    That's what happens when the carpetbagger and scalawag and poltroon population surpasses the indigenous population of freedom loving people in a state. The above three groups vote in their like minded fools to scrap freedom for forced serfdom, and obedience to 'the Crown'.

    Somewhere between 0 and 1. Depends if the vote is on a Monday morning after a weekend of wenching and other debauchery.
