"Beware the Ides of March."
So said the soothsayer in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.
This year, the Ides of March (March 15) could be a day to beware, on that day, the Obama Administration will shut down the Tethered Aerostat Radar System (TARS) throughout the Southern United States (source: http://www.reagancoalition.com/articles/2013/20130128003-obama-defense-south.html). Translation: there will be no air defense for that part of the country.
Needless to say, our southern borders will not be safe. Any terrorist could infiltrate the Southern United States via low flying aircraft. Drug cartels and other criminals could also take advantage of the situation. Any hostile nation could even exploit the situation for the purpose of an invasion (like in the movie Red Dawn).
The question is why is Obama doing this? Does he want America to experience another 9/11 or even an invasion, so he can declare martial law and exercise full dictatorial powers? Is he punishing the South because most of the states from that region went to Romney in this past election? And if so, he seems to have forgotten that New Mexico and Florida were blue states back in November.
In the aftermath of the election, people from all 50 states submitted petitions to the White House requesting that their respectful state be allowed to secede from the union. In order for a petition to qualify for a response from the White House, the petition must have at least 25,000 signatures within a thirty day period. All the states that reached such a goal happen to be Southern States. The White House rejected the secession petitions, although it is unclear if that will dampen the secession movement (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_state_petitions_for_secession).
But if Obama is willing to strip the Southern United States of any air defense (while also pushing for gun control) then that part of the country will be defenseless against criminals, terrorists, or even a military invasion. The possibility of that type of scenario could actually result in secession, and this time those pushing for secession will not seek approval from the White House.
