I'm just saying we separate and enter a loose coalition, not build a wall around each other and kill anything that enters.

I'm talking independence...not zombie apocalypse.


Why don't you people grow up and get away from your kindergarten ideas. My god the ignorance on this thread is beyond belief.

At least do a little research before you post complete ignorance.

All in the most conservative parts of the states. What makes you think they will stay with the liberal urban areas if starts start seceding? Once things start breaking up all bets are off, do you really think the state borders will remain the same?

California grows more food for the U.S. than any other state.

You liberals would just be sneaking into our country when you got hungry, if we did!!!!!!!!!!!! And, no, you guys are way to lazy to do much farming. And the folks who are in agriculture in your states aren't gonna put up with your lazy, needy ways.

And guess what? THEY STAY FED! We have plenty of industry and technology here to trade for food...unlike Redneckistan, that only has a few meth labs for innovation.

Although they are both from Illinois.. Obama ain't no Lincoln. Did Lincoln ever make a speech trying to divide us? Every time Obama makes a speech he pits one group against another. His agenda has been divide and conquer from day one. Black vs. white, rich vs. poor, men vs. women. Honestly, I'll bet as long as he could convince those he considers his constituency to keep giving him what he wants and let him do what he wants, he could care less about those of us in the "red states". Wouldn't surprise me if he didn't want to kick us out. Because its obvious he doesn't care what we want, need or think anyway.

Red states feed the country. They see God more in their appreciation of our land, our Constitution and the freedom from big government.

The land of the farmers have made this country great. They are the breadbasket of this great country. They work hard, enjoy the fruits of their labor and have a respect for God and his creation. Family is important to them and their hospitality cannot be matched. God Bless the American farmer.

I think you need to get your ears checked.

He doesn't want to kick out anybody but you and people who think any politician cares what YOU want, need or think.

It's not about YOU, it's about the country as a whole.
