An interesting thing about the election. Check out this map of the results by county. http://www-personal.umich.edu/~mejn/election/2012/countymaprb1024.png The blue areas are dominated by big cities.

So? This has been the case since I became an adult.

Why does this continue to surprise anybody?

The idea of Texas seceding from the Union is a long time joke, but a secession petition on WhiteHouse.gov has received enough signatures to be seriously reviewed by the White House.

This isn't quite the equivalent of the Declaration of Independence, but in the digital age, you could say it's similar.
