    nwdryad: What about all the loyal Americans there who continue to fight for the Constitution despite total corporate media blackout? If they did secede, it would be a military dictatorship within a decade and that cancer would spread through Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma and infect the rest of the US.

    With a corporation, it would operate the same as in a bankruptcy except any and all profits would go in payment of fines instead of to the owners.

    Stew Bek: As Populist Stephen McLalley, wrote back when the gold standard was the law: “Imagine a yardstick three feet in 1789, in 1809 was 19 1/2”, in 1849 4’, in 1872 38 1/2" and in" 189? (when it was written), “4’ 3.9”. What a wonderful thing to measure cloth by, to be sure. Yet we measure our debts and credits by no more accurate a standard."

    comicsssfan: This is the first time I have heard North Van called “desolate windswept Canadian plain”. Drizzly mountainous highrises is more accurate.
