yes, the county level is not practical. But it is very unfair what downstate NY does to upstate. Western NY has no chance to develop its economy because of the level of taxation and social programs put in place by downstate voters.
As far as disappointing those who want the US to stay the way it is, do such people also want Canada and Mexico to be incorporated as an even bigger country? Are they disappointed that the UN does not have more authority? And if states and regions of the US could gain autonomy, then regions like the NorthEast could petition to become a part of Eastern Canada. That would be a lot of territory.
