    I’d hate to see secession. The States need to take back their sovereignty and leave the Federal Government with the very limited power it was intended to have. We call them “States” because that’s what they were supposed to be. Independent, sovereign states. The central government was to provide things like common defense and act as mediator in disputes among the States, not rule over them. The original constitution, The Articles of Confederation, gave the central government very little binding power at all, so you can see the intent of the Founders.
