Texans cannot be that stupid.
Also, Californians.

Agreed. They stand to lose WAY too much; their existence would be contingent on amicable, free, and generally unrestricted trade with the rest of the Union. That's an awful big risk to take for largely symbolic benefits of independence.

Some time ago i saw an article about the 4th country in North America: La republica del norte. People that lives in southern american states and northern Mexican states have refused to accept very well the authority of Washington and Mexico city and don't get identified with the rest of their respective countries. At the same time, the rest of Americans and Mexicans often see them as 'Americanized' Mexicans and 'Mexicanized' Americans. The experts expect that this new country will be created by the end of the century.

So Trump's dream will be real: US and Mexico won't be neighbors anymore

The ones who want to leave are actually stupid. The smart ones like myself know we won't leave. As much we complain about the U.S, we know we need them, but we also know the government needs TX.

Actually fun fact Texas can legally separate into 5 different states. We can screw up Congress so bad.

California will never leave. They need the states to take care of them or they will become broke. There is only so far California economy can take them. With all the drought they have over the years, their food/economy will far.

Which one; Texas or California?

I can tell as a Texan we are never leaving. However; Texas can separate into 5 different states. So Congress would be kind of mess up for a while.

I was expressing disbelief, primarily because I do not believe that the polls are accurate of Texans or Californians. Perhaps they targeted groups more likely to feel this way, including those that have no knowledge of Government matters.

An unified Korea doesn't seem to be something we'll see soon. Though, I do hope that the oppressed North Koreans who live there get their freedom and the idiots who run North Korea get what they deserve and receive their punishment in the end. As for the US, I wouldn't even care if California left the US. It'll be like taking out the trash out of what's been a part of the US. Next, we can get rid of New York. They probably wouldn't survive, but be taken over by another huge country or big nation like the UK.

Really 30% I think you better go find some numbers you are going to be in for a shock Red states not blue tend to pull down more money from the Fed. Now this is of course based on how much money they actually pay to the fed to begin with. California is about 18% not 30%. So yeah learn some fact before making statements that are easily proven false. here is a nice easy to understand map for you federal spending per state. http://www.pewtrusts.org/en/research-and-analysis/issue-briefs/2014/12/federal-spending-in-the-states More current numbers still has red states taking home the bacon. https://wallethub.com/edu/states-most-least-dependent-on-the-federal-government/2700/

Also the guy behind the Calexit was living in Russia of all places and recently gave up his US citizenship and became a Russian, and dropped the petition so it isn't going anywhere. No really red states take home more Fed money so cutting spending hurts them more I find it deliciously ironic that Republicans continue to punch themselves in the face like this.

Unified Korea won't happen anytime soon China won't sign off on that idea nor will Russia which is what it would take to make it happen.

You forgot the crowdsourced country Country McCountface. Really an unfortunate name, but people still haven't learned not to ask the internet to name things.

Fairly sure most Californians think Calexit or anything of that sort is a shitty idea.

I'd like an independent Hong Kong first, but I also know that that's never going to happen and is completely unsustainable.

Breakdown of North Korea would be horrible for South Korea and probably China too. They aren't, and probably won't, be prepared for the large influx of refugees if NK falls.
