So, with the whole SCOTUS thing being done. I again ask the questions. Whats the value of keeping the union together? We have a radical fundamentalist minority who contributes little to nothing but get to make choices on behalf and against the wishes of the majority of the country. Whats the value for states like New York, Illinois, and California to remain in an union with states like Kentucky, Missisipi, and Missouri?

I’m sick of my taxes supporting these socialist red states!

Blue states (or red) should secede already. We don't need each other. Let the taxes go where they may. Guaranteed the blue states begging for bailouts right now will be hurt more anyway.

It is an outdated framework unfortunately. We need to ammend the constitution to fix a lot of the bs it has.

This is such a dumb take. All different types of people live on those states. How do you propose we divide it up?

like

Some states have fixed majorities that are progressive, others have conservative majorities. Let the rest figure out where they want to go by voting, either as a whole state or by county. It will not be a clean split, but we are better served by having a mainly conservative country and a progressive country. Than a country ruled by conservative minority against the wishes of the rest of country.

Lol the lib coastal states would starve in about a month, California would run dry in a week. They would have no military and little to no manufacturing. All of their best companies would immediately flee as taxes, crime, and regulations would skyrocket, not to mention a hefty tariff slapped on by the “redneck” states. Half the population would flee as not everyone in those states is a leftist. They’d be begging to rejoin the Union in about 6 months.

You don't use your brain much do you? 🤣

Protection: majority of military membership and defensive capabilities are not located in those states, resources: California has some great ag and some minerals but in general lacks the resource infrastructure a lot of the flyover states contribute and in general industry: again, ca with ports could be an outlier but if you look at trade balance between these states and the others you quickly realize that there’s a large neg balance

SA1, I dont think anyone has surveyed the partisan preferrences of CA recruits, so I can't answer with any certainty. I can give you my anecdotal PoV which is probably biased. But of all my veteran friends, those who came and went back to CA are largely independent or more liberal, than the rest.

The right has overplayed its hand.

IL is trending toward junk bond status. CA and NY have 2 of the top 5 highest gini coefficients. There are benefits to having both conservative and liberal ideals represented in government.

EY2, I think diversity of though is nice. But giving a platforn to hate driven, anti-science policies does more harm than good. Especially when those ideas are held by a minority of the population, but have more weight voting, and legislative power than the overwhelming majority of the population's view.

Hi friends, happy Friday. My (aged) dad messed up trying to create treasurydirect account with typo on drivers license which they won’t let him fix and now they’re asking for a certified account authorization form (to prove he is who he says etc). It says notary cannot certify but sounds like banks/credit unions may be able to certify? Anyone experienced/have a suggestion where he can get this form certified? He only has an online bank account so no local bank where he has a relationship.

I am 29F and my boyfriend and I are planning to get married this year after 4 years of relationship. I am earning 14LPA and he's earning 12LPA. Our families are happy with our union. But all my female friends, who are married (arranged) keep saying negative things like people his age are earning close to 40LPA and he's not worth it. They also keep pointing out that he hasn't done higher studies. For me, none of this matters because I fell in love with him for who he is, not money. CONTD....
