GIVE THEM WANT THEY WANT. MAKE SURE THE FEES ATTACHED TO OWNING PROPERTY IN THESE UNITED STATES IS AT PRIME REAL ESTATE PRICES. SINCE IT'S NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE, THE SKY'S THE LIMIT. MAKE SURE THE TOLLS LEAVING THEIR COUNTRY IS SO EXCESSIVE, IT'S LIKE TAKING A FLIGHT. THERE ARE MANY FEES ATTACHED TO A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO CAN'T ACCEPT LOSING THE CIVIL WAR. I AGREE WITH SOMEONE WHO SAID, "SOUTH CAROLINA: TOO SMALL TO BE A COUNTRY, TOO LARGE TO BE AN INSANE ASYLUM."
