    To put this into perspective, we could get a sig from each of the alts on Jazzfanz and not have enough.

    I'm surprised Utah is not on that list to be honest. And seeing New York and New Jersey on there made me really laugh.

    I'm sure they were filed by rednecks that moved there from Georgia.

    I see this as a far right wing response to President Obama's re-election. New Jersey and New York are left leaning states.

    Texas has over 50,000 votes so the White House has to officially repond. I hope it is along the lines of "Get Bent".

    I don't always agree with Stoked, but when I do I give rep.

    I've been saying for years they build the fence on the wrong side of that ****hole state.

    "More than 30..."

    Utah is now included in the list. I was starting to worry that our idiots were even slower than others idiots.

    Also 64k Texas signatures and counting...

    Seems some of those flag-waving, freedom lov'n real Americans don't act to kindly to losing. Funny how they only believe in democracy when their side wins. I think they should take every person's name on all the lists and round them up and send them to the state (TX) with the most signatures. They can have their own little country without any federal funding. I am sure within a few months many of them would be whining to come back.

    Maybe that was a joke, but I don't like it. That kind of talk from either side of the virtual aisle scares me cold. History is full of terrible examples of mass imprisonment and death because that kind of idea was first said jokingly, then considered, then acted on. It has never ended well for the people first 'rounded up' but it usually ends badly for the ones doing the 'rounding' too.

    There is still more that unites the left/right, dem/rep, blue/reds than divides them. But if everyone keeps up the dividing rhetoric they will divide and it will be awful for everyone.


    PS- Utah's constitution declares that Utah is inseperable from the federal union. So it doesn't even matter who signs what.
    X LIKE XENOPUS.

    I agree that it was a joke.

    However let us assume that it does start happening. One side starts rounding up the other and putting them in designated living areas. Such as Texas or California. Well that is when America is dead beyond recovery and a war will be fought. The type of war talked about in The Patriot. One that is fought amoung our homes and that our children learn about with their own eyes. Where the innocent die with the rest of us.
