See ya–Signed C.S.A.

 

A fellow by the name of Marcus Ruiz Evans was on Fox’s Tucker Carlson program recently. He offered his stance on secession vis-à-vis California’s consideration. His position stood apropos for the Golden Bears because the Supreme Court in its Texas vs White decision of 1869 had offered a loophole bearing on the people’s consent to secede.

This bears, of course, on any understanding that Texas vs White had any legality in the first place in a “reconstructed” government of Southern states. The loophole was that secession could be legal and appropriate as long as the people of the other states approved it. This also was Evans’ justification for California seceding today (the other people say it’s okay) as opposed to the South’s in 1860-61.

According to Evans the South had not asked permission and anyway the South did not like equal rights for minorities (his words). Neither did the South want a good partnership with the North. And to top it off the South, as well, seceded violently. He is inaccurate in each and every. . . , but it doesn’t matter. Something can always be right for California or New York but never can it be right for Texas or Mississippi.

  1. I'm sorry that I missed the misinformed Evans on Tucker Carlson's show. It would be even funnier with video.

  2. This nation is a voluntary union of "free and independent States". The United States is a creation of the States which is to operate under delegated powers. There is no delegated power to prevent a State or States from seceding and without delegated powers, according to the plain wording of the 10th Amendment, the Federal Government may do NOTHING. California is free to secede. And their northern counties are should also be free to leave California to form the new State of Jefferson and remain in the union or secede. --Ron W

  3. Sometimes things are connected. I think CA depends on being part of the US and visa versa.

  4. Brock, Everyone in this country seemed to be all for that freedom and self-determination when it happened with the Soviet Union. Surely, they support the same for our people and our states. --Ron W

  8. If Kalifornia wants to leave the Union find. Great idea. Just do it and don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out. And should the South try again to form the CSA, I have just one thing to say to Yah all: Good and honorable gentlemen, how do I apply for citizenship? I would have zero issues with the term Yankee being referred to in the past tense.

  9. I should like to on record to express my willingness to donate financially, as God provides, as well as offer my unwavering support along with whatever permission is needed so that California, New York, and a few other unnamed states may secede as quickly as possible. If my dear home, Dixie, isn't allowed the right of secession then maybe we can skin the cat from another direction.
