    We're already there, what do you think makes them red or blue?

    You know a state can be 51/49 % and say blue, so the idea is to reshuffle everyone so the states are >95 red or blue, then divide.

    Wow, can't you be exiled from Texas for suggesting that?

    No matter. Where I live, we are 110% American.

    Well, that would be a good idea if it wasn't for the fact that the Demorat states would quickly go broke because there would be no one to support all the freeloaders. At some point the Demorat states would demand that the Republican states bail them out of their fiscal collapse. It would be a perfect example of the ant and grasshopper story.

    As Margaret Thatcher once said: "Socialism is OK until you run out of other people's money."

    Now come on. We all know it doesn't matter where you live. It matters where people think you were born. And if your father was born in Kenya.

    This is a terrible idea, "they" would get all the nice spots. "We" would be stuck with all the overpopulated urban shitholes.

    No, but it makes a difference if you were born in Kenya.

    Maybe not.

    Another fact challenged regurgitation from the Land of Make Believe by the bubble geezer. Who would have thought that was possible?

    Just play along for a while forktongue.

    I just think it would be best if we were separated, you can still call yourself American, but you would be "Republican-American or Democrat-American

    Not much of a clue which way the money flows, huh?

    Hint: It comes from the coasts, and it moves inland...

    Facts.... they're such pesky details.
    I don't think the blue states will be bailed out by the red states.

    ."
    Google, its fact that blue states support the red states, more taxes come in from the blue states then red, more poeple in red states recieve goverment assistance then those in blue.
    I live in a blue state, make over $100K a year in IT, if I moved to a red state would need to take a huge pay cut.

    wait, what? Thought that this had already made the rounds several times...
    Most Red States Take More Money From Washington Than They Put In | Mother Jones

    (although, there were better maps and links before, this is just the first I found)

    I'm ok with reverting the confederate states back to colonies for a couple hundred years. Ok, not all the confed states, just the bible belt ones...Virginia, Florida and Texas can be real states. They receive more than they give and vote against their own self interest (not for a noble reason, but because single social issue voting, and other political idealisms)

    Its called the suburbs, its where people work and make money at companies. And there are some nice cities, like Chicago, San Fran, Boston, and the beach resorts, etc. Although maybe we can visit some national parks in the center of the country sometimes, like we do now, for vacation.
