No need for secession, the American people have already overthrown or threw out, at least, the worst run and malevolent government in this nation's
history and we are currently in a period of rehabilitation, which is why it is costing so much, just to get us back to even.
So much of the normal, incremental funding and support for all of the essential programs, infrastructure, education and institutions this country
holds dear, was neglected to the point of dissolution, "starving the beast", as it were, under the past administration's compassionate
That is a hole from which we have to climb out, and into which conservatives have driven the country in order force default on entitlements and
public services promised since the New Deal. They purposely made Government something to detest, the last eight years.
A government of the people should be for the people, not against itself.
Notice that the amount of the stimulus/recovery bill that passed recently was about as much in Clinton/Gore surplus dollars as the past administration
and republican congress came into office with, in 2000.
That amount, nearly a trillion dollars, most of which was spent in 10 billion dollar a month increments on the Iraq war, could have been spent in this
country and on our infrastructure, for our children and towards their future.
You will soon see how our newly elected President plans to spend his trillion in stimulus, and in desperate support of our failing middle class,
their states and the environment as a whole.
So cheer up. Those who would rather work with the new President and in the current "re-habilitation" are welcome, one and all, and it will be to the
whole country's benefit. In contrast, you might not be so welcome in one of those states currently enthralled with the idea of secession or you might
become marked as the kind of person who needs re-habilitated.
