  • DC v. Heller - Montana prepares to secede

    Secy of State Brad Johnson of Montana delivered a letter to the Washington Times about possible outcomes of the Heller decision. Second Amendment an individual right The U.S. Supreme Court will soon decide D.C. v. Heller, the first case in more than 60 years in which the court will confront the meaning of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Although Heller is about the constitutionality of the D.C. handgun ban, the court's decision will have an impact far beyond the District ("Promises breached," Op-Ed, Thursday). The court must decide in Heller whether the Second Amendment secures a right for...
  • California to Secede From Union

    11/13/2005 10:35:27 PM PST · by cyborg · 173 replies · 4,102+ views
    Sacramento—In a bold, yet unexpected move, California has decided to dissolve all ties with the United States of America. It is reported, that on Tuesday, November 15, 2005, the California legislature will vote to secede from the Union. The vote comes in an answer to the agonizing defeat of Governor Schwarzenegger’s propositions at the voting booths. The voters have made it clear that they don’t want any change in California. They have demonstrated to Governor Schwarzenegger that they want to leave things alone, keep the status quo. “I’m glad the propositions went down,” stated Autumn Keely, a registered Democrat. “I’m...

    We conservatives certainly missed a great opportunity back in November just after the election. Along with the usual liberal excuse-fest and tone-deaf mystification over values voters came something entirely new this year – talk of secession. Yes, the “bitterly divided” nation had elected the president in a noticeably geographical pattern and the coastal elites were so angry with their landlocked brethren as to momentarily consider the idea of leaving the Union. Perhaps they’d forgotten that this had been tried before? Now waging war over the abolition of slavery surely trumps waging war to redefine marriage, but this notion of seceding...

    Oh, dear. This may be considerably more serious than we thought. Four years ago 36 days of uncertainty in Florida transformed the Gore-Lieberman team into the Sore-Loserman ticket, but the anger if not the rancor soon subsided. Alec Baldwin threatened to move to France but never did and eventually denied ever promising to leave. He may still be hanging about an airport
  • Lawrence O'Donnell calls Red states"welfare" states; urges Blue states to secede

    Sorry about the vanity, but this is a must read for conservatives. On the McLaughlin Group this weekend, Lawrence O’Donnell actually stated that the Red states were “welfare” and that the Blue states paid for the Red states. He further urged the Blue states to secede from the Red states. And he was quite serious. In the past few weeks O’Donnell has had foaming-at-the-mouth mental breakdowns, especially on MSNBC, but when he made his comments on the McLaughlin Group, he was quite calm and collected. First, are these the people to whom Bush is “required” to reach out to? Second,...

    Slightly humorous (well, to conservatives, anyway) site born of post-election radical left bitterness. This site is called "US out of San Francisco." It lists a petition site seeking to allow CA or just SF, I'm not too clear, to secede. Judging by the posts to this site, a lot of people are more than willing to sign the "petition" and let the left coast go on it's own...

    Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede from the Union (please refer to the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of 1848). We Texans love y'all, but we'll have to take action if Kerry wins as president over Bush. We'll miss you too. Texas has given all those complainers plenty of time to get used to the results. After seeing the whiners along the campaign route, the folks from Texas are considering taking matters into our own hands. Here is our solution: #1: Let John Kerry become President of the United tates. (all 49 states.) #2:...

    Six New England states are usurping the federal treaty power in the name of addressing climate change. Neither the President nor the Congress has been willing to defend their constitutionally delegated powers from this usurpation. The result is bad policy and bad precedent. The treaty power belongs to the federal executive and legislative branches. Article 1, section 10 states "No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance or Confederation… No State shall, without the Consent of Congress…enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power…" In August 2001 six New England governors signed an...
