We kind of had this for a long time in U.S. History. That's what the west and frontier culture were. Going west was an individual act of secession into what was a largely anarchic society in the old west.
Of course, that only works when there is a vast expanse of unclaimed land. (Please no "but what about the Indians?") replies.
We might see this again if and when we reach the age of safe, economical space exploration
This gives a little more insight.
I agree 100% after watching this that this was a brief involuntary seizure (the first second or so) followed by her catlike public image preservation reflexes kicking in and turning it into a joke.

"They sell us the president the same way they sell us our clothes and our cars. They sell us every thing from youth to religion the same time they sell us our wars.
