Secede? Interesting idea. What do St Thomas or St John have that is better than St Croix? Bigger islands, less trash thrown about, less corruption, less violence, more miles of accessible beautiful beaches, more shopping/sightseeing opportunities, more incentives to attract business/industry, fewer blue FEMA roofs, better marketing? Consider setting forth an excellent track record and developing political/business savvy when competing with the other islands for money or whatever else you request from the states whether you aim to secede or not.
