Why not make a trade?
We give up national health care and Democrats give up national defense?
Good luck defending yourselves Blue States!
That, and give ‘em the two left coasts, and stay out of flyover country...
The left can have the blue states with their pure democracy and planned economies.
The conservative red states can have a free market based economy with a limited republican form of government.
In 20 years, we shall see who has the better healthcare system and growing economy.
