Will never happen. Silly speculation.
There are many ways to rebel... throw every monkey wrench you can.
I think “Funcational” is a rassiss term. My dog whistle detector was activated. Let’s check with Chris Matthews.
At this point, there is not enough motivation for secession. But there will be if Obama overextends his new flexibility or if it becomes evident that the election was won with massive fraud.
“Many will actively subvert process and policy to waste the time, money and patience of every Federal employee”
Any specific suggestion on exactly how to do this? File EPA complaints against Lefties? Filing religious exemption to 0-care by claiming to be a Muzzy(no can’t even bring myself to fake that) or Amish?
We should just concede the FedGov to the socialists. It is lost. Having said that, we need to create 50 states with Republican governors a legislatures that will wield the power of the 10th amendment up to and including the option of secession. There was a time when the state was superior to the Federal, it can happen again. It is the way the Constitution originally codified our republic.
So long as it’s funcational ...
I just learned a new word. It’s sounds king of porny.
The Constitution is a pact between the several States, for purposes of forming a nation-level government. The Constitution belongs to the States and the federal behemoth MUST comply with it, which it increasingly is not.
Hence, it is the States that must take action. If even one of the States announces that all federal income tax filings will be kept and not sent along to the IRS, that could be enough to crack the egg shell. Then the fun would REALLY begin!
I still believe Article V allows the states to Amend the Constitution despite a recalcitrant or even hostile Congress. And no, I don’t believe a Constitutional Convention could discard the current Constitution, since you’d never get enough states to ratify a new one. Term limits, anyone?
