It is well to remember that people who belong to a group don’t always agree about everything. Over at the gift that keeps on giving, we see just that, as members of the Southern Heritage Preservation Group debate over the recent flurry of secession petitions we’ve heard so much about.
My vote goes with Mr. Tatum. John C. Hall, Jr., of Dublin, Georgia, can whine all he wants (he’s good at that, as we have seen), but he’s just full of hot air, because he’s not going to risk anything outside of some time at the keyboard. Then again, sometimes we have to take even saber-rattlers seriously.
Individuals are always free to secede from the United States. Be as good as your word, folks … renounce your citizenship and consider self-deportation, to borrow a recent phrase.
