<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?

Again, question, how is it "treason"?

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.

The most primitive part of the human brain is actually...reptilian.....or evolved from reptiles.In any event, cockroaches have been around for hundreds of millions of years, but I find I dislike, their quality of life....the technological advances of the last three hundred years, have far outstripped the emotional development of the human brain.a We are no more intelligent than the Romans, yet look at what we have to adjust to and deal with today.

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?

The Indians got screwed.History shows, again and again, how the strong dominate the less strong.Texas is VITAL to the interests of America.Rhode Island can't secede.Because....then Texans would think that Texas could secede.Texas is a quarter of the size of the continental United States.Twenty four million people.THINK America imports a lot of oil? See how much MORE oil America would have to import without Texas oil and gas.WITHOUT the refining capacity of Texas Gulf Coast, America loses 25 percent of its refining capacity...say hello to MONUMENTAL fuel and heating oil shortages.Texas also supplies a HUGE amount of human resources to the American military.Without the Port of Houston, the second largest port in America, and the LARGEST in international tonnage, America would be crippled.America, and Americans, need Texas.

I agree on most of this. But the main reason it is thought we evolved a large brain, was to adapt without physically changing. We can create and innovate to adapt to climate changes, and various food sources.
I think we can emotionally handle today's pressures, but I am not sure if we as a species can handle the responsibility of our creations. As our creations are causing climate change in ways that we may not be able to adapt to survive. Who knows?
I think our pressures are much less than many of our ancestors. Just getting food was an ordeal for them. We do not have that problem so much anymore.

It would be treason, but only by our laws.
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?
