You can never predict the outcome of things like this.


On that statement I agree.

“The People” did not vote for secession from England either. It was a small group of men who actually made the decision.

The Democrats are the Loyalists. The Republican Party represents no one. In fact our faction could be called “Nationalist”. (Taking a page from Spanish History textbook)

Whatever......... but I doubt it would happen that way today. When Texas left the union in 1861 it was done with a Secession Convention in which the Ordinance of Secession was adopted 166-8. In other words the people were represented.

This is not a fringe group of “wingnuts”

The wingnuts never define themselves as such. They're literally the last to know.
