The Secessionist Movement
Some right wing and libertarian blogs are discussing possible secession of certain states should Obama win. Secession is nothing new. Wyoming had a secession movement in the 1930's for a portion of that state, as well as parts of Montana and South Dakota to become Absaroka. We also have other secession movements like Aztlan and La Raza (reconquista), which some say has it's roots in Mexico's intellectual elites. While I am not promulgating these prospects, I'd like to discuss the possibilities with anyone that is interested. Can you imagine the effects of an Obama presidency resulting in people wanting to secede or even leave the country, or is it a bunch of hoohah by a bunch of tinfoil hat wearing nuts? I have no dog in the hunt yet, but I'd like to hear from you.
Thank you for reading this blog.
