The hypocrisy is hilarious. Silicon Valley. Avocado farms. Almond Farms. You name it, anything they bragged about is subsidized by the FEDERAL government which means your state hasn't done a fucking thing exceptional aside from occupy a specific geographic space.
>>720700218 Yes, America wouldn't have been nearly as strong. Due to a retardation in growth we wouldn't have been able to contribute as much fresh troops in the great War. Germany would have sued for peace under more equal terms. Hitler wouldn't have felt betrayed. WWII would've never happened. Ottoman Empire may or may not have lasted so the middle east wouldn't have been so broken.
>>720703525 It's actually the result of an inferiority complex the smaller colonies/states felt during the early days of the union. Liberals had nothing to do with it. The system was designed specifically to allow rural states to feel like their voice mattered. It's antiquated and has since spun out of control. It needs to be reformed or eliminated and replaced with a proper democracy.
But yeah, go ahead, keep thinking it's about checks and balances.
the fact of the matter, that you don't want to admit to yourself, is that rural states matter a lot, where do you put all the agriculture industries, where do put your landfills, where do you conduct dangerous experiments, where do you put your power plants, where do you maintain your forests. Everyone needs places where less people live to fulfill many purposes and people that live in those states should be able to have representation, so a bunch of assholes in some city don't get to control their lives with their completely different sets of concerns.
>>720704961 yeah but every oil outfit in the state pulled out about 6 weeks ago. from what ive heard not a single rig is drilling right now because of the earthquakes that may or may not but probably were caused by fracking. >source: texasfag roughneck
>>720705233 These can be worked around with proper engineering. You don't actually *have* to use large landmasses for farming, power plants or experiments. It might be expensive at first but it's worth it to keep a bunch of people who know nothing about city life from interfering.
Yeah but your ideology is broken, SJW is costing you everything. All these immigrants you want to bring in to replace us have conservative opinions in their home countries, it's only a matter of time before they break the "conservatives are racist against you" conditioning and stop voting blue because in truth you're against all the freedoms they want. They want the freedom to build male-centric, adult-centric capitalistically aggressive communities of pure religious ideology and the second you guys get in their way they'll be done with you. It will also just start to occur naturally as they become more integrated, I mean you want them to be sensitive trannies, they want to be bearded men who beat their wives.
The nature of california is constantly trying to return to its half desert environment that they have to constantly fight back with irrigation, and they wonder why they have water problems, better blame global warming XD
>>720705376 Jesus I wish that was true. There's one in my town right now. My point wasn't production though, but storage. Cushing is a choke point, and until those new pipelines get built, the shit isnt going anywhere. Even when its going in and out all the time, it still maintains about 10% of the country's reserves. More than enough to royally fuck oil prices in the country if something were to happen to it. I didn't mean for that have a sinister context to it, but I couldn't think of a less bad way to say it.
>>720705233 And this is precisely why the EC exists and the genius of the founding fathers.
Liberals will say "hurr durr but population density" without realizing that a lot of the "empty space" they're pointing out is empty because it HAS to be empty. It has to contain national forests. It has to contain hundreds of thousands of acres of the country's produce.
Take two equally sized garages. Park a car (a necessity) inside one. Now put fit as many people standing shoulder to shoulder inside both. Liberals are the faggots standing in the garage without a car crammed into it, trying to look down at the other guys who carpool them to work everyday.
>2 farmers in an acre of farmland vote Republican >3 office workers in an a small office vote Democrat >4 people sat by the beach don't vote for either >look at the size of that farm, clearly Republicans represent all of America!
>>720705939 bunch of oklahomo's down here looking for work. Shits slow down here too but ive heard that has more to do with the price of barrels being so low. there's a bunch of oil up north too, in colorado, wyoming, and the dakotas
>>720706390 A lot of my friends have went to work in the Dakotas. Hopefully Trump ok-ing those pipelines gets some more people back here, because it really has been a ghost town for about 3 years. The leg of the keystone from here Houston was finished then, if I remember correctly. But the part from here to Canada was the part that really mattered.
>Right now, the Democratic Party, which I have called home my entire life, is deeply in love with money. Consequently, its leaders have supported and advanced all kinds of evil, big and small, in devotion to this love affair.
>nu-male betacucks vs RACIST XENOPHOBIC SEXIST TRANSPHOBIC YADAYADAPHOBIC literal nazi's: America Edition
Four years of popcorn, four years of swede incarnates trying to invite dangerous refugees into the states because boohoo the world's problems are our problems :( four years of thirsty commiefornia trying to be a rebellious plastic teen bitch and the media embarrassing themselves. Four years of random chimpouts by American citizens who turn around and go back home under the pretense that Trump will "consider being fair to everyone" like it isn't fair to kick out ILLEGAL immigrants. Average Joe over here protests with cucky boy Shia Labeouf HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US SOME RACIST FACIST SEXIST IS NOT MY PRESIDENT THIS PUSSY GRABS BACK and then looks up women being roughed up to the point of crying in porn before bed. Oh fuck Donald Trump grabs pussies, so immoral and Hitler-like.
If states like california and new york weren't just taking in money from everyone else in the US through pop culture and stock market respectively something tells me their economy would dry up pretty quick.
How is it fair for the insignificant people living in the rural, backwater ass ends of nowhere to dictate how things should be for the people who actually matter living in the major population centers where the majority of the nations GDP comes from?
>>720706678 Nigger, you clearly don't know the difference between taxes and subsidies. I already covered that here >>720701558
Read up. Nobody gives a shit if you pay 40 billion in taxes. If you take 100 bil in subsidies over the same time period it's still a net negative and the rest of the country is propping you dumb motherfuckers up.
In short, the FEDERAL government (the rest of the country) paid to build the agriculture and tech and most every other sectors in blue states as an investment and now you incredibly UNeducated faggots are trying to pretend the revenue from that investment is something you did on your own.
