But you can definitely still find people who will say stupid things like "When the federal gov't gets too big, we can just secede from the union." -- sound familiar Texans?


not just Texans of course .. i've been arguing for breaking off Calif. for years .

(have "Civil War" on in the background .. just heard that Gov. Sam Houston (THE Sam Houston!) was deposed because he was against secession)



And BTW the tea party is not just southern. Sarah Palin is Alaskan through and through. I think a good bit of the Alaskan population believes they could make it on their own and would prefer to be separated from the US. More power to them.


mostly true ..but a big Southern influence in parts of the NW -- during the Civil Rights changes of the 60s, a fairly serious migration of whites out of the South and into places like Idaho, Dakota, Alaska
(& ,iirc, during reconstruction, semi-serious migration to Oregon and Washington)


.. be a little bit sad if Alaska left ... they'd likely fish the N.Pacific to death and drill for Oil all over ...
