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

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.
