Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) on Monday defended various petitions to secede from the United States that popped up soon after the election, and said secession is not an unpatriotic act, but rather a "deeply American principle."
"This country was born through secession," Paul said Monday. "Some felt it was treasonous to secede from England, but those 'traitors' became our country's greatest patriots.
by that logic this country was started by a bunch of anglo saxon treasonist SOB's how does that make them great patriots? because they came here killed inslaved and confined the indigenous to reservations.
sounds like 17th century raiders raping and pillaging to their own end, ask the Native Americans the Blacks the South Americans the Mexicans how patriotic they think they are.
