Earlier we reported on a controversial resolution passed by Republicans in Wisconsin’s 6th regional district that would allow Wisconsin to secede from the United States if its residents decided to. UW-Milwaukee Professor of Governmental Affairs Mordecai Lee has come out against secession.
Lee stated to WITI (video below):
“This is not cute. This is not funny, I’m not sure if we should take it seriously in the sense of even paying attention to it. I’m not really sure if we should take it as a funny joke of these peculiar, abhorrent, odd-ball activities, or if this is a signal — a kind of above-the-water-line iceberg that’s telling us things are still really divisive in America.”
“I think we need to put it pretty bluntly — talking about secession is being a traitor to America,” he added.
What do we then do when a government becomes destructive and over powered by money from off shore interests?
Thomas Jefferson once said “that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”
Is this not a tool just for this cause?
Delegates will get the final vote on if the“state sovereignty” resolution is included in the party platform at the convention in Milwaukee on May 2-4. The resolution passed with a large majority as reported by Eric, a delegate who attended the 6th district regoinal caucus and called into the The Rundown Live.
Should states be able to secede if the citizens so chose?
