A rhetorical question about the independent spirit and history of Arizona, etc.?

    

People in Arizona consider themselves a rather independent group of people. However, historically, like many states in the region, Arizona has historically received more federal moneys than it put in. In the late 1990s, Arizona was receiving 100 federal dollars for every 87 dollars its corporations & citizens put in. It often receives such moneys as do other neighboring-so-called independent states--through infrastructure, such as that related to the military industrial complex.

The situation has not changed much in recent decades

Should we not call-a-spade-a-spade and say that people in Arizona are usually dependent?

I don't know.
Of course not-- any state that is so dependent on military&federal welfare is not independent
Of course, Arizona and Arizonans represents an independent spirit
Perhaps
Who cares about issues of identity? We are in an economic/social/political meltdown.
