What kinds of things do you think would happen if the state collapses? Large-scale layoffs of gov't workers including teachers? Potholes no longer repaired? Rude clerks at the DMV? Collapse of businesses that provide goods and services to the state with subsequent private-sector job loss? Roving bands of armed hooligans going door-to-door and taking your food?

You've been reading the Chicago newspapers lately, I take it. Because it seems to me, from what I've read, that at least three of those five sentences are happening already.

And in California too.

(Granted, one of them is a freebie as it's happening pretty much everywhere and has been for decades.)
