    Now wait a tic there, Bernie... this seems awfully self-absorbed of you. After all, you're campaigning on behalf of The People, whose needs should certainly outweigh any of your own particular wants/needs, no? I'm just not sure We, The People, can allow this kind of personal privilege to persist... I'm somewhat concerned that if you ever actually achieved meaningful political power, you may allow that power to corrupt you personally.

    This occurs pretty much anytime you penetrate coal seams. This is not specific to unconventional wells in any way - in fact, it's less likely with deep unconventional wells because, as mentioned, the shales that are being fracked are generally thousands of feet below the surface (in Appalachia, the depths range from 6K-13K before they even go horizontal), and there are multiple layers of steel casing and concrete through the vertical sections of the well. Also, to the point of the article, the economic impact of such a prohibition would be staggering. Unconventional drilling has played a big role in the revitalization of the NE rust belt - Southwestern PA, WV, Southeastern OH. It's just an absolute absurdity that this is even a thing. The hysteria over "fracking" is one of the more absurd talking-points in politics today. It's unbelievable that such a "ban" is even a potentiality. This is one of the main reasons I'm an advocate for Appalachian secession.

    Fundamentally I agree with you, but I'm not entirely ready to give up the ground: The capacity for it ('it' being the capability to comprehend freedom) clearly exists; many of us here are the Proof of that Fact. We are human beings. Human beings are built with essentially the same Operating System, strengths and weaknesses in this or that area aside. Speaking for myself as a former pro-statist and having matriculated within statist society I was at one point even a socialist, all it took was exposure to the Truth. Once the concept was laid out to me, I couldn't refute the logic, and so I was left with no other choice than to adopt the position. Now I'm one who is inclined toward logic. Intellectually I'm not built to ignore that framework, and once I realize I cannot counter it, as I said I'm left with no choice but to adopt it. But some are built to ignore logic. Some - probably many... and perhaps even most - have a weakness in their OS in the area of logic, and are thus susceptible to the Tune of the Piper. And others have a weakness in their OS in the area of humility, who are inclined to become the Piper. Thus, our current conundrum.

    I'm not a Trump guy, but I don't believe any of these "sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity" reports. I consider it far more likely that mealy-mouthed, man-bunned, confused-sexual, marxist "journalists" just make this sh!t up and cite the convenient "anonymous source". Not that I don't consider it likely that Trump's a nutjob. It's just that it's MORE likely that MSM is making sh!t up to damage him. The MSM is a fetid, rotting husk and I don't consume a second of it.

    If the Federal Government is a lost cause, and if the states are areas of focus... why wouldn't an effort be worthwhile to get them to focus on secession?

    All due respect, Collins, but this seems extraordinarily oblivious of the advancement of the statist agenda... what advancements in liberty within the framework of the USG can you point us to over the course of the past 75 years or so that would suggest this is a viable avenue? Of course I understand that secessionist movements have little to point to in terms of successes on their own, but I'd suggest that has more to do with the fact that whatever momentum there's been toward that end has always been sapped by the likes of the Republican party constantly promising smaller Federal government, yet always giving us more and more and more. What if people started regularly and directly pointing the electorate TOWARD the DoI, appealing to the PRINCIPLES of the Revolution, and started advocating on behalf of TRUE liberty? Look I get what you're saying, I just think it's BS. I think it's just an imperceptibly slower circling of the same drain. Going off of memory here, so forgive me if I misquote: "That when governments become destructive of that end, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it". You really don't think we could get a quarter of Americans to get behind that slogan? If we can't, there's no point anyway. All is lost.

    Hmm... maybe you're hitting upon something there... maybe the whole response, "straight pride" parade is more about trying to articulate that most people just want to be left alone to do as they wish and not be forced to condone any particular behavior is the actual message. That would be poor messaging for the left, if that were the case tho, no? Well said, TheCount...

    I'm not suggesting an east/west, north/south secession. That was as much a bastardization as the union itself, or nearly so anyway. I'm suggesting that there are regions within the geography of the US wherein the interests of the local population broadly align. Vast stretches of the American west, for example; Appalachia, as I mentioned; New England, of course. When you take a step back from US national politics and take a clear-eyed look, it's an absolute absurdity: generally speaking two political factions vying for control to - openly - assert their will upon a nation of 330 million human beings stretched across a varied landscape covering 4 million square miles. That's freaking asinine... Of course we know what the original idea was - that the Federal government would only handle the 18 enumerated powers, etc., etc. Welp, that didn't work, and that cat ain't going back in the bag, because there will always be the threat of the next election overturning all of the quote-unquote progress that was made. This is a death spiral, an absolute dead end. So again, as I see it what this movement should focus on is breaking the country up into more reasonable districts wherein the interests of the people more closely align.

