    how can North Carolina impose a tax (or take away a deduction) on people who presumably don't pay taxes in North Carolina?  If I live in South Carolina, and my child goes to Duke and votes in NC, how will the state of North Carolina punish me?  How can they stop me from claiming the child as a dependent on my taxes in South Carolina and my federal taxes?  How can they stop those states and the feds from recognizing it?  How will they even detect me without investigating the vote of nearly every voter from a college campus, finding out who their parents are and than tracking down their parents tax returns?

    This is just a stupid plan.  Not to mention its unconstitutional.
