The Fifty State Solution

Disgusted by the prospect of Hillary Clinton and/or Donald Trump having the power of the presidency? I certainly am. And for full disclosure here, I don’t think any individual should have the powers that have accrued to the president over this country’s development. As has often been stated, “It’s not the abuse of power, it’s the power to abuse” that we should worry about. Even with some substitute candidates we’d still face the power to abuse problem.

I am a firm believer in “secession” as a solution to all our political problems.
Of course, unwinding the Federal Gooferment’s knots would be a challenge, if the political elite would permit it. Argh!
Clearly imho Texas, Alaska, Hawaii, Utah, North Dakota, and New Hampshire have substantial support and have taken some steps to facilitate it.
Who will be the first out?
