Not Independent or Green or Libertarian but

The third party to rise will be the States Rights party. It is the ONLY belief that can unite left, right and center. States want to succede, grow pot and do their own thing whether its liberal or conservative.

State's Rights Party.

Oh, great idea

I'm sure THAT party won't get co-opted or shunned into obscurity, that's just all those *other* parties throughout history!

Some of you guys are well-intended, but jump headfirst into every little "fight da powah" movement there is, no matter how ridiculous. I've already made my feelings clear as to why I feel that this whole online petition thing is nonsense in another thread, so I won't again.

Personally, I have no issue with it, but thus far it feels like more of the same old secession talk I heard in 2008, 2004, and as far back as I can recall.

Not trying to be a downer, but I've seen so many petitions on whitehouse.gov get completely ignored, even when the support is overwhelming. Remember when there was a petition to remove the TSA on there? Got tons of sigs, but the WH basically told people that they "needed" the TSA, but they just didn't "realize" it. So yeah, good luck.

Rather than focus on states seceding from the union, why not focus on INDIVIDUALS seceding from the state?

States don't have rights,

States don't have rights, people have rights.
It may just seem like semantics to some but if we want to awaken minds I think we should be careful to make sure we do it with a complete & accurate principle so as not to trade one tyranny for another.

I Agree...

...but I thought you said secede instead of succeed. My bad.

Neat idea, it will be tough for liberals

I like the idea.

Liberals, in my experience, seem to have a tough time understanding the benefits of more local government. Even in my very liberal Massachusetts where we have gay marriage, universal corporate care, misdemeanor cannibis, the liberals don't seem to value that they are more successful achieving their goals here than at the national level.

Progressives should love this I think, but they don't seem to get it. Some might say it is a desire for more mastery, but in my experience they haven't even thought it through.

In fact, much of political facebook post, for example, are mostly about tidying up mistakes people make about what the federal govt does vs the state and city. e.g., if you are against Obama than you hate school teachers and the like.

BUMP for secession

good post! Maybe even a bit better would be to denounce the notion that rulemakers and moralizers in one area under a long established political umbrella can possibly 'represent' the rights and/or protect the property of anyone other than themselves and some few who maneuver their preferred version of 'society' into the dictates of these few who pull the strings of an unlimited purse stripped from the backs of the very people it purports to 'represent' and 'protect'.

States' rights are an improvement, recognizing the sovereignty of EVERY individual is fair, moral, and humane!

Thank you!!!
