‘Western Maryland’ Secession Movement Growing

WESTMINSTER, Md. — A tale of two Marylands: Western Maryland and the rest of the state. Fed up with high taxes and gun control, some people want to break away and go it alone.

Mary Bubala explains why they’re trying to form their own state.

There’s a storm brewing over the beautiful mountains and valleys of Western Maryland. More and more people in those five counties say Governor Martin O’Malley is out of touch and they want to break away from the rest of the state.

“I can’t imagine Maryland without Western Maryland,” said Governor Martin O’Malley.

    As a life-long resident of the Eastern Shore of Maryland we have been Fed Up. Prior Gov. Shaffer referred to us as the Shithouse side of Maryland. Let’s join forces.

    The only way this happens is if the entire country splits. And, as interesting as it might appear, it is the ultimate long shot. But, for the sake of “kicks and grins,” just imagine…

    We have a contested election in 2016. Those states that broke for George W. Bush in ’04 go “red,” with one or two exceptions. At that point, many of the “red” states decide that they would rather instigate a “peaceful separation,” than remain under a Hillary Clinton presidency. They would seek to maintain ties with the “blue states,” but not be subject to their rule. In effect it would be similar to our relationship with Canada. Allies and favorite trade partners. But not, affiliated states.

    At that point, the states would decide “which” America they wanted to be a part of. Individual counties would go separate ways, as was the case with West Virginia in 1863.

    Could this really happen? Yes. But, it probably wouldn’t be peaceful! G. Edward Griffin’s book, “The Creature from Jekyll Island” makes a case for abolishing the Federal Reserve. In deeper study, it is confirmed that a banking cartel, largely composed of Northeast and European interests, has systematically embezzled trillions of dollars from the American people over the past 100 years.

    Suddenly, the argument that “repudiation” is the appropriate measure of “all Eastern banking debt,” becomes the battle cry.

    We have experienced a massive wealth transfer since 1997. The middle class is shrinking. Two million less Americans are working than in 2008. More people are frustrated now than ever! When you begin talking about “recovering stolen money” you chance the dynamics of the argument!

    Can you now see what kind of “ruckus” these five Maryland counties could “stir up!”

    Ahhh, Western Maryland. A land of beautiful scenery, a teacher’s college and 3 of the lowest income counties in the state. They should secede. Bring it on. The rest of the state is just weighing them down anyway.
