Here’s a Citizen Who Understands Lincoln’s Theory of the Union

In response to the YouTube video that I posted earlier where a D.C. woman asks if the government would today bomb any county, city or state that seceded, A.P. writes:
"The answer is YES they would. But they will blame the bombing on Al Qaeda or Russia or most likely Iran. It will intend to serve as a lesson to the states that they need the government’s protection."
"This is exactly how the Mafia works. You pay for "protection" and if you opt out, your store gets burned to the ground or you get mugged and beaten until you get with the program. This is exactly how the federal government works. So yes, there is a risk to secession or even a re-affirmation of the 9th and 10th Amendments, but they can’t bomb everyone."
