10. Southern Mississippi has talked about
separating for years. We're culturally more like southern Louisiana than we are the rest of Mississippi, although I don't think most people here would want to be part of Louisiana either. The separitists generally advocate the formation of a completely new state. Many down here feel that the amount of power we have in the legislature is way out of proportion to the amount of tax money we send to Jackson.
