if that happened i would move to canada
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/08 - 1:45:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would be fine with that
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/08 - 1:52:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not especially but I get the feeling I wouldn't be too troubled by it either.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/08 - 1:56:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
It doesn't sound very practical from a economic, geographic, political, or... well any point of view, really.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/08 - 1:56:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think it would make economic sense. I mean, I think NY would be better off than some states but we'd have to import produce that can't grow here. I know of a few dairy farms but I don't now where there is a meat farm except a few tiny local ones.

Does NY state make any cars? What about countless other resources?
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/08 - 2:09:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Carmella- NY already does import produce. Lots of it. ??

In response to the question: I'm not one of those people who want that for California, but if (in theory) it would happen, I'd still stay here. It'd be interesting. I'd hope to design the new money!!

Yes, but a lot of oranges come from Florida or California, that is within the country. That would be a foreign country under the question's premises. I know we import a lot but everything from out of state would become an import.

No, but why would m state cesede?
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/08 - 7:05:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
No.. Colorado relies heavily on her neighbors; and useless man-made political contracts would do little but cripple an already beautiful thing Colorado has with her allies

Did you mean secede? Anyway...no. I would move. I like being part of the US.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/08 - 9:20:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
Missouri could live without the rest of u chumps! Jk, we'd be screwed, all we'd have was frikin corn and beans...

LMAO I agree with that statement. We would starve :P
We would have to rely on the redneck hunters to make us deer jerky xD

Anyway..Nah I'd just move out of the country. There would be too much tension for me to stay.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/08 - 11:33:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would like California to be its own country. That would be wonderful.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/08 - 11:50:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
I thought Arizona already was part of Mexico.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/2/08 - 11:52:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think if Texas was left to itself little good would come of it. I don't think we'd have enough political balance. I'd leave, even though I love it here.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 12/3/08 - 5:07:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
NO! We should always remain the UNITED STATES! That would be a sad day.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 12/3/08 - 5:26:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
hahah i love the no picture.
Vermont a country?
Its barely even a state!
(i live in new york, if i walked from my house about 3 and half miles i could see lake champlain and just go across to vermont, but i wouldn't want to. oh no, no way.)

I'm going to fix this, but just FYI, the word is SEceding.

To cede = to give up control (or to acquiesce, as in "cede a point in debate")

To SEcede = to withdraw from an organization.

And it's a ridiculous idea, and would never work on any level.

Once your in the Constitution your in for good. There's no leaving the family. (Theme from Godfather playing in the background)
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 1/2/09 - 11:09:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would be afraid if California ruled itself.
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 1/2/09 - 11:32:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ideologically, I have no problem with states seceding. In reality, however, I doesn't see it practical. If it would probably accept it and wait to see how it turned out before I would move, but I wouldn't be a proponent of it.
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 1/2/09 - 11:34:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure,I'd support it even.
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 1/2/09 - 11:55:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, not at all. It'd be run by a bunch of redneck inbreds.

Florida would turn into a ultra-Conservative white supremacist and Hispanic drug trade hellhole.

And creationism would be taught in schools.

ONe of the few times I'm not sure if I agree with Dr. Paul...

It’s Not Un-American To Talk About Secession
