So OP, do you live in any of these states?

Do you know which ones? This is insane, btw. Even if it's just a public show of disapproval with the election, it's definitely not showing the world a united front.

I am in one of the states that wishes to succeed and I would move to another state before that happens. It's stupid.

They are opening their mouths and making legal petitions. You don't agree with them, so you are being ugly and saying "get out"! Since when, in America, do we tell people to leave that they shouldn't be American, just because we don't agree with them? They are speaking out without riots, without pillaging, and without war. So how exactly does freedom of speech work now? Last I checked, it was there to protect people from being abused and shut up by people like you-just because you don't agree with them.

i didn't assume a thing...i simply said if people are not happy with it, get out and open your mouth too!!  Sitting in your house complaining on the internet isn't doing any good to move things in a different direction.  


Quoting mom2ljh:

Why assume all conservatives are complaining? Some of us understand what it means to live in a democracy and that, though disappointing, your candidate does not always win.





Quoting Anonymous:

then those who are opposed should get out there an open their  mouths too!!!! Dont just sit there and complain!!



Quoting mom2ljh:

A single outspoken extremist and those who sign these petitions don't speak for all residents of these states.

I don't know why people are getting all riled up about this. Secession is not going to happen. The people signing the petitions are just trying to make a point; the petitions are just a gesture and a symbol of how people are fed up with the way things are and the way they're going.

No, I haven't signed any petitions. I'm in Pennsylvania and there's no way people in THIS state would ever consider seceding! I should add, I'm not originally from here. I'm from SC which is one of the states petitioning to secede.

Are you sure about  these? I haven't heard anything and I live in Detroit. And that doesn't make sense anyway, we as a state voted democratic.

there is NO freedom of speech anymore and one does NOT have the right to remain silent...i personally witnessed an attack on my dh for refusal to say anything to police...he was also NOT allowed legal representation, either, in the pig station.  Many people are purposefully 'shut up' with the use of excessive force, and false police reports filed...i've seen it over and over and over and over and over and over........

Okay I live in Pennsylvania and I have to say it surprises me to see PA on the list. Pennsylvania has ALWAYS been liberal. As I said earlier, I'm not originally from here; I'm from SC. Then again, the way the state voted in the election last week, the only areas that went blue were Pittsburgh and Philly. If it weren't for those two highly populated areas, we would have gone red.
