If ever there was a state financially and socially ready to leave the union, it’s us. If it could be done without closing borders or too big a disruption to transport and trade, i wonder what that would look like with a few decades of preparation.

The last time some states were serious about leaving the union, it didn't end well though.

Yeah even in the capacity that they’re talking about it; it would still be a territory (which would still be wild). “Union let’s it’s best earner go independent”; is a headline that’s never going to happen.
