Get rid of California, for a start. Constitutional amendment: A state may withdraw from the United States of America by election of its' citizens of 60% vote or greater. Then applying to the house of representatives for withdrawal and achieving a 60% or greater vote of other states. Each state is allocated one vote for this purpose. A majority of the delegates of the state must reach a consensus and that is the vote cast. A delegate tie is to be decided by the Governor of the state.

I would add:

If a State votes to withdraw from the US, the State must then do a County by County poll. Any County which wish to remain with the US would be allowed to seperate from the state and become part of the nearest adjanct state.

Wouldn't be much left of the California which sepreated.

Part 2:
A state can be expelled from the United States of America by a vote in the House then Senate of 60% or greater of the other states. A majority of the delegates of each state must reach a consensus and that is the vote cast. A delegate tie is to be decided by the Governor of the state.

As the Golden State continues to transition into Greece-on-the-Pacific, this election year should have been an opportunity for its citizens to try to stop the madness. But it hasn’t worked out that way. Instead, this year Californians have embraced the model of Kevin Bacon in Animal House, figuratively assuming the position and repeating “Thank you, sir, may I have another?”

At the top of the ticket, Barack Obama is pummeling Mitt Romney by about 16 points in the polls, but that doesn’t mean he is ignoring the state. He’s using it like Charlie Sheen uses escorts. Every few weeks...
