You set up a strawman Ron Paul and knock him down. You are indulging in a logical fallacy for your own purposes.
Consider this possibility. People secede from the US Federal government without violence. They leave because they no longer want to be slaves. They no longer want to pay taxes under the threat of violence. Ron Paul is advocating freedom... not violence.
Sophonts ( version 2.0 ) recognize that cooperation and progress can be conducted voluntarily. They realize that skin color, gender , height , weight , .............. are ridiculous methods for categorizing people.
