    I'm sure their governor would support that idea.

    Most functional is a relative degree. California and Texas are obvious choices, but the problem would be that the U.S. would be active against it. Thus, I would say for all the egotism of Texas and California, those folks would be in a failed state.

    NY maybe if we're talking about the state, plenty of resources upstate. CA, no way, they'd collapse without the water and electricity from other states. Not sustainable.

    Oregon. Great beer, great food, great herbs. I even like the rain.

    We'd just trade our oranges and wine for water and electricity.

    Yeah that'll get you, well, no takers. Plus, it'll be interesting seeing you grow oranges without water and electricity.

    NY could pull it off, I think.

    That's why we'd use them to trade for water. Just try getting along without Cali wine. What are you going to drink, Coke? Pepsi? Bud Light?

    I agree, even without the city. Upstate is amazing with resources.
