The panel voted 4 to 1 Tuesday against Republican Commissioner Lennie Thompson's resolution. Board President Jan Gardner called it outlandish and Commissioner Kai Hagen labeled it a public relations gimmick.

The GOP is brain-dead. You want to go? Go. Take Texas with you.

If your county wants to secede from the state of Maryland, you might be a Fredneck.

The people of this nation are tired of the constrains of the Federalist and their ideas of a United States ran by a powerful Central Government where the voice of the people amount to nothing. I say let it go to the people of Frederick and let them decide. If they vote in majority of yes then the Council has no choice but to adhere to the will of the people which is their sworn duty in Democracy.
