          • I mean if they want to concede the Governors Mansion to Walz I am not going to stop them. You would think they would learn with Jason Lewis but hey they prove daily they are not very smart.

              The dumbest people in the country all went to one party.

              It's amazing. Fifty years ago the left and right were only divided between kind people and greedy people. Now they are divided between the smart and the stupid.

                Oh goody. All I remember was Pawlenty was supposed to be a moderate. But, even a moderate was willing to ****ing destroy the credit of the State. Now they're into nominating full bore nuts and QAnon supporters.

                      We can just redo it. Screw them.

                      In fact just take everything* the Dumpies did the last 4 years and shred it. The day before January 21, 2021 is January 20, 2017.

                        Tolls northbround on the Mackinac Bridge would probably jump to $20.

                        Lake State would close immediately. NMU only pulls in about a third of their students from the UP and another third comes from the LP, so they'd see a drop in enrollment. Tech would be in a little more trouble than I thought. About 2/3 of their enrollment comes from the lower peninsula. NMU and Tech would need to set up some type of tuition reciprocity.

                          So you're saying the rural part of a state that believes it is full of true self-made patriots who could survive on their own with only rain water and gumption would in actuality find themselves in a lot of trouble without help from the cities and suburbs?

                            Not that I see it ever happening, but if it did, I could see Mackinaw and Chippewa counties staying with the LP (or just half of Mackinaw that would align with the west edge of Chippewa county) just because of the Bridge and SSM.

                            Annual maintenance is $15 Mil for the bridge. US Census listed the UP as having 311,361 people in 2010. That means each person, including children, would owe at least $50 per year.

                              I was assuming split ownership, so that would drop to $25 per person.

                              Still, it would be about as viable as that Northern Colorado secession talk from a few years ago.

                              • It's not happening. Outside of tourism, the UP economy would have to heavily rely on forestry, wood/paper products, and hope for a big copper/iron shortage that would justify restarting most of the mines. It would basically be Cold Kentucky.

                                I think it would actually be more likely that the western counties (particularly the MI/WI border counties that adhere to Central Time) vote to secede from Michigan and join Wisconsin, thereby turning it from purple to "Lean R" overnight. Not sure if that would be legally possible.