    YES. Currently in the world, we see Great Britain dissolving itself from the EU; we see people in Hong Kong beautifully, nobly, resisting the rule of PRC (a story which has received little relevant media coverage among the major US media outlets, if I understand correctly). There is an oeuvre at play in the world today, I think. There is a symphony of self-determination, and I think it will have been the saddest of missed opportunities if we, the so-called liberty movement, in no less a place than America, fail to seize upon it.

    Yeah that sounds right. I know of one member who's from this part of the world (Greene County, PA, to be specific), who I can't think of his username at the moment. Oh, I believe osan is from southern West Virginia if I recall correctly, which reasonably lines up with me, geographically. There's momentum for this sort of thing in the world today. The Trumpist movement is indicative, but also Brexit, as well as the business in Hong Kong if I read it correctly. It has legs, if people are willing to run on them.

    I don't think most here aren't against it either, but I do think that there's a considerable - and perhaps organized - focus upon distracting from that end. I think that with Ron's failed 2012 run, it's the most logical end to this movement. I think we should be actively enabling secessionist movements, where ever the may arise, from whatever political perspective they may arise. I live in Appalachia... I think it's time for me to start advocating for a secessionist movement within that region. I think there's actually a good base for that endeavor, given the abundant natural resources and the natural geography, as well as the lingering spirit of the people who live here.

    Help me understand why the focus of this movement hasn't become secessionism. This is currently a country of 330 million people and growing every day, 4 million square miles of land mass, 6 time zones, 3,000 miles east to west, temperate zones to deserts, mountains to plains, densely populated areas like New York and Los Angeles to places like Wyoming, where off the top of my head I think prong-horn outnumber human beings something like 4-to-1... a multi-cultural population that varies from recent African immigrants to indigenous peoples to "settlers" who can trace their lineage back over 4 centuries within a single county and almost literally everything in between... Montanans have more in common with people from Saskatchewan than people in Florida. People in southern California have more in common with people in northern Mexico than people in Missouri. The idea that this "country" should focus so intensely on a central government in Washington, D.C., let alone on the so-called "local" governments within their own "states" is a fucking lunacy. When you honestly take a step back and consider what it is that we're discussing when it comes to national politics, if you don't come to the conclusion that the whole goddamned business is completely bonkers, you're missing something. Ultimately, as an anti-statist, my goal is micro-secession, but I'd really like someone to explain to me what the legitimate argument is against breaking this monolith up into more reasonable management districts that make considerably more sense than this untenable mass.

    Indeed. I get the idea of the "gay pride" parades... gay people have been "closeted", and the idea is (or, should be...) to get out in public and express the fact that they're really no different than anyone else other than their sexual orientation, etc. But what ends up happening is a not small contingent of flamboyant deviants put themselves on display and seem interested in demanding endorsement (specifically chosen word) of the depravities. Depravities and deviants, by the way, are not exclusive or inherent to homosexuals. Their are straight people into all manner of sexual stimulation that falls outside of what would typically be considered outside the norm. The difference is there's no attempt to brashly put those peculiarities on display and to attempt to normalize them. With regard to "straight pride" efforts, I see this as just a "counter-attack" in the culture war. There is an obvious effort by certain elements within society (news media and entertainment specifically) to bring out-sized attention to the "causes" of homosexuals, transsexuals, etc., when those folks represent a rather small segment of the society at large. Some folks who populate the in-lier sections of the bell curve with regard to sexuality are I think responding as could be expected.

    Of course he's "right"... that's the point! There isn't anything the Federal Government can't do... just ASK them. There's a comprehensive volume of sht-the-feds-cant-do that they actually DO every single day. It's called the Code of Federal Regulation. This inclination to check the rulebook every time Uncle Sugar does something... it's asinine... They wrote - and regularly re-write - the fucking rulebook. Does anyone think they aren't going to "find" the authority they need to do some thing?
