The governors of these states know they are welfare states, sucking on the teet of the federal government, so there is no way they will ever secede.
Then why are all the blue states massively in debt?
And most of the money to red states is mandated by the federal government, not because those citizens actually want the government's handouts.notyou2 wrote:I believe most of them can't stand the thought of another 4 years of a black man as president. It's not that they hate democrats, or liberals, they don't like an African American as their commander in chief. They are behaving like the whiny child, a bunch of spoiled brats and sore losers.
How shallow are your beliefs that you would care about the color of a person's skin over the content of their character or the policy positions they take?
As shallow as generations of slave owners in your country..
We currently live in the 21st century, not the 19th century. None of us today are responsible for the actions that took place then, yet the people who continue to blame every disagreement with Obama as being due to race are completely responsible for their own racist views.
I don't think that everyone who wants to secede only wants to secede because Obama is black, but you also can't deny that there are quite a few who base at least some their politics off of racism.
