Give it a rest.

Maybe when you do.

But let me point out that this wasn't a criticism of Perry because nowhere in his disjointed secession remarks did he say or even imply that Texas had a special right to walk out of the Union. He is no doubt aware of the Constitution and it's limitations. So if anything, I was criticizing the bone-headed author of the article and not Perry. All he did was make some remarks that he'll spend the campaign trying do defend when asked about them.

“All he did was make some remarks that he’ll spend the campaign trying do defend when asked about them.”

Yes, but that’s true if a candidate is seen as a serious right-leaning candidate by the government-media complex, and if s/he says anything meaningful. As long as they say lots of pretty nothings, it’s hard to take their words out of context and twist them into slanders.

(And, for the 400th time - I’m not a Perry supporter - just observing the situation.)

Any state that gives up their right of secession does a disservice to the republic of our founders. The Constitution is (still) silent on the issue.

"The withdrawal of a State from a league has no revolutionary or insurrectionary characteristic. The government of the State remains unchanged as to all internal affairs. It is only its external or confederate relations that are altered. To term this action of a Sovereign a 'rebellion' is a gross abuse of language."

               President Davis
