Will not ever happen.
This topic is somewhat tied to our right to bear arms. You want to try and secede from the Union by all means give it a go. Then when the full force of the military comes down on you and all you have are the weapons you have been legally been allowed to purchase we'll see where you stand. Talk about bringing a knife to a gun fight...
At least in that situation you can see your killer, with the way our military is equipped now you'll be dead before you ever realize youre being targeted.
Not to mention that before Junior? A centrist democrat from Arkansas not only balanced the budget, something they fail to do over and over again, but did it while being "serviced" by an intern or two. Talk about adding insult to injury. Doesn't that deserve some sympathy?
Obama is like Jay Wilson, he took these social programs and doubled it!! More purchasing variety with ebt, data on your phone and best of all, no requirements to receive these things.
You maybe right, i live in florida and we maybe an ebt friendly state. Cant speak for other states.
What obama did is great, someone has to pay for these things though. The people paying are the ones against these policies, thats the issue. Making them pay more for services they arent entitled to is insane. Id be on ebt if i could, i see people in line getting the same damn sub as me on ebt. Its not fair to make someone pay for things they arent allowed to use, especially when they are paying the bulk.
"If you have something to say, by all means, say it. "
is messing around joking right? Actually i do have something to say to you, i cant stand the packers, they sucked until the "real" refs came back. Temps werent smart enough to fix games apparently :P

Don't worry though, thanks to the republicans throwing such a fit over Obama, we've got a "fiscal cliff" coming that will soon put big dents in those entitlements... Almost like they thought they would be in charge by then or something. Well, except for the big entitlements like Social Security and Medicare of course. Plus all the taxes will go back to what they were under the guy having fun with cigars and interns. Downright karmic how the republicans keep on reaping what they themselves were sowing.

I think this whole thing is WAY overblown. There are around 315 million US citizens. The most any state has that signed this is 7000? That's 7 out of every 315,000 people. You could get more people to sign a pledge to beat up Justin Beiber.
Hehe... There is even a petition too: "Assist with reinstating Scott "The Torg" Torgerson back on the air at 97.1 The FAN, an ESPN Radio affiliate in Columbus."

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." -Paul Krugman
Anyone know? And this is a serious question. What are red states using federal funding for...because it isn't, at least compaired to blue states, welfare.
Wait, nevermind, I found it...allot of the federal funding are for farms, NASA, Social Security (retires generally migrate South), etc, etc. So yea, I guess if you want to be technical Red States do pull more federal funds / per capita than Blue states do but when you break down what the funding is for you may find that you sing a different tune.

I think I've heard about Texans wanting to break away from the US for the last 30 years....and it looks like the movement has gained about zero momentum in that time.

I think most people see the point...the excuss of pulling more federal funds while true has no basises for what they are using it for which is to make red states look incompetent.

It could be that blue states tend to have a larger population, and therefore pay out more money in welfare. There's also the fact that the blue states tend to have a much better safety net, which is more expensive.
But red states, in general, have a much higher percentage of their population under the poverty line - see http://www.census.gov/compendia/stat...ks/rank34.html
