Wrabbit, I had to comment on your reply, of course these political things are always going to be biased.
I doubt very seriously if any states are going to secede from a few signing a petition. Texas has about 100,000 signatures but the state is home to 25
million people. Thats a very small amount. In addition what I was reading was saying that a state can't just withdraw from the union, there has to
actually be war, as in civil war. I doubt very seriously if 100,000 people are going to be able to invoke a civil war that the other 24.9 million
aren't going to be able to win.
Majority rules and 24.9 million people are being silent right now, there is a reason for this.
The 100,000 that signed the texas petition are mostly the wealthy and business owners, and those that manage businesses. They are basically saying
they want to seperate from the union and keep thier slaves how ever they see fit.
Anytime you work for an employer, full time that doesn't afford you enough compensation to afford the following, you are basically getting ripped of,
and for lack of a better term you are a SLAVE.
Rent. Food. Health insurance. Car, Car insurance. Gas. Clothing. Toiletries.
Most employers at this point pay enough for rent and food and toiletries, and screw the rest.
Employers have taken advantage of a protected system that has defended the practice of enslaving innocent people since the dawn of time. As an
example, when minimum wage would be raised to give the slaves some relief, almost instantly, all businesses would jack up their prices to compensate
for the change, basically causing the slave to not realize any relief.
I know this to be a fact as I have lived through enough depressions and seen enough wage increases that started out for me back when minimum wage was
around $3.00 an hour. It's the same story every time, there would be a wage increase and it would be followed by a quck change of everything else
around us so that almost no change is realized.
Businesses refuse to allow their profit margin be hampered with all at the expense of enslaving people.
