Octovon;5670941I hope those people know that most Canadians do not want to move up to the great northern wilderness of this country, that's where the trolls live. There's a reason why 90% of Canadians live within 100 miles of the border.

I don't know why disgruntled Americans (presumably Republicans) would want to move to Canada because Obama won, it's not like Canada is a bastion of conservatism.

The old thing used to be liberal types threatening to move up to Canada if x person won, but I've noticed in recent times the same message was taken up by Republicans. More mind-boggling though was some re-tweets, some serious, that they would go to Australia because their "president" (?) was a good christian or some nonsense. None of that is even true but still. If they think the US is a socialist hellhole, Canada (much less anywhere else) by comparison is North Korea.

That being said this is of course just angry people. But it's an interesting way these things kind of come together on the internet to cause ruckus. I recall the last time some noise was made about secession was from Texas when our great Governor declared that Texas's "sovereignty" under the 10th amendment as an expression of states' rights, after the stimulus package. But not saying they'd secede of course.

There are quite a few similar posts on Failblog if you check around the dates of the election.

Regionalism has been emphasized in the current era of globalisation, so that's reasonable. If Texans feel they can fulfill their social needs better as independent, it's a good choice. Just like Scotland could be better off independent.

I don't know why you find it amusing. It's clear that the states will have less and less in common and many certainly not happy how federal things are going. Given the fact that global economy could work better as governance networks, in line with regional development, it could be for the btter. Silicon Valley, the New York metropolitan area and similar regions are importants in global economy contexts, a huge federation is simply too clumsy to control these things. Let regions specialize.

This has less to do with regional identity than it does with Obama winning. I don't think we would have seen this if the election went a different way. Lot of the rage that ensued typically took the form that they have to "preserve" what's left of the United States before Obummer's grubby communazi overwhelms it.

Secession movements in Texas and Vermont for what ever reason have existed before though you have to try hard to find the ones that really believe in the principle of it, as opposed to those who just don't want anything to do with the President Comrade Chairman Obama.
