I misread the first word as California and thought it was going to be about our more productive regions wanting out leaving socialist states like NY and CA to fend for themselves instead of leaching off others..
In my lifetime, there has not been a year in which California has not supplied much more to the Federal treasury than has been allocated here. So could you please explain what you mean by California "leaching off others"?
“...socialist states like NY and CA to fend for themselves instead of leaching off others..”
Believe it or not, NY State sends more money out to the federal government than it receives back in funding.
Amazing but true.
I’ve often though about just that. Is there nothing in the
constitution about kicking out bad states? We tried it the
other way once and it didn’t work out for those who wanted
to leave, maybe we should go the expulsion route.
