Call to Implement a Provisional Government of South Canada

Fellow thinking Americans, the Government of the United States of America has been usurped in an illegal and fraudulent election. The majority of Americans living in the "Red States" have decided to turn their backs on the rule of law and have embraced an unelected dictator. We, The People of the Blue States, declare ourselves independent of the United States of America. We claim our right to institute a new government.

The form of government adopted by our forefathers is flawed. The recent usurpation of power by the fascist party proves that some better form of government is necessary. To our north, the People of Canada have successfully instituted a superior form of government using the parliamentarian system. Canadians enjoy a high standard of living, low crime rate, greater degree of freedom, universal healthcare and a more peaceful stance towards the world. We embrace their form of government, with some provisions, and declare our intent to establish The Provisional Government of South Canada based on their model.

We call on all residents of The Blue States to form new political parties and plan an election. The election will be conducted along the lines of the Canadian model. We will institute a parliament, adopt a new constitution and declare our independence from the United States of America. Future consideration will be given to unification with Canada, but only after the State of South Canada has been established and a plebiscite for unification has been passed.

What happens in your new country that has been spawned from "The People of the Blue States" when one of the "blue" states votes against the consensus of the remaining "blue" states?

Will the "Provisional Government of South Canada" then expel that state from South Canada? or will your new government accept that diversity of political opinion is essential in a healthy an free world.

This reminds me of some mentally unstable guy who dreamed of a colony on mars.

When pressed as to how to resolve a dispute where no party was willing to compromise his solution was to expell both parties from the colony......

Any sane individual will understand that expelling ANYONE from a colony on mars will result in DEATH within seconds.

This is where all this is going boys and girls......

You voted for Bush, so we just dump you.......

Divide and Conquer is the ANARCHIST goal, promote discontent then rule over what is left.

I am highly surprised that Boston-IMC editorial staff has not commented on this call for a division of the UNITED States.

(I just sat here for over 15 minutes trying to think of some really cool things to say in the last paragraph but cannot. The United States of America became what they are by being united but accepting the fact that all the states are different and with local, state and federal taxes, laws, customs and values...... yeah I got my last paragraph formed.... here goes!!!!!)

A couple of hundred years ago a very large land mass, larger than "Western Europe" and consisting of several areas with diverse climates and resources and nationalities made a pact to work together as one country while still retaining some local independance. Two hundred years later that allience of states formed the most powerful and secure nation on earth.

In the mid 70's Western Europe finally got around to realising that they were many different countries and cultures but to survive and prosper the European Union was formed. Now in 2004 the EU kicks butt. (flame me, but in reality they do, economically, they are UNITED!)

Europe realised that what the seperate "countries" in the USA did was the way to go. America lead the world.

Now, because an election didn't go the way some people wanted the call is out for a fragmentation of the USA?

I say to you "blue state, southern Canada people, follow the example of Europe!!!!! They saw what worked and copied it.

(yep that was more than one paragraph but when I got on a roll I sort of rolled.......

LMAO, well, a known disruptive individual calling for calm and unity has got to be something new here......
No problem.

All Governments should allow secession. That what "with some provisions" is intended for, adding changes. For example, I imagine that Hawaii would wish to become its own republic and Florida may wish to go its own way too. California might be better off as an independent country. New England, Cascadia and the upper mid-west of the current (and defunct) United States, would probably find it in their best interest to join with Canada for cultural reasons (New Englanders and the Atlantic Provinces share much in common, The upper Mid-West and Canada's Mid-West share much in common, and Cascadia and British Columbia share much in common).

In any case, the US is over with.
