      •  Weren't federal troops used to enforce... (0+ / 0-) desegregation? Ike sent in the Screaming Eagles to counter the National Guard sent to block the Little Rock Nine. Yes, secession has been a threat used in our past, but through the mediation of Henry Clay and the command of a 1950s GOP President, we've only had 1 Civil War. The South lost the last one and should they decide to "Rise Again," we might just let them. Means a lot less use of our troops once Global Warming floods all of Florida and much of the Missippi Valley! Great way to save tax dollars, since they get more money than they pay out!
