Obama won 70 percent of the Jewish vote. 51-54 percent of white catholics. 92 percent of the blacks vote, and 70 percent of the hispanics. Let us stop pointing fingers. These are hard facts. If the whites catholic had vote 92 percent as the blacks did Romney would have won. He did not need the ultra liberal lewish liberal votes. The evangelical vote 85 percent for Romney. I just read today where signatures are being colllected in the state of Louisana to withdraw from the union. In the declaration of independence this is permitted. Scotland, and Wales is having a referendum to be independent states. Remember what we did to the Federation of Russian States, and Yugoslavia????

How does this old saying fit?

If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything.

This is what has happened to the U.S. Our politicians sold out their core beliefs to win votes and the general population has followed. We are looking to politicians to guide our conscious and now we are losing our most basic freedoms. It didn't take guns or war, just blindly following mere men and women with feet of clay.

Soon we'll all be wringing our hands in despair because we let others determine what we should believe. We so easily were sucked into the propaganda.

Here's what happened to the Roman Republic ...

“… nor had they [the Romans] any more enemies whom there was ground to fear. This sense of security and this weakness on the part of their enemies caused the Roman people in appointing to the consulate to consider not a man's virtue, but his popularity. This drew to the office men who knew better how to get around men, not those who knew better how to conquer enemies. They then turned from those who had more popularity and gave it to those who had more power. Thus owing to the defectiveness of the institution it came about that good men were wholly excluded from consular rank." - N. Machiavelli

BTW - A consul was like a co-President (there were always two).

We have a petition started here in Texas as well. From what I have read it is possible. Our problems are in the deep south on the border.

I will jump to secession in a heartbeat. They don't see things my way, and I won't be forced to abide by their way. I see no way other than to make 2 different Americas. They can do it their way, and we'll do it ours. We can have trade agreements, and rights of travel, but I won't pay for your abortions, and you don't have to abide by my constitution. The original one.

There was an interesting article out of Time Magazine  (http://swampland.time.com/2012/11/07/inside-the-secret-world-of-quants-and-data-crunchers-who-helped-obama-win/) in which they interviewed the tech geniuses behind the Obama victory. Like so much of the exposure of anything pertaining to the President, this piece only raises more questions than the answers it purports to deliver.

For one, if you were in fact the man who successfully elected and then re-elected the leader of the Free World, why would you preferred to remain anonymous?

The narrative of both elections is that Obama twice used the smartest technological campaign teams on his ride from community organizer to leader of the free...
