The Forced Secession of the State of Washington

On Dec. 20, 1860, South Carolina, enraged by the election of Abraham Lincoln and the threat he represented to the slavers’ way of life, seceded from the Union. The Union and Confederacy fought a four-year battle to pin the country together. With the help of superior manpower and resources (not to mention the might of right), the Union won the Civil War.

Since then there hasn’t been a single secession from the United States. That needs to change. The State of Washington, because of crimes against humanity, must be forced to withdraw from the United States.

Washington lies! It’s what the people up there do! They lied about the origin of their name. The state wasn’t named after George Washington. It was named after Washington Pisarcik.

They lied in their motto: “The Evergreen State.”

They lied on their maps:

Everyone knows that Longview joined Oregon years ago and Port Angeles swore allegiance to the Crown so they wouldn't be associated with the Huskies. It was in all the papers.

Their Department of Licensing (that’s the place everyone else calls the D.M.V., but Washington has to be difficult) lied to me in July.

For a long time I thought my opinion of Washington was colored by college football. But someone from FishDuck.com/itsallaboutthemangeanditalics told me the Ducks have won 10 in a row over the Huskies. That sounds like a lot. They must have been exaggerating.

Really? All the fingers? On both the hands? How can that be? They can ride boats to the game. Surely that counts for something.

So it must not have anything to do with football. It must be about a dream I once had. The State of Washington declined to secede.

Leaving us with just one other alternative.

Go Ducks! If, God forbid, there was only one win on the schedule, let it be this one.
