At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.

The lady asked, "Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?"

"A republic," replied Dr. Franklin, "if you can keep it."

All This Talk of Secession

Map h/t Race

Apparently secession fever has taken hold in a country. You'll note the areas of the nation in "blue" voted for Obama and four more years of ObamaNationalism. The "red" areas voted for Governor Romney.

And the choice was very well defined. As a result, all fifty states have petitions circulating with citizens requesting that their state be released from the United States to go it alone as a free and independent nation.
By 6:00 a.m. EST Wednesday, more than 675,000 digital signatures appeared on 69 separate secession petitions covering all 50 states, according to a Daily Caller analysis of requests lodged with the White House’s “We the People” online petition system. (Daily Caller)
Is it sour grapes, or are conservatives finally fed up with liberals? If they had voted, Obama would be on his way out of office. And since they didn't vote, they must not have minded him THAT much.

Just look at Texas...I believe over a dozen military instillation and thousand of federal government organizations that they would loose if the pulled a secession. This is just a bunch of hotheads showing their displeasure of the statuesque.

95% of the black vote went for Obama and an equally high number of hispanics. When you realize that most of these are on welfare and have free cell phones, it is easy to see how cheaply Obama bought those votes.

Cheap for HIM, but they'll soon have to take MY social security to ensure these people keep getting their 'free money'.

And, with their larger families soon having children of voting age, I see no reason why I should bother showing up early at the polls ever again....if I live another 4 years.

I will show up early at the polls year after year. I am NOT giving up on America.
