Is secession a good idea? First, what is secession? Secession is the act of withdrawing from an organization, union, military alliance or especially a political entity. For example, the state of California wants to secede into 6 separate states. They feel that their government no longer represents them or their political views. Go figure.

Many people believe (about 25% of Americans) that this is the only way to rectify the injustices by the present government. Surprised? You shouldn't be. Obama has worked hard to divide all citizens of this once great country. He has engaged in many instances of just that. For example, the Travon Martin killing. He threw in his opinion before the facts were uncovered. The Cambridge Police fiasco - where he openly criticized the Police for doing their job. The "You didn't build this" statement shows that Obama is good at Community Organizing which is DIVIDING the country.  Obama doesn't lead, he divides.

States Rights has always been a bone of contention with the Federal government. It seems that more and more the Fed tries to intervene into a state's personal matter. Eric Holder keeps suing individual states for wanting voter identification laws. Holder claims that they are discriminatory. Proponents argue that you have to show IDs to buy liquor, drugs, and many other items and that showing IDs eliminates voter fraud.

So is secession the answer to this problem? It didn't work in the 1860's and caused a Civil War. Secession is unlikely, but the popularity shows just how upset citizens are with their current government. It's also unlikely that the mid-term elections will resolve the unrest. Is America DOOMED?
