    I think the split in this country means that states should be much more autonomous so I am no longer at the mercy of backwards Southern states.

      pointed out that the concept of  "State's Rights" might not be as bad as it's always been thought to be.

      With State's Rights, liberal, blue states can eliminate all the cultural warfare laws - gay marriage, gay adoption, abortion on demand, no 10 commandments posted all over the place, intelligent sex education, and none of this 'Creationist' crap they teach in Texas.

      Since the original 'state rights' states are welfare states, blue states like NY and CA can keep the dollars they send to the government that goes to the welfare states.  This means they could balance their budgets and lower the tax rate for working Americans.
