Do States Actually Have The Right To Secede?

As of this morning, 9 states secession petitions have officially met the requirements to initiate a response from President Obama.

The states include:

Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Missouri

Many other states are close to meeting the 25,000 signature threshold.

According to ABC News the White House is preparing to make a statement:

"Every petition that crosses the threshold is reviewed and receives a response," a White House official said when asked about the secession petitions. "As a rule, we don't comment on the substance of those responses until we've issued them to the petitioners."

Nations have no rights. States have no rights. Counties have no rights. Cities have no rights. Clubs have no rights. Associations have no rights.

Only people have rights, and people have the right to choose for themselves what, if any, government they wish to bind themselves.

If people wish to bind together to form an organization called "Arkansas," and if the members of this "Arkansas" organization wish to join a larger organization, or none, at all, such is the right of the people who form that organization to choose for themselves their own government.
