32. The South isn't California.
The South was basically rural with a small ruling class and a lot of poor people and slaves. California or the whole West Coast is quite a different culture and still a fairly booming economy and urban culture. I think the reason we don't do it is that it would cause a lot of upheaval locally for awhile, being cut off from federal programs like Social Security that people rely on. On the other hand, all that tax money we pay to support population and GDP poor states, we could keep to start programs like this.
