I received this unsolicited from someone identified as Linda Hunnicutt. I thought it suitable to share because it is such a fear-filled (and racist) image that the right insists on painting. Some of the statements are truly remarkable.

Forget about Conservatism vs Liberalism and look at some historically verifiable facts.
If the Conservative states seceded, there would be about 20 Liberal states and 30 Conservative states.
The Liberal states would comprise a half million square miles, and Conservative states would comprise two and a half million.
Their murder rate per 100,000 would be 13.2, and ours would be 2.1.
To pay taxes, their workers would have to work five months per year, and ours would have to work two.
Their industries would be over-taxed and over-regulated and ours would thrive.
Their public schools would indoctrinate, and ours would educate.
Their disruptive students would get counseled, and ours would get spanked.
Their murderers would get free room and board, and ours would get executed.
They’d welcome illegal aliens, and we’d deport them.
Their military would grow weak, and ours would grow strong.
They’d be energy-DEpendent, and we’d be energy INdependent.
History has shown us that the above would almost surely happen.
The following would PROBABLY happen. Most of their married mothers would have to work, and ours could stay home and raise children.
Their towns would have lots of pawn shops and porn shops, and ours would have lots of thriving businesses and churches.
They’d have mosques full of subversives, and we’d have churches full of patriots.
Their citizens would not have guns, and ours would. (Yamamoto, after Pearl Harbor, said, “You cannot invade America. There would be a gun behind every blade of grass.”)
SECESSION SOUNDS GOOD TO ME AT THIS POINT
Let the Liberals have their states and people that want a nanny state completely controlled can move to those states. Give us our Freedom and let us regain our self respect and live by the rules set forth in the Constitution.
