Secessionist Trail of Tears

As the US grew and expanded we took more and more lands from the Native Americans. We marched them out of fertile lands to reservations that could barely support their populations. But it was all Manifest Destiny. We superior white people really knew what was better for all those heathen red and brown people. We set them up on reservations with some of the poorest land and wildlife conditions and called them Native American Nations. Sovereign within the borders of their apartheid like reservations.

So now, there are thousands of people who want to secede from the US. They don't like the fair re-election of our President. They want out.

I say okay. Let's let them out. Let's gather them all up and march them to a dusty, dry useless parcel of desert like we did with the Native Americans and call them a Nation. Sovereign within the borders of the piss-poor lands we give them. And then if we find there is oil or natural gas under that piece of shit land let's find a way to take it back so ExxonMobil and BP can mine it and make a profit.

Yep, let's let them secede onto their own reservations where they don't have to follow US law and can form their own governments.

Seems reasonable to me.

2. Sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Here in Texas, 75% of the population don't want to secede. And I'll bet those nimrods that do haven't thought it out well at all. Like good-bye clean water, the US dollar, Medicare/Medicaid funding to your hospitals that will force them to close, especially here in Texas where we have the largest number of uninsured people in the country. But, since we won't let the sorry sumbitches let the state secede, they can move their sorry asses to Wichita Falls next to Oklahoma. Okies have been going nuts lately too. They'll keep each other good company.

3. NORTH & SOUTH CALIFORNIA

 

This state has its right and left political members who would like to divide the state with like minded members. The south would contain the inside valley area and avoid L.A. and the coastal southern areas. maybe it would make more sense by saying coast and interior California. Once every few years the idea comes up from GOP members who are out voted by the democratic majority.

This year California has a super majority in both legislative houses. The Governor "moon beam" has become less progressive with old age and there may be many things he will not go along with to keep everyone happy. The voters did agree to increase taxes to balance the budget. Very bizarre during a recession.
