Republicans retaliate by...trying to secede


Within hours of Florida providing the final score for Obama’s election victory, citizens from twenty different states sent the White House petitions for permission to secede. Twenty! There are so many stupid things about this that I can’t possibly address them all. So I’ll just do two.

First. Since when is losing an election grounds for secession? When the Republicans illegally tossed thousands of minorities off the voter rolls in Florida in 2000, physically stopped election officials from counting votes, and stole  the election by means of one Supreme Court Justice with an admitted conflict of interest, and proceeded to steer Bush’s illegal presidency into illegal wars, illegal torture, illegal detention, illegal firings of inconvenient prosecutors….did California and New York say “screw it, we’re starting a new country!”? Of course not. Because liberals respect the process even when we lose, because we’re freakin’ grownups. This is like the Oakland Raiders throwing a hissy fit and leaving the NFL just because the Ravens spanked them fair and square.

And second. Most of the states trying to secede are the usual suspects, in the deep south, and in the E-I-E-I-O states in the middle of nowhere. Red states. And this is the terrible secret that the red-staters don’t want you to know: the red states are net consumers of federal money. Every day, every month, every year, money flows from taxpayers in the blue states to all the couch-potato redneck rubes out in Limbaugh land, the semi-literate dropouts who can’t get work, the retirees who stopped thinking coherently around the time of Nixon and Reagan – they are all the consumers of welfare programs, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security. Which means that if they secede, they freakin’ starve. And incidentally these are programs which Obama, the winner, is trying to protect: it is Team Red that is trying to dismantle these programs which are keeping the red states from turning into Somalia. These clowns would rather commit suicide than accept a scary black man beat a white guy.

Stupid is as stupid does.
 
And by the way, third. We already went through this secession crap once. With the same people. We spanked them because we outnumbered them, we were smarter, and we were right and they were wrong. None of which has changed.

I'll agree with John Lawrence. Fuck you. Liberals, what a bunch of fucking morons. You say couch potato rednecks... really? Id like to look at the breakdown of unemployment and welfare by race. My bet is the rednecks have jobs. They do what they can to get by, much unlike a different group of free loaders....

100,000 more of your forefathers died yankee, 100,000 , wow we realy got spanked huh lol

You actually can see the breakdown and you'd be shocked to see that "the rednecks" are leading the pack. I guess creating meth labs can be considered as a way to get by, right?

And thank you girls for proving my point. It took a total of two posts before the mouth-breathers went to the race card -- you've been listening to this black-freeloader crap from Rush for so long, that you're starting to believe it. And by the way, you did get spanked. I heard that in Jefferson Davis' second inaugural speech, which never happened because he was sitting in our jail writing a two-volume explanation of why he LOST.

Ya'll just mad cause you lost. The GOP even said they messed up by ONLY TRYING TO GET THE WHITE VOTE. Now you want to leave the union love to see that because the ones trying to leave don't have anything. No union means no help. Take Sandy if the union was no more how would they rebuild, the states can't pay for it. Grow up and lets get the back to number one. GO USA 4 MORE YEARS.

One more thing try talking like that anywhere else in the world and the leaders would just have you killed like they want to do The PRESIDENT. Ya'll some racist GROWUP if wasn't for the black people the south would still be dirt poor. We built this counrty just like ya'll, ya'll just take credit

Funny sir, how you claim that you and others similiar are "grown ups". Sir you made yourself look uneducated and ignorant by saying your grown up than turn around and use terms like "redneck couch potatos". Well well what a surprise people in response use racial remarks you flashed the first insults in your whole article. Are you a 16 year old kid who just repeats what you overhear your daddy rant over? Individuals like yourself are the first to criticize others for being racist and not open minded. When in turn your the.wosrt of all, circumstances like yourself and this article is a reason of many people want to secede.

Is New York now one of these states?

If you want any Independents (or maybe even Republicans) to take you seriously, I suggest you act as a 'grown up' yourself. This article sounds extremely ignorant and child-like. I'm pretty sure my 12 year old daughter could sound more intelligent than this. Also, if you're going to say that 'redneck couch potatos' lead unemployment, etc. you may want to get some facts to back you up. Otherwise, I don't believe you.

To bring up the fact that the North "wooped the South" is completely not even an arguing factor. When the North beat the South they had 22 million people, the South has 9 million. Let me go ahead and tell you, it's not like that anymore, along with other key factors. Lastly, you brining up the race card, I have to laugh. Even the first time seccesion took place, it wasn't mainly over slavery. It's partly the same reason as now: the North and South's needs/wants are just too split down the middle (almost 50/50) and there's no way to succesfully please both. No one I hear talking about wanting to leave even THINK about race playing a factor. There were enough southeners to vote Obama into office the first time, wasn't there? So please, lay off with the race card argument.

By the way, New York and New Jersey aren't southern states.

Before all of you start talking about pokitics, do your research. Whoever started this post, is in fact a moron. Not all of the states are Southern states, nor are we all inbred idiots. If you actually read, and research, then you will realize that the government already has more power than it's supposed too. It's crazy that someone from the South has to correct some of ya'll, seein as how we are "ignorant".

And again you prove my point. The North really does outnumber the South, still, race absolutely was involved in this election, and the other 90 percent of your posts are juvenile personal attacks. And you misspelled "y'all". Twice. LOL. You girls were better off stopping at "Fuck you" -- you only went downhill from there.

I'm actually not the one who posted "Fuck you", just the one who says you need facts, and thanks but I believe I've made very good points, not making our argument go down hill. I never said the South outnumbered the North, just that they didn't as badly. And no. It's about the fact that the South (which yes, I am from) feels like they don't get a good say in the vote, and also how the federal government has far surpassed what it's powers were initially suppose to be. Our founding fathers, I would imagine, would be disgusted with how strong we let the federal government become.
To improve your posts, as I stated before, I suggest that you research and incorporate facts to make it sound more intelligible and accurate.

When you hide behind "Anonymous", you're going to get lumped in with the idiots. And the notion that the south hasn't had enough say in national affairs is absurd. Reagan and Bush 41 spent 12 years sucking up to the southern right, followed by 16 years of Presidents from Arkansas and Texas.
