    Secession? For or Against?

    For the Americans on the board: Do you or would you support the secession of your State from the United States government? If yes, under what circumstances? If not, why not?
    I am an avowed secessionist myself that believes the American States are semi-sovereign political entities that did not permanently surrender their ability to resume the powers voluntarily delegated to the U.S. federal government at its creation by ratifying the constitution.
    The federal union of the States was originally understood as a voluntary compact embodied in the constitution, and the States were understood to retain their right to secede from the union at will, up until Abe Lincoln and his war of invasion and conquest that supposedly "settled" the secession question at gunpoint.
    Before the War Between the States, secession was taught as an American constitutional tradition at West Point, even.
    The hostile, often blatantly tyrannical behavior of the federal regime today against the States and their citizens has caused the discussion of secession to come up even in "mainstream" media discourse (i.e. Rush Limbaugh, Washington Post, lately) as a constitutional option to get out from under the destructive grip of Washington D.C.
    I think there will be some form of secession to occur within the next 50 years, hopefully sooner
    I think States with an abundance of land and resources like Alaska, California, and Texas would do fine, perhaps even prosper more on their own as independent republics (indeed Tx. and Cal. were such in the beginning). Perhaps we Southerners might form a new Confederacy since we are still distinct from the rest of the country in many ways.....I, too, have a dream!

    I would not like that California secedes for the following reason:

    there is a growing number of mexican-american and huge number of blacks and asian in this state. The population shift will be that way that white people are the minority in this state.

    What is going to happen when California secedes? given the rapidly growing number of Mex they will at one point take over. So how then does it look with the constitution? how is it going to look with corruption? How is it going to look if Mexico invades California with a huge mex population? Or if it simply declares itself as part of Mexico via the outnumbering of whites?

    At the same time I am also aware that California is a burden to the union.

    I think the only chance California has is to stay in the union and work that the political direction is changed as a total.


    Those are the reasons. But I rather would be living in a white state ruled by the constitution . I simply don't see that happening in California given the circumstances.

    Yes, but we would have to get rid of a lot of illegal Mexicans in the process. Things could get ugly. Having been an independent nation we have a heritage of independence from Washington anyway. After secession, it's likely we would annex Oklahoma and maybe New Mexico and then move north.

    Let NC secede

    Its really the only way to clear this garbage out. That way we would have options for people who do not like the way things are done in one state they could move to another state that does things like they want. For example Calif could have all the homos, New York could have all the blacks, and so forth. See the idea would be to let people have 50 different choices!!

    If a number of states decided to secede to stop (illegal) immigration and the Obama regime, then I would support them.

    This is why I am opposed to secession, it would mean letting other groups having parts of the US for themselves. It would be a form of surrender.

    What I would really prefer is sweeping all the garbage overseas somewhere. Hispanics to Latin America. Negroes to Brazil or Africa, Asians back to Asia & the Jews can go to Israel or Madagascar.

    I believe we should secede from the federal government as it no longer represents us.

    We are supposed to a government " Of The People, For The People, and By the People". In todays world of political parties and elitism in these parties we as common people are not being represented.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.
