    Florida.

    Every single time you hear some crazy ass **** happening, you know it's Florida before they even say it.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I would say we are wasting our time. And kicking a State out of the Union is just another way of saying we want certain people out of the Union, or the height (and worst) of division and superiority oriented thinking. I vote for kicking no one out of the Union, putting on our big boy pants, and getting to the business of securing the future of this nation... for all of us. Not just those we politically like.

    Why not just give Los Angeles to Mexico and San Francisco and Marin County to North Korea ?

    Keep the rest of the state intact with in the Union.

    As someone who wants an amicable divorce for the communists, socialists, and radical leftists of the Democratic Party, and the fascists in the Republican Party - why can't we just split the country up 3 ways??

    To be sure, those of us who desire to live in a free state with limited government, i.e. what America was originally founded as, would be the smallest minority - I wouldn't mind getting a smaller land stake - as long as we could rid ourselves of authoritarians.

    The leftists can have their crony capitalist, socialist states; the fascists can have their crony capitalist, anti-drug, pro-war states; and the rest of us can live free and in peace.

    I would ask why that would be such a terrible thing for you control freaks to consider - but I know the answer... authoritarians never let serfs and victims walk away. History tells us what you control freaks do to people who do not conform - you'd gas, shoot, or starve them before you'd ever let them walk free.

    A nation of free people doesn't need much government, hence we wouldn't need much in the way of tax revenues. Limited government, should translate to small government.

    No, most of us could live just fine with chopping America down to its proper constitutional size

    And New York?? Good grief, that is the global seat for almost all that is vile and corrupt in the world... the U.N., the Federal Reserve, the fiat currency market, et al... we need to turn the place into a real life "Escape From New York - seal 'em off, and don't let 'em out.

    Leave it to Faux to put out a poll like this.

    How patriotic.

    Don't like this country? Take a bunch of like-minded people and go set up your own. I'd prefer to do what I can to improve this one.
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.
    This group is the worst enemy of America and its freedoms. It includes, but is not limited to, all Trump supporters.
