Don't confuse secession with secession

It's one thing to secede from your state and form a new state. It's a VERY different thing to secede from the country! Eagle eye Ryan Txanson alerted me to a resolution in Minnesota's 5th district yesterday to secede from the United States. That's a really bad idea. We fought a big war over this very thing. Lots of people died. Conversely, I think seceding from a state (to form or join a new state) can actually be a smart idea. But I would NEVER suggest seceding from the United States. That's insane. What are they thinking in the 5th District??

  1. It is certainly insane and thankfully the only insane folks considering this notion was the Republican Party of the MN 5th District. Inasmuch as Republicans in the 5th CD are as numerous as Protestants in the Vatican their resolution went nowhere
