How could they possibly survive as a sovereign state...

without the American tax dollars that they are among the states most dependent on?

I don't play, I commission the league.

From what I've read that's

From what I've read that's due to mainly to defense spending (smaller army, however, equals smaller bills) and retirement- not to mention welfare. Regardless, it's time to get weaned!

maids at your hotel want to peacefully secede and take a room

That's how the federal government views it when a state (some people) want to secede.

Welcome to the Hotel USA

You can check in any time you like, but you can never leave....

Signing this petition will do

Signing this petition will do nothing except put your name on a terrorist watch list. A government agent might have created it for bait.

Good Point

Who would ask the GOVERNMENT for something the government would fight tooth and nail against? The STATES need to decide!

skippy

They should be petitioning the Alabama state legislature.

Not the White House. Comment below got it right. What has the White House got to do with it? Petition the legislature!

White House Petition

Congratulations for signing up to the kill list.

And even if it got enough votes, some bean counter at the White House would just remind everyone about the Civil War in some long paragraphed statement.

As an Alabamian I would like to say

That Dixie-Paleocon hit the nail on the head below with this comment...

"Alabama and Auburn most likely wouldn't be allowed to compete in the NCAA if that happened. That alone would cause 80% of Conservatives to withdraw their support of secession regardless if how bad things hot in this country."

Here, football is much (MUCH) more important to most people than politics. Sad to say, but it's true. During the fall I consider muself to be a football widow, though my husband is more awake than most are here.

We can consider those

international games. lol. But you are completely right. And it not just about football as it is the revenue from the games. Alabama packs around 101k and Auburn 98k. And if your husband is awake and a huge college football fan, that makes him twice as awesome.lol

WDE!

Yes he is!

We had to go to Tuscaloosa today (from Talladega county) for a birthday party and it drove him nuts to be that close but not there. LOL Alabama's loss today was more significant to him than who won on Tuesday so he's getting there. We went to Tampa to see Dr Paul and we also attended Paulfest while we were there... it was a huge help in opening his eyes.

I didn't think about them being international games but as long as the game can continue it may be possible!

Really? You people are stupid!

There is no commment needed. Thanks again Alabamy for showing how stupid people can be!!!

Unfortunately

I am actually somewhat scared to sign this just because of who inhabits the white house now. He has an enemy list that would make Nixon seem friendly.

But yeah, The Nation of Texas Ministry of keeping Californians and other Idiots out (TKCIO) would be pretty sweet. Utah and Texas/Southeast would be pretty good together.

But.....

if Alabammy leaves the union...they won't get their ObummerCare and even more importantly their free obummer government issued I phones. Plus, I just don't see all those sweet homies giving up their free condoms!

they don't need it!

i would guess the good people of alabama could sustain themselves very well, thank you!

especially if all they had to worry about was alabamians...

Angie

I was just about respond to that nonsense. Funny how some think they know but open their mouths to prove their foolishness.

Alabama gets a bad rap, I know...

But I think it's because the most ignorant among us seem to provide the most entertainment for people on the outside looking in, so news crews tend to gravitate towards those people. :)

I love the idea

but over the past 100 years the States have taken SO MUCH Federal aid and other funding that I suspect they couldn't even begin to secede until they repaid or started turning away all Federal grants, loans, and other misc funds. In essence they are financially trapped by debt similar to how most all Amerikans are now trapped in debt to the FED and international bankers.

But MAN would I LOVE to see something like this gain traction.

I don't want to live here no more. I don't wanna stay. Ain't gonna spend the rest of my life...quietly fading away.

Repudiate

States and nations have a long history of debt repudiation. The people of Alabama are no more obligated to pay debt to the Fed than the people of any poor nation are obligated to repay the IMF for large loans that went into dictactors' swiss bank accounts. Plunder and indebtedness is no cause for a creditor to rule a debtor, and vast majority of the people of every single state were just going about their lives while the corrupt politicians of a broken and amoral system sold their earnings into bondage. No government, state or federal, has any debt on my behalf, because I have never agreed to pay for their spending. The people of Alabama were, as free people, not born into debt, and having not participated in its accrual, are not liable. I don't care how many laws the military-industrial complex buys to say otherwise.
