Louisiana wants to 'peacefully' withdraw from the Union? (Updated P.1)



The Feds must be laughing.

Louisiana receives more from the Federal Government than its citizens pay in. Yet it wants to leave?

Good or bad?

Sign Petition Here

**** looks like Louisiana Started it - but it has spread to 50 States. The White House promises to review it. What will become of this? Is it good or bad? What if all states leave?

Well, if they secede they could end entitlements in the state completely and cut taxes so rich people would move here and poor people leave. Profit.

Is there a word for the complete opposite of white flight?

Does that count federal taxes on oil? I'm not saying you're wrong, but the federal government has a way of changing the meaning of a word in a sentence in order to make the sentence mean what they would like it to mean.

If they keep the population of Orleans Parish nothing will change, so what's the point?

If LA was its own state, had a 15% flat tax, ended all entitlements except a basic medicare for the elderly and medicaid for children ONLY, LA would be staaacked. Assuming the US Navy didn't blockade our oil rigs.

The fact this board even tries to intelligently discuss this is a disgrace.

If you completely end entitlement programs those people run to Houston.

So you are in favor of entitlements just to keep them from robbing you? You realize it eventually leads to Greek mobs when the money runs out right?

We could also save a lot of money by getting out from under inane, wasteful regulations like corn-based ethanol, the EPA mandated "clean" gas blends that provide no actual benefit, or the COE practice of dumping dredged sediment off the edge of the continental shelf.

No one is ending entitlements Republicans included. Reform, maybe. However, I have no intention of living in a third world country where the rich are rich but have to live in compounds to be safe.

That being said, I encourage secession, I would love to watch this fail miserably from afar.
