As you have probably all heard by now, there are a total of thirty-four states petitioning to secede from the Union. At the moment. As in, we very well could see more deciding “Hey, we don’t want to be left out by not getting out! LET’S SECEDE!” And just so you know, it’s totally not my style to blog about two political issues in succession.
Thirty-four states. Make that 37.
But that’s over half the United States. That’s quite a few unhappy people bitching about the current state of the federal government. And you know what? I don’t blame them. But is it because Obama was re-elected and Romney lost, or is it because people actually realize how shitty our government is?
I’m betting it’s the prior. People, Romney was not a good fit. And trust me, I don’t like Obama that much, but he’s better than Romney.
So now the questions are: if the state government of Texas, who currently (at the time of this posting) has over 84,200 signatures and counting, decided to listen to this petition and they began drafting a legitimate request to secede, how many other states would start their own? Is this the start of a revolution that has been pending for years? Are we going to see a change in our current federal government?
I, for one, still support the idea of Cascadia. For all you people who’re just confused and/or from Washington, it is compromised of the land now called: Oregon, Washington, and part of, if not all of, British Colombia. But would separate countries now be a good idea? What potential problems could we face should a handful of states be allowed to secede? Which we know they won’t be, but just what would be the dangers of a new country that just came off of the United States of America?
