    With the recent fervor from the Right about states’ rights, particularly in relation to health care reform, and recurring noises throughout Obama’s presidency about Texas threatening to secede, a salient question is worth considering. What would it look like if all the conservatives formed a “utopia” in Texas, say, and broke away from the United States?

    The fascinating thing about conservatism is that many poor people subscribe to its principles thanks in large part to Fox News and talk radio, even though it calls for doing away with the safety net. This is crucial for forming a conservative utopia because the wealthy business interests who push for deregulation need the impoverished to provide (usually cheap and hard) labor and perform other men

    While the poor would likely suffer the most at first, since freedom from “government intrusion” in the workplace guarantees the absence of minimum wage laws, sanitation requirements and unemployment benefits, ultimately the entire society would implode, since, as the sub-prime mortgage crisis proves, unfettered free markets concentrate most of the wealth in the hands of a few mega financial firms, which would destroy themselves by creating a massive boom-bust cycle, leaving everyone destitute.
    I have to laugh every time some fucktard makes the claim that the sub-prime collapse was due to unfettered free market or deregulation or capitalism.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    They didn't say what the Liberal states would look like, did they.

    Massive taxes, massive regulation, massive crime, massive censorship , massives strikes, massive protests massive bureaucracy and very few liberties.

    A place that could quicky become a dictatorship, or it would be total a anarchy.

    But they would still blame someone else for their misjudgement and out right screw ups.

    And one more thing, we would have the farms, the oil, the mines and most of the guns.

    It would be interesting to know what they think the Confederate Constitution looked like. I suspect that they have no idea, as most people who like to claim that "The US stole Texas from Mexico..." have never read the Texas Declaration of Independence.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    Do you think your vibrators would sell better in the Red Country or Blue Country?

    We are very tolerant on CU, but we have rules, and they are there for very good reasons, and they are rules that shall not be circumvented.

    We all know how easy it is to circumvent the rules. We have seen this happen with both of these words, far too often.

    And now, we're calling time. No more of these words on CU. No more circumvention of the rules.
