Walter Williams asks today at Townhall.com whether we have reached the time for Parting Company. Professor Williams points out that there have been several peaceable secessions in history. I agree that it is theoretically possible. But I also have a question. What is to prevent those who are now abrogating the Constitution from infiltrating the Constitutionally governed lands and taking over again? We know going in that these people have an unquenchable thirst to impose their ideas on everyone else, whereas we just want to be left alone. So how do we protect ourselves once we, as Williams puts it, part company?
