The Great Secession
American Spectator, by Doug Bandow

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/10/2012 6:14:11 AM

Is America too big? Is it time to break up the U.S.? A week after the November election nearly 700,000 Americans from all 50 states had signed 69 secession petitions as part of the White House "We the People" online petition system. The missives requested the administration to peacefully allow states to leave the union. One petition advocated permitting states which seceded to form their own nation. A formal White House review is triggered by just 25,000 signatures. Although President Obama´s reelection sparked the cascade of petitions, advocates cited other grounds. Daniel Miller, president of the Texas nationalist movement,

Thankyouthankyouthankyou! Finally, the notion of secession has hit the media outside the blogosphere. I was tired of being laughed at when I suggested this solution, which should have hit a while ago but better late....

The deep ideological chasm that splits this country is not reconcilable. It has gone too far and there really is no longer a middle ground on which to build some agreement as to purpose.

As America stands right now, it will fall to Communism and/or Dictatorship, then to decay. It cannot hold as presently constituted because the Left, half the population, don´t know about, care about or abide by, the Constitution, and continue to institute failed policies and governments that have never worked to make a nation properous with its people still free.

Please, God, let the Secession movement grow and be successful. Please.

"Rather than arguing about secession, it would be better to revive federalism."

And how do we do that? People dont understand federalism, the constitution, economics or business principles. How do you revive Federalism when Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, California, Massachusetts, Maryland and New Jersey have just about enough electoral votes between themselves to dictate presidential elections. How do you revive federalism when half the population doesn´t have a problem with socialism.

I´ve maintained for some time that saving the republic through the vote is no longer possible. And I believe that in order to restore the republic, it may be necessary to break it up. Let the blue states enact European style socialism while the red states re-implement the constitutional republic and lets see which country prospers.

The ultimate goal should always be eventual re-unification under a constitutional republic with the principles of free enterprise.

Talk of secession further advances the revulsion loyal Americans have felt for the individual holding the Oval office. A mass movement like that is needed to demonstrate that the appropriate level of hate.

Instead of secession, why don´t we talk of expelling some parts? Most of the country is "red." So, let´s just expell NYC, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Detroit. Then be very careful of who is allowed to immigrate.

Although most of leftist elite (in their own minds) pooh-pooh the secessionist movement regarding many of the states, Texas is the one they fear the most should it all happen. Texas is uniquely positioned to actually make a go of it because of the abundance of natural resources, seaports and airports, and it has it´s own power grid, a very important point. The communists infesting Washington DC cannot simply turn off the power here.

And if LA, OK, and a few other surrounding states were to join us, it would be an imposing situation. You can bet that the Obama SS Corp (Adolph Axlegrease et al) are well aware of the threat that would impose on their kingdom. Should any of several states begin to get serious about forming their own nation, expect Central Politiburo action; quick, violent retributive action.

Don´t think this administration doesn´t notice this sentiment bubbling up from real America.To show their concern, I´ll bet they´ve recorded all 700,000 signatures and kept them in a file to contact at a later date.

The country was never really restored after the Civil War, only reconstructed forcibly. The Alinskites know this and are driving the wedge into that poorly healed scar. They can´t exist unless there is an enemy to ridicule and to blame.

Even an idiot like Obambi could look at a map and figure that Louisiana could never be allowed to secede. The Mississippi would then be controlled by a non US territory and the havoc that would be caused to hard core socialist states like Illinois and Minnesota could not be allowed. Wish there was secession so those of us that over freedom and independence could once again experience it.

We´ve hit the "50%" marker, where more the half the country is dependent on the government or one of it´s crony business entities.

Separation is the only realistic alternative to the Venezuelan-style morass we´re headed for.

I´d only suggest this: don´t use the word separation, call it "self-determination."

There is great discontent. How long will red states allow a few blue states to impose socialism, bankrupt the nation, and destroy the currency? The constitution required a federal republic, but there is no federalism now. Congress is ignored with executive orders. The country is ruled by an unelected bureaucracy appointed by the democrats.

An amicable split could save a bloody civil war. The ideological differences between left and right are too deep to be bridged without winners and losers. Splitting and remaining "friends" a la Canada or France would be preferable to forcing traditional Americans to accept open Marxism without going to guns.

Yes, I posted the piece, but in my opinion, discussion of real, actual secession is silliness. I know it feels good to speculate on the possibilities, but that´s just it. It´s not possible. There isn´t a state in the country without pockets of liberals and/or minorities. What would happen to those people? Take my home state of Texas, for example. We have Dallas, Houston and Austin. Those cities would never agree to or vote for secession. Then, there is our large Hispanic population. I´m not sure many of them would vote to secede.

It´s fun to kick around the idea, but in our current real world, there just isn´t any way it could happen.

It shouldn´t be states, it should be voting districts. If secession happens, state boundaries need to be re-formed. For example, California. A narrow strip of land adjacent to the Pacific Ocean is communist. The rest of the state is middle-of-the-road conservative. They should be able to secede from the coast. Upstate New Yorkers should be able to secede from NYC/Long Island. Michiganders should be able to secede from Detroit, etc. I don´t think the federal government could stop secession this time. Let´s get on with it.

I agree with Stormy on this one. No way will this happen. Only hope is to let some time pass and pray. Might sound like a lame way to be but we really cannot win politically. The gimme´s are in charge and the Repubs are without a real leader. Revival among black, whites, Hispanic, Asian, men, women and children would end much of the divisions. It matters not who the President is if the people are on fire for God.

#22 explains part of the picture and I agree, certainly about NY state, but before it goes this far how about we start with 2 ideas. No lawyer can be a ´lawmaker.´ They exempt themselves and because they are lawyers how argue for the highest bidder, they are tools for corruption. Idea number two is term limits. They are supposed to be public servants, not pandering hacks who vote endless perks for themselves and make a career of it. I know, a dream that will never happen. On the other hand, a lot of things are actually happening that I thought would never happen, so who knows?

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

Obama offers new insults,

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
