" states in the old Confederacy or the guns and bible West - none of which being characterized as places known for their first-class educational institutions." Since you regard your fellow citizens with such utter disdain, one would think that you would be pleased to see them leave. Instead you are frothing at the mouth and threatening annihilation by the military. This strikes me as a very confused stance. I hate you but if you try to leave I will kill you? This is the sort of behavior that is often displayed in a very abusive marriage. It will be best for both groups if we are allowed to peaceably go our own ways.
"When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another ..."

So begins the Declaration of Independence of the 13 colonies from the king and country to which they had given allegiance since the settlers first came to Jamestown and Plymouth Rock.

The declaration was signed by 56 angry old white guys who had had enough of what the Cousins were doing to them. In seceding from the mother country, these patriots put their lives, fortunes and honor on the line.

Four score...
