All of this is very interesting for the political world. It will probably have little effect otherwise but it does qualify as a disturbed and unhappy group of voters. I sure hope that their ideas and actions spread...
Ohio has been added...
Secession is an American and especially a Texas ideal:
What it will take to get the ball rolling in Texas is pressure by a few business bigwigs on Gov Perry.
The ISA can create a weak federation to handle defense and foreign affairs. This Congress can meet twice a year for one month each, once on budget and once on other matters.
They don’t need their own capital, the capital will revolve annual at state capitals.
The time has come to separate the wheat from the chaff.
Good deal, I’m all for it. What else can we do to let that Chicago gangster Communist he isn’t going to have an easy ride. Congress isn’t going to fight for us, its left up to us. We need to make a statement loud and clear. The Comrade will probably just laugh at it...let him laugh.
Should we petition to create a Southern Illinois independent state?
Back in the 1980’s I read a series of novels by William Johnstone about “Tri-States”. This was a constitutional government established in western Montana, northern Idaho, and eastern Washington lead by the charismatic Ben Raines.
I cannot recall what the event was that lead to the formation of Tri-states but they were always fighting the “Federal forces” from Washington, DC.
I’m ready. The election was stolen by a marxist muslim and his gang on November 6th. Are we going to continue with business as usual? We won’t if we want to survive.
CWII a-brewing, perhaps?
If over half the population wants a Marxist government, maybe it is time to split into two nations.
Obama responds to the twenty or so states demanding secession.
What we may need to do now is start a procession from Idaho, down through Wyoming, Arizona and Texas , and make a clean sweep to the Atlantic.
I just have one question: Can we deport the bleeding heart libs?
This is stupid. Most of us were here mocking Democrats who were threatening riots if Romney won. Now we have people saying we need to sucede from the Union since Obama won?!?! We need to grow up and work to find better candidates. This was hardly a mandate, We held serve solidly in the house so people realize they don’t want a banana republic. Are we in trouble with four more years of Obama? Yes, but we need to take advantage of the coming two bad years to win back the Senate and explode our majority in House.
New york? Really? d:^/
The Texas petition has exceeded 25,000 signatures and so will receive an official response from the White House.
Todays this is seen as a nutty gadfly joke. But i predict it’s a fight in reality in 20 years. The trend all around the world is breakups. USSR, Balkans, etc. It’s been nonstop for the last 20 years.
When the East Coast Ivy establishment continually ignores and belittles the red states, when they “rule” as an elite of our “betters”, then they are rife with corruption and dishonesty, when they aggressively use laws and regulations to attack red state industries,,,, a separation is in the cards.
I want out.
I don’t want to be a part of this disaster. :(
