    Most adult toy outlets sell porn as well, so we have to think of both objects in a single place.

    Not sure... depends... if you have crazy regulation-happy apparachiks and hyper-social conservatives, I wouldn't sell anywhere legitimately. I'd have to put the laughable labels and pictures of the smiling women using vibrators as neck and back massagers when we ALL know that's not what they're used for.

    If I have regulation-happy apparachiks and laid back libertarians and moderates running the Blue and Red Countries, I'd do gangbusters between smuggling to the Blue Countries and regular buisness.

    Hyper-social cons and those sex-positive libs? Probably would still do well. :p

    This is a buisness that will always find a way to make money because we always have something people want...toys have innovated themselves like crazy (NSFW), and they'll keep going as long as people keep buying.

    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.

    I put the stars in, and I wasn't referring to a person, merely answering Nova's question as to what the DU would think the CSA's constitution would look like.

    What would it look like? Well, there would be some variances per state (and some areas like Austin are liberal), but one thing is for sure, that's where all the jobs are going.

    What would things look like? The blue states would resemble the Soviet Union and the Red States would resemble, well, America.

    It doesn't matter whether you use stars. Please try to follow the policies of the board. It applies to everyone here.

    No way. We'd want nothing to do with them, and conquering liberals just means that we have to feed, cloth and house them while they cojmplain about what fascists we are. No thanks. Besides, they'd build a wall to keep their people from emigrating as their economy collapsed, and we'd maintain it because we don't want unemployable liberals coming into the Red States.

    The differences between the Red States of America and the Blue States of America would be very interesting, though. At a glance, I'd say that the following would apply:

    Free Speech:
    RSA: No limiits on political speech, internet or any other forms of expression that are intended for adults.
    BSA: No limits on explicitly sexual imagerary, or the acts that they document, but strict controls on political speech and funding.

    Economics:
    RSA: High economic freedom index, low marginal tax rates, if not an outright flat tax. In practice, the majority of the RSA would look like Texas in terms of policy.
    BSA: Think Massachussetts or California. Low economic freedom index, high tax rates which penalyze wealthier people and punish success. Poor economic growth, which will be blamed on greedy RSA types, even as they are driven out of business. Eventually, most major cities will look like Camden, NJ.

    Defense:
    RSA: The War Department will be focused on real threats, and will not be pussified into PC doublespeak that fails to identify enemies.
    BSA: The Secretary of Health, Human Services and Defense will oversee a military that is committed to diversity, nuclear disarmament and ensuring that the rights of the enemies of the nation are treated with compassion and fairness, at least until they are overrun.

    Education:
    RSA: States will control their own schools, but national standards of educaiton will require that schools teach history, basic literacy and math and that students are actually able to read their diplomas.
    BSA: Schools will turn out graduates who can barely understand the welfare forms, but the unions will be very well compensated.

    Labor:
    RSA: Unions will be legal in the private sector, but banned in the public sector, in order to prevent public employees from holding the states hostage to their demands. Violence by unions will not be tolerated, and money collected from members will be used only for the purpose that it is collected, which is for collective bargaining, pensions or payment of union activities. Political activities will be financed by voluntary contributions, and laws will enforce the voluntary aspect.
    BSA: Each employee will belong to a union, like it or not, and the union will enforce labor rules and compliance with government policies.

    Immigration Policy:
    RSA: Similar to 1890-1939, with minimal restrictions for law-abiding, gainfully employed immigrants. Deportation of illegals, and especially criminals. Strict quotas on BSA immigration, with further restrictions on those with a history of leftist political agitation and activism. This will be tested as the BSA economy collapses and the Blue Staters start trying to escape what they have voted in.
    BSA: Open borders coming in, but severe restrictions on leaving, especially for the RSA, and especially if you are taking property with you. Expect a series of Berlin Wall type structures to be put up for the purpose of preventing flight.
