    The quickest disaster would be the Republicans war on minorities. Take a look at Georgia. Possibly a billions dollars in crops lost because of draconian right wing laws (cut...off...nose...to...spite...face). Then there are the complaints companies can't find workers from bus boys to janitors to dishwashers.

    But the long term disaster would be what Republicans would do to education. We already know what they think about education. They would slash and burn and what's left over would be "magical creation" and "revised history". They would create a generation of Americans who haven't been this uneducated for at least the last two hundred years.

    Red States are already supported by Blue States. How long would Blue States want their money to continue to support people who think "yall" is a real word? And talk about lazy. Why can't those in Georgia find workers? Because white people won't do those jobs.

    The Georgia Agribusiness Council estimates the total loss stemming from spoiled and unpicked produce to be close to $1 billion.

    And that doesn’t include other crops such as pecans and cotton that will be harvested next.

    Farmers have had to leave crops in the field due to a labor shortage they say stems from the state’s new immigration crackdown. Council president Bryan Tolar even if crops get picked, there may not be enough workers to process them.

    Crop Losses Could Top $1B

    "States Rights" would be a terrible disaster for Republicans and Red States. Imagine the mess they would create if left on their own.

    Georgia and Hawaii will be amused that you claim they are Republican states.

    Passive again.

    States Rights is a product of the 10th amendment to the constitution not something the rebublicans are making up.
    The problems in georgia stem from the relucktance and lack of enforcement of the existing immigration laws. This then fell to the states to accomplish in light of the feds abdication. The resulting shortage of workers is really a poor showing on the part of the unemployed (not the republicans) The would appear to be too lazy or too proud to accept such work - why should they? heck the state and federal government (democrats) will pay them more to stay at home and watch the boob tube and drink beer.

    Your concept of defining or attributing a failure in States Rights to the republicans just shows how shallow and myoptic a thinker one is.:mad:

    Oh please. Spare me. Republicans want "states rights" to discriminate. It's just the way it is.

    Type rdean, don't just link.
    Georgia is still a Dem state deany!

    Your link is a hack! Georgia is not suing, a private citizen is.

    The case is styled Carl Swensson v. Barack Obama, and the Office of State Administrative Hearings’ Docket Number is OSAH-SECSTATE-CE-1216218-60-MALIHI.

    Speaking as someone who lived for a while in Georgia, I can safely say they are NOT a Dem state.

    Why would you think Georgia to be a democrat state?
