"Let red states secede and live in isolation": After living is a couple of these states, I agree. Let them go - please. Plus, as part of the "secession treaty" provide for anyone living in a blue state who has red state values and is unhappy with blue state values to self-deport. And as an incentive, have the blue states totally pay their relocation expenses to the red state of their choice. Since the red states take more from the Federal government than they give and the blue states give more than they get, the blue states of America national debt would be significantly reduced and the red states could continue their self-imposed poorness.

The sooner the REAL USA gets rid of the racist Red State Haters, the better.
Please, secede!

What a stellar choice for those of us with the ability to reason. Live in a red area where jaywalking is punishable by death, where police checkpoints exist at every corner, and where gays are not allowed, OR live in a blue area filled with freeloaders, criminals, and politicians who are capable of nothing except for spending other peoples money.

I'm glad it won't happen, because watching you blue and red idiots argue back and forth, and justify your own peoples corruption is better than comedy central. Most of you partisan hacks whose 4 cylinder brain powers an 8 cylinder mouth couldn't tell the difference between so called blue/red policy.

Great idea, we in the red states will take our business and corporations, military, farms, churches and guns. You can have all of the entitlement people along with Hollywood. You can also have the criminals and illegal aliens plus we will throw in the occupy losers while we keep our banking industry and stock market.

Wmarincic,
The "Entitlement People" you mention are mostly in the Red States... and they get their "Entitlement Funds" mostly from the Blue States.
Of the 32 states which receive more than they contribute, 27 states (84%) are Republican Red States.
Of the 18 states which contribute more than they receive, 14 states (78%) are Democrat Blue States!
If the Red States secede from USA, the result would be a tax cut for the Blue States (Donor States) who fund the Red States (Welfare States) entitlements.
