North New York? New Texas? Works For Me.

Although small, the secessionist movement in various states across the Union is growing. Voters have disconnected from their previous political ties and want new states in which they may exercise their rights as guaranteed under the Constitution.
GREELEY, Colo. -- If you mention the word "secession" most people think of the South during the Civil War. But today, a new movement is gaining steam because of frustration over a growing, out-of-control federal government.

A number of conservative, rural Americans are taking about seceding and creating their own states, meaning a new map of the United States of America could include the following:

A 51st state called Jefferson, made up of Northern California and Southern Oregon
A new state called Western Maryland
A new state called North Colorado

These are real movements gaining traction with voters across the country. Jeffrey Hare runs the 51st State Initiative in Colorado, an effort to fight an out-of-control legislature trying to ram big government policies down the throats of voters.
Here in New York there are murmurs of a secessionist movement. Many people have had it with Cuomo and the Albany liberals who have driven almost twenty Congressional seats out of the state due to residents moving away. What was once a beautiful state is gradually turning into another liberal wasteland. Detroit, here we come.
Creating a new state isn't easy. The last time a state actually gave up territory was in 1820, when Maine split from Massachusetts. Since then, additional efforts have been unsuccessful.

The first step is getting it passed by the state legislature and then the U.S. Congress.

"This is a valid constitutional process that our founding fathers specifically wrote into the Constitution," Hare said. "Well, if they didn't write this into the Constitution to be used, then why did they write it in?"

Obama - who touted himself as "the great uniter", who is known far and wide as a fraud and huckster who relies on race baiting as his stock in trade, has another victory with people who would rather simply leave --- without leaving.

It's going to come to it one way or the other.

Have you read about 91 million are out of work and aren't even looking.

That's 58% of the eligible work force.

We have a 58% unemployment rate.

How many tax payers want to continue to pay to have these losers sitting around breeding democrats ?

Northern California should be on this list, also. We are one with southern Oregon.

Tax rate on a new country would be just awful. We're used to so many things we could not have in a new state. Do you know what a B-1 bomber costs? What would you do if South Alaska attacked North California?
