Paul: But don’t they remember how we came in to our being? We used secession, we seceded from England. So it’s a very good principle.
Paul: We as a nation have endorsed secession all along. Think of all of the secession of the countries and the republics from the Soviet system. We were delighted. We love it.
Chetry: You said it’s very American to talk about secession. It’s how we came into being. 13 colonies seceeded from the British. Are you likening the current situation to life under King George?
Paul: I think a lot of people are thinking that way. And I think that’s what’s important. People are angry.
Did Ron Paul never hear about the Revolutionary War? Sure, we seceded, but at what cost?
And I am pretty certain this country did NOT endorse secession in 1861, just ask the 500,000 dead Americans.
And, while I believe in America's right to protest and to be pissed off at our leaders, can we really compare ourselves to the original Boston Tea Party persons? Really? To life under King George?
Get real, people.
