Via Josh Blackman, here’s a map (click to enlarge) of what America would look like if every secessionist movement that has ever popped up in history had succeeded:
The background on the creation of the map can be found here.
I wish they all could be Ronald Reagan girls…
Just doesn’t work.
(apologies to Brian Wilson and Crew)
Doesn’t look too bad – it would go a long way to resolve all the whining about the Senate.
Just a correction: Andrew Shears got the proposed new states and then he created several of his own. These are not all really proposed new states.
@Andre Kenji: I didn’t know that, but “Red Wisconsin” and “Blue Wisconsin” caused me to wonder.
@Just ‘nutha’ ig’rant cracker: Red and Blue Wisconsin are cheeses. They go great with crackers. Folks make little French flags out of them.
Iowa, Hawaii, and South Carolina didn’t want to play, I guess.
Here in California, up in the north in an area that shares the border with Oregon, there has been recent renewed whining by advocates of a secession to form a state, “Jefferson.”
These people, like their Red State brethren, pay far less money in taxes than they receive in program benefits to their region. So, yes, I’m willing to let them go – as an independent republic, but not as just another crappy little under-populated state with undue influence in Washington.
There is a pretty active secessionist movement in Hawaii, but they want to be their own nation, not just a separate state within the union.
Various global giants, including the players operating in the region, have
also been discussed in the report. Above Right:
