As pointed out in other posts here, and summarized quite well in the linked article...the red states rely so heavily on the federal government that any talk of secession seems crazy.

From the article:

Quote:
Red states, by and large, are moochers. They can't sustain themselves. If California were to secede, the state would have a balanced budget (or nearly balanced.) If Alabama were to secede, it wouldn't be able to pay for its stop signs.

I get the idea of opposition, but this cannot be serious.
I've seen it. Just an irrelevant action that will be completely ignored by the WH and will ultimately amount to nothing.
