Everybody wants their state to succeed. Now, some angry citizens also want their state to secede.
Social media doesn’t always know the difference between the two.
So people took to Twitter, outraged on both sides of the aisle. Some think secession is a dumb idea, while others are so fed up with the direction of the nation that it seems like a viable option. I’m not here to give you my opinions on the topic — I’m just here to show you some people failed American History. Or spelling.
Somewhere in Alaska, Sarah Palin wonders to herself why these 20 states want to succeed so badly.
