Who is John Galt? Where is Galt's Gulch? Judging from the election results map, I'd say that John Galt is somewhere in the red states. Also the location of Galt's Gulch is represented by the red states on the same map. It is a large area, most adjacent to each other. Within this area there is massive agricultural resources, equally massive energy reserves and manufacturing areas. The transportation corridors run in all directions across this area. It could survive on its own. What do the coasts contribute to this area? At the present time, this area ships goods to both coasts, for their survival. The coasts nothing of value to the red state area. The red state area could be Galt;s Gulch and survive well. Maybe the time has come. Maybe.
