    Individuals who want to leave the US are welcome to do so.  

    What they don't get to do is to take an entire state with them.  Aside from the fact that we fought a war over this very issue, it's also the case that no state is going to have a population that unanimously agrees on leaving the US -- and why should those of us who want to stay be held hostage by the nutcases who want to seceded?

    And that's true whether you're talking about the Republic of Texas or about Ecotopia.
