Ron Paul: ‘Secession is a deeply American principle’

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) said Monday that secession was a “deeply American principle,” amid a growing number of people petitioning the White House to let their states secede from the U.S.

“Secession is a deeply American principle. This country was born through secession. Some felt it was treasonous to secede from England, but those ‘traitors’ became our country’s greatest patriots,” the former presidential candidate wrote in a post on his House website. “There is nothing treasonous or unpatriotic about wanting a federal government that is more responsive to the people it represents.”

He continued: “If the possibility of secession is completely off the table there is nothing to stop the federal government from continuing to encroach on our liberties and no recourse for those who are sick and tired of it.” ...

Secession, American principle or not, is going to be pretty hard to pull off. Most, if not all, of the governors of the supposed secession states are not for secession. The communities are mixed and very few voters would truly want out of the Union even if it were offered free and clear. How many states, red or blue, turn down federal funds now? My guess is not very many. In fact, most state legislatures are jumping through many hoops to hopefully stay in line for the next federal handout.

If you really feel strongly about seceding, it is more realistic that you find a way to leave the country as an individual or a family, as I have done. Not only can you move, live, and work in a country that is already established, but when the smoke is clear you can return to the United States. I have been fortunate in the fact that I have missed the first Obama term and I'm praying to remain abroad throughout the next.

I do realize that signing a petition for secession is more of a symbolic gesture, and if I didn't have to sign up for certain websites, I would probably add my name to the list, but there is no way that it will really happen. It's far easier to make changes for yourself and your family than to try and change an entire state.

On the contrary, manstealing is a capital offense in Scripture (Ex. 21:16; 1 Tim 1:10), same as murder. Therefore, anyone involved in, or an accessory to, African chattel slavery morally *deserves* to die. And since the South struck the 1st blow, starting a War resulting in said deaths, responsibility for its consequences is theirs.

What strikes me again is, your special pleading for the rights & property of Southern white men. Sherman is a war criminal, you say, but the thousands of slaveowners who stole the liberties & broke up the families of millions of Africans over several generations earns no equivalent censure from you, whether it's directly relevant or not.

these comments remind me that once an economic system finds success off the slavery and harm of others, its hard to stop it......

this evil trade captured the economics and expansion of the South, even though most whites were not slave holders.

after their freedom, the slaves should have been given 40 acres of land. this would have changed american history.

"I still advise the Negroes to buy land. Buy it anywhere you can get it. Be a free holder, and no powers on earth can keep you down. If the Negroes do not give this subject atention very soon they will see their mistake when it will be too late.....

"I look forward to the day when the entire Continent will be cut up into little flourishing farms. I urge the Negroes to get ready to move off in the mighty march. Get land and cultivate farms--the farmer is a freeman indeed."

I value the lives of all men and desire that none should perish. I desire the North did not have a single person of any ethnicity perish over this issue, and desire that not a single person in the south had perished over this issue. I submit that when two peoples are going in different directions they ought to peaceably separate as in the example of Abraham and Lot. You however, submit that the south deserved more than what she received and you submit that the war criminal Sherman was somehow merciful. Terrible.

Northern soldiers, & Lincoln, did not fight to free the slaves (at least at 1st, that was unthinkable for most racist Northerners), they fought to preserve the Union.

So far as I'm concerned, the South deserved worse than they got for starting an unnecessary war.

While I concur with many of Paul's policy goals, his historical analysis is dead wrong & plays into the hands of leftist critics like Bill Maher (who was apparently too ignorant to refute him in detail). Lincoln's only choice was to capitulate in the face of Confederate aggression, or fight.

Does anyone seriously think there would've been no fighting had Lincoln allowed Secession to stand? Think of “Bloody Kansas.” The South was hungry for territory to expand slavery into, even in Latin America.

Sucession, yes, the rebels should have done the right thing and not rebelled. They could have also freed their slaves. The Civil War was not really Lincoln's fault.

Many slaves died at the hands of their masters before the Civil War, too bad it took that many men to correct it.

By the way, Too Close to Kooky [Ron Paul].

Blacks of his day were certainly smarter than many white people seem to be; they knew perfectly well what the Proclamation implied, & that even such partial emancipation, absent further Congressional action which Lincoln did not yet have, was better than none.
So what does it matter what his opinions of racial differences were, however flawed? He did the right thing regardless.
