Hahahahaha hehehehe! We can barely get 20,000 people to attend
a protest rally on these subjects and you want to get them to
lay their lives, fortunes and citizenship on the line to
actually seceed from the US? It is a fun dream but I think it
is really dreamland right now. Assuming you can find these find
Libertarian brave souls, do you think they will have the means
or the will to develop a strong enough Defense to survive? Or
are we talking major technology breakthrough that throws a
forcefield around the entire state?
