Response to Lefta Dissenter (Original post)

4. There is no textual passage in the Constitution

or the amendments that prohibits States from seceding, so first statement of that petition is incorrect.

Insurrection and rebellion are specific terms and cannot be legally used in the fashion that this petition lays out. Sedition might be a possibility.
