FROM A FACEBOOK DISCUSSION WITH A RELATIVE
(who’s both a hard left Democrat and a Gooferment employee)
*** begin quote ***
Aside from the fiscal death cliff of that would destroy the state from within, your guy Scalia threw water on this . “If there was any constitutional issue resolved by the Civil War, it is that there is no right to secede,” wrote Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia in 2010.
Other than fringe libertarians there are no legal conversation that supports a states right to secede.
Don’t let states fool you- they depend on the federal government for their existence. All the noise about states being independent of the federal government is a game played by republican governors and legislators.

Well, I’m sure if you look at the USSR documents, their collapse wasn’t covered either.
“Right to secede”? Hmmm, interesting concept.
All peoples have the right to self-determination. … All peoples have the right to self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.

The UN says I do.
The question becomes that when NH secedes, will the Federal Gooferment roll tanks on us?
Personally, I don’t care if they do or don’t . If they do, then the fraud of a peaceful benevolent Union is unmasked. If they don’t, we’re free of the tyranny of the “District of Corruption”. Either was, liberty wins.
p.s., The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution reserves all the unstated rights to The States or to The People. Since the “Right to Secede” is UNSTATED, then I must have it.
