I am in favor of holding State Constitutional Conventions, splitting the former USA into economic regions, and each region taking with them their proportionate, (based on population), share of the former USA National Debt.
North Dakota to Texas could be one region, the States contiguous to the State Of New York might be another, etc.
BTW, if you drove from the Louisiana-Texas border to Los Angeles, when you got half way there you would still be in TEXAS!
ROFL. ain't that the truth.
I'd rather it be based on the vote and not population. I'll happily take the hit for the Bush spending, but the State of Texas never voted for Obama and I see no reason for the new Republic of Texas (or whatever you want to call our "zone") to incur his debt. Let those who voted for it eat it.
