Ok ya'll, help me out...

In our dark days, you know the ones that were darker than 2000 - 2004, I'm talking about Nov. 2004 forward. Did we want to secede? Did we talk about that? I know the teabaggers want to "secdee" and I do not recall - I must be having a Republican moment - ever talking about that when the shoe was on the other foot; although it really wasn't because President Obama isn't the arrogant criminal that Bush and his cabal were. I remember wanting to leave the country but mostly it was just venting with no intention of taking action.

Just a thought, just thinking out loud.

Peace to you DU.

1. No. We fought like hell to get our country back.

 

Howard Dean was my inspiration to get involved with politics.

2. Well, some of us in WI & MN did talk about trying to join Canada.

But that was before Harper.

3. No, but I wanted a balanced budget

where money from blue states is returned to that state instead of subsidizing the whiny dumazzes in the red states.

4. i dont know about on DU but i know lots of people talked about the blue states leaving

 

and stuff like cascadia which i believe is the pacific coast. even had some aquaintances who griped all the time and talked of emigrating. I think this kinda crap goes across the board when people feel they didnt get their way and its human nature.

8. There was a bit of light-hearted joking about it

But nothing serious and certainly no petitions. We don't have the same sense of entitlement they have. They don't believe we should have the right to win elections. It's astounding.
