Lets refresh and review how I came into this....... liberals like to pretend certain post never occurred on the same thread.

The ability of Trump supporters to ignore evidence is not surprising. It takes a certain amount of intelligence to understand obscure evidence like...you know....words.

You see Late you should have taken Drlees course of action and left the conversation at that point.

There was one comment about the states going separate ways. Even if we did (which we won't) Red states will still need commerce.
So that throws your... let's be nice and call them flights of fancy... out of the window.
Moving onto the next part. If Red states blocked transportation, that could mean war. How crazy do you want to get? The premise was "starving us out". We could import more, and grow more. Meat would get more expensive for a while, but it wouldn't exactly hurt most Americans to eat less meat... The price would go up for food, but we could ship across Canada, up from Latin and South America, there are a lot of countries south of the border that like money.
There are thousands of abandoned farms on the East coast. One of the things I advocate for is bringing back regional farming. The potential is enormous. It'd take some time, but it's very doable.
Most Red states get more money than they send in taxes. Quite a bit more. The butt ugly reality is you need us more than we need you.
Food insecurity is real. Ever hear of google?
First question is it even possible for you and Drlee to make a post without a personal attack or some type of insult?
You chimed into the discussion and I have proven you are so far out of you depth of understanding, food security is snow flake SJW term that has nothing really to with what we are debating here and I already answered on the last thread you just pretended I didn't. i
The butt ugly reality as you put it , is you don't even know the simple concept and difference of what a commodity, produce, and food are.
Liberals and farming are concept that are foreign and failing at the same time. Regional farming won't work because food prices are dervived from world supply and demand economics.
How are you elites running the Blue States going deal with your egg prices 5 times what they could be bought for in red states. How are you going satisfy the people? Hold guns to their heads and force them to pay those prices? Sounds like you are saying Blue States are going to run by communists. Does it mater how rich the Blue States are when you have hyper inflation.
But but ........But hey Drlee says Red State people are stupid and Blue States are smart and wealthy.
