A small but vocal group of California residents is pushing for the Golden State to secede from the Union. While Doc Thompson thinks California's departure would damage the country, he firmly supports their right to secede because of the fundamental importance of states' rights.
"The states created the federal government, the federal government did not create the states." Doc proclaims. "The beauty of the structure of the United States is that it provides for all of this stuff. This is why I say, 'I love my country, but what I really love is the idea and the principles of my country.'"
The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson airs weekdays 6–9am ET, only on TheBlaze Radio Network
