I never said that the Supreme Court took away state national sovereignty, because the constitution itself did that. The Supreme Court interprets the legality of union acquisitions. Texas and Hawaii have the best shot at seceding in court, but not because all states have that right. I take no offense at being called common, since we're the only way your "movement" could possibly go anywhere. If you elitists think obscure loopholes are going to pass legislation, you're kidding yourself.

United States of America is not the Sovereign States of America. You're living in a fantasy world, and so this was never a fair debate.

Your video only proves that you should wear a foil wig under your tricorne hat. There aren't any lies in my posts, but maybe it's wrong to disagree with an elitist. I would love to see a free and independent Cascadia, but it's illegal. Case closed. Good luck fighting a losing battle for all states, when you should just focus on Texas, the one that actually has a shot.

First, I didn't know it was your video. Second, I have no need to go over the petty semantics that make your cause a pipe-dream. I'm not talking out of my ass, the states aren't sovereign. Call your governors office and ask him if he runs a sovereign nation. I'll wait, continuing to be wrong until your brilliant logic spreads to the federal government.

I hope you get your wish of secession. It's going to beautiful to see the very next day you become North Mexico. You thought you have an illegal immigration problem. Wait until secession. It's going to be beautiful.

I hope it dosent come down to state secession for I think that would cause more division and ultimately more problems. States would become countries and then it would be country against country just like everywhere else in the world. If anything, dissolve all the state lines and make it one, united nation, make English our national language and bring our people under one flag.

Why wait for the states? Citizens of all states should start by boycotting the machine whereever possible. Defund the institutions that keep us all slaves to the tyrannical government. Plant your own seeds, go solar wherever possible, CHANGE THE CHANNEL. Do you realize there are MILLIONS of federal employees??? MILLIONS, think about that. Do you know of any company with MILLIONS of employees and makes you wait in line for hours to BUY something from them? (apple cult excluded) Think about it.

agreed, however my point is that this two party clusterfuck of a system has roots so deep down into all levels of government that getting anything reasonable accomplished on the side of liberty will not be with the approval of state legislators and votes. I think it has to be on an individual level en masse and across what is left of this nation, maybe even watering the ol liberty tree if necessary. i see no feasible way to fix this nation with the obstructionists and the ignorant masses

anyone who wants to continue on the path we are on or accept the status quoe is truly lost, regardless of how much of the population they represent. i know of many people who would love for the monstrosity that our federal government has become grind to a halt. hit the reset button… let the FEMA loving people and the bleeding heart liberals in the inner cities reep what they have sown when the mechanism grinds to a screeching halt and the misunderstood poor eat them for dinner, scorpion & frog

and you seem a nad deformed and idealy nativistic… are you a paid government cybertroll or a goose stepping conformist? either way, no one does buwahahahaha anymore… imagine how awkward it would have been standing next to you in independence hall back during the declaration… i would say, "he's not with me, i didn't bring this guy".

NJ, CT, NY, MD, CA, Michigan… all bastions of liberal dystopia and no rights… I know, I lived in NJ and until I moved to a more free state I never even realized how oppressive the state was towards my liberties… i thought it was a cool place to live until I found out it's really not a sin to make a u-turn and that criminals and cops should not be the only gun owners…

Judging by your first claim that NC is "very under developed" I know from the start that you know nothing of North Carolina so I don't hold much credence in your claim that "99% would strongly disagree". I was born and raised here and lived here all my life and have seen NC's growth first hand. I wished you were right and it was under developed down here, quite frankly I am sick of all the growth and I'd say the "progress" hasn't been for the better. But the fact is NC isn't going to secede.

