Going from New York to Arizona would be like going to a different country. Same could be said for states like Idaho, Kansas (kind of already is, IMO), etc.
Nah, I seriously doubt it.
#1 No one, not even the Tea Party want EVERYTHING kicked back... just all the stuff not covered by the Constitution. You know, that pesky document that we used to use as a guide... I have no problem with changing things... but that requires Amendments... when did it become ok to just ignore the process?
#2 when was the last time you were in Europe... it's not as different country to country as it once was.
#3 you are underselling the MASSIVE influence of pop culture and mass media. Regionalization is dying out regardless... at MOST you simply slow down the process some.
