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.

With our ~54 electoral votes gone, the US would never elect another left president. It'd be Jesusland for real

If CA ever tried to leave the country many other states would follow suit.

I honestly wouldn't hate America splintering into several different countries.

I would immediately move from the south east States, AKA SECountry.

It would be the worst country immediately.

You mean the states that would be financially reliant on the northern states because they haven't been revenue positive in the previous 100 years?

Yeah they go on about not needing the blue states but other than Texas most republican states don’t make any money, which makes it even better when the vote against aid for people then beg for it when they need it because they’re poor

You support welfare and socialism that’s the result. Those states (or people) become reliant on the handouts instead of using them as a crutch to become self sustaining.
