Sean Hannity Web poll: 73% for secession

According to an admittedly unscientific poll on Sean Hannity's website:

Yes- I would support a States right to secede and possibly move there: 72.83%
No – I would not support it but would let them go peacefully: 8.30%
No – I would call for Civil War to stop it: 18.87%

265 voters.

I am very surprised that such a large majority favor secession, even in this kind of a poll, even on a conservative talk-radio website. Opinion appears to be changing very rapidly.

Now if there were only a North American Secessionist Congress the phones would be ringing off the hooks...as they would have been for the last several months, and as they would over the upcoming months.

NAmerican secessionists stare into a vacuum of our their own making. Opportunity comes once, quickly, and then is gone forever. I believe it was Napoleon, if I'm not mistaken: "Ground can always be regained. Time never can be."

I am one of those who would support the civil war

Whalertly:
Why shouldn't people have the government they want, instead of having one foced on them?
Wasn't that the principle behind our secession from the British Empire?

I would say not scientific.

I can't believe this open treason! The Union isn't just some club you can walk out of when you want! You have the right to vote so what are you so upset about? This is nothing like the Revolution. Shame Ohio, this makes you no better than the southern trash our ancestors so rightly ground to dust. Union Forever!

Let me ask you a few questions:

1. Why do we have a federal government?
2. If the people of a state feel that they have been consistently mistreated over a period of years by the system erected by the federal government, and lack the influence to change it, what recourse do they have?
3. Do you believe the federal government should follow the Constitution?

Two more things:
"The election of masters by the slaves does not eliminate the master-slave relationship." -- Sebastian Ronin.

"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their enemies [on the battlefield], giving them Aid and Comfort." -- Article III, Section 3, U.S. Constitution

I didn't want anyone to think that I had found the secret to time travel ;)
