Ron Paul, a United States Congressman, and alleged patriot, writes on his website:
If the Feds refuse to accept that and continue to run roughshod over the people, at what point do we acknowledge that that is not freedom anymore? At what point should the people dissolve the political bands which have connected them with an increasingly tyrannical and oppressive federal government? And if people or states are not free to leave the United States as a last resort, can they really think of themselves as free?But what of the millions and millions of Democratic voters that might live in the (hypothetically) seceding states -- what happens to them? Modern civil wars (for I think that is what this would entail) bode ill for them.
