Is there not an advantage to intellectually dispassionate states, unlike Kentucky, letting backward states be backward? Shame the backward states by making proper standards universal except in the religious south, but fighting these voters who elected Kim Davis isn't going to heal the rift but drive it deeper.

Fund a federal program for states to decide how to retool human labour from specific labour like Mining, logging, Retail work into growing job areas. Then state fund an inter-American worker moving credit or program and watch backward states lose needed labour to better states.

Throw in a high-school equivalency test at the start for whoever wants it, and you've made citizens valuable enough that backward states have to bend to make them stay.
