Another day, another Freeper clamor for secession


Apparently, Drudge linked to this, and the anti-American traitors are eating it up:
Full title of petition: "Peacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government." Posted on Drudge.

As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776:

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

"...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government..."

Let these dumb rednecks try, and watch the union army go all William Tecumseh Sherman on their asses immediately.

And if the south had to get by without FEMA aid for even one year, they'd be singing a different story pretty quick.

All it takes is losing an election for the once pseudo-patriots of the rightwing to become the treasonous bastards they used to accuse everyone else of being.

1. Who needs an army to deal with these assholes?

Who needs the union army? Without highway funds and Social Security and all the other money we send them, they'd have a full blown rebellion on their hands inside of 3 weeks.

Secede, douchebags. Go ahead. Anyone who wants to depart the new Res Publica of Louisiana can do so up until three weeks after declaration of secession. After three weeks: No relations. No visas or immigration. Border walls. Trade embargo. No flyover. No aid of any kind. All federal prisoners convicted of LA based crimes released immediately to Louisiana. All LA-based military personnel who do not explicitly choose to remain US citizens are discharged, effective immediately, and sent back to Louisiana. Louisiana banks are barred from requesting federal US currency, and any Louisiana-based company will have any US relationship immediately rescinded, including any LLC, Corp, S. Corp or any other entity of any kind in any US state, and especially Delaware. Three weeks to get currency out of US banks. At that point, they will be embargoed and seized.

You want your own government? Make your own currency.

Stop mooching off the federal system and the citizens of the United States of America.

They'd last two months, maybe.

3. I'd love to see them go

Is there anything we actually need from those states? We can let the friendlies settle up here. Imagine what a great country this could be without those flat earthers!

4. Since there's enough Tabasco sauce in inventory to put up with their 2 month temper tantrum

I'm not sure anyone would give a good goddamn.

2. I saw one earlier

for Texas.

I love these "true patriots" and how quickly they flip on their love for America.

5. Any state is free to secede whenever they choose

 

So long as they defeat the full might of the United States military on the field of battle, they'll succeed at seceding.
