Not a bad idea there's just one problem. You can't get people to put down their phones for 30 minutes how would you ever organize something on this scale?

I’m no expert, but there are supposed to be procedures on the books for Americans that wish to “expatriate” from the United States (defined as District of Columbia and it’s Territories; Guam, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico etc) and repatriate to the state they were born, making them an American National, not a US Citizen, U.S. Citizen, or citizen of the United States (yes all of those are different entities with different ownership).

It’s still probably unlikely; but I suppose everyone could technically abandon United States (DC) and United States of America (UK) while never physically leaving their couch or setting down their cell phone.

That's interesting, hopefully it doesn't fall into the sovereign citizen fiasco.

The doomsday preppers don't look so bad now.
