    Even if we take that number at face value... 700,000 is like .2% of the population. And I'm sure just a fraction of that would actually be serious about such a notion.

      These people don't really know how our society and economy and government actually work.

      However, as a "meme", as a political concept that can be especially obstructionist if not destructive, it is a problem, and I think we can easily perform political "jiu-jitsu" on the secession-friendly out there.

      On a serious level, there should always be a tension between local, state and federal governance, even as we learn how to make these institutions work together for the greatest benefit for the people.

      You can't make this stuff up.
