you must have voted for obama.....it seems to me that alot of obamamites are a bunch of nasty rude negative people. tx isnt a bunch of whiny-ass, sore losers. they made a choice and are going with it. you dont have to agree with it or for that matter even understand it but it goes to show your playground mentality of a 5 yr old. and we wonder why our country is in such a mess..GOD HELP US!

You assume wrong.

They are the ones with the playground mentality "The election didn't go our way so we want to take our ball and go home". How are these people with their petitions any different than people like Alec Baldwin who threatened to leave the country if Dubya was re-elected?

If Cali had tried to secede when Dubya was in office the right would bash them more than they already do, which is quite a bit.

I prefer staying and working to make things better but if they want to go, let em.

thats the great part of this country you have the CHOICE to do as you want.  ever think they just dont like where this is country is going..that doesnt mean they love this country any less. they have the right to do what they think is right for them. since when is deciding that whats in your best interest is directly related to that of U.S and you cant do anything about it? im not sure of anything with this country anymore. i have lived in ca my entire life and i dont like what its become. and i have the right to move elsewhere if i chose to do so. that doesnt make me a whiny ass loser because i could do so much better elsewhere. it means i looked at my options and decided something. so be it they want to do this then good for them. surrender

Making President Obama look more like Lincoln everyday.  I really hope no one attempts to harm him or his family.

I never said they don't have that right or choice but, IMO, running away like that is weak. I have the right to believe and state that. If one really loves their country they would try to stay and fix things until they had to sneak out the back door to get away from the Nazi's(thinking of Sound of Music, Dad obviously loved Austria and only left when he felt his and his families lives were at risk.)

Trying to secede because they didn't get their way sounds more like a tantrum than rational people trying to fix their country, to me.
