I reluctant to espouse my fantasies on here, but when I saw this comic, I knew it belonged on the blog.
I hate the how polarized this country has become in the last 5 years. Honestly, the idea of the United States disolving along red and blue lines seems an increasingly more likely (and savory) outcome.
Would I be sentimental if states likeMississippi and South Dakota were no longer a part of my homeland? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
And if you think about it, the notrthern liberal blue states would stand to gain economically by the new arrangement I describe. After all, the blue states put a lot more money into the federal treasury than they take out. In fact, for every dollar my liberal state of New Jersey puts into the federal treasury, we get sixty cents back from Washington. Alabama and Tennessee for example put in a dollar and get back nearly double that. Let's face it, liberals are bankrolling the backward policies of the red states.
People in conservative red states hate us and resent our values. I can't say I feel any differenly about them.
So why not make it official and get a divorce already?
