Peacefully grant the State of Missouri to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.
As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776:
"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."
"...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government..."

The majority of missourians did not vote for Obumma. The funny part is that no state that had voter ID laws(missouri) were won by Obumma. Something stinks in our government

I actually LOL'd at this. There's a petition filed for every state now. The majority of Americans voted for him. How many sore losers will show up?
As for a legitimate argument, let's say it did happen. What would you do with the gap we gave with federal funding? Where would you get any energy to run a new country?*spoiler alert* you wouldn't.

Missouri wouldnt make it , without the government entitlements . Too many people on welfare depends on it . The State doesnt have the money to support welfare , Hud , medicare and schooling for thoses not working . The ones who are working , would be strained to carry the load . This wont work , so need to think of a better plan. Dont ya just hate the wasteful spending in our governnment , instead of takeing care of our own , we send millions to foreign countries , that aernt even our friends. We give millions to businesses , that folds within a year and runs off with the money . While you keep your eyes on the ball , the real issues goes unanswered . Someone asked me what was the good things Obama did , the first 4 years , Im thinking

Wasteful spending! That is one of the biggest issues that neither candidate had a significant plan to correct. The amount of money the US spends on foreign military bases and aid to foreign countries is ridiculous! It is not our responsibility to be the world police!

He's not black!!! And we could
Make it. We have cows and farms and springs and rivers. We have trees. We could figure out the power supply. I'm sure a foreign country like America who makes nothing of their own would love to sell us theirs!

.

How many vehicle production plants are in missouri? Where would our gas come from? how much could we export to cover our cost? Would you still consider keeping the federal US dollar? how would we protect out borders? Just a few questions I thought of during my time reading this.
you are off base

The majority of Missourians did not vote at all. The population of Missouri is a little over 6 million people. There were 2,744,963 total Missouri votes for all of the presidential candidates. Romney got 1,478,976; Obama got 1,215,043; and the remaining votes went to the other two candidates.

Well, I just hope that when it happens(which it won't) MO has enough money to make it when it loses mostly all of the government benefits. I think people just might be ceceding to another state.

I think that at this point it doesn't matter who is in office nothing will get fixed unless remember things from our past that have helped us to move forward. During the Great Depression the president passed a law that temporarily froze the increase of pricing on certain items, bread milk , gas etc. It's going to take something like to fix things. It's going to take a person that is going to think "out if the box" before we will ever be able to move forward.

It really is nice seeing just how patriotically some of us are, I wonder how many of you were flag-waving war-mongers bullying anyone who dared question the neo-cons with slanders that they hate America, now look at you! Fair-weather patriotism at it's hypocritical best!

If you idiots got anywhere with this ridiculous project, STL, Kansas City, and Columbia would secede from Missouri and stay in the union, so your would-be homeland would be a bunch of backwoods with no industry and no human capital.
