This comparison of production and income between the states as some valuable variable over secessionist prospects is disingenuous.
For one, it assumes there is some set and equal defined goal the states or any municipality or government for that matter are racing toward. That's
simply not true.
Two, it seems to completely disregard both how so much time spent in this configuration has warped who can do what and how well and it also disregards
the ability of those municipalities to adapt past the point where they adapted to get along as a nation.
Third, it assumed each state and each states secessionist movements are happy to simply leave the United States. Speaking for myself and I can only
assume at least a few others this is not true. I dont care about my state any more than I care about this country. I want to get off the proverbial
train as it were.
There are plenty more but I dont want to create a post so big nobody will read it.
Oh, one more big one. I see it assumed a lot that the secessionists somehow want to hurt others or change the way everyone else lives their lives.
Maybe there are some fascist and contradictory secessionist who do but the majority simply want to be left alone.
Ive yet to get an answer, any answer that isnt a simple insult, to my repeated query of "If I'm forgotten and left alone on my land until I die how
does it affect in any way the stability of the state?" Is my meager contribution so important that the state has to spent tens of thousands of dollars
to kick in my door, haul me off to prison and support me for 15 years? It's a net loss for the state to collect. I'm working poor. So what's the
The only answers I ever get are the oh, so compassionate statist responses of "die you dead beat" and "leave if you dont like it."
