Nearly one-quarter of Americans believe that states have the right to secede, according to a recent poll from Rasmussen Reports — up 10 percentage points in two years.

The latest poll is just one of many that shows that Americans have “serious and growing concern about the federal government,” according to Scott Rasmussen, founder and president of Rasmussen Reports.

According to the phone survey released Sunday, 24 percent of Americans believe that states should be able to withdraw from the United States to form their own country, if they want. Nearly 60 percent (59) of Americans say they don’t believe states have the right to secede, while 16 percent are undecided.

“We do see that people are concerned about the federal government in a variety of ways,” Rasmussen told CNSNews.com. “51 percent believe that it’s a threat to individual liberties.

    If states with large urban populations (read large tax bases) seceded, the remaining nation would wither.

    If rural states seceded, they would fail economically for lack of a tax base — no government services like police and fire protection could be afforded, fees for judicial and healthcare services could only be afforded by the rich, so that’s whom citizens would rely upon with indentured servitude. Fuck that!

    THE CONSTITUTION LIMITS GOVERNMENTS ACTION, NOT WE THE PEOPLE, ANY POWER NOT DELIGATED TO THE FED OR STATE IS RESERVED TO THE PEOPLE.,

  3. Shows once again how spectacularly misinformed many Americans are!

    Secession as defined by quasi-legalistic agitators was the absurd theory that any party – in this case, a state – is able to terminate its contract (ratification of the federal Constitution) *without the consent of the other contractual parties* (the other states) and preemptively, *in anticipation of a breach of contract,* rather than as a reaction to an actual violation of the terms of the existing agreement among the parties.

    The scam is evident if you know anything about our real history: slaveholder secessionists in our history cited the anti-slavery “personal liberty laws” passed in several northern states as “breach of contract”, while themselves champed this exact form of “states’ rights” nullification of national law as a prerogative apparently guaranteed only to slave states.

    The inconsistency of the slaveholders’ position reveals the true nature of secession, a power grab, a desperate gamble by an economic elite whose position in southern society had been consistently deteriorating even as its members were becoming fabulously wealthy. Sound at all familiar?

    sorry asshole….but the constitution clearly states that states can separate from the union….Abraham Lincoln violated state sovereignty when he declared war on the south…the secessioinists were totally within their rights to leave…..

  4. replace that with Nazi government people will see them what they really are …

  5. i can’t wait to see the first state do it… then they will be invaded.. er.. liberated.. in a humanitarian effort.

  6. The war of northern aggression was never about slavery, old mole. It was always about money, power, and control. Weak minds believe the history books as written by the victors. The victors were so needy to win as to allow the terrorist campaign of Sherman, a stain forever on their hands.
