Phi Beta Iota:  Anyone who talks secession is not a real player — the real players thrive on owning the government regardless of which of the two parties are in power.  Secession, notably of Vermont, Hawaii, Alaska, and Texas, is one answer (Puerto Rico and others are waiting in the wings to join the United STATES of America, a flag-neutral switch out is not inconceivable, especially is Long Isalnd and other internal secession movements are encouraged).  A better answer is to change the game so that every state and every region is represented, restoring the legitimacy of the government over all.  There is nothing wrong with America the Beautiful that cannot be fixed, and fixed quickly, by restoring the integrity of the electoral system and thence of the government.  Combine that with the Automated Payment Transaction Tax and The Chicago Plan Revisited, and you have a new era of prosperity and security for the USA.
