I'm not even going to spend the time coming up with an equally derogatory list of advantages that the red states would have, because 1) It's not going to happen, and 2) I'm not that big of an *******.

I'm getting my popcorn and will wait for all of the ignorant beings on this board to come and tell us why the red States should secede and how much better the "blue" states are.

Actually I think no state should secede, if you look at voting maps by who cast their vote in these elections, we live in a mostly purple country. If you kicked out any red states, you would be basically kicking out lots of people who vote Democrat as well which wouldn't make any sense.

The talk of seceding from the Union only makes sense on a geographical level, not a political level.

Once again - the liberals demonstate their dishonesty, deception, and flat out LIES.

The Dallas Examiner? I didn't reference them in italics because they don't deserve to be called an instrument of journalism.

Absolutely - PATHETIC!

(shakes head)
The question is...are you for real? Of course this is satire, but it it were to transpire, the blue states would get the exceedingly good and worthwhile stuff.. You'd get the Bible Belt and the deep south, so what is the problem?

Exactly! You are right. It is the ignorant that do things like this. I know that there will be some who come on here and will defend this lunacy.

Personally, I cannot think of one thing from a red state that I have ever wanted or would ever want. No, can't think of any.

Your smarminess-to-awareness ratio is over 9000! The first of these petitions was started just 5 days ago. Many others have been created this weekend. So yes, the numbers they have garnered do seem to be impressive.

Had this happened before the election, I'm sure you would have been the very first to stand up and declare "Though I disagree, at least it [has] some semblance of integrity."

Nothing eh? Ignorance is bliss. Do just a small amount of research and get back to me. The arrogance is astounding.
