Ron Paul recently suggested we should take another look at secession. The Left is infuriated. "That's craaaaaaaaaaazy talk!" "What a loon!" "I used to like this guy, but now I see that blah blah blah."
Some great comments from statists:
Mr. Paul, are you really comparing the former USSR with America under Obama?
Of course not; it would be a ridiculous comparison. The Soviet Union was more free.
And we all know how well that (secession) worked out last time in the 1860s…
We certainly do!
I used to respect Ron Paul until this came out. Even talking about seceding is un-American.
You say that as if it's a bad thing.
I think Texas should secede. They can even take Oklahoma with them, and all the right wing freaks from across the country can move down their. They can have their own government based on no taxes and no spending, and see how far they get.
Libertarians are more dangerous than conservatives. They cling to this crazy "don't tread on me" ideology. It's more destructive.
LO-freaking-L! This stuff parodies itself.
Consistent secessionists are, of course, anarchists. And it's about time we get the secession ball rolling. As one comment put it,
Secession leads to banana republics, anarchy and dictatorship.
One out of three ain't bad.
