Re: So you want to secede and you filled out a petition at the White House?
Ya know, the Feds keep telling the local Indians how they are going to do this and that; the Indians give them a dumb look like they don't even understand what is being told to them and go on about their business in the manner they have always done what they do. The Feds have become so sick of dealing with the Indians, they leave them alone nowadays. They can't lock them all up, they all stick together, and pretty much tell the Feds to go pound salt.
Everything in America only functions through voluntary compliance or we have problems, turmoil & then upheaval; one thing the powers that be don't need to remain in power and continue their scam. Live your life, raise your kids, be happy and free; but don't start living in fear of the govt; they ain't that successful at whatever they attempt to do.
