We all have to move to Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, and secede from the Union and start building a new country from scratch. I wonder what sort of international support we could could get for that.

Key West doesn't have the huevos to actually secede, unless Jimmy Buffet funds their Slack single-handedly. I think he'd turn into a flaming racist when the ungovernable shores of the Keys turn it into a haven for drugs and crime.
But I think AriTexiMex would be a great country with good food, great hunting and fishing, offshore drilling, cotton, agriculture, cattle and tourism. And a space program. We could devise a way to finish off the San Andreas Fault and send California out to sea, thereby gaining passage to the East for trade with Taiwan and Singapore and Vietnam.
The only setback would be the Musica Norteña, but I think it would fairly easy to outlaw such an offense to the ears.
Like you have a better plan.
