Is Greece "seceding" from the EU? Or, is the EU forcing a separation from Greece? Say it ain't so because after all...secession is a dirty word and must NEVER be discussed...never!
So anyway, I thought secession was "illegal" (whatever that means) or is it only illegal here in the US because the Supreme Court says it's illegal (even though it isn't). I'm confused.
Whichever it is, legal, illegal, bad or good, what I don't see is Merkel calling forth 75 thousand troops to "preserve the Union...I mean EU?" Hmmm...something's not right here. In fact, why aren't the "secession is bad" Lincolnians complaining through the UN and demanding that Merkel enforce the perpetual Union of the European countries? Or, how about another Lincoln argument that a contract can only be broken by both parties agreeing?Greece has been off and on about leaving the EU. The EU has been on and off about separating from Greece. What if Greece doesn't want to leave the EU and instead is content to suck off it's neighboring Union members in perpetuity? And what if the EU wants to separate from the entitlement minded Greeks but they refuse to leave; under Lincoln's argument, the EU must keep feeding the entitlement stomachs of the Greeks. Why? Because, as we're reminded over and over and over, a contract cannot be broken unless both parties agree to break it. That and secession is ALWAYS bad.
Or is secession bad after all? I suspect the Greeks and/or the EU doesn't feel that way right about now.
Folks, we have to stop trembling out of fear to discuss the inalienable right of the people to self-determination. If We the People believe our only solution is to "get our guy into office." well, then, not only has the battle been lost, but the entire war for liberty has been lost...and We the People brought all of this down on ourselves. But the Founders, Framers and Ratifiers saw this possibility coming and left us options:
1. Nullification of anti-constitutional laws passed by Congress
2. Call and Article V Amendment Convention and fix the Constitution
3. Interposition by our Sheriffs
4. Separating from the Union
These are REAL solutions, not the baloney we're offered by the national government and national campaigns.
The real question is, will you shake off your serf status and join the liberty movement?
