    I'd like to say that my state was smart enough not to be one of these states, but I live in Missouri where dumb and conservative walk hand in hand.

    Yes unfortunately it is. I do hope it fails to secede as well so that I can move without a passport if I want to.

    This is a quote from DeeDee: "
    If CONGRESS (aka the Legislative branch of the govt) fails the people -- the rule of law will be completely and hopelessly lost to the will of the Executive branch -- which is what our Founding Fathers intended to avoid -- a totalitarian regime."
    And it is 100% true!
    This is why these states are doing what they are doing. Someone HAS to speak up and say there is no ********* WAY we are going to be dictated to by one person who thinks he is God.

    Yes it is, although I see this accomplishing very little, unless the State Governments get involved in the process. Would that then mean that we would pay NO Federal taxes, but with somewhat larger State taxes? What about the military? I like the idea, but primarily to take the power away from The Fed.

    With citizens in ALL 50 STATES now joining in this symbolic (for the moment) scream of "We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it any more!" -- those in power had better take heed.

    A peaceful resolution would obviously be preferable in a perfect world. But this is an imperfect world; And the U.S. is not India nor has any Ghandi-like figure yet emerged to lead the way. It is ESSENTIAL that CONGRESS step up to the plate and do their job; CONGRESS must decide if they are merely "presidential puppets" who will be silenced by executive orders -- or if they will lead by representing the will of the people they are there to represent.

    What you fail to grasp is that the signatories of these petitions are a tiny minority in all 50 states.

    A peaceful resolution? Are you threatening violence? From a loud-mouthed minority of whining sore losers? Did "liberals" threaten to secede when Bush was elected? Or elected to his second term? No. Why? Because we respect the rule of law and the Constitution and believe our system still works. But then there's some like yourself who simply can't fathom that your opinions may just very well be out of step with the rest of the country. Well, they are.

    YOU LOST. GET OVER IT. DON'T LIKE THE SYSTEM? MOVE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY.

    Here's your flag.

    I threatened nothing and fully respect our Constitutional rule of law. Which is why I said, and will say again:

    It is ESSENTIAL that CONGRESS step up to the plate and do their job; CONGRESS must decide if they are merely "presidential puppets" who will be silenced by executive orders -- or if they will lead by representing the will of the people they are there to represent.

    "... a peaceful resolution would obviously be preferable..."

    Yeah, you weren't suggesting the use of violence at all.
  • DeeDee Groucho... 2012/11/18 13:15:46
    DeeDee
    I'll say again: NO. I was NOT SUGGESTING USE OF VIOLENCE.

    There are however as everyone knows many in this country that WOULD. I therefore pray it does not deteriorate to that. Which is why it is ESSENTIAL that CONGRESS step up to the plate and do their job; CONGRESS must decide if they are merely "presidential puppets" who will be silenced by executive orders -- or if they will lead by representing the will of the people they are there to represent.

    Wait a minute! The "states" haven't voted to secede! Petitions have been sent to the "We the People" Web site at the White House, signed by a relatively small number of citizens in the 38 - 40 states. The "We the People" service requires that a petition must have at least 25,000 signatures before the petition will be considered by the administration. In most states, only the minimum of 25,000 or slightly more have signed the petition. In Louisiana, for example, I think about 30000 signed the petition. These petitions are not in any way representing an official notification of secession by the states involved. And 25,000 to 30,000 represents a very small percentage of the population of most states. This movement could have a good effect if it causes the administration to act on the demands of the people that wild spending and tax hikes must end. But for an actual secession to be authorized, I'm sure there would have to be a vote in each state for all of the citizens of that state to approve or reject the idea of recession. Secession won't happen because 25,000 people are asking for it. In Texas, for example, Gov. Perry has stated he is against it.

    Are you forgetting the little constitutional crisis we like to call the Civil War that pretty much makes secession illegal? A real declaration of secession would result in another civil war. This is merely a symbolic gesture in the hopes that the administration will stop governing irresponsibly.

    That is so true about using the UN laws here and it will get much worse.Thats what we will be dealing with from now on under this president..I do not trust this man,and I have definitely had enough of a president that has all ready trashed our constitution many times and pushing Obamacare down our throats which is a violation,and can you believe how they were able to ram it through by calling it a tax..I've had enough of my constitutional rights being violated.I am not going to give up my freedom without a fight..Next they will be coming after our guns..again violating our constitutional rights..This president has no soul..oh yes,I forgot he thinks he's God's equal, so he thinks he doesn't need one.

    According to the list provide in the link - yes. I don't for a minute think enough time has transpired to achieve the required number of signatures to qualify for succession. Since California is hugely dependent on federal aide to prevent it from going bankrupt being on the list has little to no credibility.
