I ran across a pointer to this gem again. As much as I admire the glorious symmetry of the premise and solution ("The blue states are godless, immoral, and don't show us enough respect, so they aren't worthy to be in our union"), I'm afraid it would never work. The red states, after all, are fond of pointing out that they're militaristic and view abortion as a holocaust of innocents. Within a few years of our expulsion (and their loss of blue state subsidies), they'd be morally compelled to invade us to save the children.
