I guess some people have more time on their hands than good sense. Georgia is one of 30 states which have residents wanting to leave the union. Good luck maintaing your current life style and freedom. Get with the program people. Work within the system to make changes that will make this country great or leave. It is simple. Think it's bad here, go some place else and see how good you really had it. I like my state to be part of the union thank-you. I am proud to be an Ameircan, warts and all. You don't speak for me so stop pretending you do.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”

like you said earlier, it is a silly exercise. but if it continues it wont be. over 200 years ago there was silly talk in taverns around the colonies that eventually lead to war with England. we come from a history of standing up to governments when we feel pushed too far. i don't want to see it happen, but the writings on the wall. it is all slowly coming together. which is what Obama wants, he wants to split this country up. read his books, watch Obama 2016 (which is not a Obama smashing movie) and you will see what his vision is for america.
