Hey Larry, where are you going to put all of the welfare children. Your blue territory amounts to several large cities...I guess you better get used to living amonst the everyday folk and having limits on the number of children you can have...your little country has no where to grow.

People like Larry O'Ded are precisely the reason that (a) liberals don't want americans to have guns and (b) the founding fathers new nuts like this will always exist and the only way to keep them to words is to have an armed militia made up of joe America

Anyone else taking note of all the newbies in the last week before the election to this DTG that seem to be posting a common message or is it just the smell of troll that has me wondering what the new democrat disinformational diversion deal is ?

Idiots only know one song and they can't even carry a tune.

They won't secede. They are too afraid they'll have to move away. LOL! And give up their chicken farms.

Example:

End the farm subsidies, and we'll see what happens

Most farm subsidies are not NOT grow food in order to control prices.

No problemo Lawrence. We here in Red Montana have 200 Minutemen III's with 3 MIRVs each to use as a bargaining chip to "coerce" the Girly Boys from the blue states to do our bidding.

Amazes me that MSNBC could keep giving him air time. Of course, I think MSNBC is still devoting 90% of their air time to O'Reilly's dueling lawsuits. :)

Why do O'Donnell and his ilk continue to support candidates who advocate even more welfare programs and more socialism?

I'm sure the Red states would be glad to let the Blue states keep their welfare money--and keep their regulations, "values" and meddling to themselves as well.

Next time let the Dems run a candidate who advocates ending the Federal Welfare State. He'd probably get more support in the Red states than Kerry did.

It is one thing to have supported Kerry and to be a Dim, but O'Donnell has lost it on TV on more than one instance recently. He was screaming, and I literally mean screaming, at the SBVT rep on MSNBC one evening.

As an aside, shouting down the conservative seemed to be a game plan for Dims during the campaign season. About 80-90% of the "shout-downs" I witnessed on TV during the campaign were Dims shouting down conservatives. Stupid and discourteous!

I saw that. It was a Friday night and I was watching it while on a weekend holiday at a resort sipping a Sam Adams (from the Boston Brewing Co. Oh the irony!).

He was making a complete fool of himself, screaming "Liar, Liar!" repeatedly while Pat Buchanan was pleading with him to let the SBVT get a word in edge wise.

Anyway, I just love the fact that many socialist liberals who are always advocating more welfare and wealth redistribution are now whining that the Red States are "Welfare States" and now are talking secession to avoid giving welfare to people who don't walk in lock step with their political views.

I guess you have to be a liberal and vote Democratic to qualify for welfare in their view.

I say let them keep their welfare and their government interference in people's daily lives as well. And I'll bet most "Red Staters" would agree with that.

Just had an alarming thought: What if all of the enlightened, super-productive and altruistic Blue-State progressives simply decide that enough is enough.

"We're not knocking ourselves out anymore to support these Red State freeloaders."

Arrrrggggghhhh!!!

Actually these are TRUE hard facts, with non-partisan spin on welfare states and the majority on welfare:
