“Mr Snowden wasn't entrusted with the information, he actively sought out information for which he had no right and provided the that information to a foreign national. This is espionage.”

“Yes, he won but not because of Obamacare because the day it was signed, Gallup showed a majority of Americans were against it. It was like he and the Democrat operatives jammed it down the throats of Americans agains the will of the majority. One day, you will wake up from your Obama induced hypnotic trance, and you will see the truth shooting in like a bolt of lightening.”

“I'm just looking forward to the day when industrial hemp is viable in Colorado and Washington. There are many commercial uses for hemp that, since it is in the same classification as marijuana, the US is missing out on. Now that Colorado and Washington have legalized pot, industrial hemp can make some headway.”

“The admission by the Texas AG is probably going to open a big can of worms for them:

"Citing one extreme example of a law he would strike down, Kennedy wrote in his concurring opinion in Vieth v. Jubelirer that “[i]f a State passed an enactment that declared ‘All future apportionment shall be drawn so as most to burden Party X’s rights to fair and effective representation, though still in accord with one-person, one-vote principles,’ we would surely conclude the Constitution had been violated.””

“Hmmm, let me think about that for a minute. Ok, I suspect that many other so called red states would go too. This means that the drain on our economy would be much less than it is now since "red" states consume the majority of federal aide.

Win-win!”

jstanavgguy on May 27, 2013 at 08:47:56

“Now, allow me to enlighten you.

Much of that federal 'aid' is in the form of money spent on federal installations - military bases.

Now, think about this...

Do you think that those red states will continue with the large, never ending welfare programs that the US government has?

And when they do not, where do you think all of those people are going to go? You would see a MASSIVE migration of those who are dependent on the government to the remaining 'blue' states.

Next, illegal immigrants.

Seeing as a change in immigration policy would take place, do you think that the remaining 'blue' states would likely see a massive influx in illegal immigrants?

Next, food and energy.

Where do you think that most of the food and energy used in the US comes from?

The red states.

So, that means the remaining 'blue' states get to import more and more.

And then we come to tax policy.

The 'red' states would likely enact a tax policy that was much friendlier to businesses than the one the US currently has. This would result in many businesses relocating to those red states. And with them, tax paying workers.

Sorry, but the economic realities of such a thing taking place would be much worse on the 'blue' states than the red.”
