First: A Video! With all the smoke blown about secession, it seems like fringe conservatives are being sore losers. Fringe liberals had their own freak-outs over Bush, but I don't recall secession ever being mentioned. Yet people who opposed the Patriot Act and the war with Iraq were being called anti-American by those who now don't want even want to be part of America. And let's be serious: this is about Obama. How much have gun laws changed since he was elected, that secession suddenly seems necessary whereas it wasn't a few years ago? Granted, nobody thinks the representatives talking secession are doing anything other than saying what their base wants to hear. Perhaps they could be making such threats to try to get their way, but nobody seems to be listening except their base. The only way any representative is going to be taken seriously about this, is if officials from that state attack federal officials to prevent them from carrying out their jobs, and that isn't going to happen. Making statements and signing papers does not get you out of the union. So it all seems like a tantrum thrown by folks who decisively lost an election, and now find themselves impotent and unrepresented in the government. To those wrapped up in it: remember how silly those liberals were when having hissy fits over Bush? Yeah. Now you're them.
