killing peaceful secessionists

78 posts in this topic

since it has become a topic of recent discussion, i'd like an honest headcount of what service members would be fine with killing peaceful american citizens wishing to constitutionally opt out of the american government en masse by way of secesion.

say we had a number of states stretching from nc down to texas and southward looking to secede and start over with an amicble split. if the current commander in chief (or any future one for that matter) ordered an unprovoked attack to protect the union, would there be any hesitation?

it has been purported by a few that there would be no hesitation and that it would be wholesale slaughter until opposition was sufficiently suppressed. do these few represent the majority of our servicemen and women?

Just a note that if it were the libruhls wanting to secede they would be quickly labeled by conservative nut jobs as traitors.

You'd probably see an agreement to give liberals California/New York and let them have it.

First of all, none of this is going to happen. Some who didn't like the election results are just venting, and it will be mostly forgotten except by a few nutjobs in a few months. This isn't 1861, not by a long shot.

That being said, I would definitely be willing to fight against someone who would take up arms against the US as things stand now.

What about those in the state who do not want to secede?

If you are peacefully seceding than what is stopping everyone else from ignoring you?

assuming that the secession movement is peaceful, they can stay or leave as they choose. if it is to the point of secesion, then they would be a small enough minority unable to sway the majority otherwise. no violence. simply an option presented of stay and bear with a new republic, or leave for the known of the old republic.

an option for a peaceful secession does not preclude an amicable break-up. simply a parting of ways for irreconcilable differences

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
