Guess where the industries that vacated the north and upper midwest went?

South.

Yeah, sure. Let’s leave. This time, peacefully.

Including much of the military-industrial complex. A large portion of the petrochemical industry has been here since its beginning.

Yeah - *Puhleeeze*, don't throw us in that briar patch...

A peaceful secession would be for the “Southern” States to withhold tax and all other revenues to Fed not to mention oil, gas, food and goods going to the Red States. How long would the Fed Gubmit stand with little coming in a lots going out to the Red States freeloaders?

On the whole, the balance of economic power is much different than in 1860.
