[quote:Anonymous Coward 1026599:MV8xMzMyNzU1XzIxOTAwMTQ2X0I1MDY4RTZB] [quote:Anonymous Coward 1238108] I'm 72 yr old and on SS. Almost all of my savings are gone...so I'm dependent on SS...so no, I don't wish my State to secede. [/quote] You would have to go on your states welfare program if your state secceeded. I am SURE that people in your stage of life would be provided for by any state that chose to go out on its own. There would be some changes in paperwork, but SS is running on empty right now anyway. On the odd chance that things went rough for you for a while, you would have to rely on a family member for assistance. Tough on the pride, but as you know, that is how things used to be in your grandparents day. Hang in there... :-) [/quote]
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:
'Will America Break Up?' Washington Times:

'Imagine Breaking Up the United States' Wall Street Journal:

'Will the US Break UP?' Washington's Blog:

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.
