10 States We Won't Miss If They Secede

Would you notice if these states weren't part of the U.S. anymore?
Some people are so peeved that President Barack Obama has been reelected they don't even want to be a part of this country anymore. No, we didn't say that they want to leave the country, we said they don't want be part of it any longer.
What began as a trickle of a few citizens in a handful of states immediately following Nov. 6's election results has grown to more than 700,000 citizens combined from all 50 states using the White House's "We the People" website to file a petition for their state to secede from the Union. States need a minimum of 25,000 signatures to to be considered for a response from the White House and so far Texas and Louisiana have met the requirements.
With the Civil War of 150 years ago basically settling the matter of whether states may secede, here are some states we probably wouldn't miss if they were to hit the road.
What state wouldn't you miss if it were to secede? Tell us in the Comments.

What does it mean when an insult like the word "bamma" is derived from the name of your state? The "Heart of Dixie" wears the name with pride as it's made the news for everything from voting not to remove racist language from its state constitution to coming up with an immigration law more racist than Arizona's SB 1070. You didn't think that was possible did you?
This state is always guaranteed to take up some prime real estate on any "worst state in America list." It's been voted both the worst place for women to live and the poorest state in America. On top of that, the recent demonstration at the University of Mississippi after President Obama was re-elected doesn't do much to help its already racist image.
