    Should secession be legal ?

    This is inspired by a discussion on Madison's thread about the Quebec lotto winner.
    I have also read "The real Lincoln" recently.

    Should secession be legal?
    Why or why not?
    If it happens how should the government address it?

    freedom demands freedom to act.

    governments only restrict freedom.

    I'm more or less a direct descendant of Abraham Lincoln. Need I say more?

    I've never thought it was viable, or, at least very problematic for several reasons I've put out there before.

    Now - in this climate?! Not a chance. Nice idea. Good on paper. But reality, I think the "woke" would squish any State that did that, or even any group of states that did that - like a bug.

    The international woke trading. The international big tech woke. Local woke. Bordered woke States to whichever one(s) seceded. Woke banks. Jesus...look what they do NOW to people and nations? Woke intel agencies. Not even getting into the paid activists...who would be getting ways to derail your trains, and sabatoge your ports, etc, etc.
    DuckDuckGo is a leftist, Soros sponsored and financial contributor to the collective left. They are the proverbial wolf in sheeps clothing. They present themselves as an option away from the corrupt Google, when in fact...they are only a contrived option that really just gives money, and takes money from our ideological enemies. Qwant appears to be an option. Spread the word.

    It is the only way to put a stop to leftwits and Globalists that manufacture ways to bully the public.

    Secession, is the act of separating from the Union government.

    Whether the Union thinks it's legal or not, doesn't matter. The whole ACT OF SECESSION is a REJECTION of their law and government!

    Jesus Christ! You are not going to get PERMISSION to rebel!

    Long ago in the dark ages I went to school & passed (surprise!). In history I remember being taught that Texas was the only state that could "legally" leave the union. If I remember right it had something to do with it being a country before it joined the US. Is that true, I have no idea but that's what I remember.