Bubba Dewy

I'll make a deal with you then: take the "pure blue" libtard faggots and moochers of those North Carolina cities to where ever the fuck you are and we'll both be happier for it. Most of that trash isn't from North Carolina to begin with and we were better off without them. Take all the fucking scumbag foreigners and the fucking mutts with them while you are at it. The majority of the pricks in this state on handouts are in those god damned "blue zones" and we'd be better off without them.

yeah that's me, small town sheltered dipshit that's been pushed around, you are an intellectual giant, crushing foes like grapes… get real dude… take the stupid dog avatar down and the nametags on those soldiers you toss off to probably wouldn't appreciate you out here acting like… whatever the fuck you are doing… you don't even pass as a decent troll… you can't even make me mad… FAIL

most free states? now I know you are a troll… tollbooths every 500 yards and outrageous car insurance rates are freedom to you? and I made a lot more money than you when I lived there, i never had to join the army and take showers with dudes after playing macho knob gobble games in little uniforms… you seem too homophobic for a democrat, attack the US every chance you get and threaten people for being anti american… calling people you never met "unathletic" who even does that? wow… silly

LMFAO, who you trying to impress you fake ass internet tough guy? NC was doing just fine 30 years ago from what I can recall. We had functioning industry and it was thriving because so many companies from up north were were moving down here to get away from high taxation, over regulation and labor unions up north. We had thriving textile, furniture industries and solid agriculture back then as well till carpet baggers and scallywag "progressives" attempted to make things more like the north.

Bubba Dewy

Do you live in North Carolina? Have you lived in North Carolina at least 40 years? Were you born and raised in North Carolina? Simple yes or no questions: please answer bitch.

Bubba Dewy

LMFAO, since when did they let internet tough guy/hermaphrodites like you become Jarheads? And again why you trying so hard to impress? Slick Willie ran the real men and war heros out of the officer's corps about 20 years ago in favor of sell outs and one world traitors spooge breath. Given the left's hatred of wealth and efforts to redistribute wealth from those who earned it into the hands of moochers why would the wealthy see themselves as liberals idiot?

Bubba Dewy
Guest

You are a fake ass son of a bitch, claiming to be a real out doors man and environmentalist now after all the bitching and nagging about lack of paved roads, fiber optics and lack of population growth here in NC. You sound like the kinda hermaphrodite that looks at a forest and wonders why there isn't a housing project or strip mall built there. Our founders may have been "progressives" in their own times but how ever the progressives of today's time look to piss on everything they created.

pissed off at the "winners of life" (what does that even mean)? that is a very long line; i am completely liking the secession idea. the us has become degraded to a level of chaos and corruption that requires a truel, imperial status. have always felt the civil war was a disastrous error of lincoln's. southern slavery was going to collapse, although it continues to thrive under other names. preservation of the union was his emphasized motive, hollywood notwithstanding. i say, break it up.

dax
Guest

and preservation of the union was his emphasized motive anyway. a union founded and preserved as much by genocide as innovation. for real, it's time to dismantle this lumbering monster.

Bubba Dewy

LMFAO… again, trying to impress. What the fuck are you looking for a date? I don't get down like that! And your futile attempts at attempting to be an internet tough guy really do no credit to your arguments, although neither do your lack of intelligence or your failure to make a logical point. Your attempts to rely on bogus statistics as a source of reference are every bit as weak as your attempts to prove you know anything about NC, your attempts to impress or intimidate. You fail!

Bubba Dewy
Guest

Quote your useless statistics all you want, I'd wager you've probably never even been to NC where as I was born here and lived here my most of my life. I know exactly how this state has changed over the years and need no statistics to back what I know for fact. We had thriving industry and agriculture here till "progressive" liberal economic and political policies at local state & federal levels ruined industry not only here but around the US in general.

Bubba Dewy
Guest

I am the delusional one? You are the one that intermittently laces bullshit statistics in with silly personal insults and hollow threats which by the way is the first indicator that you are incapable of intelligent/adult conversation. Then you boast about wealth and physical superiority and your self proclaimed intellectual superiority. Again, who the fuck are you trying to impress? Now you claim I am "ANTI FREEDOM" and "ANTI AMERICAN" LMFAO?! At what point have I come across as "Anti freedom"?

Fuck no not doing that agina we move forward let not break up the Union. Abut why in some parts. Main reason why people want to break away it just sore loser thing abut the fucking 2012nd elections.

Why is it when Democrats are in the minority we never hear a peep about secession? Growing up, one could always identify the sore loser who would have problems later in life by how often he threatened to take his ball and go home.
