[quote:Mysterysoul:MV8xMzMyNzU1XzIxODk5Mzk0XzU2NjZCQjNC] IMO alot of states can't stand on their own feet without a bit of federal help, seceding prolly wouldn't be in the best interest of a lot of states. Even the ones with military bases have to remember the military will remove all assets such as Soldiers(those willing of course), vehicles, and what not. the land and base may be returned to the state but it would be up to the state to fill it. I am not a big fan of a large federal presence in any state, but i agree that some measure should be taken so that a large presence and control should be removed and allow a state to do what IT feels is in it's best interest for it's people.

It's been a subject for discussion for some time, especially since the economic meltdown in 2008.
Even the MSM are beginning to discuss the issue, as the US seems increasingly divided along political, religious, social and economic lines:

If you would like to see your State secede, do you think:
a) It should've seceded years ago.
b) It should secede now.
c) It should secede when further reasons to do so develops.
If you are NOT in favour of secession, how do you feel about others considering this as an option?
Please don't misunderstand and think that this post is meant to be in any way adversarial. I am just curious about what fellow GLPers' thoughts are on the subject.
