Countless numbers of liberals, including many two-bit celebrities, promised to move out of the USA in 2004 and 2008. Unfortunately, as with most liberals, they never follow through on their promises.

Secession is a joke issue. There will be no secession. Who cares if 25,000 people sign a petition? Out of how many million in most states? Filling empty space because we don't have a campaign starting for hopefully a year anyway.

obamafone4me: "Countless numbers of liberals, including many two-bit celebrities, promised to move out of the USA in 2004 and 2008. Unfortunately, as with most liberals, they never follow through on their promises." I notice Rush Limbaugh is still here. BTW, why do you feel the need to speak in such absolutes: "liberals...never follow through on their promises"?? That sounds so inaccurate and makes your comments sound petty and trite. Add some substance now and again and leave out much of the abject rancor, and you will sound more reasonable.

With the electorate so evenly divided and so deeply polarized, we are all frightened when our candidates lose. I don’t know if it has always been this way, but it has since I was old enough to vote and it has continued on. One thing I do know is that conservatives/Republicans are probably sick at the idea that we will decay into a 3rd world country; that they truly believe that 50% of all Americans live off of the government; that changes in social laws will result in god’s wrath toward this country. But in terms of leaving liberals can consider Canada, Europe, and Mexico where there is universal healthcare. I think the conservatives have a fewer places to choose from.

Hmmm. The writer counters petitions with tens of thousands of signatures on them, with anecdotes of a half-dozen talking heads and celebrities. A commenter describes this half-dozen as "countless". The conservative bubble is getting more and more absurd as the inhabitants frantically beat back reality.

I don't like secessionist or self-deportation talk from either side. It's a cop out and it makes me sick. If you don't like what's going on, stick around and work to make it better.

It's so typical of wingers to turn a handful of lib's informal comments about seceding into the equivalent of 150,000 signatures of conservatives .Sorry, but this boat doesn't sail!! The author of this piece insults our intelligence with such tripe.
