Tea For Two

If a government is large enough to give you everything what you want

it is large enough to take everything you have.

-Davy Crockett

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance,

and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

-Winston Churchill

What would be the consequences of Secession from the Union?
It is true that seceding from the union can have some very desirable consequences, but it can also have some very undesirable consequences. Let us look at some of the pros and cons on the good side of the ledger. We have the elimination of the federal income tax and federal regulations, including mandatory healthcare system. On the con side, we have the problem of paying for many programs and requirements of a nation, which we do not do as a state. For instance, defense and education. There many other things that the federal government gets involved in that we would have to assume full responsibility for, once we became a sovereign country.
Many of our states actually collect more money from the federal government than they give to the federal government. This of course is most common in the poorer states such as Alabama or Louisiana. If Alabama became a sovereign country could possibly take care of itself? How would they pay for the social welfare programs that currently uses for safety nets?read more
