Red staters, if you don't like the election results, by all means, SECEDE FROM THE UNION! I would be the first to vote Texas, Arizona, and the bible belt out. We chose "socialism" and a bunch of us voted for gay marriage and legalized marijuana, while Arkansas didn't even want medical marijuana.

By all means tea partiers, go ahead and break free of our liberal, godless union. We would be better off without you anyway:

They'll quickly devolve into third world status without the blue states to subsidize them.

Hate to break it to you, but the average red stater already looks pretty third world to me:

There aren't blue states. There are big blue cities within red states. Duh.

Texas and the south, with their gender aware, macho culture, would whip the crap out of the wussified, gender confused, suck-at-football blue state America, lol!

Ignorance of the facts is no excuse.

I'm from a blue state. We have 40 million people. Anything we get is spread across 40 million people on a per capita basis. We receive on a total dollar basis more than most states, including every red state in the middle of the country including Texas.

New York and California are two states that receive multiple billions - more than any red state - but because of the large population base the per capita receipt is small.

What are you guys in the blue states going to eat? The food is grown by us redneck tea partiers in the Bible Belt.

It is getting closer and is certainly something to think about.

The real question is who seceded -- because in reality it's the "blue" states that have dumped the Constitution and the "red" states that are more American.

They're going to eat organic fair trade tofu from Uganda, smoke weed and then bank on obamacare and stem cell research to solve their medical woes.
