The right to secession -- and if absolutely necessary, even revolution -- is guaranteed by the Declaration of Independence and Article I, Section 2 of the Ohio Constitution.
“The states formed the federal government, not the other way around, and the powers they gave to the federal government they can take back. So I could see liberty-loving people flocking to different parts of the country. New Hampshire, Texas come to mind. Things go on in those states and in the government that I don’t always agree with, but they’re not as heavily regulated as, say, the People’s Republic of California or Massachusetts or New Jersey.
