yea when this cesspool implodes they will come crawling to the Fed for funding. Tie the funding to a Temporary takeover of state operations starting with the election commission , DMV, and social services. Have people trained and ready to go. Have military ready to defend the whole thing and gut the sob’s.
If they refuse the offer , let em starve, and kill one another. They would do this and more to us if given a chance.
I beleive that congress should enact legislation to require states to revert to territorial status in return for national bailouts.
They would get one non-voting delegate in the house, the opportunity to select a handful of delegates in the presidential primaries and an appointed territorial governor.
The state (or significant portions thereof) would get the opportunity to petition for readmission to the union once they demonstrated solvency.
These means, for instance, that conservative counties in northern/inland California could petition separately for readmission as a new state.
