    I don't think this is "new" in a way, but it's the newest one. Usually we don't hear much about things like this. I'm pretty sure this was the alt right conservatives idea and not everyone is behind this.

    Talk about California becoming a completely Independent country came up after Trump´s election.
    At least, that´s the first I heard of...

    I'd heard of it years ago, due to water issues.

    Yeah, and Quebec has been trying to secede from Canada since before I was born. They put it on the ballot every once in a while and go on a crying jag when it doesn't fly.

    I think Washington state talks about splitting east and west at times too.

    They've been talking about splitting IL for years too. People are upset because what Cook County wants, the rest of IL gets. Highly unlikely anyone is splitting or going anywhere though.

    Not just that though. Some of the issue is that some laws are much stricter because of the poverty and high criminal rate up in Cook. Why should the masses be punished when the majority of the issue Is seen in that county? Many, many of us would rather Chicago/Cook just go do it's own thing.
