Obama’s not the problem, he’s the symptom and the result.
The problem is a bloated government that maintains its power by giving out freebies to people who vote for more freebies.
If not secession, then a strong application of the 10th amendment is necessary to provide a place where these freebies are not given out so freely, nor are the productive citizens penalized in order to provide them.
The sorting process would then begin.
You are absolutely correct about the bloated government, but that is precisely why it will never go for a strong application of the 10th Amendment. That only leaves secession.
