I worked in Japan for 4 years. When I returned permanently I got down on my knees at Charlotte Airport & kissed the ground. By all means anyone that wants to go there should. Meanwhile I will just ROTFLMAO.

<quoted text> I can't give you an answer to that AZ. But, there are some I am sure. And I am sure there are some that oppose. Biggest reason why the feds won't support secession is money. The biggest reason why secession wouldn't work is money.
As I said before, states don't need the feds but feds need the states. But I will throw one at you. As a resident of North Carolina, you are required to be licensed in North Carolina in order to operate a vehicle. Or carry a concealed weapon legally, or work as a doctor, lawyer or accountant. Why is there not a National ID instead of state ID's?
Because states are given the right to grant licenses as part of the shared powers clause of the Constitution. What point are you trying to make?

If Texas or any other state no longer wants shared powers and wants to make a go of on their own by forming a new government, what is the hang up on why they shouldn't be allowed to?

Because it is an act of treason against the United States. Did you not learn anything from history?

Question for ya, because I don't know, is an "ID" considered a license? If so, for what?

Certainly. Evolution has not changed us sense we have become 'civilized'. Civilization only started less than ten thousand years ago, and more like five thousand for it to really get going. That is not very long in evolutionary terms. It is a blip. The whole of modern humans is a blip in evolution. If we go extinct anytime soon, humans would be a failure in evolutionary terms. And successful species would live for several tens of millions of years. Humans as they are now have only been around for one hundred thousand years give or take.
The cold war possibility of full nuclear war could have wiped out humans. Global warming could wipe out humans. Who knows?

And yes, war is often a result of our instinct to guard our territory for hunting or other resources. Ape groups kill other ape groups that intrude upon territory. In fact, they are quite brutal about it. They eat the enemy, even though they rarely eat any meat. This is thought to show any others who survived not to dare come in the territory.
Apes will even go out and hunt them down like an army.
Humans are not that much different than our ancestor apes. We have a bigger brain, but we do not always use it to its capacity.

Do you think that an act to challenge and undermind the soverignty of the United States is one that is productive to it's growth and future well being? Why weren't the Confederate States given "permission" to secede? An act of tyranny. Check out Andrew Jackson and his fight with John C Calhoun in South Carolina's first attempt to secede in the 1830's. The USA will never grant permission. These people live in a world of altered reality.

I don't know. An ID can cash your check, get you in a night club, or go to the 7 11 and buy you a beer. That is about the only license I think it can grant you, so, in that respect it probably is.

I guess my question was the definition of "treason" and how it applies. If Tx wanted to pull away from the other states, how does it undermine the sovereignty of the rest of the country? I would think TX would be the "Lone Ranger", out in the cold by it's self.
