I think that everybody inside the black line should secede from the United States.

That way, the Progressives and Conservatives won't screw up each other's America as much.

If successful, the outcome of such a secession could not be foretold with 100% accuracy. The secession could ultimately be either good or bad.
However, such a secession would be extremely difficult to achieve. It's futile to attempt to rebel against a Government that is far better equipped than you are and will soon be able to read minds, making irregular warfare virtually impossible.
It cannot be done through legal means, as most Americans are opposed to secession and even if a sizable Pro-Secession voting block was rallied, the Federal Government would not allow such a secession. It would be struck down as unconstitutional in the Supreme Court.
This is, at best, a dream. It will not come to pass, and attempting to bring about the impossible may have dire consequences. It's best to stop contemplating or talking about secession.

That's where I tested the brush size. I forgot to reverse it before I saved the file.

Unless you're taking a sizable chunk of the government with you, which those states would be doing.

Question: What would drive the Bible Belt to secede from the USA? We need an issue as divisive as slavery.

... and even if a sizable Pro-Secession voting block was rallied, the Federal Government would not allow such a secession. It would be struck down as unconstitutional in the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court would have no jurisdiction if they seceded.

I disagree. The worst that can happen is Civil War 2, and I don't see that happening when both sides have nuclear weapons.
