    Say what? The national government is a leech upon the productive capacity of this country. We would be far better off without it.

    That's a pretty weak argument. I guess majority rules is morality for you?

    But it doesn't matter. The Fed govt and Northern States do not go by the Constitution unless it benefited them. The South was right Constitutionally, but the North showed us that didn't matter. And it won't matter now either.

    States did not give up their soverignty. Where do you get that? Didn't you read the clause I quoted in the Virginia ratification document?

    Obviously, but that's not what's being debated.

    Correct. As with most things involving the government, they do what they want be cause, frankly, who's going to tell them they can't, right?

    Your not paying attention very well. The Federal govt. is not going to let anyone secede. It doesn't matter about legal or Constitution.

    I'm sure we'll all agree. You can't stop the will of the people. Texas wants to secede and the people of America don't like Texas anyway. It's a ****hole of a state that always does embarrassing, redneck, bull**** things. The butthole of America can leave at any point, in my opinion.
