Enlarge this map and study it for a bit. A professor went through the history books and drew new state lines/boundaries had every secessionist movement in America were successful. I can't say that he included the Civil War in his factoring, but let's ignore that just for the sake of this discussion.
For my allies who are Secessionists, Anarchists and non Constitutionalists, would this map keep you in the Constitutional fold - predicated, of course, that every state adheres to the bare minimum of Natural Laws articulated in the Bill of Rights, and that each state defended her Citizens the way the Founders intended from the predations of FedGov.
In theory, this map would put like-minded groups together, governing themselves with no need to suffer the lowest common denominator or people they simply can not find agreement.
This is, of course, a discussion for after we win.
I would support such a United States of America under 2 conditions (the same 2 conditions I insist must be reformed today.) First: No state may impose any law that infringes the Natural Law of a Citizen. This means a Texan can walk to New York with his pistol on his hip and rifle on his back, and not be molested even once by .gov. Second: I would insist that each state relaim and use the Tenth Amendment, as intended, to beat the snot our of the Feds when they tried to get all touchy-feely.
This post is a slight diversion from my One Week series, as it considers the Aftermath, an Afrtermath that retains the Constitution.
I would also suggest that in order for this to work, lest any one delegation become too powerful (as we have today) Article I Section II be enforced diligently - 1 representative per 30,000 residents. As it stands today our representatives do not share my values or our rebukes - because majority rules. But if my Congressman was recruited from the men and women in my 'burb, you can bet they'd be a little more attentive.
Back to the beginning: Would you non-Constitutionalists give the above a real, legitimate chance under the premise I articulated - especially that FedGov keeps their hands off you. Don't get too hung up on where we should draw lines - they are merely markings on paper. The important point is that we not only Restore the Constitution - but make it safer and more secure for the Citizens.
