No they don't, they rob you and kidnap you and commit even more crime, becomes a third world country, why don't ppl see this?
High rate of gun owners in Louisiana can solve this problem. It would be rough for awhile but they would find out real quick who it better armed.
I do no support secession but would absolutely love it if Louisiana told the fed to keep their entitlement programs aside from a few basic ones. I agree with someone else's list of Medicaid for elderly/children. Add WIC and an Unemployment program that actually follows the rules that they set forth and I could live with that.
