    Every nickel everyone in that state has paid in, and might expect to benefit from some day,

    would be gone.

    Did you factor that into your calculations?

    Keeping the hundreds of billions they paid into SS and Medicare for ourselves will be a good down payment.

    No one who has ever thought it would be a good idea has ever thought it through or even considered that there may be a few drawbacks. They just secede, re-enslave the black folks and before long they are all Kentucky colonels sipping mint julips on the porches of their vast plantation estates.

    Well, that's one way to make Social Security and Medicare solvent for many decades. :eusa_clap:

    Every federal office, installation, etc., in your state disappears. Every resident of your state holding a federal job is suddenly unemployed.

    If you're in the seceding state and 60+ years old, you're probably already getting it. The checks would stop, immediately.

    There's your privatization of Medicare and Social Security, in its purest form. lol
