You're losing me with every successive post. No, the Constitution is a LAW. It is a legal document Buc. There is no esoteric stuff about "natural law" in there. The States signed a legally binding contract, and they knew what they were doing. You are not allowed to secede and the LAW says so.



You're trying to re-write history to fit your worldview. A worldview I largely share. But I can't ignore facts sorry. If Texas or New Hampshire wants to leave they must get permission from the US. If they leave without permission they have violated clear contract law.

I mentioned it because it was a secession too. I'm hoping the EU breaks up next. Power needs to be diffused....we're all safer that way.

No we're not. There's strength in numbers. America is able to afford its military because 300 million Americans produce 1/4 of the entire planets economic output. That scale is critical to keeping the county safe. (Yes it is mis-used in empire building but that's another topic). 50 state armies would be tremendously inefficient and a mess.
