4. In other words, they want to have their cake and eat it, too

I have news for you, Mississippi. You can't have it both ways. Either you're part of the United States, or you're not.

5. Let's just give those who want a gun toting theocracy a chunk of land and let

 

them form their own nation and the UN can deal with them.

Everyone would be better off and the sane amongst us can move forward.

8. Yes, everyone would be better off, except, oh, me and all of the progressives down here.

Yeah, everyone would be better off, except for me, my family, and all my progressive friends here fighting to make this state a better place, even as Gov. Phil Bryant and the Republicans in control piss all over us, joined by our supposedly progressive "friends" up North who also like to piss on all our efforts.

Seriously, we defeated by the Personhood Amendment overwhelmingly because we had progressives down here fighting who KNEW we could even as all of you stood perched on your pedestals and just assumed we stupid Mississippians would automatically vote for Personhood. But because WE fought we WON despite all your condescension.

We are also one of the few states in 2012 that voted MORE Democratic and we had shifts towards blue throughout the state. 43% of us voted FOR President Obama.

We are fighting like hell to bring this state into the 21st century. It'd be nice if our east coast liberal friends would help us instead of always standing in judgment and brushing us off as a lost cause.

Hell yes, we have a lot of poverty in this state. Why do you think we have so much ignorance and fear and paranoia? Because people in poverty are easy to control. How about you liberals actual come in and give the poor here something to believe in instead of letting the people keeping them down have default control over everything? HELP US, stop hindering. And if you won't help us, keep your mouths shut.

You already get our money now you want manpower to solve your problems too. Sorry you don't get both, We have our own work to do helping our own. When are we supposed to come down and help you?

10. Mississippi couldn't succeed on its own.

It's one of the poorest states in the country and would be a poor nation. After years of isolation, it'd rival Mexico more than the U.S. because, let's be honest, outside the Gulf, who really says, "Hey, let's go to Mississippi!"

11. I don't "kinda, sorta" want Mississippi to secede...

I totally, absolutely, and without question want them to take their sorry-assed state out of America. We have enough pollution as it is.

14. By not doing so completely

They want to re-institute racial laws, defund most public services, etc. But they still want our money.
