On Thursday, Congressman Thomas Massie reminded his followers on Twitter that West Virginia successfully seceded from Virginia, implying that secession is technically feasible. Predictably, leftists and union loyalists condemned him viciously. Newsweek wrote an article about the Congressman who dared utter the ‘S’ word in public.
In response, Massie tweeted the article, doubling down in his support for at least discussing secession. Massie represents Kentucky’s 4th district, and he has earned a reputation as the most pro-liberty member of Congress, and possibly the most courageous and principled one.
This unprecedented conversation – a sitting congressman openly discussing secession – comes as the idea is seeing its greatest legislative success in 160 years. Just three days ago, The Liberty Block reported that the NH constitutional amendment to place the question of secession on the ballot (CACR32) was officially given a name and assigned to the House State-Federal Relations Committee, and will have a public hearing within the next few weeks.
Over the past few weeks, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene posted a Twitter poll asking if the united states should be split, and Senator Ted Cruz said that secession will be necessary if the federal government continues to grow. Over the past few months, many extremely influential conservatives, including Ben Shapiro, Matt Walsh, and Candace Owens have called for secession to be considered. Of course, the most prominent libertarians have been calling for secession for years.
While many believe that the legislation has zero chance of passing this year, it was sponsored by nine state representatives with excellent reputations among New Hampshire House members. As legislators and citizens in New Hampshire, Kentucky, and the rest of the union learn about the dozens of critical reasons to cut ties with DC politicians, state independence movements will inevitably begin to gain serious momentum, eventually leading to secession from the union. In the most polarized union we’ve ever seen, nearly everyone agrees on one thing: The USA is heading in the wrong direction.
