Most of us have had it up to here with the garbage in Washington with its vote buying, vote stealing and Chicago corruption brought in by Obama who sold a bill of goods much like Hitler sold Germany before he took it into utter destruction. I don't want any part of that but as I see it that's exactly where we are headed.
    So as soon as we get a Democrat as President, the South is allowed to argue secession?

    Can the East Coast and West Coast do that when we get a Republican in as President next time?

    And why not?? Liberals and conservatives can never reconcile. There are two vastly different worlds there between the REAL Americans and the pointyheaded latte-sipping Left leaning posers!

    Don't get me wrong. I loved The Beach Boys, Van Halen and a lot of that 80's hair stuff that came outta California. But after a lengthy visit there, I would have to agree with Boogie Dawg.

    I think of that scene in Star Wars where the sand trap/funnel, with the sharp teeth, was devouring everything that fell into it's trap. Then I think of Los Angeles. Man, that place, if god gave America an enema, that's where he would stick it.

    I hear Northern California is way cool. But I wouldn't miss California if it decided to go Mexicano.

    Cabo Wabo!

    A call for all Texans to have our Texas State Legislatures, Lt. Governor, & Perry to call a special session to bring about NULLIFICATION of every UNCONSTITUTIONAL Law, Resoultion, Ammendment, and whatever other lies there are on record.
    It is up to the Supreme Court to rule on the constitutionality of laws and amendments.

    Yeah, because when the federal government doesn't do what I want (even when it's democratically elected) I should have the right to just ignore them anyways.

    Yeah, well, you should have treated African-Americans better if you wanted to keep your sovereignty. Since you didn't, the citizens are allowed to use the federal government to be a check against corrupt state governments to provide freedoms and opportunities for ALL Americans.

Let California, New York, New Jersey, and yes, Illinois run things their way. More power to them. If we could just get rid of California we would be infinitely better off.

    I would say the same thing about New York City. Let New Jersey take it and LEAVE UPSTATE ALONE!

    Actually no it isn't. Article X of the Bill Of Rights make this abundantly clear.



    Yeah, because when the federal government doesn't do what I want (even when it's democratically elected) I should have the right to just ignore them anyways.
    As it should be. the Federal Government was never meant to be a strong centralized power.



    Yeah, well, you should have treated African-Americans better if you wanted to keep your sovereignty. Since you didn't, the citizens are allowed to use the federal government to be a check against corrupt state governments to provide freedoms and opportunities for ALL Americans.
    Oh brother, playing the race card again! Typical!
