the ups and downs of life

It’s Time To Move Forward

Never in my life did I ever think I would hear of my fellow citizens considering secession. I honestly feel like people are overreacting to the election. Part of the founding of the United States was so that we elect our officials. Not liking election results is one thing, but to go to the extreme of saying you want to secede? I am ashamed of some of my fellow Americans. I am appalled. I haven’t liked a lot of election results, but I have never considered renouncing my citizenship. It is part of who I am. I think those people need to consider if you give it up, there’s no coming back. Leave and you’re gone. You do not have the same rights as us anymore and you are freaking on your own! You no longer have our protection or any other luxuries. You think it is so great to be off on your own? I bet you thought being an adult was easy, too. Was it so simple once you reached adulthood? I kinda doubt it.

I am so proud to be an American. I hope other Americans will remember what it is about and how lucky they really are. Many would gladly trade places with you. Don’t forget that.

  1. Bunch of spoiled brats…I wasn’t too crazy when the Supremes and the Bushes stole the election in 2000 either, but I never gave a thought to leaving the country. I just became determined to work harder for candidates I happened to agree with…this’ll blow over…I don’t think even the most radical of the conservatives would really be willing to give up life in the United States because of the results of an election…heck, there’ll be another presidential election in four year…

    • Al Gore had much bigger of a reason to pitch a fit when he lost and yet no one said let’s secede! I’m disappointed and angry with the attitude. They need to realize there are many people who would gladly trade places with them. It unnerves me how people in this country are so unaware of what they really have. I look at what others go through across the world and it scares me.
