Default Should the US just split into two different countries?

Questions spawned from an interesting conversation I had this morning with a couple of my old professors.

"We're like a married couple that hates each other, is deep in debt, and has 3 small kids."

Not really possible, but fun to debate.

Where would the dividing line go, down the Mississippi river so the border would be Arkansas and Tennessee?

DC, CA, and NY can be their own country. Leave the PNW alone

I think they would both need some of the mid-west's farmland. I was thinking about a dividing line splitting the states west of the Mississippi in half. Assuming liberals would take the west coast and conservatives would take the east coast, Texas would likely just form it's own separate country anyway

Good luck with that, most of the central and Midwest are hardcore conservative

Split back into the union and confederacy, we'd all be better off with the south's dead weight cut from our nation like a rotting tumor.

California = 9th largest GDP in the world.

Is that enough to form a military and intelligence community?

Considering it's a bunch of brainless liberal college kids, hippies, homeless people, movie stars, wannabe-actors/actresses, etc you're probably pretty close to the level of intelligence in Washington now.

"The United States of New England" has a nice ring to it.

Doesn't something have to be worth something in order to sell it?

At this point I'm sure Japan would seize it. They pretty much own it anyway. When I lived there and was a bike messenger there were entire office buildings I would deliver to where it was difficult finding anyone who spoke English.

Sell Alaska to Canada? The physical division would be the toughest thing to do.
