Can you imagine a Presidential candidate talking about a right to secession and its motives, implications? Well, Ron Paul speaks about the topic in this short video below. Apparently the idea of secession is in the US media a bit because the Texas governor made some remarks regarding it. In the last 10 seconds of this video, Ron Paul says that if the dollar collapses, then the idea of states deciding to withdraw from the Federal government will gain more currency. Is he a kook or what? :)
To his credit, he says that USA encouraged the provinces of USSR to secede from that country when their economy came crashing down.
