Maryland counties join movement to secede from largely Democrat-run state
Amazing how one person can spark a movement. But that's exactly what happened in Western Maryland:
A group of Maryland residents frustrated with its state’s liberal government is joining a recent movement across the country of regions trying to secede. Western Maryland is made up of five counties whose residents largely vote Republican and feel under-represented at the state capitol, run by Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley and a Democrat-controlled legislature. The movement began in July as a social-media effort, with activist Scott Strzelczyk starting a Facebook page titled the Western Maryland Initiative. The movement, however, has since garnered significant media attention, with Strzelczyk talking to everybody from National Public Radio to The Washington Post.Movements like this will prime the pump of REAL secession. People can put up with only so much endless war, debt, and illegal surveillance. Thanks to Jeff for the heads up!
