The Week magazine reports that there will be a vote in California on secession from these United States. Oh boy! Then we could kick out New York, where Trump has his principal domicile and declare him King of New York and invalid as President!
Just joking, folks. But think about it. If all the states were fiefdoms -- which they CERTAINLY are not now, lol -- Ohio could charge a border tax on all good shipped across itself. Heck. We could send up drones to record taxes from all the plane passengers and goods that fly over our fair state!
Toll booths on all our highways and bridges. The railroad trains would go bankrupt paying all the foreign duties levied by each state. Not sure how fees would be assessed on the Mississippi and Missouri rivers, though.
Hell, let's be honest. We've already lost Michigan and Wisconsin to the oligarchs, and who ever thought the PEOPLE owned New York?.... Obamacare would become a far distant legend, and so would any retirement plans, including Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, not to mention our armed services.....
