Well, truly: a full-on Civil War, itself, would be as welcome as Lincoln's Constitutional freelancing.
It occurs to me that every state whose governor has encouraged secession has been a conservative-led state. Meanwhile any time a non-conservative suggests that maybe things might be better elsewhere (with or without their state) they are methodically labeled as "Un-American" and formally told to STFU. So it would appear that the conservatives are far more interested in Civil War than anyone else.
That said, haven't you previously used terms similar to "Constitutional Freelancing" to describe the current POTUS (who you keep pretending to be not enormously conservative)?
But I can't go expecting a valid, balanced approach
Well, I've tried to be fair and balanced, but I keep being told I'm not "American" enough to use that terms as it belongs to someone else who is somehow more "American" than I, and I'm afraid of his teams of lawyers.
