Actually, secession is treason. This guy could be executed if the government wanted to bother with him. I hope he's also remembered to give up his right to vote and to never call upon the services of the police or fire department.

Awesome!!! Anybody ever see Mr. Show w/ Bob and Dave?? They did an awesome skit parodying this kind of thing. Militia-type nut declared his country "Newfreeland" and ended up using rocks for currency and what not. In the end though life was so tough in "his country" he ends up immigrating to America, hilarious!!!

Secession is only treason if you lose.

Hysterical!! This guy sounds like a riot to be around, a guy with an incedible sense of humor who doesn't take life or himself too seriously. That type of individual is very rare these days, probably an endangered species only to be found in Molossia and a few other small places.

Baugh feels strongly about the fact that he has adopted the Kyoto Protocol, banned incandescent light bulbs and recognized the independence of Kosovo.

Ah ... if only all liberals would secede ... what a richer, free-er country we would be.

You're not getting the humor in this.

BTW: When I was young, my Dad declared our house a dictatorship.

How fitting that this article has been printed on the eve of the 4th of July--talk about your Declaration of Independents!^_^

I'd love to sit down with this guy and throw back a few beers. He sounds like a real trip.

Petoria was his country. He invited fellow dictators over for a BBQ (Sadaam, Ghadaffi, etc.)

I wonder what his mailing address looks like. Would the U.S. actually deliver to his door? Or is that border-crossing? Does he have a valid driver's license?

I'll bet people wouldn't think he was such a "great guy" if he was anything but white.

Especially if he was Middle Eastern or South Asian, people would be all over him, telling to GTFO or "assimilate or leave."

Some people may find this entire thing humorous, but there is a clearly demarcated line between political satire and renunciation of one's citizenship.

How would one go about explaining to one's spouse that he was the dictator of the house and not get laughed right out of the house?

I think you should take some strong valium and develop a sense of humor.

If people like you that have nothing going in their wasted lives besides sitting at their keyboards and bashing liberals would leave, I'll pay for the one-way ticket.
