Stephen Kinsella highlights comment on Secession Day article

Stephen Kinsella published an article on Mises.org entitled “Happy We-Should-Restore-The-Monarchy-And-Rejoin-Britain Day!”. Today, on the LRC blog he highlights a comment by one Bob Kaercher, including the following wonderful quote:

Why [did the Founding Fathers of the US] not declare secession from the King as free and sovereign individuals with each person being free to secede (or maybe even not to secede for those colonists who didn’t mind staying under the King’s rule) by their own lights, entering into various associations by purely voluntary choice? Why did they have to secede as “United States”? Because that was the only way that the political elites who spearheaded that “American Revolution” could maintain any power.
