They are of the same cloth as the many pop figures who claimed they would leave the USA if Trump won. Hot air.

Surely, some of you are NOT serious! We fought a war over secession and decided the UNITED states is the way to be. Over 600,000 of us died in that conflict. No reason to do it again. I'm not grumping at just those who actually hold the view, but more at us here who 'cheer it on'.
