    And I know there sure ain't some giant boogey man hiding underneath the bed ready to jump out and destroy the nation in the name of the President or Congress or anybody else .

    This is at least the second time you pulled this crap and it reeks of some swarmy fourth grade kid pretending he is oh sooo coool telling other kids where babies really come from but getting half of it all screwed up in the telling.

    It wouldn't be treason, since it would not be making war against any of the united states. It would simply allow a state to choose to leave the union. It would be a perfectly peaceful and legal action.

    Yeah - the Germans tried to destroy the USA and failed. The Japanese tried to destroy the USA and failed. The Italians tried to destroy the USA and failed to. And if you go back far enough, so did the Brits.

    But you would make it possible to destroy the USA right here at home.

    Like I said - your little plan has about as much chance as two feet of snow this July in Atlanta Georgia.

    I don't know why you're bringing up a giant boogey man. The supremacy clause is not all that scary. It's been in the constitution from the very beginning.

    Then why are you acting like you just discovered and trying to scare people with it? You did the same thing recently with the oh so scary process of passing laws which had also been around for a while.

    I'm not talking about destroying the USA. I'm talking about an amendment that would make it legal for a state to leave the union if it wished. If a state were to exercise that option and leave, the union would still exist among the remaining states.

    A union that isn't voluntary isn't really much of a union anyway. It's more of an empire. If that's what you want to preserve at all costs, then you and I have very different notions about the the USA actually represents.

    I don't think anyone but you is scared by the supremacy clause.

    And the USA as we know it would be destroyed bit by bit piece by piece.
    Got it loud and clear.
