    Obama has often been compared to Lincoln. It looks like he might have a similar problem on his hands.

    This I find interesting since it's the constitutional right of any states to leave the union. Especially Texas since it was an independent republic before entering. They seem to be taking the Lincoln position of "Who the fuck told you that you had Constitutional rights?"

    Fuck yeah, PA. Way to not be a bunch of faggots. The union can keep Philly, Pittsburgh and Reading.

    UPDATE

    Apparently this has blown up since yesterday.

    Personal take:
    With Obama talking about agreeing to the UN Weapons Ban and granting a third party sovereignty over US citizens, it only seems logical that the gun owners are looking to get the hell out of dodge.

    Also, if it did come to war, the US military would most likely not be pulling a Sherman. The majority of them are Southerners and or Conservative. The National Guard swears oaths to the Governor of their state, so they wouldn't really be marching on one another. And even if they did, I'd like to see Connecticut take on Tennessee.

    At the very least, this should provide ample entertainment for the next 4 days of the weekday news cycle.

    Whatever happened to Lincoln's quote "A house divided in two cannot stand"? I'm baffled my state would do this, too.

    Don't be like that. I'm proud our great state finally grown some balls and told DC it can go fuck itself.

    The states have nothing to do with this. All your Congresspeople (House and Senate) are still lining up to yes 'am, and no 'am like good little house niggers.

    The beauty of these things is that it comes down to popular vote and state referendum. Politicians don't get a say in constitutional elections. Theoretically.

    Do you really believe this? Really? None of these petitions are anything more than a protest. Even if they were petitions to get a secession vote onto the ballot, they would still go nowhere.

    FINALLY, a chance to kill hillbillies with wanton abandon!!!

    On a serious note, take a look at some of the states that want to secede....Georgia, Florida, the Carolinas, Arkansas. What would we really lose besides NASCAR events and trailer parks? Anyway, it's a fucking petition. It's about as useful as Facebook likes to stop child abuse.

    No, I don't sadly.

    However if the item ever really did come to a vote, it would theoretically be down to citizens 18+ to decide. Except I don't trust that either with the massive potential for voter fraud.

    Ah gee, I don't know. Maybe because the Southern portion of the United States of America is full of barely conscious, sub-human trailer trash. There are no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

    Puerto Rico has beautiful beaches, dazzling wimminz, the best rum, and kick ass vacation packages.

    As in it took me 2 hours to think of 21 reasons why somebody might be sad if half the country was eradicated in a nuclear blast. That's kind of the point. Your sarcasm detector could use some calibration.

    Ah, Commodore 64. I know a teacher who typed in 4000+ lines of code showing 2 clowns on a seesaw. When he booted it, the C64 froze and he either had to type it all again or give up. It took him 3 days to type it all out.

    The best part about Obama's victory?
    The massive butthurt tidal wave of conservative baaaaawwww

    [​IMG]

    And you all fucking know it!

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The constitution specifies provisions for a wide range of rights, succession ain't one them.

    You know nothing about our constitution, a God-damn motherfucking google would have clued you in on that. Stop lying to yourself, you're an idiot not a special John Galt shaped snowflake in a sea of mediocrity. Get over you're conservative butthurt, Obama won and nothing is going to change that.

    10th fucking amendment. If it's not mentioned in the Constitution, states own it. Just because a Supreme Court found a microscopic rum stain on the paper which they interpreted to be a provision against it doesn't make it real. The ability or inability to leave the union was mentioned nowhere in the Constitution. Erego it defaults to the states. They just need to ratify it as a people.

    Moreover, states can nullify whatever federal rules they please. Massachusetts nullified the fugitive slave law and prosecuted all its citizens who complied with it. Massachusetts also threatened to secede at one point and the government was prepared to say whatever.

    Virginia and New York even made their agreement to adopt the constitution in the first place contingent on the ability to secede later. Implied in this provision for these two states is that the same offer is on the table for all states lest they be unequal.

    This whole "you can't just leave" shit all started with Lincoln and his need to tax southern trade ports in the Carolinas and Louisiana. Truth was even he didn't come up with a good enough reason why state's couldn't just pick up their shit and leave and had to make the whole thing about cotton-picking negros half way through so he wouldn't get impeached when everything was over. To his credit, it seems to have worked.
