It's F-tards like them that got Rick Scott elected. Thanks a lot, @sses.

Isn't that the case with all of those secession petitions on the White House website? They're all signed by people from out of state, for teh lulz?

What annoyed me the most about that story was that the "liberal media" reported it like some actual political movement was afoot, without pointing out some of the other just insanely dumb petitions on that site.
 
2012-11-26 11:17:05 AM
All they really want to do is succeed, but do not know how to spell.

Forward said he's telling fellow tea party members not to sign because he thinks those who do will end up on an enemies list.

this is what tea partiers think government is.

Don Forward, who helped organize the Titusville Patriots, a tea party group, believes the system is "corrupt."

"But seceding? What does that gain you? I don't know if it accomplishes anything," he said, noting that the state, by itself, would have trouble sustaining its current standard of living.


Wow, what a reasonable and derp-free argument from a Tea Party person

Forward said he's telling fellow tea party members not to sign because he thinks those who do will end up on an enemies list.

"All that's doing is just giving the White House an opportunity to gather information on us," he said. "I really think that's what they'll do is use it against us. They'll say, 'Hey, you people tried to overthrow the government and we're going to get you.' "


Nevermind.

well, so are most "Floridians", so there's that.

To be honest, who wouldn't sign that petition for Florida?
 
2012-11-26 11:20:35 AM
On the contrary, I think they're doing it right. I'd sign that petition and I don't live there at all.

There's nothing "wrong" with outsiders warning Florida they're about to be put into time-out.

They relied on George "Rentboy" Rekers - the farking FOUNDER of the antigay hate group The Family Research Council - as Florida's expert witness on gays, and then elected, as GOVERNOR, the founder of the execrable HCA for-profit hospitals who presided over a MASSIVE Medicare billing fraud.

It's not funny anymore, Florida. Knock it off.

No surprise whatsoever - liberal activists have been behind this succession bullsh*t since day one. They won the election, yet they are so insecure with themselves and their "me first, f*ck everyone else" freeloader ideology, they still resort to these kind of dumbass tactics. Typical liberal scumbags.

Let me just get my parents out of Florida (who are dying to leave anyway), and I'll sign that farker. There's nothing great about Florida that can't be found in the Outer Banks. Disney World is way past its prime. There's no reason to pay $90 to enter one of those parks.

Projection much? there are indeed far righties who support this movement, given how many succession bumperstickers I see down here in texas, and how many pro-succession facebook posts I see from conservatives.

These things.

FTA: The petition has more than 34,000 signatures. Most who signed listed Florida hometowns, though a large number identified themselves as out-of-state residents. The petition includes signers' first name and last initial as well as their hometown and the order in which they e-signed the document.

They're probably too stupid to know where they live, much less being able to read and write.

It's apparently been enough of a conservative movement in Texas that Rick Perry felt like he had to pay it lip service by making statements that kind of, sort of, sound like he supports secession, though phrased in a way he can easily walk back if need be. (Though he's been very quiet about these latest petitions.)

It's not just liberal media; my...uh...bright friends who supported Romney believe it to be true.

One that's excited about secession actually believes that Obama got more popular votes in Ohio than there are registered voters. He got something like 50.9% of the vote in Ohio. You do the math.

/but no, now that it's not working, let's pretend it's just the dumb libruls who thought it was real
 
2012-11-26 11:59:38 AM
But Macia said Republican and Democratic politicians shouldn't dismiss the petition movement as a fringe idea.

Yes they should.
 
2012-11-26 12:00:23 PM
Rep. Ron Paul, the libertarian-minded Republican from Texas who ran for president, has given the movement a thumbs-up.

"Secession is a deeply American principle," he wrote on his congressional web site. "This country was born through secession. Some felt it was treasonous to secede from England, but those 'traitors' became our country's greatest patriots . . . If a people cannot secede from an oppressive government, they cannot truly be considered free."



Well, great job Ron Paul. Now I've pretty much lost the remaining respect I had for you. Secession is not a "deeply American principle". We fought a farking war over whether or not states had the right to secession and the answer was - across all fronts - a resounding "no".

I would doubt that if you asked 100 Americans, that even 50 would say that the government (or even just the courts in this case) held "deeply American principles". I think the people and the government are rarely on the same page at the same time.

My thoughts exactly. In fact, I would be happy to sign secession petitions for Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, and a handful of other states as well.

mongbiohazard: Ron Paul: "This country was born through secession."


Someone should inform the representative from Randland that colonies don't "secede" from their controlling autocracies. Colonies demonstrate their disenchantment by rebellions, uprisings and revolts.

Secession, at its root, involves the withdrawal of a vested member of a republic's confederated political body. It was first applied in the context of a plebeian insurrection during the Roman Republic. That is to say, this country was born through rebellion, not secession. Words have meanings.

Indeed, for the most part, the founders had far more in common with ancient Rome's reformist Gracchi Brothers than they had in common with John C. Calhoun.

Please do get them out of here, and as many other geriatrics as you can. Get rid of the snowbirds and all the geriatrics that retired here from somewhere else, and keep them out...and we will gladly leave.

While I do not like FL at all, it appears im stuck living here. Moving my family of 4 out of the state isnt going to happen...Ive tried twice this year. One angle was beyond my financial means, the other failed because of the wifes cousin stole our place to stay. Also, in this economy its very difficult to find a job somewhere new, as they would rather hire current residents than people from out of state. So having as many of these old farks as possible GTFO would be a blessing to those of us who have to live and work here.
