Actually, even the Supreme

Actually, even the Supreme Court decision cited in some of the newspaper articles on the petitions says secession is legal (whatever that means - was the Declaration of Independence legal?), but it can't be unilateral.

Petitioning the federal government to peacefully give a State permission to leave is perfectly legal even by Supreme Court rulings.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
