and here's why....
We all love Abe Lincoln, right?
Set the slaves free...
Good old honest abe?
Well, once he took a look at the situation during the civil war, he decided to go ahead and make one of those infamous executive decisions that often
went against the constitution. Would you like to know what it was?
He made cessation from the Union of the United states Illegal. That's right, ladies and gentlemen, the south shall not rise again, because it's
illegal for them to do so!
So, Loki, why do you sound so bitter about this, you may ask.
Well, I'll tell you that If there were to be say, some sort of revolution, where people decided they were tired of living in the united states, the
way that it works...they couldn't to dick about it.
How can you change a country when 'change it' isn't on the ballot?
That's what we've all failed to realize here. we've been duped into believing that we hold the power, when really we are standing here holding
nothing but a crappy job. There's not ballot item for 'I vote we kick that motha #a out the white house'. There's not ballot item for "Stop
looking for war in the middle east". There's not ballot item for "I move that this state be let out of the union, and allowed to make our own #
many of you think I'm ramblin here, which I am...to a certain extent...
But I think that it would be good for the us to have a good split again. sometimes, it's good to get some thing straightened out. Am I saying we need
a revolution? probably not, but I think that the option should be there. Can't very well be a revolution if we can't secceed, nor get on national TV
since our speech will be censored.
So, to answer your question, MarsUpial, no, nobody's going to secceed anytime soon.
