The Tide Begins To Turn....

A rather fascinating poll by Zogby shows that about 20% of Americans favor secession! Here's an interesting post on the subject by Rick Williams.

A few thoughts:

....Politically, liberal thinkers were much more likely to favor the right to secession for states and regions, as 32% of mainline liberals agreed with the concept. Among the very liberal the support was only slightly less enthusiastic - 28% said they favored such a right. Meanwhile, just 17% of mainline conservatives thought it should exist as an option for states or regions of the nation....

Just 17% of Conservatives? That should make clear the ever broadening gray line between liberals and "conservatives".

...The more education a respondent had, the less likely they were to support secession - as 38% of those with less than a high school diploma would support it, compared to just 10% of those with a college degree....

Kinda makes you wonder, what are they teaching in colleges these days?

That's wonderful!
But, your right, it's sad that 'conservative' has to be defined now.

I'm with you on college. I'll probably take some music courses at the local community college, but anything else seems a waste of time and intellect. We already have enough educated morons in the U.S.

Thanks for the comments, ladies.

Yeah, I'll probably take some accounting classes or something of that nature, but 4 years? Over my dead body!
