    While one in four registered voters now say it’s time for the U.S. to split into two separate countries – Red (Republican) and Blue (Democrat) – a much higher percentage of regular churchgoers and Evangelical Christians favor the idea.A national survey of 1,200 registered voters conducted by Just the News and pollster Scott Rasmussen conducted January 7-9, 2021 asked the following question:“Some have suggested that the Red States and Blue States (Republican leaning States and Democratic leaning States) should split into separate countries. Would you favor or oppose splitting the Red States and Blue States into separate countries?”A quarter (25%)...
  • TEXIT: Texas Lawmaker Wants Referendum on Secession on the Ballot; In the shadow of an out-of-control federal government there is growing support for State of Texas to consider secession from the USA

    The Texit effort is slated for a major boost this week with the introduction of a bill in the Texas State Legislature that would put the question of secession into a referendum form to voters on the November 2021 ballot.The notion of secession is increasingly being discussed across the country in the wake of what many believe was a gerrymandered election and a complete failure and abdication of the judicial system to affect justice for the American people.Additionally, a vast majority of people are aghast that the federal government is doing nothing to secure their First Amendment rights to free...
  • A brief history of secession in America. Is secession a valid option? Is it wise? Here's how the subject has been treated over America's short history

    American Thinker ^ | 12/18/2020 | Troy Smith
    The call and clamor for secession has steadily increased within the United States over perhaps the last decade and a half. Prior, for the most part, it was more of an intellectual exercise than anything else. Despite its troubles, America remained the most free, prosperous nation on the planet as we rolled into the 20th century. Then things began to change. Perpetual war, out-of-control spending, and a lack of governmental transparency and accountability, along with cultural corrosion, began to weaken and divide the nation. The 2020 election with its specter of fraud and corruption has perhaps ignited the conversation, particularly...

    The elites, in and out of government, mobilized against Trump with resources that he could not match. The so-called Masters of the Universe dogged him unmercifully, censoring him at crucial moments that had a significant, if not decisive, impact on the election. Pollsters did not use the wrong methodology in conducting polls; almost certainly they misreported results on purpose to suppress turnout. The media was uniformly against him, suppressing news—which the FBI said was credible but not worth investigating—about Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings, trading on his father’s connections with Russia, China, and Ukraine. The role of the Dominion Voting system,...
  • Could Secession Succeed?

    There’s an undeniable pleasure in imagining the blue states cut off from America and forced to fend for themselves without normal Americans to feed them, fuel them, and defend them from the kind of dirtbags they kiss up to in order to show us knuckle-dragging Jesus-folk what for. But secession is a terrible idea, for them, but more importantly, for us. And while I don’t think America will unravel anytime soon – though those of us who read real history instead of silly oppression studies dreck understand that all great civilizations do eventually collapse – it remains possible that our...

    League of the South ^ | December 9, 2020 | Michael Hill
    he League of the South was born in June 1994 as a Southern nationalist organization that sought a free and independent South through the means of secession. Over the last 26 years, our mission and goals have not changed. We believe that secession, following the example of our forefathers in 1776 and 1861, is preferable to living in a corrupt plutocracy that is neither viable or reformable. The current election debacle is raging proof that we in The League have been right all along: Secession is preferable to living in a fraudulent system. Therefore, we call on all the states...

    It’s ultimately about the fact that for a country to hold together there need to be a lot of shared values. If half the country believes in the values that made America successful in the first place while the other half of the country is demanding to live in some sort of atheistic socialist utopia that hates everything those other people believe in and stand for, we have what is known in a marriage as irreconcilable differences. Once our value systems are that far apart, there is no such thing as a win/win situation. This is why the standard political...

    Mary Papenfuss·Trends Reporter, HuffPost Fri, December 11, 2020, 11:12 PM EST The head of the Texas Republican Party floated the threat of seceding from the U.S. in a tantrum over the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to bounce a baseless Texas election lawsuit. On Friday, the court rejected Texas’ attempt to challenge votes from the battleground states of Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania that voted for President-elect Joe Biden instead of Donald Trump. Texas GOP Chair Allen West said in a statement following the news that “perhaps” it’s time for “law-abiding states to bond together and form a Union of states...

    "Perhaps law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution."Following the rejection by SCOTUS of the election integrity lawsuit from Texas, the state’s GOP chairman has suggested secession could be the solution.SCOTUS rejected the lawsuit from Texas, filed against Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin, for alleged constitutional violations, which included the illegal altering of election laws, mostly regarding mail-in voting, that allowed alleged mass voter fraud to take place.The lawsuit was rejected due to a “lack of standing under Article III of the Constituion, with a brief order arguing that “Texas has...

