Ok For real going to pump (with the stupid bustier thing that makes my back hurt!)
Interesting point... Texas is the most anxious to leave? Seems like they wouldn't last very long without US funds to cover their deficit...
Texas balanced budget with stimulus money from Washington - Jan. 23, 2011
Basically, I think if people want to separate due to a democratic result, they are not very... democratic in nature and don't really support democracy. I'd say they pretty much want things how they want them or they want to run off crying. A lot of people had to be patient through 8 long years of a certain other president, and yet the other team didn't want to separate from the country...though I am sure they wanted to really badly lol. Perhaps it's a big lesson of (in)tolerance.
I was looking at the petition for CO to secede this morning, and I would say that at least half of the signatures are either from people who decline to say where they are from, or who admit to being from other states.
Debate question 2: If you don't even live in that state, why would you sign a petition asking to let them secede???
