Are the States Going to Secede?

The Charger Bulletin

Letter to the Editor

By Ross Weiner

Are states planning to leave the Union? There been talk of this since the re-election of President Barack Obama because there been a petition circulation on asking for all 50 states to secede from the United States.

Technically, in the United States Constitution states do have the right to secede from the United States. But what is the reality of this happening?

The reality of this happening is slim to none. The reason is the states get money from the federal government to operate their budget. Most of the states are pretty much bankrupt and they rely on the federal government for money. No state Legislature or Governor in their right mind would secede from the United States of America if they wanted there state to be bankrupt.

Finally, I want to touch up on the fact that the State Legislature would have to vote on seceding the Union. Most of the state Legislature would not vote for seceding the union because they need federal money.

So many people are reacting to the petition of the states seceding as a something that is real. Well the fact is nothing is going to happen. This petition was not motivated because of race. This petition was motivated because it our federal government violates the United States Constitution and the public trust of the people of the United States.

I am not advocating for the secession I am advocating for we the people to throughout all corrupt politician who represent us in the federal or state level.
