For libertarians, the two most amazing things to come out of the 2004 election are 1) Badnarik and the Greens accomplising a re-count in Ohio which proves just how dangerous third parties are and 2) DEMOCRATS calling for secession and saying the opposition "red states" are NET welfare recipients sucking the blood of the NET taxpayers the "blue states." See http://taxprof.typepad.com/taxprof_blog/2004/09/red_states_feed.html
Before the election, I frequently predicted that no matter who won, the other side would be talking secession, and low and behold they are. And not just for states, but for "blue" cities and counties, since overall the real differences are NOT state wide but urban/suburban vs. suburban/rural. This illustrates what http://secession.net has been promoting for years -- COMMUNITY-BASED secession. Voluntary communities, of course, composed of individuals who freely create or join them. How libertarian can you get? There are a growing number of yahoogroups working on this issue. Search yahoogroups home for the lastest list. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/secession is Free State Project founder Jason Soren's group.
Right now, as usual, I'm too busy to really organize around secession since I'm active locally and on the web opposing Bush's NEXT war -- see http://groups.yahoo.com/group/stopiranwar. And almost done updating significantly http://libertarians4peace.net

BADNARIK BUTTONS? You've only got to December 17th to get the full range. http://www.radicalbuttons.com/campaign2004.html
