Is secession going to be a natural step?

Something that has been written very little about in Europe, is growing movements and several debates in the US about secession. Secession means that a state or a part of a state can secede from the rest of the state or the entire union. These discussions have been fueled by the growing Tenth Amendment movement which have many followers.

The Tenth Amendment

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

There have been several meeting within the North American Secessionist Convention. Although mostly liberal and mostly tired of foreign wars and such, this is also something to add to the mix.

Texas Governor Rick Perry have suggested Texans might at some point get so fed up they would want to secede from the union.

Of course most of this is just talk, but this growing movement and increasing voices will be more and more heard as the crisis goes on and Obama’s socialism gain further momentum. Something to keep an eye on in the future.
