[quote:Laura Bow:MV8yMzgxNzU5XzQwNzkzMDYwX0VCMjA4RTY5] [quote:Anonymous Coward 48373344:MV8yMzgxNzU5XzQwNzkyNTY3X0NCMzNCRTQ0] [quote:Anonymous Coward 48373344:MV8yMzgxNzU5XzQwNzkyNDg3XzU0NzJGOUZE] why dont all liberals move east of the mississipi river and all conservatives move west..or vice versa, then see who fares better. or all conservatives move into a 5 state region, take over the political establishment which would make the other side move out or vice versa... no cessation required. all political allies move together..thats the point... give it a whirl... [/quote] a state like texas is perfect for conservatives...hot dry climate to the south, beaches....mountain colder, snowy climate to the north, etc.... i say all conservatives just pick up and move to texas... done right? [/quote] If you had read the article, it wasn't as simple as that... [/quote]
Secession fever is spreading. In red and blue pockets of America, disgruntled residents are organizing efforts to split up with their home states, from liberals in southern Arizona to conservatives in rural Colorado and Western Maryland.
The biggest obstacle for these movements would seem to be the Constitution, which requires secessionists to get the blessing of their state Legislature and then Congress.
There might be an easier way, says Eugene Kontorovich, a law professor at Northwestern University, in a provocative post at Volokh Conspiracy. Rather than forming a new “51st” state, how about seceding to join an existing state?
“The Constitution’s requirement of home-state and congressional consent only clearly applies to the creation of a ‘new state,’ ” Mr. Kontorovich writes.
