"Should I beg Obama for permission to secede, hoping that he won’t order armed goons to violently force me back into obeying federal 'laws' and paying federal taxes? Is that a worthwhile, or even practically realistic course of action? Even were such a pathetically symbolic gesture on my part to be successful through some Powerball-winning fluke, should I believe that a smaller 'state' government, freed from all connections with the much larger federal one, will be any picnic -- or even if so, will remain one for very long?"
