Spirit of 2014!
According to Google here are the following most searched for terms by State… note that secession is the most searched for item on Google in 16 States in 2014. While we don’t have the graphic back in 2013 Florida was one of the secession states and was #17, as well as West Virginia #18. For whatever reason they both show “To Know” which could mean “To Know how to secede”?
In any event if you thought that the secession craze of 2013 was just some small isolated fluke caused by a group of wacko’s online think again. In 2013 in the State of Texas alone, there was a record 1.2 billion searches alone on how Texas can secede from the United States, and in Vermont there were over 277 million searches on how Vermont could legally leave the United States and join Canada.
Texas’s population is only about 36 million, if you only count legal Texans (i.e. excluding illegal Mexicans squatting in Texas), so in order to get 1.2 billion searches on how Texas can secede every Texan would have to do at least 30 Google searches each in 2013!!!
That is mind boggling… and who says secession is a dead cause. To me and the facts that Google has released it appears that secession is not only alive, but is growing to record levels of power.
