Thread: Red state residents petition to secede from Washington

  1. #1

    Default Red state residents petition to secede from Washington

    Of course, secession is illegal under the US Constitution since the end of the Civil War, but still interesting to note as an indicator of national polarisation. Such was the Texan ire, that Obama has to make an official response!
    My political compass:
    Economic Left/Right: -5.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.64

    Does this mean Ireland can vote to get rid of Cavan?

    Considering that most of the red states are Third World toilets, I doubt if the inhabitants of the advanced states on the two coasts will be losing any sleep..................

    If it happens, I'm there, in a heartbeat

    Secession is not illegal under the US Constitution. There are no provisions for it but I don't think that makes it illegal(?).

    No States have tried to secede since the outcome of the Civil War.

    I'm sure it won't happen this time but I think it will happen and in the not too distant future.
