Secession would be a last ditch effort if states rights are not upheld, that being said if Ron Paul took office he wouldn't get a free pass from me. I would hold his feet to the fire just like anyone else in public office SERVING the people. This isn't a sports team and if i vote for someone i don't cheer their every move, it's our job as Americans to scrutinize those serving us.
