"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence."
— George Washington
"Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it."
— Mark Twain
"You want to get rid of drug crime in this country? Fine, let's just get rid of all the drug laws."
— Ron Paul
So, take your fake outrage and stuff it. Try answering one of the questions instead of pretending outrage because you think you've been called, gasp, a socialist. Of course, people such as yourself and your hero in the White House are big on the concepts of "you people" and "my people".
So, you actually think the megalomaniac in the White House, who thinks of himself as President Lincoln, won't start a war to keep his 57 states intact?
What do you think the carpetbaggers will do? Leave their homes and flee north. Actually, some southern meth freaks might head north to keep the "entitlements" flowing. I doubt the free states will continue bogus SSI dependence. But, the yankees that have bought homes in the sunbelt. What will they do?
And the businesses who have moved their headquarters to Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, and other cities in the South. What will they do? Will they move back to Illinois, Massachusetts, Connecticut?

Oh, but you are--do you even know what the word means, it's not an epithet. And the ad hom is unimpressively not an argument.Well...that's because we're not socialists, but I just didn't see the point in trying to explain the difference to the terminally stupid.
The list I gave you are those who want to secede. The link was presented earlier, just in case you missed it, here: ]15 States including Texas have filed a petition to secede from the United States.No...no, actually, I thnik most of those can go; with the exception of new York, and I would dispute that New York, Colorado, or Florida will will go with you.
Like I said, you've confused this with the war of northern aggression. Historisits tent to confuse the past with the present.
Liberty and Freedom? How about freedom of religion? I'm an atheist but I still find the attack on religion irritating. How about the prohibition on double jeopardy? Remember the cops in the Rodney King case. There was a time where you could be tried for a crime only once. How about property rights? The eminent domain decision saying the government "use" could be no more than another property owner will pay more taxes and there is the ever popular, with the government, civil seizures. How about equal protections under the law? Racial discrimination makes a joke of equal protection as does, in my opinion, the gay marriage issue. How about the right to a fair trial and a president, a trained lawyer no less, who announces publicly that an accused man will be found guilty and will get the harshest penalty possible? He really does think he's a king.
And how about all the muttering about the Constitution not being the law of the land but being a "living document" that means whatever the liberals want it to mean. Have you actually found abortion in the Constitution? What does that do for the rights of the unborn babies or even some babies born and smothered, a practice President Obama voted to keep legal.
