I don't blame them but I would be willing to guess a lot of state aid like meidcaide and welfare go to the U.P.

It was the same way for the 7 years I was up there also. Less the name, it pretty much is a different state anyway.

When I lived up there in late 70s it was a hot topic, and work was underway for "Superior".

When I was in OR last year, there's a serious push for a new country of "Cascadia" that would take parts of CA, OR, WA, WY, and British Columbia and form a new country. Their thought is that (with Seattle, Redmond, Vancouver, Portland, etc...) they'd have enough economic clout to make it sustainable. While it's a pipe dream, it's still a cool idea.

Would they get their own Professional Football Team that doesn't suck ass, or gain automatic association with the Packers?

If the Feds allow the UP to secede then they have to give Toledo back to Michigan.

I'd be willing to bet that more welfare money goes to the city of Detroit than the entire UP.

Even with everyone leaving, there's still more people in Detroit than the entire UP.

Man, if the U.P. was to secede today, my tuition rates would go up. lol

Although, I would probably just change my state of residence. I like it up here better.
