Moore v. Harper

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case which could cast the dye on electoral politics. Under the "Independent State Legislature" theory being argued in Moore vs. Harper,  the might rule that states have the right to appoint electors. Add to that Doug Mastriano, Pennsylvania state senator and far right Trump supporter, winning the Republican nomination for the upcoming gubernatorial race and secession will be a part of the agenda for both the right and left. In l982 Key West declared its independence as The Conch Republic. It’s motto is famously "we seceded where others failed." On a recent episode of Better Call Saul a right wing extremest of the David Koresh variety offers to pay a million dollar legal retainer with bills which he has minted and which use his own rather than Ben Franklin’s face. Is the United States on the way to fragmenting like Yugoslavia after the death of Tito? Will the US become 50 warring principalities divided like Bosnia and Serbia along religious lines?
