Idaho Secessionists Petition Feds

KHQ is reporting that Idaho has become the 35th state to petition the White House to allow it to secede from the union. Idaho's petition, signed by 566 people to date, reads:

"We the people of the great state of Idaho are angered that the federal government is violating our natural/God-given rights. The so-called Patriot Act, the NDAA and being required to pay for unconstitutional wars are examples of this. We therefore as free men and women of our great state do believe that it is time to take matter upon ourselves to ensure our continued freedom, and to enact our own laws and here buy govern ourselves without the federal government's involvement in our internal matters from this day forward. More here.

Question: Why is it that Republicans want to secede when they don't like the president and Democrats want to go to Canada? What's that say about us as partisans?
