I thought it was a joke, but the freepers are ready to start a nation
http://christianexodus.org /

I thought some of the talk of moving to a state and creating a new country was a joke, but apprently not. I don't know what's scarier - the fact that they have the will to do this, or that they have actually tabulated where they need to live in order to control a state legislature and "rescind ratification of the US Constitution."

Are we really getting that divided in this country? What happened to the America I remember? Sigh........

28. Why MS, Why do they have to want my state! MS is one of the most beautiful
places in the country; the trees, the rolling fields, air you can breathe, and water you can actually drink. Fuck those bastards, they can't have this land.

45. I agree halfway
I don't want to pick on Texas, because I get pissed when people pick on Alabama, or the south in general. But they're definitely welcome to Mr. Moore. :)

43. Alabama, Mississippi, or South Carolina?
50,000 fundies hardly make a dent against an African-American (who vote predominantly Democratic) population of over 1,000,000 in each of these states.

I've heard of a Libertarian group that plans to move en masse to a state with a small population - not for secession from the union, but to dominate the legislature. Vermont and Wyoming were among the states I heard they were considering. A plan of this sort would more likely reach fruition than a half-baked plan - moving to an already-populous state followed by advocation of secession from the union.

12. I've said it before, and I'll say it again here
My understanding is that the blue states pay more taxes than we take in; the red states pay less than they receive. We subsidize them. So when they secede, I hope they don't expect any foreign aid. That'll be the time to cut them off!!

and if there's ever anything slightly threatening about them - or you just don't like who rules them be sure to bomb the entire country, invade and play some "frat pranks" on them - after all I'm sure they'd understand!

30. I have to clarify I see
Texas was NOT allowed to secede from the Union.

Once in, we are stuck....

Though we may be seeing the stacking of the courts to
REVERSE that decsion.

In that case, we may be very well be seeing the END of the country.

We can't have it, well neither can you... these are fundies
for you

By teh way White Supremacists were looking longingly at Montana for
YEARS

27. There is a God.
I'm glad they thought of it first. I've had similar thoughts, but I felt bad about them. (Remember the weird 1960s detente between black separatists and white separatists when they realized they were fighting for the same goal?)

39. I appreciate the feelings about not providing any foreign aid for
Freeplandia. But we will have to give them aid. Otherwise, they will starve to death within 5 years. and without aid they will cross the border and we will be right back where we are now.

40. Bloody fools should consider Florida
it's surrounded by water on 3 sides, is hot, buggy, swampy, and full of reptiles that they'd relate to. It's home to Lamebawl and others. Jebbie runs it. The old folks there now would likely just laugh and ignore them. Eisner would adore them, and make sure nothing controversial is ever produced by Disney Studios again. Most importantly, it's stuck down there all by itself, and wouldn't block access to other states. Travelers wouldn't have much to go around to avoid it.

Florida's a natural.

47. Libertarians picked NH
The libertarians already did something like this. Supposedley a bunch of libertarians are supposed to move to NH now in the hopes of strongly influencing the state politics. It will be interesting to see how that effects the next presidential primary election if they follow through with it.

Edited on Tue May-25-04 11:47 PM by DianeG5385
It cannot be allowed to happen. These idiots have done their level best to divide this country, and I think that among them is a little "terrorist" action awaitin' to be born. We need to smack them down hard and call them on their divisive tactics. We must remain united and not allow these marginalized blowhards to define us. We are and will always be a nation united. No freeperlands allowed. That would be poisonous.

57. Hey great Idea!!!!
I love this, OK so when they actually move, let's write off the areas they take over and actively kick them out before they secede. Then put a damned razor wire fence around that insane asylum to make sure NONE escape. I'm sick of these wackos.
