Do you support secession?

Only when the federal government decides to come and try to take away the guns of law abiding citizens will the South ever secede again. This time I am sure alot of other non-southern states would join.

Yes I would if for the right reasons. If you study the reasons the south tried the first time there more many reasons beyond the slavery issue. Which popular history has madeit the single reason for secession.

States rights are number one. The states were created to be a "country" unto themselves. The Federal Governments purpose was to provide protection from foriegn invasion and minimal guidance to the states.

Look at the electoral map over theast couple of elections. A relative few states with high electoral college numbers are determining who leads this country. The south is still a conservative, socially and fiscally, and yet liberalism and socialism is being forced upon these states with no recourse.

What will it lead to? My fear this last Presidential election was the tipping point. Those that chose not to contribute to society and the growth of the country have exceeded the ones that love what our country once was and the American Dream. The dream of many now is to, do little, take what they can and give nothing.

Secession is not treason. It is not allowed nor denied in the Constitution. For the record the Colonial States seceded from England due to the mother country (monarchy) levying higher taxes on the Colonial States. Sound familiar?

From Merriam-Webster

: the offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance or to kill or personally injure the sovereign or the sovereign's family.

No one suggested any such acts. Secession can be carried out by order of law by the state that chooses to do so.

Really why do we ahve a central federal government? Africa does not. Central America does not. Europe does not. South America does not. Russia does. China does and look at the state of those citizens that live there.

Well go ahead and do it, then. How well did it work out the last time?

Since they did not like my use of the word h3ll, I will repeat: heck yeah! kick all the southern boys out. We would be so much better off without the hillbillies and Hicks, and good ol boys.

These southern boys are just unrefined, uneducated wastes of space and air. They have proved time and time again they just cannot handle proper Commerce.

Figures you'd think you have to have a carry permit to hold a bottle of cheap whiskey in your pocket. You southern boys are all the same, no good sense and cheating anyone you can. You run your government the way you do your businesses, backwards like you're still living in the backwoods. Don't worry, it'll all catch up with you. Wipe you chin...

Texas has the biggest Secession Movement in the U.S (Texas Nationalist Movement) and a VERY strong economy. There's no doubt in my mind that Texas could lead the way for other states. I hope I live to see the day when this happens. People are tired of tyranny!

The Confederate Flag never flew on slave ships and Democrats started the Klan.

It's 2013 and Democrats are still holding down Black people. Have you ever noticed that the Whitest states and cities are all Liberal? They love to hold the Blacks down by jacking up rent prices and keeping them dependent on walfare. It is like this in Seattle and many New England states.

And people are tired of ignorance, too, but that doesn't keep you from talking. It is not going to happen so why don't you talk about something relevant?

Hmmmm... have you not noticed the billions of rounds of body kill bullets the government has bought since last spring? What do you suppose all that ammo is for? Good luck on doing anything outside the norm. Secede? Good luck with that. You are in a minority and minorities seldom succeed at doing much of anything. All this hullabaloo is because the republicants can't find a dynamic leader and keep pushing to the front those who think as you do, like Palin or someone who doesn't even want to run like Mitt. We will have to see if Paul has anything to offer or else we will have another Clinton. And don't even mention Jeb's little boy, he's just another Bush and we've had enough Bush.

Have you ever opened a History book? Back then, Democrats stood for Republican stances of today and vice versa. Democrats started the Klan? Would you supply a source for that please? lol
