Default Ron Paul on secession.

Quote:
Secession is a deeply American principle. This country was born through secession. Some felt it was treasonous to secede from England, but those ‘traitors’ became our country’s greatest patriots,

Quote:
“If the possibility of secession is completely off the table there is nothing to stop the federal government from continuing to encroach on our liberties and no recourse for those who are sick and tired of it.”
So, in his mind, secession is an American value. Elections, winning the hearts and minds of our fellow citizens is what I call an American value. We have elections on a federal level every two years (HoR) and presidential every four years. It seems that Ron Paul has lost a sense of history, when he forgets that the 13 Colonies "secession" was because they did not get to participate in the elections of the House of Commons, a completely different circumstance.

Go ahead and secede, most Red states are mooching off the richer Blue states...Texas is really the only Red state worth a damn and it won't take long until they too are a blue state. Hispanics are the largest growing voting bloc so secede while you still have a chance
