To The Secessionists
To all of the hand-wringing, would-be secessionists, I have only a brief comment. In a democracy, the majority rules. If you object to the democratic principle, then leave with our blessing and good wishes for happiness and success. If you prefer to participate in a democratic society, and are unhappy with the election results, then make an effort through moral and/or logical argument to persuade a majority of the electorate of the justness of your position. That's the way it works.
