SECCESSION!

And it begins...


Conservative group wants liberation for western Maryland

Fed up with taxes and Democratic dominance, they want to create 51 state
September 10, 2013|Dan Rodricks

I just returned from a pleasant trip to the mountains and rivers of Garrett County to the dismaying news that a group of conservative Republicans want Garrett and four other Maryland counties to break away and form the 51st state so they can live happily ever after.

I spoke Monday to the leader of what's called the Western Maryland Initiative. Scott Strzelczyk is his name. He doesn't like the word "secession."

He's talking about something different the formation of a new state out of five counties. The U.S. Constitution allows regions to separate with approval from the state legislature and Congress. There are similar efforts around the country. West Virginia is the last state to successfully break away from another, and that was 150 years ago.

States like Colorado and Maryland want to create Republican zones to throw the national elections the other way. If you chip off the 6 EC that would be created, you're still only losing 2 EC for the Democrats. They want to complain that the rest of their state is democratic. In a democracy majority rules. They want to create a situation where Romney lost by over five million votes but still won the election.

Like, just give us one. Give us Montana or something. The new nation gets a Constitution for the 21st century that permanently guarantees limited government. Conservatives from all over decide move there. Etc.

Would be a good topic for a film if someone other than hollywood libs made films
Awesome idea and it would be a big movie IMO.

Call up Clint, he could do it. Assuming of course he's done talking to invisible Obama.

It doesn't seem a little off that Baltimore runs state politics and people who live elsewhere have basically no political representation?

Isn't this true everywhere? The majority of people now live in urban areas. Should states be broken up into rural/urban? You don't like the direction of your state, change it. You can't just drop off and create your own rules.

Change it how? If you know of a way to stop these entitled pricks from breeding like roaches and voting to live, by all means, do share.

I think it would be great to cut the parasites off from the host.

Not true a bit. The two counties bordering DC have at least as much influence (Montgomery County alone has almost twice Baltimore's population), if not more. Most of the rest of Maryland is just as blue as Baltimore is anyway, the exceptions - obviously - being the mountainous west.

Don't forget the Senatorial edge. The creation of Northern Colorado and Western Maryland as states would add four Republican Senators out of thin air.
