But, obviously, not all the people of a state will want secession. How does a state secede? It just says it secedes and thats it? What do the people do who dont want to secede but still want to live in their state? Would there be a civil war within the state? It cant be a simple matter. It seems like there would be a lot of legal issues to iron out. I live in Louisiana and would love to see it secede, but I have a lot of friends and relatives who dont agree. To me, it seems mind boggling.
There are still areas within Texas that are divided along lines that were created by the referendum in Feb, 1861.

(Problem: People who work for a living are almost outnumbered by those who VOTE for a living (47%).)
“their part of the state had broken off and become West Virginia”
Doesn’t that pretty much lay all these questions to rest?
