So much for democracy, surely if a referredum was held in a state and a signifigant majority (say 70%) voted to secede. Haven't the people spoken and made their wishes known?

So yes they should be allowed to leave if they have the support of the populance.
I agree.
Oh, joy, then we can bring the direct democracy of the initiative system that has been sooooo good for California to matters that decide the fate of the entire nation based on the current whims of the largely uninformed and easily swayed electorate and which special interests can spend the most money. That sounds like a recipe for quickly tearing apart the country because some people are upset that President Kenyan Muslim Socialist got reelected and is going to take their guns and ban Jesus. Good call.
