A Modest Proposal

Posted in Government and Politics by TeeJaw on Thursday, April 7, 2011, 6: 42 AM

I guess I’d be called a radical if I offered a modest proposal — That Texas and Arizona secede. Between the two, and without the taxes and oppressive regulations the rest of the country imposes on them, they’d soon have a GDP to rival that of the U.S., along with a drug-free immigration policy. No income tax! They’d certainly have full employment from day one. Texas already has the best hospitals and medical research facilities in the world so they’d quickly become the world capital of medical tourism. With the thriving port city of Houston their import/export market would flourish. Maybe not such a radical idea, you think?
Oh yeah, what name? How about Texarkana? Or “The Free Republic of Texas?”
Rick Perry could be the George Washington of the new country.
