There is nothing in the Constitution barring secession either. It need not have been stated by the Founders since it's a negative rights document and only confers delegated powers specifically enumerated.

You and Buc are the ones using "dubious" arguments.
I think you don't understand the issue of natural rights and negative rights along with delegated powers. If there is no delegated power, specifically enumerated then the feds have no authority to act in that area. As a fellow conservative, I would think you'd understand this idea as it's original intent and strict construction that conservatives claim to adhere to.