    Rush Limbaugh has warned that the US is 'trending towards secession' because 'there cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life' in one nation. The conservative radio host, 69, predicted that some states may soon break away from the rest of the US and declare independence, sparking the same set of circumstances that led to the American Civil War. His comments come as 18 states have joined Texas in launching Supreme Court legal action to toss out millions of votes in four battleground states in support of Donald Trump.

    Claiming that the federal government is “out of control and does not represent the values of Texans,” a state representative from the Hill Country wants to give Texans the option to opt out of the union. State Rep. Kyle Biedermann, R-Fredericksburg, told his supporters on Facebook that he plans to file a bill allowing for a referendum on secession. "The federal government is out of control and does not represent the values of Texans. That is why I am committing to file legislation this session that will allow a referendum to give Texans a vote for the State of Texas...

    Amid Thursday’s over-hyped brouhaha about Jeff Sessions meeting with the Russian ambassador, a curious detail emerged. In Sessions's recusal memo, it was explained who at the Justice Department would be handling any investigations into the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russia. "Consistent with the succession order for the Department of Justice, Acting Deputy Attorney General and U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Dana Boente shall act as and perform the functions of the Attorney General with respect to any matters from which I have recused myself to the extent they exist," reads Sessions's official statement on the matter....

    Donald Trump and the Altogether True and Amazing Origin of the United American Counties. 2020 marked an epoch in American history, standing alongside 1865, 1787, and 1776. First there was the COVID-19 pandemic, then there were the racial protests and riots throughout the summer, and then there was the disputed presidential election. Finally and most cataclysmically, though, 2020 witnessed the initial formation of the United American Counties (UACo) within the former United States of America. Five years later, it is only now becoming possible to assess the most important causes and consequences of this momentous development for American political society.As...

    Irrelevant U.S. election subplots dep’t: last week, four counties in eastern Oregon held non-binding ballot measures on seceding from the state and joining Idaho. Many of you will have seen news images from Oregon this year — most of them depicting racial unrest in Portland, the metropolis that has its own hyper-progressive international cult. You can imagine how the rural parts of the state regard this sort of thing. Or, rather, you don’t have to imagine: they held a vote, and in two Oregon counties, Union and Jefferson, secession actually won by a nose. The victories are the work of...

    It’s becoming increasingly clear to even mainstream media outlets that things are unlikely to return to “normal” after the 2020 election. No matter who wins, it is likely the losing side will regard the winning side as having obtained its win using dirty tricks, foreign meddling, or through relentless propaganda offered up by a heavily biased and one-sided news media. And if about half the country regards the winning president as illegitimate, where does one go from there?

    They Were Not Traitors By Philip Leigh on Sep 16, 2020 A typical calumny directed at Confederate soldiers is that they don’t merit commemoration because they were traitors. It is a lie for two reasons. First, the Confederate states had no intent to overthrow the government of the United States. They seceded merely to form a government of their own. The first seven states that seceded during the winter of 1860-61 did not “make war” on the United States; they accepted it when the Washington government decided to coerce them back into the Union. The four upper-south states that remained...

    The failed state is to post-modernity what the nation-state was to modernity. It’s a recent development that is a hallmark of our age – like a state, but incapable of exercising sovereignty over all of its nominal territory. And while it might sound a little far-fetched, the failed state isn’t just coming to the West. It might already be here.

    It is often said that before the Civil War, the United States “are,” but after the War, the United States “is.” This is a reference to the formerly theoretically sovereign nature of each state as compared to “one nation, indivisible.” More than just the theoretic sovereignty of the individual states, the territory now comprising the U.S. has a rich history of sovereign states outside the control of the federal government. Some of these you’ve almost certainly heard of, but a lot of them are quite obscure. Each points toward a potential American secession of the future. Continue reading America's Sovereign...

    Democrats are contemplating secession and potential civil war as they game out possible scenarios for a closely contested election, according to a report by Ben Smith in a New York Times column Sunday. The bulk of Smith’s column is devoted to the question of how the media will handle Election Night coverage, given that the result may not be known for weeks. Vote-by-mail, which many states have only recently adopted — ostensibly, to prevent the spread of coronavirus in polling places — could lead to an uncertain result. [...] In one scenario, John Podesta — the former chair of Hillary Clinton’s presidential...
