It would be treason, but only by our laws.<quoted text>
This made me think, an act of treason is to fight against your country in your country and give aide and comfort to the enemy. If it's a peaceful secession(?) without bloodshed, how does this constitute treason. With that being said, what makes our NAI citizens live, educate, and police themself without the laws of U.S. being invoked? For instance, when Anna Nicole Smith died on land owned by the Seminole Indians, the Seminole Indians had the right to take over the investigation without outside help from whatever county the death occurred in. They are able to make the rules for the land they own without very little local, state or federal interferrence and that's not considered treason. Of course, we did come in and take their land from them, so maybe we're the ones that have committed a wrong by running them from their land, killing them and then declaring the U.S. our's. If they rose up against those of us that are not NAI, would they be committing treason? Something to ponder. What's your opinion?
Yes, we certainly stole the land we call America. We should always remember this. I am always reminded of this on Thanksgiving. For me, the holiday is one that is apologetic to the natives of this land,at least in spirit.
Yes, the petition to secede right now is of a peaceful nature, but will it continue to be peaceful? Many are already saying they might take it to another level if the peaceful petition is not successful. I figure they are just blustering, but who knows?
