    When citizens Attempt to destroy their own country isn't that considered a treasonous act?

    No state is going to secede from the Union, since no state can stand alone. it was, however, a very dramatic form of protest that demonstrated the magnitude of displeasure and urgency that many people are experiencing.

      Ok. The Articles of Confederation give the states sovereignty, but they also make it illegal for any state to secede unless the Articles are abolished. So, given that, secession is illegal. The question of treason has always been a matter of opinion.

      The Articles of Confederation were abolished in 1789. The issue of the secession has never been resolved; the Supreme's sole ruling against it was a highly disputable Radical Republican one in 1869.

    Is the USA a country, or a federation of many countries?  Surely if one or more countries break away from the federation it is not destroying them, perhaps it is weakening the federation.

      The United States is a Nation, one country.

      The nineteenth century Pledge notwithstanding, the US Constitutionally (therefore legally) is not and never has been a sovereign nation-state. It is a federation of sovereign states.

    Fascist states, and their equally fascist supporters whether of the left or right, declare the freedom to withdraw to be treasonous. No one else does.
