1. there are some blue states in there

NJ had one of the highest percentage of Obama votes, while Oregon, FL, and Colorado went blue. The rest can go and take FL with them.

11. Not a bad idea

 

Then we can have a new election and vote in another African-American president (or maybe Barack can just put on a Groucho Marx glasses-n-moustache disguise).

3. I would have never consider having NJ secede when * got in the second time.

However, I was ready to look into Canada and leave the state altogether if he tried to make a third term.

4. Validate their Petition?

They cannot secede. Period.

Please note there are Democrats in those states. Lots of them.

12. How It Could Happen

Spoiler: Constitutional Convention could do that and much more.

5. Am I correctly recalling

That during one of Rick Perry's displays of mental retardation,causing him to threaten secession,that it was established that the act is not constitutionally possible?.....And....If that is so,is expulsion explicitly addressed?.....

ETA:Yes,I am aware that neither is practical even IF possible...

9. I totally get why the anti-secession people are so. I totally understand the "United" part of the

United States. But just to play devil's advocate here...OMG, how much happier we'd all be if we could just get a divorce. No one can accuse us of not trying to make this marriage work, after 200 years of trying.

Just think about how wonderful it would be to NOT have to fight anymore...to have some PEACE. What if we had a national referendum on where to draw the boundary, and then gave everyone two years to relocate while the border crossings are being built, and then shut the goddamn door. Then next time the New Republic of America had a natural disaster, they wouldn't HAVE to accept federal gov't aid, they can have their privatized aid experiment. Then when they come calling for help anyway, we can LOAN it to them, and charge crazy interest.

Plus, think of the medical tourism we could build, from the Republican citizens with no insurance, and crazy expensive medicine. They'd FLOCK over the border to buy their prescriptions, get dental work...

I know, I'm making light. But I'm serious in asking WHY it would be the end of the world if we all DID just go our separate ways. Let them live in that Fox News, hate-filled ignorance and fear-based way of life that they CHOOSE, and we can all carry on with the 21st century.

18. this is the mentality of those who whine


PLEASE, all of you who voted for Romney, plaster these stickers all over your cars, and wear that t-shirt everyday so we know your feelings about our President. PLEASE, keep it in front of our faces for the next four years. Don't ever let up, and don't forget even after Obama is done and someone else is in the White House, keep those bumper stickers on your cars as long as you possibly can. You HAVE to continue to show your hatred, distrust, fear, (insert your emotion here) for all to see. And we PROMISE not to make fun of you for your hypocrisy.

Oh, one more thing; remember not to criticize or make fun of those folks with the "blame Bush" or LePage stickers on their cars. Because they have every right to display their intellectual thought process for all to see, as do you. I know when it was the golden Bush years you thought it was rude and tasteless, but as you now have realized, it's the best way to show us how you
think!
WELL I SAY TAKE YOUR WHINING AND GO TO CHINA OR INDIA! THEY ARE LOOKING FOR THOSE WHO WORK CHEAP,WANT NOTHING IN RETURN AND WILL LOVE THEIR MASTER!
