Well technically the US states can leave whenever, that was the idea anyways it will fall eventually just like Rome, they all do.
Give us the UP back.
Every American county should be independent
Like Rome? Hordes of barbarians will invade Washington DC and crown themselves King of America?
I was very probably thinking of something completely different :)
How do you figure? The last time states tried to leave the Union 600,000 soldiers died forcing them back in, a little thing called the War Between the States.
Personally I think it will be the second civil war, we will have so many factions that the us may just shatter.
Another possibility is an apocalyptic event where we have to rise from the ashes and build something new.
I made an NS scenario like this where WWI didnt end and Europe became a wasteland.
"War Between the States" is getting rather close to "The War of Northern Aggression" when it comes to downplaying the South's responsibility or culpability in regards to the American Civil War
yeah I was going to say anything but Civil War/American Civil War is usually a dog whistle
How is that a dog whistle?
You can call it the War Between the States, War of Northern Aggression, War for Southern Independence, but at no time except in Missouri and Kansas was it a Civil War. A Civil War is when two sides are fighting to control one nation, at no time did the South want to replace the United States, they just wanted their independence and to peacefully form their own separate country. Kinda like the 13 Colonies did in 1776.
Thanks for your link to "A Welcome and Introduction Dispatch for New Nations"
Nice to see that there are regions that still play on the RMB.
Thanks for letting me visit.
It is now time for me to wander on.
Indeed! Amazing how much you differ in character from the Settling Venusdownials ^^
The term can be used for any internal war, whatever the reason.
Other terms have largely been 20th century inventions by lost causers
Also Kentucky and Maryland, and most everywhere else. It's a friggin' civil war.
Actually the term “Civil War” didn’t come about to the 1870’s, writers and people of the time called it the Great Rebellion or War of Secession. No matter what you call it, who started it, or even why, it did establish once and forever that states cannot leave the United States.
Almost, it took a decade for it to become universally accepted, but it was used from the start of the conflict. It wouldn't be until the 50s and 60s during the Civil Rights Movement when there would be a major push to rename it from some southern groups
When do we carve out Mississippi and float it off into the Gulf as an independent country?
It's, by many different measures, the worst state in the union, so I think in the interest of the other 49 we should take this opportunity to bolster our averages
