Could the Western States Pact Become a New Country?

Here we are again, in 2020.

This is not an act of secession. But it sure feels like one.

How might this Western States Pact play out?

Let it be stated, for the record, states and territories don’t technically have rights to secede.

At least, any logical leadership would turn this proposal down, for a variety of reasons.

However, for this thought experiment, I’m going to go with the fact that we clearly are not in a normal time nor do we have logical calm leadership.

I think that any civil war that could possibly start over this secession would be over the food supply.

This, in turn, might be the start of a second civil war.

No one knows how all of these will truly play out.

But consider this.
