Go ahead, secede

Nathaniel Batchelder November 21st, 2012

The decisive victory of the Obama- Biden ticket is prompting petitions in many Southern states urging secession from the United States. The idea merits consideration.

Becoming two separate nations would reduce political tensions and permit Southern states to govern themselves as they prefer. It would also reduce the U.S. budget, as half the spending in some of those states is federal money, and most are home to U.S. military bases.
