Here in the U.S. can a state choose no longer to be a state? If so, would that de-state, so to speak, turn into being an extension of D.C.? Or would
any of the states close by get to make the former state become an extension of their state in all or in portion?
In what ways can a state fail or stop being a state?
Who represents the state?...Can they oppose allowing the state to be a state?...Can they shut down the state government?
Also, can a state seperate itself from the U.S.?...What prevents that from happening if anything?
