What happens? Democrats will be faced with the reality of having to feed, clothe, and house themselves. The might have to dress them selves and pay their own bills... they will have to decide on their own when to inhale and exhale, when to go to the bathroom and when to blink! Oh the horror! People will die in the streets!
Lol! Mainly what will happen is people will realize they can live without the government! What a shock! Well except for all the leeches that actually "work" for the government ... they might be forced to get real jobs!

Kinda off topic, but hey, I just noticed that this post is the 1951st post I have posted(Oh! that I had that many hubs), so in effect this is my birthday post, for I was born in that year, 1951!
It would have been neat to have posted this one on my actual birthday, but I guess that would have meant being silent for a month or more!
Slightly more on topic, just imagine if everyone agreed that the country ran better WITHOUT federal government, and all power was returned to the individual states, with only the army being federal.... just a thought!
