Every state in this nation could make it as their own country. Well, if they had a conservative in office, that is. The states that choose the socialist route would be plauged with all the same fiscal trouble that we're in right now.

"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream – the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order – or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism." -Ronald Reagan
