Seceding from the union.

Post by Shaokhano » 27 Nov 2012, 21:46

With Louisiana having a petition to secede from the union and the other handful of states attempting the same thing. What's your opinion on the matter?

You're a little behind on your news. The White House has received petitions to secede from the union from all 50 states, though not all have the requisite 25,000 signatures. Last I heard, 20 states have officially met the mark.
It is also not a new trend, the reports I read also said it has happened several times before.

Getting the government's permission to peacefully secede is about as likely as I am to invent warp drive while getting a massage from the Swedish Bikini Team.
It is strictly a symbolic gesture that bho is going to ignore.

But, like Glenn Beck said on his radio show...with THIS administration?
Having your name on a petition like that? Probably not the smartest thing. Bam Bam is probably the most childish of all dictators...er, PRESIDENTS that we've had in a very long time and he is most likey keeping those names for future...'research'.

That is exactly the reason why I didn't sign the petition for Idaho :laugh:

Stupidity at its finest! Most of the same people signing these petitions, voted for Ron Paul or another 3rd party cadidate that had NO chance of winning because in their mind "It was the right thing to do!"
With Obama winning the popular vote the question is, if these people would have converted to Romney could he have won the electorals needed?
The one ot blame is Ron Paul himself for dividing the party and not unifing support to Romney but then egos are egos and it cost us another 4 yrs of the Messiah

I think if you want to be taken even remotely serious, you need to know the difference between 'seceding' and 'succeeding'. :laugh:

Thanks for the change. Not trying to be a pain. It's just that this is a very easy conversation for people to say "look at those dumb hillbillies, they don't even know the right word."

I happen to think it destracts from the heart of the matter, which is very thoughtful, concerned, and educated people are now bringing up the possibility that drastic and potentially destructive action might need to be taken by states.

Right now the pseudointellectuals on the left have the high ground, I hate to admit. Any resistance to the statist fascism that they are establishing needs to be mistake free, and leave no doubt that it comes from competant sources.

No more conspiracy theories, no more half baked rants. We need to use intelligent discourse and fact based arguments.

So yeah, that requires the spelling police to be in full force at times. ;)

No, actually you were correct to question the spelling. Irish said "destracts" & Slippy posted the definition of "detract."
Destract is still incorrect no matter which word the original whiner person was trying for. :p

Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative,
and so forth — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want
people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
