PLACE YOUR INTRADE BETS - Which U.S. State Would Win A Modern Civil War?
If Every U.S. State Declared War Against the Others, Which Would Win? This question originally appeared on Quora. It was taken from Quora's "hypothetical battles" topic, where readers "can ask questions and get answer on fighting that wouldn't likely or ever happen in real life."
Answer by Jon Davis, veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps:

These are the accounts of the Second American Civil War, also known as the Wars of Reunification and the American Warring States Period.

After the breakup, many wondered which states would come out in control of the power void created by the dissolution of the United States. There were many with little chance against several of the larger more powerful states. The states in possession of a large population, predisposition for military (i.e.) military bases, and a population open to the idea of warfare fared the best. In the long term, we would look to states with self-sufficiency and long term military capabilities.

Here are the states that held the greatest strategic value from day one. They have the ability to be self-sufficient, economic strength, military strength, the will to fight, and the population to support a powerful war machine. Read more [link to www.slate.com]

Re: PLACE YOUR INTRADE BETS - Which U.S. State Would Win A Modern Civil War?
A modern Civil War would be a guerrilla war against the System's "brain trust".

Think the Media, community organizers, lawyers, politicians, lobbyists, corporate executives, pundits, celebritards, professors, federal law enforcement...you get the picture.

The war would be fought in the Federal Government's nexus (DC/NYC). When the New York Times obituary page starts to read like Who's Who in America, they would quickly lose their appetite.

Any successful war would hit them where it hurt the most: Their bottom line.

So...any state could win it. But few could survive on their own. Texas should be the first, but my bet is California, after they go bankrupt and the bankrupt Federal government can't help out. The "flyovers" and inter-mountain West would join Texas. Dixie would break off. New England and the Great Lakes states would form a nation. Ditto the "Left Coast" (probably two nations, California and Cascadia).

Texas, they can self-survive with food,cotton, and other resources, they have their own dedicated power stations(only state in the US with this), and they have a lot of armed civilians for a militia. Texas also has oil so they can grow in power and keep a big income coming.


So Texas is one of the few states that could easily survive.

Any state with a large Mexican population is S.O.L. I'd go with Montana. Their back up to Canada would have many advantages.
