Secession, the coward's way out
In reference to all the talk of secession; a coward runs from a problem, a courageous person works on solutions. We split from England all those years ago primarily so that we could have the right to choose our leaders and vote for our government. We have that right. The President that people do not like and that they are talking secession over was elected in accordance with the laws of our nation, as crafted by the legislators we choose to represent us. If you don't like the result...there is another election in 2016, and another after that in 2020. If you don't like the laws, your Representatives are elected every two years, your Senators every six. Vote...that is how we make ourselves heard. We tried cutting and running in the mid-1800s. That is the cowards way out. Let me be absolutely clear...if you are seriously pushing for secession, you are a coward. Thousands of men and women sacrificed to give us the nation we have, and though we're not perfect we're about the best game on this rock. Children whine when they don't get what they want. Adults realize that is reality, and move on to the next problem. So stop being a bunch of crybabies and start acting like Americans.
