  •  Secession is possible (5+ / 0-)
    "through consent of the States."
    Thing is, they'd have to either be sooooooo oboxious none of the other states wants it to remain in the Union and kicks the offending state out or so persuasive that the other states agree to release the state from the Union.

    I don't see either of those scenarios happening, which effectively eliminates secession.

      certain states in the past...which I was semi-joking about. However, at least that is a power actually allowed under the Constitution and it would take a consensus among the states that certain states no longer deserved the privilege of being part of our union. Personally, I think it would be a welcome change to let some of these would-be secessionists know that many of us are fed us with their sh*t and not even sure their state deserves continued membership in the US. So, you know who you are, red states. You're ON NOTICE!

      •  When these states secede they do so as hostiles (7+ / 0-)

        and therefore would have to be treated as hostile nations, makiing them part of the neo-Axis of Evil.
