They will if the Feds decide to take back, or have the states pay for any federally subsidized equipment or structures they have before they leave.

I'm talking about the individuals, not the states as a whole, not the legislatures ... the individuals.

unfortunately, modern states seceding from the union would be much like the huddle seceding from the internet.

The secession petitions have nothing to do with wanting the government out of people's lives, and everything to do with sour grapes over losing.

I think you take a lot for granted, and thinking you know what really is going on in people's minds is quite arrogant.

I am too. If those states have to reimburse the Feds for everything the feds subsidized, and/or replace everything the Feds take back, you think taxes are gonna drop for them?

It's called personal responsibility.

If the people didn't think that the government was there to bail them out, do you think that folks would be a little more prepared?

So taxes only go to the government bailing people out?

to be fair, this shiat is quite cyclical and consistently stupid... regardless of who wins the elections.
