Not any more than it would cost us to build one to keep Californians (and everyone else) from coming here..http://realestate.msn.com/5-fastest-...cities-in-2012

Texas is a wonderful state with a solid economic foundation. The problem is the far right texans who think they can simply threaten to secede and have yet to understand how profoundly backwards the social conservative argument truly is.

I know you're trying to be sarcastic, but here's how this works:
You give $1000 to a multi-millionaire. It goes in the bank and does fuckall.
You give $1000 to a poor person. He immediately spends every cent. This *helps* the economy.

This is why doing things like cutting unemployment benefits, social security, or food stamps during a recession is incredibly fucking stupid. Yes, it is wealth redistribution. Taxes from the rich (who are most able to pay) is converted to income to the poor, and they spend it immediately at local businesses. If the fucking rich would stop sitting on their cash or spending it overseas we wouldn't be having this problem.

By the way, the food stamp program (SNAP) has an 84% return on investment. That means that every dollar spent ends up making $1.84 in economic activity. In other words, fuck you.
