Radicals in the woodpile

The people of Northern California feel that they are no longer being represented by the liberal government of central California. To that end they wish to secede from California and form a new state called Jefferson. The good people of Northern Colorado come to a similar conclusion regarding themselves and the liberal government running the state out of Denver and Boulder. Ditto the situation with Western Maryland vs the liberal government of Maryland. All of these people wish to secede from the existing state and form a new political entity to go to represent themselves. To that end they represent a greater threat to the central federal government then any political nation state elsewhere in the world. The idea that people would want to govern themselves and would be allowed to secede from a body to which they are apportioned and then do so extremely threatening concept. The closer they get to fruition, the greater the likelihood is that the major media in this country will turn its attention to trying to portray them as the worst of political scourges as they represent the worst of what the current administration has come to call radical extremists. Particularly since each of those areas represents people who are earning the largest relative income in the state.  they will be portrayed as being as evil as the southern folks in 1860 who did not want to stay and continued funding three quarters of the federal government that wasn’t representing them.

I wish them well.

    Amazing those upstarts taking a radical position like that…hmmm, where did they get such a nutty idea? Media will probably portray then as selfish greedy tea partiers And the word hate will be used frequently rather than freedom. I wasn’t aware of the Maryland discontent getting to that level. Onve the door is open…. It would be nice if the kings and queens would take it as a warning but no, they never do. Power can only react one way.
