In another thread we’ve been talking about secession in the abstract. But I’m wondering what people’s opinions are on a personal basis.
Let’s say that a constitutional amendment has made it legal for a state to secede. So the United States will not be sending in troops. But states that secede will obviously become foreign countries, presumedly with decent relations with the USA - let’s say the equivalent of Canada or Mexico; you can cross the border and visit fairly relatively freely.
Now let’s say, for the sake of argument, that only one state decides to use this option - your state. The vote was held and the majority decided to secede and form their own country. It’s a done deal. But there’s a one year grace period where people can leave the state and keep their American citizenship.
So here’s the survey:
1 - What state do you live in?
2 - Would you have voted to stay in the United States or secede?
3 - Would you stay and become a citizen of your new country or relocate to the US and stay an American citizen?
4 - If you relocated, what state would you move to?
5 - What factors would affect your decision?
