In order to follow the Constitution to the letter can we accept selling off thirty seven States?
In order to follow the Constitution to the letter we need to peel back the country to the original thirteen states. Shrink the DOD to a loose collection of state based militias and 3 frigates. Eliminate public schools, abandon the infrastructure (replace deteriorating asphalt and concrete highways with wood plank), and with the windfall from putting the LA Purchase on Ebay there should be a surplus, right? Oh yeah no taxation because the Nation can sustain itself with Customs tariffs. That should work right? Strip American citizenship from all those who are beyond the original thirteen states. Maybe they would be Chinese since they're most likely to buy all that property.
