51. That was my sentiment when I picked my handle when I joined DU!
Perhaps it IS time again sometime.

I think first we should put an initiative on the ballot to have a state militia that we would more heavily recruit for to do the things that the National Guard would normally do, except it would be TOTALLY under state control and couldn't get "called up" for national service. Then for starters we'd have a guaranteed force of people to protect the state against any national disasters that might happened (whether they happened to be planned by certain people or not).

And secondly, if we DO secede, they'd immediately become our "armed forces". Any military that are resident at the time of the secession would have the option of leaving or joining the militia.
