Problem: The profligate spending and hyper-regulation of your progressive politicians has collided head-on with the biggest economic crisis since the 1930s.
Great idea, right? Right? So, let's do something politicians are genetically incapable of, and think past stage one:
Stage one: pass laws to force one of the richest corporations in the world to do something its leaders do not want to do.
Stage two: spend the next five years in litigation over the laws.
Stage three: Win.
Stage four: Said corporation, being flush with soon-to-be-taken-by-force cash, runs the numbers and figures out it will be far more expensive to stay and live under the point of a gun than it will be to move somewhere else.
Stage five: Corporation moves its entire operation to a friendlier state, cutting loose thousands of replaceable jobs and cratering an entire economy in the process.
Stage six: Nevada becomes even more successful.
