Secessionists Have Strange Bedfellows

The secessionist elements of the Old Confederacy are acquiring a strange cheering section ... including Pravda which projects as many as 15 million Americans support breaking up the Union.

Out of the 35 states at least 10 have a real chance to secede from the United States. If this does not happen, the conflict between the "socialist" government and conservative separatists could drag on for a long time, leading to mass protests and other sad events.


The situation is quite complicated for the president-elect. Expert opinions are divided. Some believe America's problems are not fatal, while others argue that the U.S. is on the verge of a collapse. Most democratic media have not given any attention to the separatist sentiment. Many federal publications ignored the news about the petitions. Apparently they are trying to shift the focus of ordinary Americans to other problems (for example, the dismissal of CIA Director Petraeus).

Pravda is giving the sour-grapes, conservative, America-haters much more credence than the "democratic media" is.  Wonder why?

pravda? (4.00 / 1)

Is the National Enquirer of Russia.

I crunched a few numbers a few weeks ago when this was all over the net. The number of people signing these petitions was roughly the same as the number of people in homless shelters in NYC.

hey...wait a minute...

(I did project some growth as time went by, when my estimated total signers might actually equal the population od Davenport, Iowa. )
