    It seems that with the reelection of Obama, many people are running petitions to secede from the Union.

    Quick question for the secessionists...................what are you going to do when you leave and the U.S. pulls out all the military from your state (remember, it belongs to the U.S.)? How will the places where the bases are located be able to keep going economically?

    Additionally, do you think your state has enough money to successfully leave the Union and take care of it's own infrastructure, education, police force as well as many of the other things that make a country work?

    Quit the crazy talk, calm down, and chill out. Obama won, get used to it.

    Yes I did. Do those who are all for secession really think that they'll be able to stand up their own military?

    Will they be able to take care of their own infrastructure?

    And............more importantly................HOW would they do it?

    You thirteen colonies, you think you will be able to survive without all the services the Crown gives you? Look how much you get in military protection from French and Indians. You won't be able to survive so just suck it up and pay the Crown.

    Speaking hypothetically, I assume they'd create their own union which would basically do all of the same things the U.S. does.

    No one is seceding so your question is moot. And a few hundred thousand are not many.

    Besides...............did anyone ever consider that if secession actually DID take place, the terrorists would have a field day with the breakdown of security?

    True but irrelevant.

    Do you really think that states like AL, GA, TX and NC and VA have enough money to build their own nation? I don't.

    And................if the military pulled out of Norfolk VA, that town would dry up and blow away.
