Since we're always being accused of conspiracies (eg Clinton impeachment, Florida vote counting, Jeb Bush's police suppression of the minority vote, ENRON ad nauseum), let's actually engage in one. After all, what is the press going to say about it - "No really folks... this time for real!" Let's select a state with a low popluation and a favorable climate. We could then put out the call for free-market capitalists and small government types to relocate to our chosen location. Following that we could: A) Elect laissez-faire capitalists to as many state and local offices as possible, B) Repeal the majority of intrusive laws (firearms legislation, helmet laws etc.), C) Repeal ALL state taxes (in turn attracting manufacturing and industry), D) Purchase state media outlets and exercize OUR 1st Amendment rights, E) Ignore Washington DC's "If you don't do things our way we'll withhold pork funds" laws by simply rejecting ALL pork funding, F) Modify state welfare by simply offering a one time lump sum payment of a bus ticket to get you to the welfare mecca of your choice, and G) Simply ignore everything from Washington DC - with the exception of national defense. So, whose in with me and where are we going? P.S. If the leftists can accomplish the enactment of their agenda in the Rocky Mountain states and the southwest by simly migrating from Kalifornication, why can't we do something similar?

Right on!!!!! Idaho is a good place. Plenty of hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, skiing, etc...... Plus there are not many laws that need to be repealed! Except the fed ones.

I'll nominate NJ. It will need a LOT of work.

I vote for Texas. It's centrally located. Has every physical geographic feature from swamps to deserts to mountains. It's got pleasant weather.[:D] And, last, but certainly not least, it's already filled with Texans! Even our Demos down here are pretty tame! Eric The(YippeeYiKiYayyy,LittleDoggie!)Hun[>]:)]

Sounds good to me! Montana would be relatively easy as the population is low, but I just recently moved from there, and I'm not missing the snow. WA is nice, but it would take a bit of work to get rid of enough morons (i.e. liberals)

Idaho is the most Republican state in the union. It would be the best place to start. Montana and Utah would be close seconds. I've often thought about what might happen if a state in modern times decided to try this. Would it lead to succession from the union and/or civil war?
