The decision in Texas v. White (1869) is here.”
I can’t believe people care about the self-serving opinion of a bunch of hand picked Federal employees in black robes regarding our natural and inalienable right to self-government...
I mean did we ask the english courts to rule that we had the right to withdraw from the British union, or the english king for that matter?
I know its ironic because theses petitions are latterly asking the King (Obama) for that right. Something we never think of doing in 1776. The point is people either have the right to form their own government and govern themselves or they don’t.
If they don’t then America was a fraud from day one. All Obama’s no answer will do is prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that violence will be both nessary and prodent course of actions.
That those wishing to reclaim their rights and withdraw from the distrcutive union would then have to formulate a plan in which to entrap its government in a no-win senereio. This is not a particularly difficult thing to do from the inside, even easier still when you caculate in the numerous foreign threats.
A nation of prisoners is likely to have a prison break against which there will be no outside forces to restore order. Of course the underlining truth is, Leftist states in their heart desire this separation almost as much as we do.
They are not all blind to the reality that with respect to all that our common government is imposing upon us we are unable to live & work together in political peace.
So in my mind a no answer represent significant political progress on the road to Independence, pariculary from someone like Obama. A yes answer on the other hand is not so helpful as we are quite obviously no where yet ready to take advantage of it.
