  1. Before and during the first part of the American Civil war, there was a procedure to secede from the Union. The Confederate States followed that procedure, making the Civil War an act of one country attacking another. Those secession laws have been changed, and it is no longer legal to secede. Both the “North” and the “South” are much better places for being together, but that doesn’t change the fact that the Confederate States did follow the proscribed protocol in their secession.

    The individuals who are wanting to say their state wants to secede can’t do so because of that change of law. They are also not speaking for the entire population of their states.
