Be careful what you wish for, because your governor could become President Bentley of the new country of Alabama. It may not be long before some "policy wonk" in Washington decides the deficit can be reduced by allowing Alabama to peacefully leave the Union.

Alabama receives $1.75 for every $1.00 sent to the federal government. (I would like to find an investment that provides this rate of return.) Based on the population of Alabama this means we pay $4,802,740 in federal taxes and receive $8,404,795 in return. If Alabama were gone, that would be an initial savings of $3,602,055.
