Response to svpadgham (Original post)

21. First off, thank you for your service

What you just said is near perfect to what I was trying to wrap my head around today, while trying to think of reasons why I would want to sign a petition to secede from our union.

Putting myself in their shoes; where to even begin and why would I even be thinking of such a treasonous idea? You have to really think it through. Would you be willing to take up arms to get your way, another civil war, killing your fellow man, KILLING YOUR FELLOW MAN??? Because of one election? You think that 2010 wasn't any more humbling for the Dems? It's called an election for a reason. We the people, election our representatives. They represent us and speak for us.

As much as I disagree with all the red Republican friends, neighbors and colleagues, it disgusts me to think of bearing arms, them against us, crosshairs in a gunsight. SICK! The people in these red states either haven't thought it through or they are truly mental.

We need to push for federal education standards with at least one critical thinking course as a mandatory part of the curriculum.
