    This is such a great issue and it seems to come up every four years. Depending on who wins the election as to who is leaving. The liberals were great with their,"If GWB is re-elected I'm leaving. I'll move to Canada or anywhere but here." Now Obama got his second term and the shoe is on the other foot, except they want to leave and take their neighbors with them. State Secession.

    State secession is a dumb ass idea. If you don't like it here and wish to move, please do, exercise your freedom. No one is stopping you, and it's legal.

    Here is what you can't do. Stay and make everyone else leave, and you can't make your neighbor secede with you.

    The very idea of secession flies in the face of why they want to secede in the first place.

    This country became great because of secession. Our founding fathers were considered traitors in the beginning and are now considered heroes. Secession may be the only way to get our country back to what made it great in the first place. There's nothing patriotic about succumbing to tyranny.

    Tell the Founding Fathers that secession is a bad idea.

    You're a dumbass.

    There is no secession movement. It is a tempest in a teapot, and the teapot is about the size of a thimble. No state is even exploring the idea.

    Would you like to hear more dumb arse ideas? How about giving the purse strings to the federal Congress, like they did at the turn of the 20th century, so that we can enjoy a 13% national approval rating for them? How about a fiscal crisis 100% manufactured by that Congress?

    The idea that a state would be allowed to secede is niave as thinking that these entrinched hated politicians in Congress can be elected out of office. Then, if by some odd chance a state was allowed to secede, we would have another Lincoln send in the troops to kill off another 600,000 or so thousand Americans to put down the rebellion.

    Nothing would make globalists happier than splitting our nation.
