I think what it perhaps should be is a reminder to dial back the Federalism, remove a lot of the subsidy of the interior states that we're providing. It's gonna be tough to disentangle the economies like that, but it's also plain that the ocean coasts can't keep trying to drag the rest of the country in a direction it doesn't want to go, and that may mean cutting Louisiana, Alabama, and the midwest free.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
