Nikki on: Secession

Proud to be both a North Carolinian and an American

There has been a lot of grumbling about secession since the presidential election of 2012.  All told, there are 21 states wherein citizens are demanding secession from the United States, of which 7 have reached the 25,000 signatures required for Presidential consideration (Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina).  Though this represents but a small portion of the overall sentiment of a state’s population, to think that anyone would desire to fragment our great nation and dishonor all those who have fought and died for the dream that is America is beyond my understanding.  If you disagree with the government there are so many productive ways to speak your mind and enact change without running the risk of becoming a political prisoner or being shot in a basement (as would be the case in many other countries).  All things considered, I’d say that throwing your hands up in the air and saying, “I’m done playing so I am taking my toys and going home” is a distinctly un-American way of doing things.  So buck up, my fellow North Carolinians et al – you’re still citizens of the greatest country in the world, and if you are smart you’ll do everything you can to remain a part of it rather than be on the outside looking in.

    Couldn’t have said it better had I said it myself! We all as a nation have other stuff to deal with and I hope these folks are just venting. It doesn’t hurt to vent better than let it fester inside of you. Hope you had a great Turkey Day. Keep in touch! Simon シ
