Succession is illegal and treasonous.
Texas v. White (1869)
Who was the Roberts in the 5-3 Texas v. White case?
However, let’s say a state (oh, let’s say California) decides to give away various ‘rights’ to illegal aliens, and thereby bankrupts itself. To make good on all the Gov’t largess it has promised it’s citizens (legal and illegal) it must recieve huge “dontations” from other states.
Realizing that financial responsibilty is a fool’s game; other states soon decide to grant themselves obscene ‘rights’ at the expense of the other states. For argument’s sake, let’s pretend these states are along the Eastern seaboard and Michigan.
Now, a few states have effectively created a case of indentured servitude (slavery) for every other state - and since no state can succeed; there only recorse is a violent and bloody revolution.
The seeds have been sown, and the Libtards are using ample fertilizer to reap a crop that no one wants.
OF COURSE secession is illegal. You secede when you believe the sovereign power has gone outside of its authority to govern. No sovereign is going to allow secession to be a legal act.
Anyone can claim anything is illegal and treasonous. If the state govt. decide to do so, then it will be up to the people to decide.
Putting it another way: remember that your Founding Fathers broke the law when they seceded from Britain.
Secession is always, always going to be against the law. The question must not be “is it legal to secede?” but “is it right and necessary to secede?”. That is the question your Founding Fathers asked themselves.
The States must insist upon their sovereign status, and the days of “these United States” must return. Otherwise the US will become a top-heavy Soviet.
Tell that to the Framers.
