SecessionSubmitted by One Free American on Sat, 01/12/2013 - 02:37
I just read that Sean Hannity said secession may happen if the federal government continues making tax rates too high.
"Hannity rejected the idea that secession is necessarily a “radical concept,” arguing that the Declaration of Independence is itself a “radical document.”
I know some at DP may not like Hannity, but what do you think of his views? I think this is a sign that if a mainstream conservative like him can foresee a scenario where states might secede then it must be on lots of people's minds, not just those who signed those White House petitions. Hannity may as well have added gun registration and/or gun confiscation as another reason for states wanting to secede.
I know most or probably all libertarians believe in a state's right to secede. I certainly do, as an American and free human being. I've been reading about this for a while, and find it fascinating. I'm not advocating secession as I think we should explore other options first, like nullification, civil disobedience, and continuing to educate people.
