I admit that when Crawford Caligula stole the 2004 election, there was talk of secession on the left. However, it was gallows humor. I enjoyed posting a graphic back then of the United States of Canada (with blue states appended) and Jesustan. However, the Republican InsaniTEA movement is actually serious about it!

Each of them signing the petitions etc. should be ask to leave the country a.s.a.p. Sore losers they are but they are also working themselves into a dangerous mindset with this latest anti-AMerican rethoric of theirs. Hopefully they are on the list of persons likely to be thinking of potental domestic terroist acts and that security agencies are keeping a watchful eye on these loose cannons. They are tiny majorities in each state yet they think they should have their entire state secede on their say so...The rest of the people in those states need to tell them to get the hell out of their state and or the country if they don't like being U.S. citizens now.

Correction .."They are tiny MINORITIES by numbers in each state".
I think they are serious danger...look what their hype caused one of their own to do recently...Gabby Gifford shot and the child that was killed due to the killer not liking her politics etc. These Teabagger Klan and other rightwing extremist are hell bent on having things their way regardless of what the majority of people want/say...and that can easily spell trouble for national security....as with any potential foreign or domestic terrorist group.
They are an AntiAmerican Movement and should be watched closely due to that fact. There's a sickness in their ranks that is all too real in my opinion. .

Right. And just imagine the HORROR when they realize FEMA won't be bailing them out after the next hurricane? Or when someone reminds them they can't take their social security or medicare benefits?

This is just childish nonsense...."IF YOU DON'T LET ME WIN...I'M NOT GOING TO PLAYYYYYY!"

I'm with Jae A - these nutballs need watching so someone innocent doesn't suffer or get massacred. Very scary, anti-American lunatics!

pam w - I SO agree...wait until they can't get their gov't bennies! They'll sing a different tune!

Have no patience with sore losers. There were several presidential elections that were highly upsetting to many of us over the years (mainly Reagan, more Reagan, Bush I, Bush II, and "you've got to be kidding" Bush II again! ). However, thankfully there is no third term allowed and we understood "this too shall pass", even though maybe not fast enough. The recent secession requests are pure silliness, and only speak to the ignorance of those who do not understand what a democracy is all about.

Whining cry babies so you want to secede go ahead and don't let the door hit you on your way out of the United States as you know you can't take the state with you as you don't own it so self deport already.

If these people are so dissatisfied with this country why don't they just pack up and leave? They could go to Somalia since they don't have a government then they couldn't complain about "Big Government". Read and noted. Thanks Tom.

No one is being forced to stay here...give up your citizenship and leave! It's that simple! And take your hate, bigotry, ignorance, and propaganda with you!!

I still think we could Deport them - maybe to a New Democracy...oh, how about to Palestine? Their Wonderful Whiteness might cause Israel to declare Peace ..unless they start talking/screaming about their Rights...hmm, no..the Palestinians deserve better than that...Maybe another self-fulfilling Prophecy - stick 'em in those FEMA Death Camps they go on about?!!!!!

This issue was settled with the blood given on both sides of the issue and was DECIDED. If people are so concerned about the direction of this nation, then use the tools existing ... organize and win the public support for your position. It was everyday people, one by one, who stood in line as I did, beginning at 6 AM for a polling place opening at 7 AM to decide the direction of this nation.

As soon as "Eye Of Newt" becomes governor of the moon they could all "self deport" there and name their new home "WhineyBoohistan" and spend their days crying in their beer. :)

thanks, I say....don't let the door hit you on the way out.....of course, then they would go on insulting everyone in the world, polluting the air/land/water, etc and destroying this world even quicker than they try.

In one of Conan O'Brien's monologues this week, he said that enough signatures had been obtained for Texas to secede from the union. Unfortunately, all the signatures belonged to residents of states other than Texas...

'Ignorance can be educated; stupid is forever' - and he is in the latter category, poor man! (And yes, if he's 45 years old there is something radically wrong there - or wait ..... could it be a Far Righter is lying again?!).

It is a shame that good causes find it hard to get publicity and signatures, yet everywhere in the world has a small but loud proportion of the population that will come out of the woodwork screaming at the least irrational opportunity!

Love the remarks - especially Susanne R's and Dave C's and SoINeedAName on PP and Lynn and everyone!! But the green star machine is being stern and not letting me give out green stars yet - sorry.

Y'all already know how I feel about it! Maybe they could get Mr. PlasticMan and Ayn Ryan to buy them an island in the Pacific where thery could all self-deport to.....see how long they last under Fascist/Feudal rule.
