Uncivil War: One Quarter Of All Republicans Want To Secede From The U.S.

A quarter of all Republicans want their state to secede from the United States of America, according to a new poll from Public Policy Polling (PPP). The survey, taken within the past few days, finds almost one in five Republicans “aren’t sure” how they feel about seceding, but 56% do want to stay in the union.

Not that there’s really any chance of a 21st century civil war.

“One reason that such a high percentage of Republicans are holding what could be seen as extreme views is that their numbers are declining,” PPP reports. “Our final poll before the election, which hit the final outcome almost on the head, found 39% of voters identifying themselves as Democrats and 37% as Republicans. Since the election we’ve seen a 5 point increase in Democratic identification to 44%, and a 5 point decrease in Republican identification to 32%.”

Earlier today, we reported that 49% — or all but half — of all Republican voters believe ACORN stole the 2012 election for President Obama, a drop from 2008 when 52% of Republican voters believed the same.

I would rather see my state succeed, than secede.

Let's ask everyone who signed a petition to secede to "self-deport."

Preachers would be preaching to not divide and separate because it'd mean that tithing might go down. Their megachurches need all the tithes to keep the preachers floating in money. Er, I mean tithes to keep the Lord's work going.

Please, if they all would agree to move to Texas I would be willing to give them Texas. It would be so nice and plesent in the remaining 49, wouldn't it? And we need to make sure they take all their guns with them.

We need to alter the landscape so that third parties can win.

As these people used to say: America–love it or leave it!

And no, they don't get Texas or any other US land–they have to move somewhere outside the US. Maybe Antarctica would have them.
