This reeks of redundancy. When George Bush won in 2004, everyone was screaming and crying like little brats and "moving to canada" and everyone who voted for him said "grow up." now that Obama won everyone is screaming and crying like little brats and "seceding" and everyone that voted for him is saying "grow up." Well, hey, those of you moving to canada 8 years ago never grew up, the only thing you ever hear is "bush did this" and "bush did that." Though I am no supporter of that man, it seems pretty hypocritical of you to me.
Hypocritical... this accusation seems to be considered worse than condemnation to Hell on this website. Most people are hypocritical about things in life, we sort of have to be in order to function. That aside, I think you are assuming that "everyone" said they would move to Canada when Bush won, or "all" Democrats. I don't think that was the case. I might also remind you that sending a petition to Washington DC with 20,000 signatures demanding secession of a state is a tad more serious (and insane) than whining "I hate uh-murrika im movign to Canada now!" You seem reasonable enough so I'm sure you agree. And that seems to be the main point here. I believe that many conservatives have proven how anti-American they are and that they are traitors to the country with this behavior. I'm glad they're not running the country. I'd love to see them move to Canada- but I'm also pretty sure Canada would refuse them.
Guess what, no one is seceding, and no one is moving to canada.
Wanna know something else, there are far fewer complainers than its made out to be. There are only a handful of people who actually want to secede, just like only a handful said they'd move to Canada, and even less that are serious about it.
Again, just to repeat what I, and other more rational members of the board have been saying for the last couple of weeks. There are no serious plans to secede form the union, not by anyone, and the opinion is not even a large minority in any of these states.
Just like the amount of people that were going to move to canada after bush won, but didn't were very very very small insignificant minority.
The Last guys who tried to Secede didn't do to well... Plus I doubt any state has the infrastructure and economy to be a successful, self sustaining country. And the rest of the US would just Haze the shit out of em till they came back heheh.
California was the talk when they wanted to make it into 2 states, North California and South California. And you see where that went. And I certainly could not see a landlocked state survive as a separate country without ports. Nor would the US stand for having a foreign country within it's borders. There would be an invasion and the US would get it back that way.
