    Utah secession petition reaches over 8,000

    In the spirit of the secession movement, I decided to take a look at how many Utahns might think it's a good idea.
    Apparently over 8,000 do, and I just added myself to the petition. How would it be my friends?
    Federally ceased lands fully restored to the citizens, no more wasting of tax funds, no more federally imposed drug laws, and an easier to control local government no longer dependent on federal charity funds with massive interest attached.
    Most importantly.... no more manipulative private federal reserve bankers deciding the very fate of our economy.
    Thoughts??

    Zulu reminds me of someone tougher.

    Who cares.

    But I would really like it if someone of the opposition would actually post in this thread, considering I like differing points of political view.
    Without the Wes Manfranklin type jabbering though please.

    OK, no. I am glad that only 8,000 peopel have signed this petition. Secession is a bad idea. Let us say that Utah did seceed. Then what? Would they become a theocracy? Keep in mind 66% of Utah is Mormon. Would there be a new call to Zion?

    There are other factors to consider like being compeltely landlocked by the country you just abandoned. You have no access to international waters. Hell you have to make treaties just to get people able to fly in as they come thru US airspace.

    I'm not a secessionist per se so I wouldn't sign, but I do think that nullification should be a common occurrence and that states' rights need to supersede the Federal government wherever possible so I am fully in line with the spirit of the movement. If not, we might as well stop having elections and just accept the fact that our "Republic" is nothing more than an undemocratic Union now, no better than the failing European Union.
