The genius of the Federalist system is that you can vote with your feet. If your state is full of  dweebs, jackasses, losers, hump-monkeys, pencil necks, pot-heads, punks, pukes, or illegal aliens, all you have to do is move.

The 50 states have gone through major upheavals in recent decades.  The entire cultural tenor of the United States has been fundamentally transformed from the time fin cars cruised the streets of America and moms took pride in their Tupperware collections. The nicknames of the states have become outdated, vestiges of eras past and the arcane histories of a lot of dead white guys.  I submit to the 50 states my propositions  for their new aliases, pseudonyms, handles, monikers, and AKAs.  These names are fitting to the character of the untidy, polarized, and decadent trends that define contemporary state politics and cultural foot rot. These are the Untidy States of America.
