The producers (AKA Conservatives and Libertarians) in this country are tired of subsidizing the looters (AKA Obama Socialists)... and given all of the voter fraud that we have seen - many people are just done with the notion of fair elections. As a result of this election, clearly 1/2 of the country feels they are not being served. The polarization is astounding.
Question is .. can a State truly secede?
Ben Swann answers:
Then there is always State's Nullification - and the 10th Amendment. In any case, it would appear that any secession initiative, or nullification actions, would have to start in a State's legislature. These online petitions are totally non-binding.
One thing I do know is that these petitions mean nothing except that the White House must respond to them.
“After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.” - Valerie Jarrett - White House AdvisorGiven Valerie Jarrett's proclamation, it appears to me that signing these petitions online is a good way for the White House to "take names" or IP addresses and compile a list of "everyone who opposed us".
Just imagine carving up our country between Red and Blue.. in fact, divorce letters have already been penned:
Dear Red States
Dear Blue States
"So that's the deal. You get the cities, with all the crime, crack mommies, and corruption you can stand. And sure, you get many of the elite colleges too, with the professors who think that terrorists in Fallujah are freedom fighters and that the people who worked in the Twin Towers on 9/11 were no better than Nazis.
We get the suburbs, the countryside, and all the other beautiful places that remain unspoiled by liberal hypocrisy and addle-brained social experimentation.
And we'd like a favor, too: please keep your sky-high tax and crime rates, since we're happy to have the corporations and jobs that continue to flee your Blue cities into our Red counties. Much appreciated, since our unemployment rates, to say nothing of our crime, single-parenting, and illiteracy rates, are far lower than yours." - (excerpt from Dear Blue States)
