Absolutely agree I think many don't think about what happens when you secede. What happens to the benefits that are keeping 60% of the population
afloat? What happens when federal aid is cut to not only law enforcement but also every other branch of state government? What type of product will
they now 'export' for profit? How will they sustain their growth? I could keep going but clearly the children heading this movement haven't thought
about a whole lot.
I agree that there would be many issues that would arise that many people have not really taken the time to think about. However, I find irony in what
your saying, especially the above quote because you have really answered your own question that you began with in the begining of this thread.
People in the center and on the right have been arguing for sometime that these federal handouts that you speak of are NOT the business of the federal
government. We've come to suckle upon the federal teet for too long. And for this reason the states have lost their sovereignty almost completely.
There was a point in time where law enforcement was paid for by the state a local communities that they supervised. There was a point where states had
there own welfare systems and addressed the concerns that they had locally. There was a time when schools were not directed to teach the criteria by a
politician in DC. There was a time when the schools were funded by their communities as well...
So, If a seccession were to happen, then the states would go back to the original systems of government. The way the constitution originally dictated
should happen in the first place.
The constitution and the Bill Of Rights were very descriptive in how the government should operate. And when we violate the constitution, we have the
problems we have today. It's very simple. And people who are educated and know that flagrant violations of the constitution by US have rightfully
called for seccession. Not necessarily for actual secession, but for attention from the federal government. A wake up a call of you will, telling the
feds, "We know what your doing and it isn't going to work". This is no different than when the states redeclared their sovereignty last year. This
is an issue that crosses both "sides of the fence" and the people aren't going to take it anymore. And there justified in doing so. So states the
BTW, to the guy who said business would pull out of a state that declared secession. You couldn't be more wrong. Ever half way intellegent business
owner knows that setting up shop in a state that's going through some turmoil is an investment that can't lose. There would be a great economic
upturn in the states that would do secceed.
Also, I would just like too add. You speak as though the states are totally dependant on federal government. And you sir are very mistaken. The vast
majority of local and state government is state funded. Mind you, by the little taxes they impose on their people.
