Free And Independent Cascadia Meeting

For a long time people have talked about Cascadia rising up and seceeding from the union. Some say we should ask Canada to take us in, other aspire to a life free from governance by someone outside the community. It's time to get together and talk about it in tangible terms (time-frame etc.)
Around 51% of the country that was allowed to vote said that Bush represented them.
Around 98% of the country said that a war-mongering tyrant represented them.

Cascadia is different. Cascadia has never supported this bullshit. Bush I called Portland Little Beirut. It's time we take back the land that is rightfully ours. I've got some ideas on how it could happen, but I'm sure you do too and that a compromise can be reached. After all, most of you on this board have stood with me in the streets while riot cops sprayed us down. A minor detail like the methodology of our achievment of freedom shouldn't stop it from happening. Freedom is the only thing really important right now.

Not to worry, this won't be some bullshit PPRC meeting. We will have no leader, just probobally a facilitator and someone to take stack.

The proposed time, day and place is Saturday, November 13th at 5:30PM. We will meet at Pioneer Courhouse Square, but don't worry, we have nearby locations, but we want to determine which one to use based on the amount of people who show up. Be there! Spread the word!

PS: I can't really answer questions about how cascadia will be, that's more the purpose of this meeting. I could say how I envision cascadia to be, but not what some official rule would be.

Yes, Californians, jump in. All of us states that have secesion movements need to work together and support each other on this. If we all coordinate our efforts and secede simultaneously, then, individually, we are more likely to be successful.

Here's a California secession discussion forum I have found:

Also, here is another one "blue state secession" list:

the ???

What is the true purpose of this meeting if it is not going to be pprc B.S. then what is it going to be? What will the director of the meeting be directing? Why meet at the Square don't you think that is a little high profile considering there will be protest there all day? Is this meeting really going to be over the issue of "seceeding" from the union? Or is there some actual agenda here worth getting involved in and risk sticking my neck out?I can assure you there are otheres that aren't just idealistic kids who would like to see a rivival of that pre 9-11 spirit that almost took us some were.
