    Texas without a doubt. The only state we have that could come cloes self sustaining itself.

    What do you mean "sustaining itself?"

    I think either California or Texas would fair the best at independence, but I'd personally much rather live in California. The geographic diversity in CA is much more appealing to me.

    I think that Hawaii would also make for a relatively self sustaining nation, not a heavy hitter like CA or TX, but probably pretty peaceful and interesting.

    Energy refining and re-refining. Better workforce, economy, low cost of living. Sustainable.

    I would love it if we left.

    Lower 48, I would say Texas. Alaska and Hawaii would have no problem making it on their own and the people of both states probably would be better off.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    and anyone born there would not be qualified to be president of the US. The birthers would be vindicated!

    In this economy Texas is the only state I believe could make it. I would like to think Cali could do it but with the way things are going out there it is doubtful at best.

    California, Texas, and New York would be the most likely to succeed at seceding. All are coastal giving easy access to trade with other countries, and all have GDPs that would put them in the top 15 countries in the world (with California being in the top 10).

    Is Texas planning on breaking off and drifting into space in addition to leaving the country?
