  • Have at it, Oklahoma! Chances are that Oklahoma receives more money from the federal government than their citizens pay in, so that leave more money for the rest of us.

    They are not "in the process" of doing anything but declaring their constitutionally granted rights of sovereignty.  The same rights that have been eroding steadliy over the past 50 or so years in the name of FDR, LBJ and BHO.

  • Texas v. White, United States Supreme Court, (1868)
    In 1868, the Supreme Court ruled that secession from the United States was illegal. The court wrote, "The Constitution, in all its provisions, looks to an indestructible Union, composed of indestructible States." The court did allow some possibility of the divisibility "through revolution, or through consent of the States
