Historical Context

The United States of America was originally intended to be a loose federation of independent states joined together for mutual benefit by a small federal government with limited power. The federal government's original purpose was to provide the States protection against strong foreign powers and to guarantee certain rights throughout the States. The Fed's power has grown immensely over the last 232 years. We now have large agencies ,such as the ATF, that can implement un-Constitutional and anti-American regulations without the authority of Congress. The Feds have the complete authority to fully reign and override any State's wishes. The founding fathers of this Republic would be absolutely livid to see how powerful the central federal government has become in their nation, and it wouldn't be too far-fetched to say that they would seek to distance themselves from it.

Shifting Culture 

It is becoming quite clear that those on the West Coast and North East are becoming polar opposites in culture to that of the rest of then nation. These Blue hotbeds have every right to pursue their Progressive and Socialistic agenda, but it is not right for them to force this agenda on the rest of the nation. These hotbeds are higher in population and are coming close to being able to impose their will on the rest of the nation. Gun control. Increased taxation for their massive welfare programs. Forcing Taxpayers to pay for tuition. The list goes on. The rest of the nation does NOT want these ideals forced upon them by these hotbeds that happen to have enough people in their megacities to control the ever-expanding Federal government. 

The Solution

Given what the previous two sections have discussed, the best solution to solve this problem within the United States is for each State to go it's separate way and implement it's own agenda without influence from that of polar opposite States. If States wish to join together for mutual benefit, they should have every right to pursue their interests and do so. Let the Red States go their own direction, and let the Blue States go their own direction as well. Each of them has their own separate and opposite agenda anyway. There is only one solution in which every side wins: Secession. Secession would be best for Alabama and it's people.
