I couldn't help but remember that it is already the tax dollars confiscated from the hard-working men and women of the Blue States and Socialistically redistributed to the Loser Red States that props up their backwards economies, illiterate WalMart Confederate populations and their hateful Fundy Cults. That without Welfare from the Hated Yankee States, the States Formerly Known as Slaveholding would collapse into the Third World dictatorships and pestholes that they always wanted to be.
If ever a swath of states absolutely BEGGED to be written off as a bad debt, it's the Confederate South. The roots of so much that is cancerously wrong with this country come straight out of the poisonous legacy of Dixie, and if I thought that pulling the plug on the mutant children of Jefferson Davis in the name of State's Rights, Secession or just finally-kicking-these-fuckers-to-the-curb common sense would solve our problems, I'd drop my alias and petition for it coast-to-coast tomorrow.
