    I’ve been looking at that for a few months now, as background for a pet project. I’ve come up with twelve (debatably, thirteen): -Alaska. This would potentially be vulnerable to invasion without the threat of US reprisal, but its natural resources must be weighed against its hostile terrain. I believe that ultimately it would remain free despite its proximity to both Canada and Russia. Capital: Juneau. -Appalachia: this would include parts of New York, Pennsylvania, all of West Virginia, Western Maryland and Virginia, Eastern Kentucky and Tennessee, Western North Carolina, and relatively small portions of South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama. Chief uniting factor would be the Appalachian Mountains, and the mindset that goes with being a resident of said mountains. Appalachia would likely become a very loose coalition of states, similar to pre-Constitution America. Capital: Pittsburgh. -Cascadia. This would be the region of the same name: Washington, Oregon, northern California. Likely a republic. Capital: Seattle. -New England. Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island. Likely a direct democracy. Capital: Boston. -Atlantic Seaboard. Most similar in structure to the current government, due to the presence of Washington DC inside its borders. New York City and surrounding area, New Jersey, part of Pennsylvania, Delaware, eastern Maryland, and eastern Virginia. Probably would have the most powerful and cohesive post-breakup military despite relatively small size, due to being seen as the true remnant of the US as well as its possession of the Pentagon, and of the Hampton Roads area which represents the largest military area in the world. Capital: Washington, DC. -Florida. Not the entire state; this would just be the Peninsula. Capital: Miami. -Southern Federation. Eastern North Carolina; most of South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama; the Florida Panhandle which culturally identifies more closely to Alabama than to the rest of its own state; Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas; and western Tennessee. Possibly portions of Texas near the Louisiana border, but highly unlikely. Texas does not lightly relinquish its territory, and the South would not be so foolish as to try taking it by force. Capital: Birmingham. -the Midwest. Western Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan. Capital: Milwaukee. -the Plains. A misnomer of sorts. Nebraska, North and South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho. Capital: Buffalo. -The Southwest. Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona. Strong possibility of annexing desert portions of California such as Death Valley. Capital: Dallas. -Southern California. Who knows what government SoCal would take? Capital: Los Angeles. -Hawaii. Government: constitutional monarchy. Capital: Honolulu. –The thirteenth one, which doesn’t truly count, would be Vermont. The breakup of the US would possibly be initiated by this state. If not, it would certainly be among the first few states to break off. Vermont has one extremely valuable resource in addition to a military academy and an excellent dairy industry: Ben and Jerry’s. For this alone, I do not believe Vermont could long hold out against a Canadian invasion. They might even join willingly. Thus, I do not count Vermont among the breakaway countries.

    The USA will surely collapse because of what all the republicans are doing to it.

    After Obama succeeds in destroying our economy and turning us all into homeless starving beggars, and his opponents revolt against the government, he will impose martial law and confine us all in the REX84 concentration camps and exterminate us. Then he will consolidate all states into one communist state like the USSR. The extermination of his opposition will be entirely consistent with the establishment of the Stalinist state there. Communism always begins with the brutal extermination of all opposition. To accomplish his pogrom, Obama will pretend that opening the REX84 facilities as “emergency indigent housing” is a humanitarian program, just like the Kibera project that is happening right now in Kenya. Did you hear that Obama’s family is from Kenya? Do you think Obama knows about the Kibera project? But once he has us all confined in the REX84 concentration camps, we will be at his mercy. He will cut off food, water, and medical care. We will die in the American Holocaust, and then the certain select groups of Obama’s supporters will become the new master race.

    THe thought HAS crossed my mind. But, if there IS a World War 3, I don’t think any of ours will be around to worry about it! On the brighter side, If and when Government bankrupts us with their wasteful spending, their borrowing, it is conceivable parts of the United States may pass into foreign hands, IF it hasn’t already!! I would like to see what collateral the Government has used to cover their borrowing! And how long are these loans for!! It might be a good idea to start thinking WHERE in this country you would REALLY like to live in!! Depending WHO is going to be the BOSS!! You might land up becoming a Russian, Chinese or wharever citizen!! LOL! Can you imagine 600 or more Americans all trying to live in one little State!!
