    Has anybody commenting on this bothered to notice that these are online petitions, they have no legal standing whatsoever and are nothing more than mental masturbation for people with a Truthmatters/Thanatos IQ?

    This secession thing didn't work 150 years ago when the states were in a far better position to pull it off and had several months to prepare before hostilities began.

    I am an ardent secessionist, but not the way most people think of when they hear the term. I fully and truly believe in self determination for anybody and everybody, Quebec, Vermont, Gaza, Chechnya, Tibet. Texas. More power to them.

    That said, ya gotta be realistic. There is no way the national government pats anybody on the back and wishes them luck. Hell, it takes an act of God to renounce citizenship these days. Further, state governments are peopled by politicians wedded to the notion of their place at the trough and all entertain notions of moving up to an office in D.C. someday. Ain't happening, and nobody in a position to make it happen is seriously going to suggest it.

    Just sayin...

    Assuming for a moment that the parting was amicable.
    The currency thing is fairly easy, a number of countries de facto currency is US. The Army part would depend on which state is being discussed. Any of the states on the northern border, from Idaho to Vermont would have no need, as there is not a neighboring belligerent government to worry about.

    Southern border states and those with seaports would have security concerns.

    I wouldn't be so complacent about Canada. After all, they have plenty of snowballs, hockey sticks, Molson Beer and Back Bacon at their disposal that they could use against us.

    Anyone remember the movie "Canadian Bacon"? It went to show that a war with Canada would be an absolute farce. I did love Alan Alda's line (playing the part of the President): "Surrender pronto...or we'll level Toronto!"

    I will try to stop them. I live in Texas. 40% of us Texans won't stand for it.

    Don't take it seriously, it isn't actually anything that is happening. It carries as much actual political/real world weight as an anonymous internet board thread.

    Some of the slaves did happen to get armed back then. And they fucked the SHIT out of those white conservative bastards. Commandeered ships and all kinds of other cool stuff.

    Good Lord, grow a brain or something. Keyboard warriors are at best boring and at worst annoying.
