    Grassroots movements of Americans seeking a political divorce from their fellow citizens have recently gained traction amid deepening cultural rifts, according to multiple figures involved with secessionist organizations who spoke to Fox News Digital. Such movements have emerged in every region of the U.S. and vary in their goals. Some aim for entire states to leave the union to form a new country, while others endeavor more simply that rural red counties secede from the domination of blue urban centers to form new states. All agree that the disagreements with their political opponents have grown intractable. "We're at a point,...

    As Oregon residents take to the polls today, one thing many will be deciding is whether the state will enact Measure 114, an extensive and unconstitutional gun control law that would become the most extensive anti-gun law in the nation, if passed. Now, as bad as Oregon is, this isn’t a done deal. In fact, polling suggests that voting on the measure is going to be tight. But the fact that it’s even a possibility–plus the fact that the state has passed a lot of other questionable laws, both gun-control related and otherwise–is leading some to vote on a different...

    With the deep fundamental and structural differences American culture is experiencing, I'd like to propose divorcing the regressives and going our separate ways. But how to split up the spoils — who gets the kids, who gets what — are the questions. I propose the following split:Redmerica: We get the entire right half of the country.Bluemerica: They get the left side.Right down the middle. That's the hard part, but we'll make it happen.Redmerica: We get the dirty, polluting coal plants, oil pipelines, electric generators, and gas-guzzler cars and trucks. We also build nuclear power plants.Bluemerica: They can have the electric...

    California's secession movement will get a second try as the state's "war" against the Trump administration rages on several fronts. On Monday, the California Secretary of State's Office announced that a secession ballot proposal has been cleared to begin gathering needed signatures. It comes amid other efforts that seek to split up California "Calexit is left — we are progressive, and that's why we don't like Trump," said Marcus Ruiz Evans, one of the leaders of the Yes California campaign seeking California independence. "But there are some very hardcore Republican concepts to Calexit, including the group saying don't waste our...

    Texas Republicans want to hold a referendum next year to decide whether or not the state should secede from the U.S. The party charges the state has taken its right to self-govern and calls for secession. The demand was part of the party platform Republicans voted on at their state convention this weekend, where they also formally rejected President Joe Biden's election in 2020 as legitimate. Under a section titled 'State Sovereignty,' the platform states: 'Pursuant to Article 1, Section 1, of the Texas Constitution, the federal government has impaired our right of local self-government. Therefore, federally mandated legislation that...
  • What would it look like if America split? Is it possible for the United States of America to separate into two countries in less than fifty years?

    American Thinker ^ | 06/15/2022 | Stephen Dawson
    The overwhelming evidence present in the public domain today strongly suggests that the United States of America will separate into two countries in less than fifty years. Here is the scenario concept. The conservative and progressive sides of America today see each other as a lifeguard and a drowning victim. Neither side will keep the other from drowning when push comes to shove. The only option is for the lifeguard to let go of the drowning victim. This event is the physical separation. The conceptual separation has been playing out for about three decades. The topics of abortion, gun rights,...

    Vadim Petrov, a native of the Kaliningrad region of Russia, the coordinator of the Baltic Republican Party, during Sunday's protest at the Russian Embassy in Warsaw ripped up the Russian Constitution in protest against Vladimir Putin's policies. He also handed over an ultimatum to the Russian Embassy in Warsaw, emphasizing that if the Kremlin refuses to de-escalate the situation around Ukraine's borders, his party will initiate a referendum on the Kaliningrad region's secession from Russia, Ukrinform reports. "Putin introduced amendments to the [Russian] Constitution in order to rule forever. But after 2024, he will be an illegitimate president," Petrov said,...
  • Alberta independence as a self-defense strategy

    Western Standard ^ | 1-8-22 | Michael Wagner
    Everyone understands the concept of self-defense. When one person is attacked by another, he or she may fight back to protect himself or herself from harm. For most people this is self-evident. It is a natural instinct to fight back when attacked. It is also virtuous and just to resist aggression. This applies to countries as well, of course. When one country attacks another, the country being attacked will inevitably respond with military force, even if facing overwhelming odds. Due to current and forthcoming federal policies, Alberta needs to see itself as a community under attack and act accordingly. The...

    Left-wing Hollywood star Ron Perlman has given up on the United States, calling for secession in the form of a national divorce between red and blue states. Perlman laid out his proposal in a typically gruff tweet on Thursday. “It’s time that every state they would elect republicans to represent them, and all of the rest of us separate,” he tweeted. “You don’t wanna live in my world and I certainly don’t want to live in yours.” If Ron Perlman is uncomfortable with the growing partisan rancor, he can partly blame himself. The Hellboy star is one of Hollywood’s most...

    BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - Three Maryland counties are calling to secede from their own state are hoping to find a new home in West Virginia. The announcement has many asking, is this even possible? Lawmakers from Garrett, Allegany, and Washington Counties sent letters to the West Virginia legislature stating, “We believe this arrangement may be mutually beneficial for both parties.” Delegate Gary Howell from Mineral County says there are advantages to both states. “For Maryland, these counties are their poorer counties and they actually send more money from Annapolis than Annapolis gets from them so they are a drain on...

    Representatives of three Maryland counties are saying Montani Semper Liberi. Legislators from Allegany, Garrett and Washington counties submitted a letter to West Virginia legislative leaders to explore the possibility of jumping the border. Terrapins are always free. Don’t take this as a land grab or a succession just yet. It’s by no means a done deal. “These three counties in Maryland, we would welcome these counties. This is the first step. It’s early in the process if it even does happen. These counties are more like West Virginia than they are the rest of Maryland,” said West Virginia Delegate Gary...

    There’s a new poll from the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia that has some talking.According to the poll, 52% of Trump voters surveyed and 41% of Biden voters “somewhat agree” or “strongly agree” that it’s time to split the country, agreeing that “the situation is such that I would favor [Blue/Red] states seceding from the union to form their own separate country.”Now, a lot of media are reporting this and emphasizing the Trump voter part (not so much the 41% pf Biden voters), so you have headlines like Newsweek’s “Majority of Trump Voters Want to Split the...
