    There would be a civil war within the state if the attempt was made. This isn't the 1860s anymore and too many of the "red states" are much too dependent of the federal government to ever consider leaving the union. Plus the United States would demand a refund from any state that tried to leave. Pay up or shut up.

    All this secession nonsense is just a bunch of sore losers using modern technology to voice their discontent at being on the losing side. I signed a counter-petition myself which is something that wasn't even a possibility just a short decade ago.

    The folks having fun at playing "secessionist" need a reminder that they're the ones dividing the country, not the POTUS. There is division in this country but it's between idiocy and sanity and wealth and stagnation. And sane Americans have finally begun pushing back against the batshits and the überwealthy. They aren't used to being challenged and it's freaking them out big time. I'd rather have them sign useless petitions than take to the streets.

    Did you remember to water the fuchsia?
