whole argument about secession is unConstitutional. You have to have a referendum voted on by the citizens of each state. Then the legislatures of each state would have to vote. A State like North Carolina wouldn't approve of secession if you go county by county and see which ones President Obama won. It would not pass in the counties where North Carolina have their largest cities because each county voted for President Obama.

Take the capitol city of Raleigh which lies in Wake County. President Obama won that county by some 50,000 votes which wasn't even close. Then you move to Mecklenberg County which has North Carolina's largest City of Charlotte which has over 700,000 people. President Obama won that county by over 100,000 votes. Charlotte is North Carolina's largest city and Raleigh is the second largest.

President Obama also won the counties that has Greensboro,Winston Salem,Durham,Asheville and Fayetteville by significant margins. None of those counties would vote to secede from the Union and all of them have a significant minority population in those cities.

Before the Old South seceded, they voted on a referendum by each county and the news papers in those states also supported secession. Every major news paper in North Carolina supported President Obama. So the notion that North Carolina would secede from the Union is stupid and would not be supported. North Carolina's State Supreme Court is also dominated by Democrats. North Carolina's Secretary of State is a Democrat also. The best thing for a citizen of North Carolina who wants to secede from the United States is to flee the country and denounce their citizenship. That would be more easier if that is what they want to accomplish which should be the President's answer.
