 4 states opting out and it's residents either too poisoned politically or too stupid to care. Off the top of my head I'll say Texas 9of course), Alabama, Mississippi, and maybe like Wyoming. It really is a brilliant strategy because any RW governor that tries it will be putting his or her head in a noose and teetering on a tipping chair.
