    I wouldn't mind seeing virtually the entire south (and Oklahoma and Wyoming along with them) secede! The majority of the people who reside there were irresponsible enough to put their country in extreme danger by voting for a presidential ticket that included an incompetent, unintelligent, dangerous, and unqualified (for the position) woman who would have been a heartbeat away from the presidency. It would be wonderful to rid our country of that kind of irresponsible ignorance.

    That's not going to happen.

    Most states are broke, and the federal government is about to give them money, why would they walk away? Any state that secedes can forget about federal aid, disaster relief, etc.... It's too great a price for any state to pay, and only foolish citizens would desire to secede because they aren't thinking about the big picture.

    Yes you lot in the U.S.A. have got a great Constitution, but as W.Bush said "It's only a piece of paper", and I think Obama will say the same, it takes the people to enforce it, and they know that won't happen.
