    I think the United States would be amazed how many of the military would leave service to go to whatever is formed by the states that secede. I also think it would be amazing to see how people that live in states where government programs aren't abused are going to feel when they get the losers we have here. It'll be awesome to watch the line of traffic and clogged interstates as the trash and scum pack their bags and start heading north. It'll be hilarious to see how fast people's opinions change when those they've been defending are actually in their neighborhoods trashing things just for the fun of it. It'd also be nice to have those states use the constitution we currently have and show the other states what it's actually supposed to be like instead of having the Federal government in everything everywhere.

    I don't think any of the states will get enough signatures and I'm in the Air Force for another 3 years no matter what, but it's pretty fun to imagine.

    I'm willing to take my chances on CA AND agree to let TX secede (you guys are up!) as long as you take OK with you. I'll even throw in AR and GA (both also up) if you'll take LA or MS or AL, your choice!

    (I hope members of all states know that I'm totally joking around right now. My only real opinion on secession is that if a state truly didn't want to be part of the union any more, I don't think we should go to war to keep them.)

    I am not sure that I believe any state wants to actually secede, but I do believe that a lot of states would like to make a point about power being put back into the states hands. Oregon has a petition to secede going right now, I am not sure I would sign it, but I would love to read how it is worded.

    Oh, so you're assuming that as part of your secession you get to export the people you don't want? See, I was picturing a more all or none deal. If a state secedes, the whole state secedes, not just the individual people who are considered "desirable."

    I'm saying they'll move on their own.

    Do you agree with it?

    Exactly what I was thinking. I am against the dealth penalty in 100 ways, but I don't complain that it's paid for by part of our taxmoney...

    Ugh. Calling everyone you don't like trash and scum makes me half want to cry and half want to throw up. It actually kind of sounds like what hitler was going for doesn't it? Everyone that's not like me is trash and scum and deserves to starve to death or run like hell, but I certainly don't want them around.

    You can have the east cost and the west coast and we will take the middle That way you can ban McDonalds and sodas and have government sponsored "meat free" Mondays all you want and just leave us alone.

    This isn't even tax money though. They want these companies to pay directly for insurance that covers the morning after pill that they classify as an abortion.
