Networker provides ample proof that the 2 separate Americas can not talk to each other any longer. Michele Malkin has more brain power in her left middle finger than the total brainpower that Networker possesses, and yet Networker calls Michele's article "stupid" not once but twice ? Insults from the left, gloating by the left, and a dearth of intellectual capacity from the left all contribute to this breakdown in communications between the 2 separate Americas. If you were a betting person,... which of these 2 separate Americas could survive alone without the other ? Go Figure that one out Networker while you're sipping on your free soup kitchen tea. REMEMBER BENGHAZI !!

We'd be just fine without the red states. Actually the blue states pay the most in federal taxes and transfer them to the red states, the blue states have most of the millionaires and billionaires, the high tech capital of the world, the financial capital of the world, the top universities. The blue states are what make America great and what everyone identifies with America . What do the red states do and what value do they provide to the Union? They have high obesity rates, lowest per capita income, low literacy rates, and they try to impose their values on everyone else. How is that freedom?

What do red states provide?
Food, energy, and a lot of the "grunt work" that keeps the country moving.

Oh, and you seem to be confusing university with indoctrination center.

Networker, you seem to forget that all that supposed advantage the blue states seem to enjoy is floating on the sea of a fiat economy.

When it collapses, stay in your blue states and leave the red states alone. We'll have the skills for survival that you were too busy to acquire in your dash for the biggest and shiniest penny.

We can get the food cheaper overseas and we wouldn't have to provide the red states with agricultural warfare and farm subsidies, lowering our taxes. We wouldn't need tariffs on imports that make things more expensive and we've already outsourced much of our grunt work overseas, we can export more. And with our new Latino population that likes us unlike the red states, we can have them do the grunt work for us cheaper. Tell me again what value the red states provide?

Networker, where are you going to get the money to buy the food from overseas? Buying it there adds the cost of importing it and you idiots think you won't have to work to support yourselves. So how do you plan to pay for it?

Blue states don't make the majority of the US' GDP already? Why would that go away just because we don't have Oklaholma and Arkansas?

The red states fight the wars, do the fewest drugs, and don't badmouth the country. Red states give more to charity. Most of the blue cities in the red states (like Detroit) are the ones on welfare too.

I rest my case that the 2 separate Americas can no longer talk to each other ! But I'm going to give it one more try just for shix and giggles:

Say Networker,... as long as you believe that the Blue States of America would "be just fine without the Red States" of America, would you agree to a deal where we separate the 2 separate Americas permanently ? Just cut the Red States loose and let them go. What do you say big guy ?

I take it all back ! Apparently the 2 separate Americas CAN still talk to each other. Why look ! I was just able to broker a deal with Networker whereby the permanent separation of the Red States and Blue States can begin. It's a deal at an ideal time that has come.

The Blue States will keep all those fancy Ivy-League Universities that taught Networker to spell so well. And good luck importing your food ! That's an idea right out of those fancy Universities I suspect ?

As you wrote above so eloquently,..."good riddens" big guy.

I say split the Country County by County. If you look at the electoral map by that what do you see there Networker?
Or how about, anyone who believes in abortion on demand is more than welcome to be aborted themselves. That would solve the Country's problems right there.

If that is the case, then explain the fiscal difficulties of California, Detroit, Chicago, etc.... all run by liberal/progressive ideals, none of which can pay their bills!

State debt to GDP levels are highest among red states:

All the states you mentioned are at the bottom third of the rank. Red states are near the top.
President Obama promises to move the country forward with his recycled pledge of five million green jobs. But in the real world, small businesses are struggling to stay afloat as they deal with the fiscal wreckage of this administration's disastrous venture socialism. Here's the tale of just one Colorado company victimized by the Obama Department of Energy (DOE).

Colorado Distribution Group is a privately held storage and shipping company based in Denver. Thanks to hope-a-nomics, its warehouse is saddled with nearly 7,000 pallets of federally subsidized solar panels (one-third of which are completely spoiled and unsalable), along with related detritus such as...
