If you can’t beat them, QUIT!
That’s what some folks want to do. Secede. Leave the United States. Form their own country.
This author signed the petition for each State that was part of the Confederacy.
Peaceful secession won’t happen. Well, maybe, if every United States Citizen in each State renounces his/her citizenship, it might. (yeah, right) That’s because we all hold dual citizenship. We are citizens of the United States of America first and foremost, and citizens of a particular State secondarily. In fact, I’m not sure each of the separate 50 States has a clause in their State Constitutions defining State citizenship.
Be that as it may, for a State to leave the United States, is to deprive United States Citizens their rights as a U.S. Citizen. Thousands upon thousands of Americans killed each other, with the ultimate outcome saying a State cannot leave the Union.
But I think it would be interesting if more people signed a petition for a particular State than the total population of that State. It would send some sort of message, don’t you think?
