The more I think my way through the concept of secession, the more I like the idea. Heres why:
When the regime begins to push our people harder than theyre now doing, and when the coming economic hardships and regulatory insanity cause even greater levels of anger, disillusionment, resolve amongst the people to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, I think we may see one or more red state legislatures finally draft Acts of Secession, which will then be signed by all legally vested parties and presented to Washington.
Should Texas lead the way to the exits, I predict that at least half a dozen other states will follow in rapid succession, joining Texas in a new American Union. This would all be done without a single drop of blood shed between the rebellious states and the federals. This is the 21st century, not the 19th. No blood will be spilled over this purely political divorce.
Once several red states have disengaged themselves from the parasitic maw of Washington, the old union states will begin to falter, as the economic engine that feeds the Socialist system in this country will be too starved to meet its obligations. More red states will flee as the days darken. Collapse and calamity in the blue states will ensue, as generationally crippled millions feed upon each other, then storm the gates of power, demanding to be fed.
Sheer bedlam will rule, and the statist infrastructure will crumble under the weight of too little real production, and too many takers to sustain.
When the old union reaches that level of failure, we can expect to see passionate entreaties to the former red states to reunite with the old union in a restored constitutional republic. Leftist ideals will be cast aside and burned, as reality proves what falsehoods they always were. Imagine an entire nation mugged by reality.
Its at this point, that I see the re-unification of the country.
