This was recorded before the presidential election. I suspect a secessionist movement in the US wouldn’t be done “legally” as much as it would simply happen, legal or not.
Can we secede our way to a more perfect union? Or are all 50 states simply stuck with each other? For decades, people on both sides of the aisle — from Texans to Californians — have levied threats to leave, and other states have threatened to form their own, new states. But just how realistic is the idea of secession? @Francesca Fiorentini asks: Is America simply too divided to stay together?
