    Are you trying to say I'm like Hitler? Are you trying to imply I said everyone not like me deserves to starve to death? If so, how is her post considered acceptable but I get dinged for pointing out how stupid her posts are?

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.
    Do you meant the states that defect, so to speak, and start their own country?

    Susan, I get what you are trying to say about dehumanizing people, but I also agree that comparing someone to Hitler over calling someone "trash" is over the top and not okay.

    And yes Lillie, I will ding anyone who says "Your posts are stupid." That's a no-brainer.

    This is more of what I was trying to say. I am grumpy today and not doing well at getting my point across.

    See, because I think that the defecting states would have a heck of a time borrowing the constitutional rights of citizens from a country they loathe enough to actually leave. I have a feeling the constitution will stay exactly where it is...with the United States of America, of course with an amendment or two or three or four.

    that's the irony. The US policies are a joke. So you guys would continue to get the people we wouldn't want because they'll want to continue living the lives they currently have. Whether they are legal or not. The racial ratio of illegal immigrants would just become more balanced. LOL

    Constitution - I wasn't saying the original US would lose it, I was saying the new country would actually use it. Copy it and actually follow it instead of playing with it willy nillly. I Nominate Ron Paul for the first UnUnited States President.

    The original US can keep Colorado, but has to give us Colorado Springs or Durango.
