Secession? Peaceful secession? Why would patriotic American want to do that? How, in any case, is it possible? Michael Hart lays out the answers in clear expository prose, pinned to reality at every point by historical precedent and scientific fact. The heart of his argument is a separation of the U.S.A., at county, not state, level into a rump “blue” nation purusing current federal policies and a new “red” American Federal Republic (A/F.R.)--'a constitutional republic, with civil liberties fully protected.' The A.F.R. will begin with a new Declaration--Dr. Hart provides a full text--followed by a new Constitution containing clauses to prevent the evils that today threaten our liberties.
