This is a non-political post, just a yes or no poll. Thanks!

I often times entertain the thought, but if it came to a real life vote, I would say no. We are way too integrated, it would be a huge mess.

Hell no to Cal-Exit! Hell no to a West Coast exit! Hell no to the idea of Oregon and Washington ever wanting to be a separate country with California!

We are all part of the United States of America, period. No matter how much many in the conservative heartland states seemingly hate the West Coast, or no matter how much certain personalities living in major West Coast cities can't stomach the thought of ever setting foot anywhere east of the Rockies, we're still Americans.

And, many of us couldn't stomach the thought of living in California, Washington, or Oregon. Don't mind visiting but to live....a thousand times no.

So, are you saying that you’re fine with these three states leaving the US?

I think it's a ridiculous thought....they would never survive on their own.

Look at the state today. Look at the homeless. Look at how expensive it is. I don't believe its economy is big enough to handle all the issues facing that state. It's a poorly run state.

Have you considered that perhaps it is the US federal government which is the poorly run one and the impediment to the states being able to get things done?

Let's look at some basic facts:

In terms of population California, Washington and Oregon would have 51 million people. That's more than Spain but a bit fewer than UK, France or Italy.

The GDP of those three states is about $3,800,000 million which would place it just behind Germany for the 5th largest economy in the World. What industries would that new country be lacking? It would have the four most highly valued companies in the world to begin with with Facebook picking up 6th place.

I'm pretty sure that economically the Pacific states would do just fine on their own.
