A few million dollars would be enough, I'd think, for a place where they could be happy, home school their kids, shoot guns and pray all day, all the things white people do. Ted Nugent could fly in and play a gig now and then. Hank Williams Junior could retire there and be among his Obama-hating kind.

The Koch brothers and Donald Trump could get in on this thing, kick in a few million. Trump could probably get some kind of Mt. Rushmore erected in his image. They could use his toupe overhang for a hang glider ramp. It would be a win-win for everybody.

They could even reenact the Civil War any time they wanted to. Whether they could convince extras to go there and play the parts of the black people, I don't know, but that's what they invented blackface for, right?

In the next installment of Secession Chronicle, we'll try to imagine just what the government and society of the Nuevo Confederacy would look like, if such a thing came to pass.

Surely there's an island for sale somewhere they could afford. If 200,000 people contributed a few bucks, they could probably score something nice, not just a pile of rocks with a few palm trees on it. We're talking something with some paved roads, parking, maybe a helo pad, shuffle board, etc. A lot of these folks hate the EPA because it protects animals, plants and other useless things, so there shouldn't be a big demand for furry creatures and greenery to keep them happy.
