Who is waiting for us to fail? You guys suggested and even argued those that might be "waiting for us to fail" we didn't have to worry about. You guys said all of our republican sabre rattling was unjust and without cause on speculated enemies of America. You guys claim still today that the former president waged an "illegal war."
So, again, who is waiting for us to fail? Republicans? Democrats? Independents? Your team said republicans are the ones with the problem and we needed to change or "align to the mainstream" so, why not support secession? North did not compromise on slavery and war ensued. Slavery not even on the table now, so why wouldn't secession work or be sucessful?
Only viable reason I can see, money. I.E. Taxbase.
I am holding out a hope that collective collaberation in the form of compromise, along with the goal of solving the nation's problems will be the spirit that the 2nd Obama term, the Republican House and the Democrat Senate will work on. If you want to continue the war of division, that is your perogative. Sessesion, even if in symbolic terms only, solves none of our real problems. It only widens the gap. The electorate in this nation see Republicans as the party of 'no'. If you want to see that perspective continued, that is your choice. I think that our energy could be spent in a much more productive way. Is your vision of America a divided one? What do you really hope to accomplish with the seccesion movement? Seccesion advocates as mid term Republican candidates? If so, you're more dead than I thought.

When Bush was elected and through his term two terms, there were many outspoken individuals against his policies, particularly that of the engagement in Iraq. I was one of those. I was also against the Bush tax breaks for the wealthy and his policies of supply side economics. That is our freedom to do so. But at no time did I, or anyone that I know who agreed with my view, choose to abandon loyalty to the United States or endorse the idea of secesssion from the United States. That shows me that the principles established by the constitution are meaningless to many people. Democratic elections are also meaningless to them. Historically, the same thing happened in 1860 with the election of Lincoln, as 7 southern states seceeded based on his election as they said they would. 4 states followed after the firing on Fort Sumpter. How did that turn out? Symbolic or not, to plan a move of seccesion is a very serious and unpatriotic move. Do you support those who want to divide the United States into a separate country? If so, then you need to question your own loyalty to this nation. Now, how you fit the story of the Good Samaritan into your post, I do not know. You will have to explain further. Let me finish by saying that symbolic or not, I have no intention of supporting a move of division of this nation, and feel that those who do should follow their own advice of the 1970's: love it or leave it. Just don't attempt to disolve my nation in the process.
Arnold, I have never said I supported dividing our country. Our country is divided. The division began way before the election and would have continued despite the outcome of the POTUS. The good samaritan came in because you're always throwing in the story about how the good samaritan and how he helped the man injured by making sure he was taken care of. He could have just as easily passed on by, called him a bad name, spit on him and told him you got what you deserved. He put politics of the day aside, did his part by helping the injured man through the healing process. Although you can't help what others post, but look at how others on here vilify those of us that didn't agree with their choice of a candidate and ours'. Let's see, republikan, republiCON, start your own fuk*** country, communist (I think we've all been called that, both sides), stupid, traitor (which clearly some don't understand the definition of a traitor) republican right wingers, crybabys, etc. You always bring up the story of the good samaritan, and as you've accused me before, I will you, what have done to help heal (some will not understand, you get the analogy)? If TOXIC is a sampling of how people in the U.S. treat and view each other, I honest to God predict and hope not, there will be more than symbolic gestures.

Our bantering on here makes for good entertainment and mental stimulation (and we all all guilty of name calling), but does not fair well in solving the problems of our nation. We can expect heated arguments on any level, but I just hope that our elected leaders will work more in the spirit of cooperation in order of getting things accomplished. This would be a good time for both parties to set a new tone, but maybe the divide is so wide that it cannot be fixed. I just hope this is not the case. The way it looks now, anger and division is still the prevailing tone. Both parties need leaders to stand up and set a positive course. Obama needs to set this tone and I think he is showing signs of doing this.

You don't know me or what I support. I clearly see you have not or do not support education. I still find you precious because you want to fit in. In a pathetic way it must be taxing to sit around and come up with the inane drivel you post daily under different monikers. Clealy lonliness is very sad for you and I hope you find somone that will love you and teach you.

Texas and Louisiana citizens began petitions to the White House to peacefully withdraw from the United States and then yesterday that number had grown to nearly forty states. As this happened, the Texas petition topped its goal of 20,000 signatures. I hope the communist minded Traders in Washington realizes that Americans do not want their crap. They will not stand by and let these thieves’ steal from their family’s furfure.

That's not even close to what I stated. I stated that the Republican agenda was to discourage minority, student and elderly voting with tactics of voter ID and reducing the voting hours in hopes of these groups not casting a vote for democrats, which by the way, did not work out too well, did it?
I did not see the KKK standing in front of the voting polls only the Black Panthers and Acorn supports. So who was trying to intimidate who? I was not asked to show an ID. I was only asked my name and address. Signed the book and voted. No intimidation.
The only reason for those appose to ID’s were using minority, student and elderly to hide their criminal acts of voter fraud and ballet stuffing to through the election for communist leader Obama?

I am reading and watching the news since the election ended and I am puzzled how so many people can’t see how increasing taxes will hurt the economy.

I continue to hear people say “It won’t kill the country or hurt the rich if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires.”
It is my opinion that our political "leaders" and some on this forum are completely missing the point. It's not that a small increase in taxes on the wealthy would kill the economy. It's that every tax increase hurts the economy.

Aside from the objectionable taking of private property from citizens that rightfully earned it, tax increases make the economy less efficient, reduce the economy's ability to grow and create jobs, and increases the size and power of a government that is already increasingly stifling freedom and the economy.

Maximizing government revenue should not be the goal of our government. Our goal for government is to maximize individual freedom and economic growth. Neither of these goals is achieved by maximizing government revenue.

Our leaders continue to say we have to raise taxes to reduce the deficit. This too is nothing but smoke and mirrors because government doesn’t have a revenue problem, government has a spending problem. We can't fix a spending problem by increasing taxes, and a tax hike in exchange for growing government just a little less quickly won't fix the deficit. Further, increasing taxes will not help the business down the street expand and hire a new employee. It will do precisely the opposite.

When you here conservatives like myself oppose increasing taxes it's not just some political talking point, nor is it out of some irrational concern we have for taxpayers that have more money than we have.

Conservatives oppose tax increases because they're bad for the economy and our economy is bad enough already.
