All well and good had it remained a republic.

Cal, said well. Current forbearance ceases to be a virtue. Will that next point be acted out similarly ?
 -- Mike, Norwalk
 
I think it's about time for Texas to secede.

Well said! "The point at which forbearance ceases to be a virtue" indeed says it all, because Americans really do patiently bear the intolerable -- but sometimes enough is enough. Non-violent non-cooperation with unlawful statutes is our best bet -- en masse. Let the government fire the first shots at Patriots - then you will see the American spirit rise again.
 -- E Archer, NYC
