Could the Carolinas secede in wake of Obama's re-election?
Could North Carolina and South Carolina secede from the Union again? New petitions posted on the White House's website are stirring the debate with thousands of supporters in favor of the movement. In less than 48 hours, more than 4,700 people have signed a petition asking the Obama Administration to allow South Carolina to secede. A separate petition for North Carolina already has more than 7,200 signatures. North Carolina and South Carolina are among 21 states with active petitions on the White House website seeking secession.The comments are very revealing. The antis have nothing but insults in their quiver. All they can do is scream that support for self-government is evidence of "treason" and, oh yes, "racism." Can't say as I blame them - how do you defend an authoritarian government that claims the power to launch wars, imprison its dissidents, and even execute its citizens at will? Name-calling is all the defenders of empire have left. Face it: The news is out. DC has lost its legitimacy.
