    Which State Would Make the Best Country?

    Four states have been former republics. Several have sporadic or persistent secession movements.

    Which state, if it left the US, would make the most functional new country?

    As much as I may not like it, you don't mess with Texas.

    At this point in time any state to leave the US would hurt unless the separation were very amicable.

    I would not get mad if Texas left. I dont think they realize they are a state now.

    California, despite the nonsense in Sacramento. It's still less than the nonsense from Washington.

    California could be relatively self-sufficient, if need be. Texas could work, too.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I would wager Texas and California have the various factors needed to be able to reliably survive a post secession period assuming the U.S. wasn't actively attempting to thwart it.
