You guys make fun but something seriously needs to be done about the tyranny of the popular vote.

fascinatingly a significant portion of the people signing these things live in states that receive far more from the federal government than they produce in revenue, which is interesting considering their position astride the moral horse of not taking government handouts

also if half those states left they'd be third word countries, but i guess the good news is they'd get to keep the straws of pet institutions like guns and racism that they've been grasping at since reconstruction

I'm waiting for California to succeed.

Our first move is we invade Baja California and seize it from the Mexicans.

Next we make the entire West Coast the ultimate vacation spot with legal hookers and free weed.

Then we sit back drinking our Pina Colodas and cold beers watching sunsets while all you fuggers fly in and leave your vacation dollars .

It could happen.

Well, since he has to reply...

Obama: Now... Its come to my attention that people in many states have signed a petition asking to secede from the union....

Let me just say this to Texas, Alabama, Florida & the rest. We're no strangers... to love. You know the rules & so do I. A full commitment is what I'm thinking of. (& let's face it) you wouldn't get this from any other guy. Now I just want to tell you how I'm feeling, got to make you understand. Never gonna give you up... never gonna give, never gonna give, give you up.

seccession was legally incuded in the constitution. when virginia sought to exercise that clause, it didn't work out so hot. this country's so great, you aren't allowed to leave. that's right up there with "ideas so good, they're mandatory!"

    • To each his own. I think they are supremely flavorful and delicious. Romaine, raw spinach leaves, and cabbage (shredded or in the form of slaw) are pretty much "accepted" ways to eat, but my wife and I (and sometimes my teen son) have just taken it a step further. And let's not talk about all the delicious red, yellow and green peppers. Yummy! Not saying this is you, but sometimes you just have to reprogram your mind and your taste buds. Each veggie and fruit has a flavor and aroma all its own. We destroy so much of the natural flavor and aroma during the cooking process. BTW, nutritionally, blending is superior to juicing. 
    • Feel free to point out in the Constitutional enumerated powers or the amendments where your description of social contractually obligated taxation is laid out. Here's a starter, in case you didn't have it available: http://constitutionus.com/ The legal system has been performing mental backflips for over a century to get as far away from the original intent of limiting central governance while leaving whatever would fall to your version of a social contract for the states to work out. Again, this doesn't address the prior discussion of how Jesus would view government's role in being a Godly and moral person.  You don't find this in the 5 books in the Bible where he most directly represents himself.  Anyone stating differently is cherry-picking out of context for the sake of a statist agenda or doesn't have the inclination to read it for themselves. Maybe you need a video to spell it out for you:
