False, there are some people who just like the idea of secession. I have signed every secession petition possible and would have regardless of who is President. How is it a bad idea to let people who don't agree with the system to leave and start their own system thus making everyone happier.

If you don't like the government, move. No need to break our country apart.

The reason people get divided is because as governments get more centralized politics becomes more all or nothing, obviously with more federal power there is less diversity of laws throughout the country. S so it all hinges on big elections, where the losers generally tend to get mad. Allow secession and by definition there will be less resentment and divisiveness in politics because people will be governed how they want to be governed. Finally, the like it or leave it is quite a disgusting mantra. You're telling people to leave their whole lives behind; their jobs, family, friends, and communities all because you won't allow them to govern themselves.

What about the people who don't want to govern themselves? Are we suppose to just change because a few people are butthurt? It's not going to happen. There are laws against it and Texas has been trying to leave the Union for a long time and it never happens.

They can secede from the new government back into their old more preferred one. Isn't secession great! In fact, Austin Texas actually made one of these secession petitions for just that situation. Secession is something that can be done at any institutional level down to the individual themself if that is what is wanted, although at that point it might not be practical.

No secession is not great. It's stupid.
