The Not So United States or another edition of Republican Whining ‘Boo Hoo, You’re Not Doing Everything Our Way’ – ‘Meet The Maryland Republicans Who Want To Secede’
And for you teabaggers out there – this IS in the Constitution :
‘Constitution – Article 4 Section 3’
“New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new States shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress”.

Remember Republicans – Just because you aren’t getting everything your way – you can’t just leave.
We are a Country……Not little tiny Republican serfdoms.
‘A group of voters from a sparsely populated region in Maryland want to form their own state, and they are threatening to secede from Maryland in order to do so’.
‘The group, which calls itself the Western Maryland Initiative (WMI), is dissatisfied with the fact that, in a democracy, people with minority views are frequently outvoted by people with more common views’.
‘As the Washington Post explains, this movement — as well as similar movements in places like Colorado and California — arose because a “population boom in urban areas such as Baltimore and the Maryland suburbs near the District, the Boulder-Denver areas in Colorado, and in Detroit have filled state legislatures with liberal policymakers pushing progressive agendas out of sync with rural residents, who feel increasingly isolated and marginalized.”
