'Good Morning, Mr. President.'

William Buppert at LewRockwell.com - an imagined conversation between the governor of Idaho and the president of the United States, announcing Idaho's secession from the union. Bravo! I'd love to witness lots of these conversations. The U.S. is way too big. It was designed as 13 separate states, with a loose federal union. It has become a behemoth. Time to split it into 50 parts. Or even more. Some of the big cities, e.g. New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, need to be removed from their associated states, so that they can no longer subsist on the slave labor of the rural folk they currently rule.

"I hope you have thought through the consequences of what you are embarking on."

"Mr. President, we have had over two hundred years to give the rulers on the Potomac a chance but that time has expired. Effective immediately, all so-called Federal lands now belong to the nation of Idaho and we will dispose of these lands at our leisure. In the interest of burying the hatchet, we will not seek compensation for the seizure, abuse and tenure of Federal practices on the aforementioned land and call the balance even."

"Those are my lands, Governor..."

"In actuality, they belong to neither of us, sir. On to other business, I have alerted my National Guard forces to establish checkpoints at all the main arterials in and out of Idaho. All National Guard forces deployed overseas will return home in the next 48 hours. I would also caution you on the use of military force to convince Idaho and its citizens to forcibly return to the yoke of the Union. Idaho has a well-deserved reputation as a rather well-equipped state in firearms possession and use. As Yamamoto said, you may find a rifle behind every blade of grass."
