As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776:
"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."
"...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government..."

Secession means war against the Federal machine. I’m all for it, but it will never happen peacefully.
Couldn’t we all just get together at kick the federal government out of America?
Hey, wait up, Nebraska here, can we go with you?
This is just an online petition. Nothing official and therefore meaningless.
It’s either some form of secession or certain demise.
If they get away with it, I will be moving down there.
Secession just means more money wasted on lawyers.
People just need to be patient; the breakup will occur in its own time.
LOL, that’s what I was thinking.
Realize that under our current system people in other states have more say on what goes on in your state than you and your fellow state residents. It makes no sense that the people of Massachusetts and California have a say over people in Louisiana, Texas or Indiana. Or vice versa. The notion that one city can or should rule such a vast, diverse continental expanse is nuts.
IF they get away with it, all the red states should follow.
So make them tell us ‘no’.
Would LOVE to see Virginia join in!!!
You’d see the biggest brain drain leave Louisiana- all professors and researchers (primarily funded via some sort of federal grants) would leave - top students would then leave and study elsewhere not to return and eventually would businesses. Heck I live here in Covington LA.
It wouldn’t take too much to get Texas to join Louisiana. I am all for it! LOL!
“ready to leave the United States of Ohio”
Excellent, Casie. That would be an apt phrase, seeing that Ohio, with its history of political corruption, can now choose the president without the rest of the states horning in.
Sadly, my home state of Florida would require a bath and delousing before we’d consider it. I trust our state legislature, but it wouldn’t be long into hatching a secession plan that “Little Havana” and the south Florida Jewish Coalition would request breakaway status and Federal assistance.
