Papantonio: Cut The Tea Party Cancer Out of USA

Secession petitions have now been filed in every single state in America, but only a few states have managed to get enough petitions to actually warrant a response from the White House. Leading the pack is the state of Texas, where even Republican governor Rick Perry has tossed out the idea of leaving the union. But when you really think about it, the United States might actually be better off without states like Texas and Alabama and Mississippi dragging us down to their level, and Mike Papantonio spoke with investigative journalist Rick Outzen recently about whether or not we should bid farewell to the south.

3. How can a country founded on secession work?

That's what I never understood about the civil war. So these states say they have a right to leave the Union. So then can a city or town leave the state too? If a city or town can leave the state shouldn't an individual be allowed to secede from their town? There was a state in East TN that tried to secede from the confederation. They didn't want to join the North, nor did they want to be part of the secession. They wanted to secede from the secession. But of course the Confederation wouldn't allow it and they sent troops to the town to force them to accept confederate rule. Near that same town in TN, there is a city that changed hands between the North and the South 4 times.

Anyway secession is a very stupid thing to base your country on. But then Texan RepubliCONs seem to be stupider than most
