“I have a law degree, but I must have missed that part. Where in the Constitution is the right to secede?”

“They can file until the cows evolve into space-faring creatures, and it still will not change the fact that the State's Rights issue was resolved by the Civil War over a century ago.
No state can secede from the Union; in fact, there's no mechanism for such a thing to happen.
If these folks filing (and signing) these things would simply think it through, their actions would result in the Balkanization of the United States, with each small 'sovereign country' fighting for survival just as the Balkans did in Europe.
..and wouldn't that actually play right into what some claim the current Administration wants--a destroyed nation with radically diminished power and influence?”

“Well, obviously you haven't studied other countries where abortion is banned and women get illegal (and very unsafe) abortions at a huge risk to their own health. Abortion hasn't done half of the damage in the US as religious intolerance has.”
“@ Marco...That was my poor attempt at making a joke. Shrimp to us is like what diamonds on sneakers is to Ivy. what's wrong with neck-bones? absolutely nothing. As a matter of fact, I made a big pot of smoked neck-bones with Pinto beans,over rice. and a big pitcher of fresh lemon-aid. Oh! and I had cornbread.( cooked in a iron skillet on top of the stove)”
