Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

You may well be right. On the other hand, and again using CA as an example, LA is going to die without fresh water from the Colorado River Basin. So you need at least AZ to be in on the game, unless you plan on only seceding with the Northern half of the state. And the landlocked states are going to be massively fucked if they get cut off from global commerce, so they will have to remain on at least speaking terms with the states that control the arterial railroads and/or navigable rivers between them and the nearest blue water port.
