Succession or States Rights

This is something that I have feared for a long time. Once a government looses it's ability to have income, and it's ability to borrow money, what happens when a country is divided.

Could we "head it off at the pass" by going to stronger states, and weaker federal government, and allow citizens to move to states that appeal more to them?

Just crazy, 100 years down the road thinking here.....

Most of the South would never really go with that, as it would be economic suicide.

Despite our nation's economic issues it is still the strongest and most robust economy in the world.

Southern states take a shitload of federal dollars to avoid the economic collapse time and time again.

Some states like Texas and maybe NC would probably do OK.

The Mississippi's and Alabama's and South Carolina's of the world would fold like a cheap tent.

Why would the North not go for it?

I'm not sure why they would, but economically it would actually be viable.

I do not want this to happen folks, but I do think it's high time to get some power back to the states. Let the people have some voice again.

You mean like if States had the power bring about laws that are against Federal laws?
