I mean clearly both countries would keep the dollar and have robust trade and open border agreements. I don't think life would honestly be that different for most people economically unless they work in the federal government.

The social laws in the confederacy would be bad, but they are also pretty awful now already!
How could they both keep the dollar?  They couldn’t issue new money without impacting the other. I see no way they could keep the same currency.  I give them zero chance of being amicable on monetary policy, spending and taxation.

There are 11 other countries on 4 continents that use the USD. If we could make it work with Somalia, I'm sure we can work something out with the slave states.

But the question is who controls monetary policy? Who mints currency? Belize, Somalia, etc. are totally reliant on our stewardship of the dollar. You think the New Confederacy would be cool with that?

They're are currently no mint locations in slave states.

There is a Bureau of Engraving and Printing location in Ft. Worth, TX.
Very fitting that the South is home to the HQ of participation trophies

I haven’t followed this thread that closely but I am confident in the USA’s ability to successfully crush another rebellion if it becomes necessary.

Maybe we need a separate rebellion thread, but I agree with you. Tho, we were too soft of them last time. All politicians and officers from the rebellion should have been hanged.  I hope we learn from that.

Pete you were the one who started this thread advocating for the idea!  Now it's treason worthy of a noose!

Whoa, divorce vs bloody rebellion, bro.  Like MTG I just wanted my space, but after I thought about the implications, I now favor marriage counseling

if MAGAs really want to do this, i think they can achieve it pretty easily:
Step 0: As we all know, tazing-your-own-crank level ineptitude is foundational to MAGA
Step 1: identify where they want the border to be
Step 2: start building a wall along that border
Step 3: when/if confronted why they are building a wall, just take a copy of the border wall plans they have for texas and hold them upside down and be like "aw dag nabbit did we do this wrong?"

Step 4: Steps 1-3 are really kind of irrelevant b/c in order to do this they would have to raise money and inevitably some MAGA grifter will take up the task of fundraising to building the confederate border wall and then just pocket all the money while laughing their asses off from some tropical island

Step 5: anyone wanna go in w/ me on starting a non-profit fundraiser to build the confederate wall? Might need something a little more catchy. The State's Rights Wall? the Stem the Tide of Northern Aggression Wall? the SToNA Wall?

Fair enough, I misread.  I don't think anyone wants a bloody rebellion.  You and MTG just wanted to go your own ways.  Irreconcilable differences.

Honestly MAGA desantis, et al are really low energy right now so I doubt it he’s busy getting the living crap kicked out of himself by Disney lawyers

Trump is turning himself in because he can't avoid going to New York and turning himself in is a hell of a lot better than being dragged out of trump towers in cuffs.

Good a place as any.

3/4 of the Cracker Belt Quadrangle affirms their ongoing net population egress status.   #blueanon strongholds taking hits, with one, possibly two losing higher income taxpayers at rates that are arguably not sustainable given their relative debt burden.   Would probably need to cross check against age numbers.

(sorry, new russia & 1/4 cool kids)

It's 2026 and the MAGTIFA collaboration has overturned the Status Quo that has existed since 2015. Former Legendary BBS poster SD has made it safely to the promised land of BEARS after a dangerous and body slamming trip through Nebraska and has lived there peacefully for 10 years.... but now that the Brownbackistan rebels have joined forces with ANTIFA he must leave the mountains of Colorado and undertake another dangerous journey back across Brownbackistan to his only hope....A Lakes Antonio territory once known as Minnesota and an old friend named pete who claims to have a pontoon boat fast enough to ferry them all up to Canada before MAGTIFA knows whats going on.

Will he make it safely across the plains or will he get captured and have to surrender all of his CC points to the MAGTIFA rebels?!?

Maybe this sucker gets kicked off when Trump is imprisoned in Georgia on state charges (8 electors have accepted immunity so apparently something is brewing)....then gets elected president of the United States and the military has to decide whether to follow his orders (or his VP's orders) and bust him out.

This particular topic is interesting. I mean, no doubt that maga political leaders hate the crap out of them, but the maga voters have spent the last generation masturbating to the flag, the thin blue line flag, cammo, and stealth bomber flyovers. it will be the most amazing trick the maga leadership has pulled to date if they get the maga voters to 180 on that.
