Does anyone else think that there are certain topics of public discourse considered off the table from a political or socially acceptable standpoint that shouldn't be so? For example, seceding from the Union. Shouldn't that be an option for states completely fed up with the course of the country? Would we really want a state part of the USA with, say, 2/3 of it's citizens wanting out? Is leaving civil war as the only option for that state to express its desire really a good idea?
Just a thought that maybe certain topics should be more well thought through. As they say, prior planning prevents poor performance.
