Because at the base level it is racism. It has always been racism. Some people do not like that we have a legitimate black and popular President and they are the loudest voices and the ones who have organized things like the Tea Party and now this faux "secessionist" movement.
Secession is not legal, it never has been since the ratification of the Constitution. The very act of secession is an act of treason and war against the rest of the states and the federal government.
Also the Declaration of Independence is not a legally binding document that applies to the laws of the United States.
Nullification has been proven to be illegal as well.
Right-wingers love to cry about precedence and the Founders, but it is blatantly obvious from both the Founding Fathers and from historical precedence that both Secession and Nullification are not the right of the Federated (not Sovereign) States that are the United States.edit on 11/14/2012 by SG-17 because: (no reason given)
