Fcb, secession is not granted, Its taken. The federal government is a creation of the several states, can't own property, and can't put states out of the union. The pettition to evoke a referendum on the question of secession and initiate an immediate recall of any elected official failing to support the will of the people so indicated within six days, is about freedom of choice. Into the abyss of social slavery and intellectual racism, or not. I wish you guys the best. Ill be watching your brave experiment with socialism, but I will not be participating, nor will I allow my family and resources to be at risk in it.
Intellectual racism, labeling those who seek freedom, and think differently as "haters" is rather shallow. Is secession sedition? The new republic will need to have schools to address the latter. Secession, like divorce is how people escape abusive relationships. It does not involve invasions and wars as a rule. See soviet republics, former, for a modern perspective.
Sucessfuly seceding on the other hand... Probably depends in how we treat the other states when they petition to join our new prosperous, EPA free republic...
Frankly, I'm not willing to become a slave for the promise of a couple thousand highly devalued dollars per month, maybe, someday.... I'm just funny like that I suppose.
We should all look closely at these issues, as freedom and prosperity may be close at hand!
The tax savings realized when welfare becomes workfare should more than cover any missing federal grants. Perhaps even enough left over to fund a zombie reeducation program too..
Build a better republic through peaceful secession!
