Re: AMERICANS: DO YOU THINK YOUR STATE SHOULD SECEDE?
The rest of the country thinks my state should secede. I'll just wait til it drops off into the ocean.
The good news is that, according to the Obama administration, the rich will pay for everything. The bad news is that, according to the Obama administration, you're rich.

Re: AMERICANS: DO YOU THINK YOUR STATE SHOULD SECEDE?
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.



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... :-)

Maybe more support from the local community as well? Local 'people power' projects might become more empowered/important?

Seceding: Where does one logically stop?

"It is all the more curious, incidentally, that while laissez-faireists should by the logic of their position, be ardent believers in a single, unified world government, so that no one will live in a state of 'anarchy' in relation to anyone else, they almost never are.

And once one concedes that a single world government is not necessary, then where does one logically stop at the permissibility of separate states? If Canada and the United States can be separate nations without being denounced as being in a state of impermissible 'anarchy,' why may not the South secede from the United States? New York State from the Union? New York City from the state? Why may not Manhattan secede? Each neighborhood? Each block? Each house? Each person? But, of course, if each person may secede from government, we have virtually arrived at the purely free society, where defense is supplied along with all other services by the free market and where the invasive State has ceased to exist."

Regional unions (like NE, NW & SW, Atlantic region and the plains) would work great for many states, but the rust belt and some southern areas are basket cases. They wouldn't survive without the federal support. (I'd split California in two joining the SW or NW unions)
