Libertarian thinking about everything.
--Ere he shall lose an eye for such a trifle... For doing deeds of nature! I'm ashamed. The law is such an ass. -- G. Chapman, 1654.

I have an idea
Let us amend the Constitution to permit any citizen to temporarily secede from the Union when government engages in conduct so asinine as to cause acute embarrassment. He or she would be required to resume citizenship only when a national poll results in a plurality agreeing that government has been returned to the hands of grown-up sentients.
(I have just consumed news reports of the congressional hearing on our narrowly averted night of horror at the hands of Michaele Salahi.)
