These petitions make no sense.
Don't these people realize how much more expensive it'll become if they are an independent nation? Do they think they'll be able to maintain roads or build a military on that 2 or 3% of state tax they pay now? How much more expensive things will be when they have to export them from a foreign nation that sits right next door?
It's laughable that they think they're better off going it alone because they have to pay taxes and a black man is president.
I think it would be fun to watch them circle the drain and then beg to be let back in.
