As much as I hate that place I’d move there if it left the union. Of course we know that won’t happen. It won’t even happen in Texas.

I was born there. When I left, I said ‘I’m never going back. It’s too damn hot.’

12 states and a few decades later, I’m in New Hampshire, and well, LA is looking pretty good. Not New Orleans, but rural LA.

I commented on other posts that succession would be squashed by force and wouldn’t be possible.
I’d like to recant those comments.

I now believe it would be very possible with the inclusion of several states to remove itself from the union and form a new nation.

The new nation would have to set up diplomatic relations with the united states. New trade commerce. Tariffs . And ways to travel for instance if Ohio and Texas succeeded how would you travel within the new nation.
The declaration of independence gives the states the right to succeed.

Long term plans would be for a peaceful existence with the united states. Of course the succession would not be peaceful . Done through laws and simultaneously with participating states would help prevention of violent actions.

Read a good article online. Written by a Yankee , like myself.
