Not just states' rights...but to escape the evergrowing federal government. That is why they seceded. That is why, at its core, so many are signing the secession petitions today.

This is the mother of all problems for civilization.

The gop is just a pacifier for smaller government people...conservatives. the gop gives them a voice to prevent violent outbursts.

All this was discussed much more openly last generation. But the media controlled the conversation by labelling anyone pro-south as racist. Right now the media is calling those that some the secession petitions kooky. Why alienate their own people when they need more people? Cuz they fear where it could lead to.
