    The CSA was not attempting to alter the form of government of the United States
    thats true.

    however the southern statures were altering their governments of each state by no longer adhering to constitutional law which they left behind.

    states even today have in constitutions the right to alter of abolish their state government.....and if that government is not compatible with the guarantee of article 4 section 4 it cannot be part of the union.

    The US is the best country to be a part of financially and in every other sense other than maybe Sweden or Norway (90%+ white Mecca rich countries). US secessionists simply aren't rational. They don't understand the world around them or ironically even the realities of their state in many respects. The average anarchist much like the average US secessionist lives in a bubble of like-minded people. The average Texas secessionist doesn't know their state or country or world outside of their comfort zone just as the average urban anarchist doesn't. Both are mutually uninformed.

    I ABSOLUTELY support the Secession of Texas from the "Union". Its time for a DIVORCE! If you want to know what our nation has become, just go onto NPR. They will erase your posts, spit on you, call you a traitor for not loving Obama and liberalism, and SCREAM that NO ONE is allowed to leave! That's enough for me. I don't want to be ANY PART of a nation like that. God Bless, Texas! Nation of the Free!

    Besides, were going to start disobeying and ignoring American law anyway. And that goes ditto for most of the other Southern States.

    I would support their right to leave, so long as they clearly understood what they were losing when they left. They couldn't rely on the US for anything - at all. No social security, no welfare, no DOT helping keep the roads running smoothly. They'd be considered another country, so they couldn't call other states without incurring much larger charges on their phone bills, and while they already have state police, etc, they'd have to beef them up to handle border patrol, because border patrol is federal. I think there's a lot that maybe people don't think about when they talk about wanting to secede.

    Above you said they were lacking intellectual capacity, and had second grade naivety.

    Im saying those 35% have a right to self governance. And the other 65% can stay with the union if they like. Liberty is an individual right.

    Consider that 35% of texas is 3x as many people as the entire 13 colonies.
