Many of you are aware that in a close election, many states on the losing end of the election band together in a unified protest in an effort to force a response from the new administration.

This election has been no exception with an astonishing 20 states petitioning to secede from the Union.  they did it in 2008 and are doing it again.
Texas with its can do attitude was the first to reach the 25,000 signatures needed to submit the required secession documentation to the White House for a response.  There are also petitions from Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Now we all know you stand a better chance of winning the lottery after surviving a lightning strike than having the White house grant succession, BUT WHAT IF?  What if you could flee to a State where the car enthusiast ruled?  An automotive utopia?

Unlimited speed limits, no EPA Mileage standards, and the wild notion of the creation of a driver centric government that puts you in power.

We have to start somewhere, so what state would you choose to be the nucleus of this new nation? 

Texas, where wide open spaces prevail and possibility of the first North American Autobahn?  Maybe California where the car culture has already been established and scenic highways abound. Or you can get a little wild and choose  Michigan, arguably the hub of the automotive world? 

Play with this a bit and don't get bogged down in the logistics, just the dream.  Would the UAW survive?  Would you ban mini vans, and require no more than 2 doors on any proper sports car? The imagination is yours, run with it.

If You Could Secede From The Union, Where Would You Base Your Driver Centric Utopia?
