Just silly

I read this last night at The Nation, and I can't help but laugh. Blue states want to secede from the US. First of all, I'm no Constitutional scholar, but I think there is no real legal framework for secession, and the only states that tried it got their asses handed to them in the Civil War. That all goes without mentioning that I love my country and I am an American first and foremost before I am a Texan. The idea of quittig never occurred to me, and I'm not entirely sure why it has occurred to some others. It seems pretty obvious to me that this is not the kind of thought that is ver productive at the moment.
