Just Can't Stop Talkin' `Bout Secesh!

Unhappy people around the world and in the United States just can't stop talking about secession. As long as they keep providing interesting maps and illustrations, I'll keep covering them here.

Two from last month:

What would California look like broken in three? Or a Republic of New England? With the federal government reaching for ever more power, redrawing the map is enticing, says Paul Starobin.
"Divided We Stand", by Paul Starobin, Wall Street Journal.

In the American end times, our government will take one of two forms. One possibility is that federalism will give way to an all-powerful central government... The other option is decentralization—in the absence of a unifying national interest, the United States of America will fragment and be supplanted by regional governance.
"Who's most likely to secede?" by Josh Levin, Slate.

I'd like to see a state like Texas or Georgia succeed just to watch their economy completely crumble to pieces.

I'm surprised that New York City isn't its own country on the first map.

Patrick: Interesting proposals for New England Sovereignty... but until you start posting interesting MAPS you'll never get anywhere... :-)
