    Yes, I would. We don't have the ability to sustain ourselves without being attached to the federal government.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Can't speak to the legitimacy, but it's now unconstitutional, isn't it, for a state to secede?

    You didn't. I dont see in any of your examples of the constitution that prove secession is against the Constitution. You simply gave examples of a state in the Union. Big difference.

    So, again, what does that have to do with secession?

    You lose the argument because your wrong. Thats all. No need for me to move any goal posts. Ive always said up until 1861 it was constitutional. After that it doesn't matter because the North ran all over the Constitution. In other words, the Constitution doesn't matter. Power is all that mattered.

    Here's a novel idea; read before you comment. This information was right in front of you before and you chose not to read, so I'll make it easier for you this time.

    David Crockett, dedicated his career to justice, truth, and liberty, and in the end gave his life up for freedom for the Texian people. He did NOT lay down his life for the Federal Government of the United States. He did not die for the STATE OF TEXAS. He died for the Republic of Texas.

    Never has been and still isn't.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    States gave up their sovereignty when they joined the Union. See the Constitution for State restrictions.
