The New Secessionists

In the Monday, April 26, 2010 edition of (it is in your resources area of this blog) there is an article called: The New Secessionists. This article indicates there are as many as two dozen states, but it specifically mentions: Texas, Hawaii, Alaska, and Vermont.
The article does not mention Hawaii'and Alaska's movements, mainly because they have been vocal for years, but it does discuss Texas and Vermont. You might want to take a look to see why these states are upset.


  1. I read this article that you were speaking of and it's depressing, yet, realistic. Our country is bankrupt and it would only take a little for China to bring us down. In my honest opinion, this is bound to happen with the Free Market System. Money corrupts, and clouds the judgment of people. They stop looking at what's in the best interest of the country and start looking at the best interest of themselves and their buddies.

    I'm not sure that allowing the States to move away from the US is a good decision either, though. Mainly, because we will have the same issue just on a smaller scale. In my mind, the only way to keep the rich people in check is to make sure that the whole nation can have a vote of "no confidence" with Senator's, President's, Congressman and so on. That in my mind would help keep them straight. But then again, they would probably find some loop hole. The outlook for the US doesn't look good in my mind, and it's sad.

  2. Very good insight. We as citizens are going to have to work together to help our country in its time of need. People seem to be getting the feeling and are starting small groups. No not like the tea party, they are corporation bought and paid for, I mean real grassroots, people meeting at each other's homes, weeing how they can help one another and the less fortunate. Look at the newspapers and media coverage about those helping others!!! One of the greatest part about this new "movement" is 1)throw the bums out is the main topic of discussion 2) the Greater good is paramount and 3)a resurgence of faith, hope and character is rising up. See if there any of these groups in your area that you can help. I remember somewhere that people always said that you brighten a room when you enter it.
