I have wondered what would happen, if rumors are true, that there are movements about that encourage parts of states to leave the Union of these United States. This is not unlike the 1850’s, I suppose. But then, that led to a 4 year long war and many, many deaths. I wonder what would happen today if we were to be split like that. Would we go to war? Or would there be lawsuits galore? But would lawsuits be able to stop any separation?
I don’t know the answer, but I must admit I have a hard time seeing war out of it, but that appears to me to be the only way to force a rogue group back into the Union. Too many people would die and unlike the 1860’s the rampant energy to support one’s state just does not exist. There is no hunger for war like that.
So, legal or not, if a group decides to secede, there’s nothing that could be done about it…
But with the current hatred rampant, that may not be a bad thing.
