I think I could get behind this secession movement.
I could get behind this.. Include Pinal County, and I'm in.
Secession is stupid when the right talks about it, and it's equally stupid when the left talks about it.
This is serious thread.
And that was a serious comment.
OK, settle down.
The best thing I read above, was their encouraging new development/investment in this region, specifically because of their moderate policies.
Money will out, always.
I can't blame the sane ones for wanting to secede from that xenophobic cesspool.
The difference is the right talks about it they are wanting to secede from the US. This proposal is to Secede from the state and form a new state in the US, leaving the US has had a civil war to show that it's not possible, but forming a new state from part of an old one is possible and legal. West Virginia did it.
So this would mean two more Democratic senators. I wonder how Republicans and Democrats would vote on this proposition. I can see the clamor. It's just a ploy to keep Republicans out of control of the Senate they will say.
Not that I don't want the Arizona red-staters to get a swift kick in the pistachios, but where is this going to end? Is every rural area who doesn't like the politics of Them Big-City Slicker Types going to form their own state? Is everybody in the US going to have their own state? In the mass hysteria that follows, will even the dogs and cats live together?
And you know this how???
Get all the crazies in one area, and they may vote go Republican.
