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.
