    In this case for these people, "United" States just means, "Yes, we're united until I don't get to be in charge -- then I'm taking my ball and going home!"

    Bit of a histrionic reaction. It's silliness, but it still doesn't bode well.

    LOL Michigan. I guess this must be a "vote for the state with the city you like least to secede" exercise.

    I haven't followed this one or read anything about it. Was this petition started because the alleged Antichrist was reelected?

    Texas used to threaten to secede, then it went mainstream.

    Yeah. And it's all citizen-driven, it's not like it's the official political leaders of the state in question petitioning for this. So obviously it's all a kneejerk thing; they're not considering the future economies, geographic/political boundaries, trade and tax issues, survival as an independent country, and all that jazz.

    (Hmmm.... Maybe we can let Louisiana secede, then retake it by military force, and then they wouldn't get to vote on anything anymore while still being stuck with us as their governing body. Probably not what they are thinking....)

    So, any chance at all of this happening? Asks the foreigner...

    I'm reminded of Santa Cruz seperatism in Bolivia.

    Its probably some bid to become a "treasure island" like Jersey is to the rest of the UK, a tax haven, it would suit both rich people there and other rich US citizens if they were to succeed.

    All for it.
    Hope it's a trend.

    Civil war?

    The battle lines would be drawn differently...it wouldn't end in the same way...
