Yes I believe that would be the default if the session was initiated on the
inside, but if it comes from outside on a particular interface which is not
the default route, why would the router then send the packet out another
interface? Should the device not route session-based traffic according to
where it originated?

Yes sir, this works, but when you change the static route to point
0.0.0.0/0to the next hop on the virtual router for the particular
interface (ISP2) it
starts going over the interface for ISP1 again. I also set
qualified-next-hop for ISP2 in the main routing table to no avail.

Yes sir, I have also gone to the extent of deactivating BGP and using only
