Uh, you know we fought a big war like 140 years ago over this issue? Secession is for whiners and quiters. Man up and go fight for what you believe in.

100% correct.

These wild fantasies of splintering our already divided country is short-sighted (if "sighted" at all) and immature. None of these goofy secessionists have fleshed out their plans enough to even respond to!

Good grief. We have REAL problems. We need grown-ups with real solutions.

Ted, I think you know the game is rigged at this point, don't you?

We can't even get a decent republican nominated for president, and we look the other way every day when DC does some new unconstitutional (read illegal) act.

Once the rules no longer apply, what choices are there?

Although last week's election seemed like the end of common sense when it comes to fiscal policy, there is a silver lining. More certified public accountants are headed to Congress and the ones who were already there, are staying.

All eight CPAs currently in the House won re-election, according to the Journal of Accountancy, including John Campbell, R-Calif., Mike Conaway, R-Texas, Bill Flores, R-Texas, Lynn Jenkins, R-Kan., Steven Palazzo, R-Miss., Collin Peterson, D-Minn., James Renacci, R-Ohio, and Brad Sherman, D-Calif. Several of them won re-election after fierce contests in recently redrawn congressional districts.
