The US government does not allow Louisiana to tariff good moving through the Port of New Orleans or the Port of South Louisiana or Baton Rogue.
Nor does the US government allow Louisiana to control its resources such as its mineral rights (the Department of the Interior does this).

Either way you are still a troll and have no say in the matter.
This is a nation founded under the US Constitution not the Articles of Confederation (as you seem to think...we are a nation not a loose confederation of semi independent states)

Corporate welfare DWARFS social welfare. Hell, the oil subsidies alone outpace most other entitlements.

The USA was the only industrialized nation that didn't offer a Healthcare program for its citizens.
A healthier, better educated child is a more productive adult. The other way ends up being far more expensive.
