Secessionists, tsk, tsk, tsk. Secession is their only hope. Their country is changing, they hate it, and they can't go anyplace else.
They can't emigrate; most secessionists won't qualify for citizenship to any other industrialized nations because of a lack of desirable skills or education.
If they do have the skills and/or education to be desirable enough to gain citizenship visas to any other industrialized nation, they wouldn't want to emigrate there because they all have higher tax rates and socialized medicine.
That leaves the 3rd World, where their lily-white #$%$ would be in the minority.
