Now, after the Presidential election last week, people from all 50 states (and GA and SC twice) have submitted petitions to be allowed to secede from the Union. The petition from Texas has garnered over 100,000 signatures. Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, and Georgia also have petitions which meet the official-response-threshold.
So, my question is: if the governments of these states put forward an actual secession request, should they be allowed to leave? And, if they are permitted to leave and they subsequently change their minds, would/should they be allowed to rejoin?
