Above: Post-Secessionist map, as envisioned by Progressives
SecessionSecession has been at the top of the alternative news this week and I think an important point is being missed in the discussion. Most of the talking points have been centered around whether or not secession is legal.Now stop and think about this for a minute. The reason the petitions have begun is because we have a government that is acting illegally, with impunity, every day. What difference does it make if secession is legal? We have to follow the law and they don’t? (In point of fact, it is legal to secede despite the flawed Supreme court precedent to the contrary.)As Thomas Jefferson said, we must “separate from our companions only when the sole alternatives left, are the dissolution of our Union with them, or submission to a government without limitation of powers. Between these two evils, when we must make a choice, there can be no hesitation.”
This is exactly the situation we are in. And we are in this situation because the states failed to follow Jefferson’s advice and be “watchful to note every material usurpation on their rights; to denounce them as they occur in the most peremptory terms…”
As of the writing of this letter, 6 of the top 20, and 16 of the top 40, petitions seek secession for their state. These petitions show the level of frustration we are feeling with our Federal government and give us an avenue to express it. I don’t believe the White House will respond in any meaningful way to these petitions, but it is a way for Americans to make a symbolic stand. It is a type of 9/12 march on our capitol. Personally, I signed the petition for the state of Tennessee.
Here at Liberty Legal Foundation, we are investigating, discussing and weighing every available avenue for restoring rule of law in this country. We welcome your input and as always we press on…
