Weren't all those Libertarians supposed to move to New Hampshire? How's that going?
Too late.... NH has been infested by the libs from Boston.
Didn't they try this before with some progressive President from Illinois?
Wow, history sure has a way of repeating itself.
$10 says the new state will be called "Freedomia"
Funny, but I don't get the impression you mean that sarcastically.
These Libertarians should move to Somalia or Haiti if they want freedom that bad. These places are a paradise since they fit the criteria of freedom that Libertarians are constantly lusting after. Just ask the average Somali or Haitian how successful they are individually because their government has given them all the freedom they can ever want in life.
Well, considering the number of successful attempts for a county to separate from a state, I wish them luck.
Though, I question the source's credibility since the site's geography is so bad they think Tenn. is in "the deep south" and called Louisiana.
Most people in Virginia always called Maryland The People's Republic of Maryland. These news agencies are really behind the times.
The OP source is not a news agency.
$20 says they won't be able to agree on a single name, and there will be at least 8 separate names bitterly contested by various factions.
Texas wants them and that is a good distance away. maybe they can get rick perry to pay their way.
I still keep thinking "153 years and they still haven't learned."
I wonder if they are posting this with the significance of this day, let notwithstanding political party.
You right! My bad!
Psh, maybe out in rural crap-Virginia. I usually called Maryland "that damn place I have to take the Red Line to once in a while".
At least you can buy hard booze from regular liquor stores (who can compete on price!) in MD, instead of those goofy state-monopoly ABC stores in VA.
is "Murica" taken?
I don't, why?
Bootstrapadonia is still free.
You're a divider, not a unifier.
How about The Duchy of Grand Fenwick.
I believe that things might go better with that one.
I'm from Virginia and refer to it as "the People's Christian Republic of Virginia".
I'm missing out on all the fun.
I'm from California, and all my life I've just referred to it as ... Maryland.
Christian Commonwealth of Virigina. Duh...
That's Libertarianism for you.
We're going to need a new Missouri Compromise
When I saw this, I immediately thought of the movement in Southern Arizona to split off the state. People in Tucson don't want to associate with Maricopa County any more (think Sheriff Joe Arpaio).
And, of course, there are those eastern plains counties in Colorado that want to break away. The plan to split California into 3 to 6 states. The plan to split New York into 2 or 3 parts (at one point some folks on Long Island wanted their own state), the plans to split Texas into 2, 3, or even 5 parts.
And, actually, I am in favor of many of these proposals. We just need to make sure that as we split, the number of Red States and Blue States stays constant. Just like the similar idea in the Missouri Compromise.
I would LOVE it if Kommiefornia split
