It isn't surprising that the secession "movement" has caught a bit of buzz. It's funny in an odd way that anyone would take it even half-seriously. The reason this bugged me again, is today on our local Vegas right-wing chatter AM station (one of them anyway), the host--a dolt named Kevin Wall--did several segments on the story as if it were a terrific idea. Think of all those federal taxes that would instead go to our state! Our schools! Yeah, except it would mean no federal support. On anything. It would require a passport for tourists to come to Las Vegas. It would require a currency exchange too. Not to mention the fact that Nevada went for Obama. Those are just three of hundreds of reasons why it's a bad idea. Strike that, it's a ridiculous idea, made doubly so by the fact that the same people that profess patriotism would so casually separate from the country.
President Obama won, and will be President until January 2017. Live with it you whiny little faux "patriots."
