unyon: This will never happen, but it would be awesome if it did. Getting to see that moment when the light bulb goes on and they realize that they have lost the urban tax base that has been subsidizing their agrarian utopia.And then *gasp* they have to raise taxes. A lot. And then the outraged anti-taxers would have to split off the 52nd state, where there is no government, no taxation, and everyone is home schooled. Want a streetlight or a cop? Pay for it yourself, you goddamned commie.

DamnYankees: We should be combining states, not splitting them.
DamnYankees: The only - only - splitting of state which makes any sense is splitting CA in half somewhere around Fresno. Everything else is dumb.

FlashHarry: they should really do it, if only for the lulz.of course kansas has already started its great conservative experiment, so we should be seeing the results from that fairly soon.
Dusk-You-n-Me: Must be a weird feeling loving your country so much you want to secede from it.
