This is one of the main reasons why I want to head north, besides being one election away from gun confication, our economy is going to tank. Once people really start defaulting on student loan debt taxes will have to go up to pay for it. We know we'll never see social security, medicare nor any of the other things those before us had, we had our future taken from us. That being said, I know damn well a lot of states, esp. those up north and the north east are sick of uncle sams shit, once the economy tanks I could see states like Alaska wanting to leave the union, they don't need the lower 48s. Any decenters they have would be treated like the loyalists were in the War for independence, shot. People are naive, they forget how the US has treated traitors, the civil war, the cold war, if you were pro/anti slave, commie whatever you got blackballed hard and had your life ruined if you were lucky.
Also, we'd have so much chaos down here they would not have enough boots to put on the ground, that's assuming the federal gov't could afford to pay troops. Containing that much civil unrest is expensive. Think what also scares me is someone like Russia moving in, promising to help states that want to split military aid in the form of firearms and ammo.
Kinda doubt it would get that bad but who knows, people are so pissed off now it's not funny. NJ just told the govt to fuck off, not one mag has been turned in. Cops aren't dumb, minute they start door to door gun confiscations their families will become big fat targets. That being said, that's the other reason why I want to leave, I don't feel like sticking around when the economy tanks and places have to cut back on things like the police and fire department, Stockton did that and it didn't end well. In there case I know it was police, not so sure about fire department but you get the idea....
