      I didn't live through it, but it's a topic that I've given more than a casual glance to. McCarthy was on a witch hunt to make a name for himself. The funny thing is...had what he did been done some 20 years later, the investigation would have turned up the actual results he was looking for. In a way, he was a man ahead of his time. Of course this being a free country, unless you're a conservative, a Christian or worst of all, both in which case you're also an intolerant biggot, it doesn't matter whether or not you're a communist. Even they have rights of freedom of speech here.

      I'm looking forward from seceding from the union of the states and the wickedness the United States of America stands for today. That day comes when the Savior returns in the sky for us, and we get to experience our true citizenship, our citizenship in heaven. Watching prophetic events assures me that He is not going to be much longer.




      My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
      For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.


      Baruch haba b'Shem Yahweh!!

        As much as I would like to jump on the idea of the secession movement, I really think in the end its a bad idea.

        Suppose this country did break up in to say three separate nations. Whats there to say for example that citizens in the Northeast and the Pacific Coast make develop foreign relations say with Russia or China? Invite foreign troops in because they don't like the other nation that came into being that is strongly influenced by Texas Republic values? Suppose such a nation like this would be strongly still supportive of Israel? What would happen then? What would Iran or other nations that currently are enemies of the United States, what would they do?

        Any movement to break up the United States would be costly, produce civil war, and likely be destructive to not people here, but all over the world.

          Not that I think these petitions will change anything, but it's fun to participate and watch.

          Arkansas was added, and now GA and SC have double petitions. We're up to 20 states:

          LA TX AL NC FL KY GA MS IN MT ND NJ OR CO NY SC MI TN MO AR

            If anything, this is a slap in the face of "O". I wonder if he would even care.

              They're giving it coverage on Fox News now...

              Apparently the White House is encouraging people to participate. (Go ahead, identify me. Make my day! )

              Texas is getting close to the minimum signatures needed, Fox reports.

                Back in 2008 a Russian analyst predicted the imminent financial collapse of the US, with massive civil unrest, resulting in the breakup of the country into 6 regions that would be controlled or absorbed by other countries. It didn't happen when he thought it would, but maybe it really is going to happen?

                  Hope not. In that scenario, the Ruskie indicated that Russia would get Alaska. Don't think I'd ever be ready for that.

                      Drudge Report had an article on the fact that Texas reached 25,000 signatures. After reading the article, I moved on down to the comment section. Lots of people saying it was a bad idea, that it would lead to civil wars, etc. Someone even said that these motions to secede were cases of sour grapes gone too far. That we were all sore losers that "our guy" lost. It has nothing to do with sour grapes or any of the reasons people were suggesting. It has everything to do with the fact that by the end of the next four years, America will be completely unrecognizable (if we even exist at all). Texas has the resources to be self sustaining and if other states were to secede, those nations would help sustain one another. Maybe I am living in a dream world, but I think there are enough people in this country fed up with the state of affairs that they would do whatever they had to in order to maintain some sense of normalcy and responsibility. I think the next few months are going to be verrrrrryyyyy interesting...

                          Maybe this is why America is not mentioned kn the end times. Because there is no formal America anymore. Interesting

                            Nevada just petitioned, so 24 now.

                            The White House has to answer petitions with at least 25,000 siggies by a certain date, so then what? They just say no, you can't leave?

                              Nothing will come of these citizens' petitions just like nothing happened last time.

                              It might relieve some excess energy after the election but it will peter out soon.

                              America is not breaking up. Only Texas can secede but she won't.
