Someone I graduated with from high school posted a petition today on FaceBook for Tennessee to secede from the union.

What. The. Fuck.

So I did a quick Google search, an apparently 17 states (not including TN) are getting these petitions together. The GOP can be such drama queens.

Right on the piece of paper that looks like the Confederate Flag.

What's the exchange rate for $50US to Tennessee Moonshine Corks or First Cousins whatever they'll be using as currency?

Well, if I'm not mistaken, all of the Romney won all of the "Confederate States", or at least most of them. Maybe this is Romney's 3rd, 4th(?) chance to being president. This would also allow us to take in Puerto Rico without having to change our flag! Win/Win if you ask me.

Although, that would make my home of record a foreign country.....

Close. There's a little state called Virginia that was part of the Confederacy.

Edit: whoops, Florida too. Not that anyone cared about Florida in the 1860s.

The Puerto Rican flag has got that one big *** star on it. I think we can subdivide it.

We'll have to, if not the gravitational pull will drag the other stars in forming a Super Giant. Then it's only a matter of time before it starts dragging in stars from other countries' flags; until it collapses into a Neutron Star and kills us all.

Georgia can secede, sure, but we want Athens and Savannah to become territories of Vermont. Or Canada.

Yeah, I saw a thread on some right-wing forum in which they discussed where the best place would be to move. They determined that the only countries in the world that had low taxes, non-interfering government, and legal gun possession...were third-world **** holes. That they didn't make the obvious connection there is unsurprising.

Well, that's the thing. Oregon is really more purple than blue. The more urban areas in Oregon, like Portland and Eugene, are really blue and their populations outnumber the rural areas of Oregon which tend to vote red. Even if the petition got enough signatures to make it on a ballot, it wouldn't be approved. Provided liberals have no interest in seceding.

I'm actually kind of torn on the issue. On the one hand, I would love to not have to deal with the psychotic tea party politicians from red states having a say on our laws. On the other hand, my immediate gut reaction to this is something along the lines of: CONSERVATIVE MELT DOWN!!!! RUN AWAY! That said, I don't think Oregon would survive on its own, so I'd probably vote no on it if it did make it to a ballot.

It seems every election cycle brings out more of the crazy. People flying the flag upside down because "the nation is in distress", secession movements and all the rest. It's tiresome.

Yeah, it makes far more sense for the liberals to say they're moving to Canadia when a Republican wins office. My wife and I were discussing it in '08, and I mentioned it to my mom last week.

The Blue states should just leave and join canada, and let the crazies join up and make their own country.

It really doesn't have much to do with that. Solid blue states have some petitions too. Conservative crazies can live anywhere. And I imagine if you're super conservative in a solid blue state, the crazy is only likely to be amplified.

A lot of these are using the new petition system that Obama unveiled at the White House website (ironically) that allows people to create and sign petitions there, directly.

So you have one bit of crazy hiding in MA? Petition from it. Etc.

The most hilarious part is that these people are all so stupid that you'll get multiple petitions from the same state, just for that extra bit of insurance that this will never go anywhere.

I saw saw a repost on Facebook of a petition for New York to secede. I'm down with that actually; I've said before that New York is the greatest nation in the world.

The petitions are meaningless aside from providing a census of who the dipshits are in this country. If you get 30,000 signatures for one of the "We the People" petitions via the White House site, they're supposed to issue a response but the response will be "Hahaha... no."
