Yeah this guy seems a little off, not to mention racist, and I have to question how much time he's actually spent here...

But he was right about Texas, the independence movements are on the rise, they enlisted two new members this year. Of course they were both born into the club, and one past away so it about evens out...

He definitely overestimates the ethnic divide in the US (Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans). I guess he doesn't realize Obama was just elected President.

The question is, would North and South Dakota stay or go?

I don't think they even exist.

I remember from election night, it was the Southern (Confederate states) who did not vote Democartic.

^^^How does that relate to the idea of the U.S. splitting up?

Are you saying because the South voted Republican, they might want to try to secede again someday?

Yes, I can see that as something that might happen in the future.
Although it's been over a hundred years, there are still deep divides between the North and South concerning the role of the Federal govenment and States rights.

I think if carefully polled you would find there would be more of a divide of culture, race, phobias and other social issues more than the roll of government.
