My entry about the states looking to secede from the Union got the following comment from the fine and upstanding  hellaine:

"Well, it's individual nutcase citizens putting out those secession petitions, not the actual states or governors. I think that's an important distinction to make."

She is absolutely right.  I recognize some may not think this deserves a "Department Of Corrections" entry, but it's my blog, it's my rules.  And I say she makes a very valid point and it is something to keep in mind in the middle of my rant.  So I apologize for tarring so many with one brush.

Yes.

Okay.

Tell you what.

Go a week without federal aid, without federal response, without federal oversight of your food / water / etc. Also no going between states because now you're your own country and border control, dude. Make sure you have the appropriate papers.

Have fun.

I think a fine compromise would be for one state to secede from the Union and everybody moves there, leaving the rest of the states alone. Then we can avoid them by just not crossing the border.

Why do people have to act like this?

ETA: (P.S. I think this secession stuff is stupid. Just making sure I'm clear where I stand on the issue.)

Here's a question... What if those people that are trying to secede where to have instead posted petitions to fix the things they thought were broken? For example: "Petition to nullify NDAA right this instant, with a public apology from all political officials that agreed with it."

Wouldn't that be more effective than trying to start another civil war?
