Who would be stupid enough to say that?

*clicks link*

Well that should have been obvious.

So is apparently being bitter at its failure...

Did not watch, because I could probably recite it verbatim without doing so.

Look, you assholes, whether you like it or not, we are the United States of America. Despite our bickering, it's our union that makes us strong. Especially you welfare queen states (I live in one more interested in b*tching about the federal government than addressing its own issues).

This kind of grandstanding about secession is pretty offensive to me. Not personally, but as a patriot.

Oooooooooooh, you thought you guys were the only 'patriots' out there? Guess again, Jethro.

Farking traitors.

Yes, it is an American tradition. Just don't forget that with secession comes a lot of shooting and dying on both sides.

Good to see the Tory demographic is well represented here.

Let's compromise... we'll float you out to sea, then you can do whatever you want.

Ahh yes. Seccession. The tradition where you leave a country and get your ass handed to you on a silver platter.
 
2012-11-26 12:43:24 PM  
Well, the U.S. seceded from Britain. Ta-da.

Then the South tried it from the U.S. Oops.
 
2012-11-26 12:44:05 PM  
England I should say.

But we did have that little war over whether the colonies could be a country or just part of one.

One can make the argument that if government derives its powers from the consent of the governed, that the governed should be free to remove said consent, lest it be considered granted under duress.

One would lose, of course, but one could make the argument.

I think the secessionists are misguided, seemingly of teabagger influence. If anything, we should be rejecting a government with so much lobbyist influence that large private industry gets most of whatever it wants despite being against the interests of the people.

Lando Lincoln: Yes, it is an American tradition. Just don't forget that with secession comes a lot of shooting and dying on both sides.


Some examples of peaceful secessions:

Belgium seceded from the Netherlands in 1830
Norway from Sweden in 1905
Singapore from the Malaysian Federation in 1965
Czech and a Slovak republics from Czechoslovakia in 1993

Pains me to say it, but we may be better off if some teabagger heavy states decide to secede. Maybe we can finally get single payer healthcare among other things.
 
2012-11-26 02:07:32 PM  
Oh, I forgot about 15 republics peacefully seceding from the Soviet Union in 1991.

That shiat might fly over in sissy Europe, but over here, if you want to leave this gang, you have to fight your way out.

Here's another American tradition. You assholes should jump right on this.

Would that "peaceful" part include those cool Polaroids of tanks in the streets in Moscow and the exploding Parliament building during the second attempted coup d'état in 18 months?

Exactly. Secession is a part of our history and a valid path for those who want to pursue their own future. You just have to be prepared for the blood and the possibility that you might lose.
 
2012-11-27 03:49:51 AM  
I bet I know exactly who that is.

Yup.

No wonder Paul is against foreign wars, he's a fan of Civil War.

Americans have seceded only twice in their history. The first time was from the British. The second time was from each other.

Contrary to TFV, the Founding Fathers knew damn well what they were doing was treason and if they weren't successful with the Revolution they would be hanged.

Unless, you can find an amicable way to leave you are declaring war with the US. Never say that you love America ever again. And you don't get to come back no matter how many times you yell, "Help, Mr. Wizard the Lizard!"
