I live in California and we have the eighth largest economy in the world. If we, Texas, and a small handful of the other more productive states seceded, what would happen to the US? What would it be like for a less productive state like North Dakota?
All I have to say is that many states depend on food and other necessities from the other states. Would these less productive states be able to survive?
It'll never happen.......
Less productive state like North Dakota?
You may want to re evaluate that one.
North Dakota is one of only two states not running in the red.
California is bankrupt (financially and morally)
North Dakota is currently producing oil hand over fist and has more jobs than people to fill them.
Go ahead and gather up the 8 larger states and figure out how to keep paying the illegal immigrants welfare benefits.
We in North Dakota are fine and wont object.
