This past week, California joined Alaska and Virginia in passing a law making it illegal to implement NDAA in their territories. Illinois already passed a law restricting drone use in their state. Twelve states have pushed back on the issue of Common Core curriculum. And seven states have said they will not implement Obamacare.
From one of the most prominent Texas daily newspapers - the Houston Chronicle:
TexMessage: 40 states join Texas in petitions to secede; Austin petitions to remain in USA
It’s not just Texas that wants out of the Union.
Georgia, Florida and Louisiana also bolstered enough votes on “We The People” to merit a response from the Obama administration.
Other states vying to break ties:
Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Arkansas, Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, Arizona, Missouri, Mississippi, Kentucky, Oklahoma, New York, Oregon, New Jersey, Montana, Georgia, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, California, Nevada, Ohio, Delaware, Wyoming, Utah, Alaska, Kansas, Nebraska, West Virginia, South Dakota, Virginia, Wisconsin, Rhode Island, Illinois, New Hampshire and Idaho.
That leaves only 10 states who aren’t considering secession or who haven’t yet managed to raise enough votes to get on the site. The loyalists would almost be better off seceding from the rest of the country and letting them run things their way. Even President Barack Obama’s home state of Illinois has racked up almost 1,600 votes.
With the government shut down and the economy seriously tanking, Obama must be considering his options about now.
Might a failure by Congress to raise the debt ceiling limit by October 17th cause Obama to declare these states in a State of Insurrection and invoke the National Emergencies Act?
We saw very recently how Obama suddenly backed off a strike on Syria which was so close that France had to scuttle it's portion only hours before it's launch and Israel received a "warning call" informing them an attack was imminent. Was it really the public's opinion that caused Obama to back off or was it the military's upper echelon?
U.S. military officers have deep doubts about impact, wisdom of a U.S. strike on Syria
The Obama administration’s plan to launch a military strike against Syria is being received with serious reservations by many in the U.S. military, which is coping with the scars of two lengthy wars and a rapidly contracting budget, according to current and former officers.
Having assumed for months that the United States was unlikely to intervene militarily in Syria, the Defense Department has been thrust onto a war footing that has made many in the armed services uneasy, according to interviews with more than a dozen military officers ranging from captains to a four-star general.
Former and current officers, many with the painful lessons of Iraq and Afghanistan on their minds, said the main reservations concern the potential unintended consequences of launching cruise missiles against Syria.
The big question is, what will the patriotic American military who are sworn to uphold the United States Constitution do when the moment of decision arrives? Will they carry out the Commander-in-Chief's orders to complete the enslavement of the American people or will a military coup take place?
