If you REALLY want it that way, have a blast...But the new country of red states would hold all of the cards to the new blue states' countries' economy...Liberals wouldn't last 18 months...

Add to that the fact that "blue states" would supply entitlements to their citizens because they believe the government exists to take care of them while the "red states" would let individuals invest as their choosing, you can probably cut that 18 months in half...
It figures you would think that the right would do better. But I would make that bet so fast it would make your head spin.
